My blood is boiling with anger because this strikes me at a very personal level. I was born and raised in communist Romania. During my military service I spent two Easter holidays aboard my ship, a submarine hunting frigate based in the Constanta harbor. (More of my story at the link).

We are pissed too. Our ancestors came here in order to observe religious freedoms.

It would seem Romania is more free than the US of A.

Weird huh?

I get it. Drive Christianity and Christians out, in favor of the ROP.

Grrrrrr.....

Leftist fools even amiss associating the word ‘easter eggs’ with Christianity. Easter or Ishtar was an ancient god of fertility that previous pagans like themselves introduced into the christian holiday of Christ ressurection. They can deny Christ when they meet Him down on their knees someday.

This is why homeschooling is seeing a huge increase in America as parents try to prevent their kids from being destroyed by the Government

That city is diseased with liberalism. It is rapidly becoming a northern annex of San Fransickness.

When I was stationed at FT Lewis, my wife and I used to go to Seattle on the weekends. Even in the 1980’s that place was a freak show. And it has gone steadily downhill from there.

Seattle has one of the highest incidences of depression and suicide rates of any major city in the country. I used to think it had a lot to do with the rain and ever present overcast. The old saying was that people in Seattle didn’t tan, they rusted. Now I am beginning to think the weather was only a minor contributor and it was the self loathing aspect of that mental illness liberalism that is the major contributor.

Well, I think of it like this. Let’em call them what they want, they think they are making a point but, they really aren’t. There stupid eggs not the real reason why we celebrate Easter anyway. And the Easter eggs are actually pagan and have nothing to do with Christianity. So I say, let them knock themselves out. And while there at it, they can change Santa’s name too and take down all Christmas trees. It doesn’t change who God is or why Jesus died.

Spheres?

Why not call them "Spring eggs"? Is there something wrong with eggs that even they must be renamed?

How do I break the news to my chickens that they are laying spheres?

Coming to a supermarket near you 4 types of eggs: Winter spheres, Spring spheres, Summer spheres and Autumn spheres.

It seems the latest fad is to rename things.

Easter itself is a perversion of Christianity. In the original text it was Passover/pasha that was celebrated by the First Century Christians.neither Paul—nor any of the eyewitnesses to Christ would have dared confuse Easter with its pagan symbology with a Holy day.I find it poetic justice that those who have rejected this nations founding Religion and Morality are now so ignorant that they confuse this paganism with Christianity.... and now refuse to call Easter Eggs what they are because of the taint of a relation with Christianity.

Let’s name “democrats,” “progressives” and “liberals” what they truly are: “communists.”

If your blood boils, you'll have a nice hard boiled sphere, bathed in the blood of Jesus.

I love God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit. I love God's Word, the Bible. God tells us to hide His Word in our hearts. Study His Words and know them. No one can steal that from us. God's Word and Promises are so "cool".

An egg is a symbol. It's a thing. It's perfect. It's fragile yet sturdy. It's delicious. It's nutritious. It's versatile. It can be eaten and it can be decorated. It can be used as paint - Gesso. An egg is so amazing. They can take an egg and rename it to whatever they want, decorate it however they want, but it will never change the true meaning of it. Deep down inside, everyone knows the true symbolic meaning of the Easter Egg.

Jesus is bigger and mightier than an egg. He created it. I'd bet He doesn't care what the egg is called because He knows that His people know the true meaning they have given to this symbol.

Let's see them try to explain the easter bunny and how a bunny can lay an egg. That is so twisted! mind boggling!

A "spring sphere" just makes no sense at all. If anything, it will make a child ask (hopefully) what is a spring sphere and why celebrate it. Some genius dufus will have to explain it and The Resurrection of Jesus Christ will come up. it can't be hidden. There's no escaping it.

Have you ever read books by Corrie Ten Boom? What I received from her books is that God will take care of the details. Circumstances may not be cozy, but He will be there in the midst of those who seek Him.

I'd bet God is laughing at this sphere thing. Laugh with Him.

God Bless you!

Jesus is alive!
