That’s just your opinion driven by a fundamentalist view of Christianity and rigid interpretation of the Bible.
There are hundreds of millions of Eastern Orthodox Christians celebrating the Easter tradition with red dyed eggs and red wine dipped sweet bread. This traditional Easter fare is documented to date since the Apostle Andrew christened the region around the North-Eastern side of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, 2000 years ago. And now you are you accusing all those Orthodox Christians following his teachings of heresy?
You know, the way you are arguing religion has more in common with the Wahhabbist branch of Islam than with Christianity: only your own religious beliefs are true, anyone else is either an apostate or an infidel.

Stonyburk made a good point.
Linking him to Islam is extreme
and uncalled for. Please stop.

Because the Eastern Orthodox Christians cellebrate according to their traditions is no excuse for the paganism.The Original
texts -and unless I am mistaken the only verse in the Bible where the English term Easter is used to translate from the Greek -pascha=the Passover-is in Acts chapter 12 verse 4-
Easter is a heathen term derived from the Saxon goddess Eastre,the same as Astarte the Syrian Venus,called Ashtoreth in the Old Testament.You are entitled to your opine ,sir-as I am my own.But when you compare me to any Muslim it only displays your extreme Ignorance.
