Seattle Liberals Renaming Easter Eggs: Spring Spheres

"I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay," Jessica explained; "She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat 'spring spheres.' I couldn't call them Easter eggs.....

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?

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.

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.

You didn’t mention that.

Since you have been here, has anyone mentioned to you our 2nd amendment to our Constitution?

I would think Romania had no such laws. It’s just a good thing to know.

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.

That’s not the point pal. The real issue is these liberal nutbags hired as teachers and paid by our tax money are brainwashing and indoctrinating our children.

Amen sister!

If you’re not Christian then don’t feel like you have to celebrate our holidays any more than you feel like you have to celebrate Ramadan. Cinqo de Mayo, however, is for everybody (it’s really not so much a holiday as it is an excuse to drink).

Silly people. Easter Eggs have absolutely
nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus
Christ. Easter Eggs are already an attempt
to erase God. Interesting that they are
still convicted because the knowledge of God
the Creator cannot be erased. It is written
on their hearts.

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.

I was looking at a map that rated states on how happy they were the other day.

The number one state was TN, followed by most of the Southern States. The west coast and NE states were the most unhappy.

The person writing it up couldn’t figure it out. Perhaps it was the weather?

But I can. Liberals are always more depressed than conservatives. They don’t have religious values (which teach gratitude, worth and the love of God) and they tend to have substandard family relationships.

It’s become a Christian tradition. They symbolize new life. We always teach the “Resurrection Eggs” story at our church. And there is also an egg on the Passover plate, which makes it our tradition before it was theirs.

I’ve seen the Passover egg described as representing the Passover Sacrifice, and also as representing renewal of life.

I have no problem with symbols appropriated from other cultures hundreds of years ago. An Egg is a very good symbol to illuminate for young minds who Jesus is.

Thank you :) I completely agree with your statement and would add. If kids are taught well at home, if they have a personal relationship with Jesus, then these superficial, irrelevant when it comes to knowing God, things that the liberals are trying to change won’t affect them at all.

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.

They can only brainwash and indoctrinate those that aren’t getting good counsel at home. And who don’t have a real relationship with Jesus.

Exactly...Easter eggs have nothing to do with Christianity...they are doing this to tweak Christians, but all they are doing is making complete fools of themselves...

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.

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!

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.
