These bums think they're getting in a dig at Christianity with this nonsense, but the actual derivation of Easter comes from the Anglo-Saxon pagan goddess Eostre. So they are really taking a dig at paganism, which they probably like more than Christianity, they just aren't smart enough to know it. Christians celebrate the Resurrection of Christ, the Risen Lord. If anything, it is more closely associated with the Jewish Passover, since that was what Jesus was celebrating at the time of his crucifixion.

Long time before that it was about the Babylonian god Tammuz (son of Nimrod and Semiramis) with Tammuz being risen from the dead at sunrise. Egyptians celebrated a sunrise service also with Horus (son of Osiris and Isis) being raised from the dead.

Semiramis, Isis, Ishtar, Mary and all it’s derivatives are one in the same. Same with Tammuz, Horus, Jesus and all its derivatives.

If you think I’m making it up just do your research into the syncretism of Jewish and pagan beliefs that resulted in Christianity. Same with Islam. Islam was created from the syncretism of pagan Arab beliefs and Jewish ones as well as Christian, Hindu, and Zoroastrian.
