“We had in the past a parent to question us about some of the things we do here at school,”

Yes again, just one person screwed it up for everyone.

...Yep!! It only takes one pinheaded liberal to complain and by God that’s the end of that! Parents that complain about Easter being pulled can pound sand.

Heritage Elementary School principal Lydia Davenport. “So we’re just trying to make sure we respect and honor everybody’s differences.”

Liberals are just too damn stupid to realize the irony of that statement.

Have your kids wear crucifix tee-shirts, that don’t say the word “Easter” to the egg event.

Well in that case, complain about busing, complain about sex-ed and homosexuality lessons. Complain about the lack of history and economics in the curriculum, complain about teaching socialism and promoting the religion "secular humanism".

The parents should instruct their children to keep saying “Easter Egg” during the entire event.

I hope this center of liberal learning is never in the path of a violent nor'easter during school hours.

Perhaps Heritage Elementary School principal Lydia Davenport could try to make sure she respects and honors her students by keeping the word "Easter" and acknowledging that, due to diversity, not all understand what it is all about, but they are welcome to participate.

Insulting and trashing your students and their parents is not what it is all about, Lydia.

“Religious diversity.” I want to vomit. The musloids are not interested in “religious diversity.”

The irony is the whole Easter Egg thing was originally created to take the religion out of the day and make it just another secular holiday. Now even the secular creation is accused to being too religious!

It's kind of surprising, this Principal's attitude, considering her own personal story.

I guess that they'll also ban the word nor'e**ter. It's got "easter" in it. After all, if schools can come down on a little kid for chewing his pastry into what some paranoid teacher imagines is the shape of a gun, they can do just about anything.

If they insisted on calling it 'Resurrection Day' ... or 'The Greatest Day in the history of the Universe Day'... I suppose I'd be OK with that ...
but I suppose that was not their reason for banning the word 'Easter'...

Govt Schools just love it when one parent or one they “made up” claims to have an issue with something they hate.

Religious diverstiy doesn’t mean wiping out all traits of JUST ONE religion. That’s exclusive censorship of JUST ONE religion.

Just keep looking up, this country is fallen with Bush1, Clinton, Bush II, The Foreign Usurper. Things are in motion and they are not going to stop. They will get worse, it’s the inertia and momentum and things based on lies and theft always in the end break down and everyone suffers for it. Nobody will stop Obama bringing the last superpower down and destroying the economy and our savings. The entire world is against Israel, like why this one small patch of land nobody was interested in until the Jews were back there, then we’re led to believe if we just get rid of this one “problem” overnight all our problems with muslims and the middle east will just go away. Riiiiiight.

Keep looking up every day. Getting real close. If oyu have someone you’d like to make sure is saved, pray for an opportunity and heck, make one and talk to them. Do it with someone you have a relationship with and knows you are genuinely concerned about them.

Alabama’s government has pretty much been controlled by the AEA for as long as I remember. George Wallace was a strong supporter of the AEA.

And that, my friends, is why we should separate school and state.

...and yet this school will probably welcome some Moslem appreciation week - where everyone dresses accordingly and fast on FRI - pray towards Mecca - construct paper mache IED’s — you know - to broaden the minds of the young children...

They’d better start using north, south, west, and anti-west too, cuz some goofball religion might thing “east” was short for “Easter”.

I know I’d be offended /sarc

Well I don't like the term "eggs" I prefer to call them "poultry fetuses."

From the story at the link: “After 17 blood transfusions, over 10, 000 pints of plasma, 10 specialists, more than 75 nurses, and too many doctors to count, Davenport was finally able to return to her position as principal of Heritage Elementary, but not without preparation.”

I wonder who footed the bill for that? Yes, if Obama had a sister...

The insurance company. Happens all the time for both public and private sector workers. Having cost my insurance a solid six figures for something I needed, I won’t begrudge the Principal this. I just find it interesting she begged for Jesus and God to help her, then she denies them in her job. I wonder if she denied knowing Jesus three times.

Absolutely! IRONIC—and funny as hell!

“The irony is the whole Easter Egg thing was originally created to take the religion out of the day and make it just another secular holiday.”

Ishtar is the Assyrian and Babylonian goddess of fertility, war, love, and sex.

The progs and liberals’ heads would explode if they knew they were actually protesting this!!!! HA! HA!

Things are changing now that we got a Republican Legislature. AEA is fighting us tooth and nail.
