City Hall evicts Easter Bunny

This is a howler, the Easter Bunny is not even a Christian symbol. In fact it's pagan and refers too... I'll leave that alone! The funny thing about this is that the name of the city St. Paul definitely does have a strong Christian meaning. Looks like a city name change is near.

So long, Easter Bunny.

A toy rabbit decorating the entrance of the St. Paul City Council offices went hop-hop-hoppin' on down the bunny trail Wednesday after the city's human rights director said non-Christians might be offended by it.

The decorations — including the stuffed rabbit, Easter eggs and a handcrafted sign saying "Happy Easter," but nothing depicting the biblical account of Christ's death and resurrection — were put up this week in the office of the City Council by a council secretary.
