Mychal Massie may be blaming the “godless liberals” for declaring war on Easter, but in reality it’s the very publication he writes for. The Worldnutdaily, for the second time in a week, has an article on the subject and this time they even call Easter “evil.”
The very first commandment of the Big Ten is perhaps one of the most overlooked in everyday life.
In just eight words, it states: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:3)
Sounds simple enough. Christians would never put another god in front of the true God who made the universe – right?
Most Christians, whether knowingly or unknowingly, violate this very first commandment of God each year by placing before God the actual name of a pagan goddess of fertility and the dawn.
In case you haven’t figured it out by now, her name is – believe it or not – “Easter.”
That’s correct, folks. The word Easter is actually the name of an ancient, heathen goddess who represents fertility, springtime and the dawn.
He even manages to Godwin this subject:
Perhaps if the springtime holiday were called “Hitler Sunday” or even “Satan Sunday” instead of Easter Sunday, people might have an easier time understanding the problem of attaching evil to God. Would people decorate swastikas instead of eggs and hold goose-stepping contests, all the while claiming such customs were now Christianized?
Damn. Now I think maybe I should be celebrating Easter!
