Heroes: Dearborn Muslim Parents Oppose Pagan Easter Egg Hunt

You'd think Americans would be happy that Muslims in Dearborn were unhappy with fliers for an Easter Egg hunt being distributed in their children's school. Well the right wing are using it to bash Muslims.

How weird is this. Americans claim their country is Christians, yet when Muslims oppose the pagan practice of Easter Eggs we see Muslims getting criticised by some quarters. Islamophobia blinds people. Christians should salute the Muslim parents in Dearborn who stood up against this pagan practice rather than criticise.

Perhaps the Christians who are criticising these Muslim parents were simply unaware of the paganism behind the Easter Egg tradition.

Here's a reminder of the pagan origins of the Easter bunny and eggs:

Easter Eggs: Eggs have been mythological symbols of birth for thousands of years. Christians adopted the egg as an Easter custom around the 13th century. Jesus never taught this practice of the Easter egg - he never practiced such.

Easter Bunny: The rabbit had long been a symbol of fertility and new life in European pagan customs. Christians adopted the rabbit around the 16th century.

Bunnies are a leftover from the pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2010/apr/03/easter-pagan-symbolism

However, putting aside the origin of the Easter egg, one would not expect MUSLIM parents to be happy if they felt their children were being subjected to a propaganda campaign to convert to Christianity. One would expect the Muslim parents to raise their concerns at the very least.

What happens when the Muslims do this? A bunch of right wingers start attacking them. Disgusting.

A report about the Muslim hero, Majed Moughni, who mentioned his theory that Christians are trying to convert Muslim children to Christianity and spoke out against the fliers promoting this Easter Egg hunt:

A Michigan public school district has angered Muslim parents by handing out a flyer promoting an Easter egg hunt at a local church.

Moms and dads say the advertising of the "Eggstravaganza!" event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn is a "clear violation" of the separation of church and state — and that teachers paid for by the taxpayer should not be promoting activities organized by a church.
"It really bothered my two kids," Majed Moughni, whose 7- and 9-year-old children attend Dearborn elementary schools, told the Detroit Free Press.

"My son was like, 'Dad, I really don't feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.'"

Moughni also said he feared "Christians are trying to convert Muslim kids through propaganda distributed at public schools."

Muslims against terrorism

Christians having dreams and converting to Islam:

Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.
