Poland plans on banning all Easter Bunny imagery

Draconian laws are NEVER okay!

Don’t allow the Polish government to ban the Easter Bunny! Sign the petition now!

Calling the Easter Bunny an “unnecessary distraction from the joy of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion,” the Polish government has announced plans to ban all Easter Bunny imagery this year, for fear it is marginalizing the true message of Easter.

Over the weekend, Prime Minister Donald Tusk met with Catholic officials, including Kraków arch-bishop Stanisław Dziwisz, to discuss the proposed ban and assess the economic impact the move would have on Poland’s emerging economy, as well as how to handle any unforeseen unrest it may cause among the Easter Bunny’s most staunch supporters.

The ban is being fiercely opposed by the chocolate industry, especially Polish chocolate maker E. Wedel. The company is leading the charge against the draconian law, stating that “the government can’t possibly expect us to take this lying down. An attack on the Easter Bunny, and especially on chocolate, goes against everything that Jesus Christ taught us! He sacrificed himself so that you and I can enjoy our fine E. Wedel chocolates on the day of his death, as God meant us to!”

    As an American of Polish descent and a Catholic I believe that the true message of Easter is the joy of JESUS CHRIST’S RESURRECTION which is the triumph over His death on the Cross. There might have been an error in translation when I read … “unnecessary distraction from the joy of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion,” IAlso, it looks like another mistake in Mr. Wedel’s remark about enjoying ” … fine E. Wedel chocolates on the day of his death, as God meant us to!” We who celebrate Easter after the 40 days of prayer and fasting and soul searching of Lent are celebrating the Joy of the Resurrection which means New Life.
