It's warm, windy and humid here. Springtime in Houston.
The Easter bunny is not welcome at St. Paul's City Hall. He was removed along with a Happy Easter sign so as not to offend anyone.
OK. We realize the Easter bunny is not a religious symbol, right? I don't think he is mentioned in the Bible, but maybe I just overlooked that passage. I don't want to alarm anyone but he also doesn't really lay eggs.
I think I would like the employees of St. Paul's City Hall. They decided to stage a "Peep" protest under a statue called The Vision of Peace. "Peeps, it's pretty funny cause it peeps instead of peace," laughed attorney and city hall employee Maureen Dolan. So it is called the Peeps Protest and the colorful and sugary treats are being brought in to make a display of their own.
The St. Paul Human Rights Office announced that its director has no further comment on the Easter bunny brouhaha.
The ACLU of Minnesota, through one of its attorneys, states that according to law, the Easter bunny is secular and the greeting Happy Easter is religious. But allowing the bunny at City Hall? The ACLU would not have challenged it. Probably. So they say.
Power to the Peeps!
