Muslim parents in Dearborn, Michigan are distressed over a ridiculous ordeal after elementary school students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church.
The parents say the egg hunt “violates the U.S. Constitution”.The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!”
They were also “troubled” by images of a bunny rabbit.
“It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “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.’ ”
The school district did not comment and the pastor of the church said there’s nothing remotely religious about the event.
“Part of our efforts in Dearborn is to invite the community to let them know we’re here,” Pastor Neeta Nichols told the newspaper. “We’re offering various kinds of programming, fun opportunities, so what we can be engaged with the community.”
No, sir, there is no law in the constitution excluding the free exercise of religion. ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof’…is there a state religion, or does this flyer stop you from handing out your own secular or Muslim flyer? No. Is the free exercise of a religion being performed here? No, because it wasn’t a religious event…I have never read anything in the Bible about finding chocolate eggs. But even if it was religious, they had a right…until you stomped on it. Separation of Church and State is NOT in the constitution.
You want to do a secular or Muslim event, you are free to do so. That’s what’s great about America. You can worship the God of your choosing without having to worry about getting your head sawed off.
So shut the hell up, and enjoy the right, and stop stomping on everyone else’s. See, we talked it through…a lot better than blowing things up, am I right?
