Just in case you thought the chasing of religion away from public spaces had gotten as silly as it possibly could:
So long, Easter Bunny.
A toy rabbit decorating the entrance of the St. Paul City Council offices went hop-hop-hoppin' on down the bunny trail Wednesday after the city's human rights director said non-Christians might be offended by it.
The decorations — including the stuffed rabbit, Easter eggs and a handcrafted sign saying "Happy Easter," but nothing depicting the biblical account of Christ's death and resurrection — were put up this week in the office of the City Council by a council secretary.
City Council Member Dave Thune makes the mistake of lapsing into logic where none is called for or desired: "I absolutely wonder how colored eggs and bunnies and chickens are Christian," Thune said. "I'm a little puzzled how people can be offended." Silly man -- "being offended" is the new American pastime.
