pick your battles

Earlier this week I quoted from an article that described the pagan fertility symbols that we now associate with Easter. Even the word "Easter" comes from pagan tradition. In most other languages, the word for Easter comes from the Hebrew word for "Passover." The English equivalent would be "paschal."

Last December I wrote several times about the secularization of Christmas. Today's New York Post says that the head of the Catholic League is objecting to the removal of the word Easter from mall displays and egg hunts. Shouldn't it be the pagans who are upset about this, instead of the Christians?
