A Very Muppet Easter

So it's that time of the year again where we go through the age old battle that has been going on for centuries, the battle to prove the "real" meaning of easter. The contenders? Jesus Christ vs the easter bunny.  Now one thing that I find interesting is that in church there are so many songs about how magnificent, powerful, and wonderful Jesus Christ is,  full of glory and splendor.  And it is amazing to see religious people go through lengths to defend Jesus against some 4 legged creature that hops and nibbles on carrots (although my rabbit is "bananas" about bananas).  I would like to take this time to point out that normally in a match the majority of the time the two contenders have to agree to fight each other.

If this was some kind of match, do you seriously think that the son of God would actually agree to go about against one of God's creatures about a fraction of his size?  And if he is as powerful as we sing or say that we believe he is, then he should also be capable of holding his own without feeling threatened by easter egg hunts or the presence of a beloved pet bunny. Jesus vs the easter bunny......I think this is a case where neither contender asked or agreed to be in a match. We often talk about how Jesus came and died and gave the greatest gift of all. Maybe this easter, the greatest gift we can give these two is to take them out of the fighting ring and actually let them enjoy easter :)
