    And remember that “Easter” was a Phoenician holiday celebrating the coming of Spring, when Astarte would make things new and plants would grow again.Christians “hijacked” this holiday to get the non-believers to celebrate Christ with them.

    “Good Christians” have used their faith to celebrate all religious holidays with the true music of their cathedrals, the “Kia-Ching” of the cash registers in their stores, now converting to the “ding” of your emal confirming your online purchase!

    Too bad we Americans keep buying more weapons from the MIC to keep the Pentagon folks busy planning more ways to avoid peace, anywhere in the world we seek to dominate. (While keeping the populace terrified of their own shadows with such as ISIL so the con can continue to profit.)

    Peace be with you. Otherwise known as humanities shattered dream.

    We live in a country where about 70% (and steadily declining) self-asses themselves as Christians, so, to do business, one must attempt to have some respect for beliefs other than one’s own. Religion, if nothing else, gives people a feeling of tradition in a world in which change in occurring at an ever accelerating rate … religious holidays: mileposts to let us know how fast we’re moving. I’m pretty sure, that if religion did not exist, we’d have to invent it. It works well to curb the aggression that might occur if there were not a hereafter to put one’s faith in as the ultimate reward for coping with inequity.Celebrating spring’s arrival based a certain day of the week after a full moon, after the vernal equinox adds a little randomness to the tradition … a nice wobbly tradition.
