Spring Spheres

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

First, it was changing the name of an Easter Egg Hunt as to not upset the non-Christians, because that is what we do in America nowadays — we anger the Christians as to make the non-Christians feel better.

Now, this:

A sophomore at a local private high school thinks an effort to make Easter politically correct is ridiculous.

Jessica, 16, told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson Showthat a week before spring break, the students commit to a week-long community service project. She decided to volunteer in a third grade class at a public school, which she would like to remain nameless.

“At the end of the week I had an idea to fill little plastic eggs with treats and jelly beans and other candy, but I was kind of unsure how the teacher would feel about that,” Jessica said.

She was concerned how the teacher might react to the eggs after of a meeting earlier in the week where she learned about “their abstract behavior rules.”

“I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay,” Jessica explained. “She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat ‘spring spheres.’ I couldn’t call them Easter eggs.”

I guess this would help the people who want to change the name of an Easter Egg Hunt. Now they can call it “The Springtime Sphere Roll.”

What’s next? Sugar Free Peeps?

We have gone through the looking glass.
