In St. Paul, Minnesota the city’s human rights director banned the display of the Easter Bunny because it might offend non-Christians.

March 25, 2006 — Here’s the opening sentence from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star-Tribune: ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A small Easter display was removed from the City Hall lobby on Wednesday out of concern that it would offend non-Christians.

The story went on to explain that a secretary decorates her area, which is apparently near or in the office lobby, for each holiday. This time it was “a cloth Easter bunny, pastel-colored eggs and a sign which said ‘Happy Easter.’” This, apparently, enraged the city’s human rights director because it negated, damaged or threatened somebody’s human rights. This tower of Midwestern cultural nobility, Tyrone Terrill, said that nobody had complained to him about it, and no city money was used to finance the display, so his actions clearly are signs that we are looking at the man’s character, here.
