The influence of The Passion of the Christ has proven to be widespread and various (recall the criminal confession and heart attack stories). So I can't say I'm entirely surprised to hear about this perversion of Easter:
Now, is this straight-forward iconoclasm, or is it a genuine confusion about the symbology of modern Easter? Not that the symbology makes any sense to begin with (bunnies don't lay eggs, eggs have no connection to chocolate, and all of the above bear only a tenuous relation to Christ's resurrection). From the beginning, Easter was the Christian co-opting of a pagan ritual of fertility (honoring the Saxon goddess, Eastre, to whom the ever-breeding rabbits were sacred). Then the rabbit picked up some magical, colored-egg hiding tendencies from old German lore. Finally, and obviously: enter merciless American commercialism.
For a holiday subject to so many unrelated cultural influences, I'm almost a little worried that Mel Gibson's peculiar Christian savagery will make yet another contribution to this holiday nonsense. But somehow I think people would rather the Easter Bunny not bear that cross.
