The flyers were handed out at public schools and referenced an Easter egg hunt at a nearby Christian church. So, some Muslim parents get an outrage twofer: They can claim bias against Muslims and play the old atheist trick of claiming that passing the flyer out at public schools violates the separation of church and state.

The Daily Caller:

The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn.

The flyer urges students to RSVP “to secure your free spot,” note the Free Press. The associated imagery includes a festive bunny and some eggs.

The event will feature a traditional Easter egg hunt as well as an egg toss and a relay race.

“It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni told the Free Press. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.”

Right after the page break, I am calling BS on that parent.

When I was a child, our schools had a large percentage of Jewish children. The only concession made to them is that tests were not given on Jewish holidays. They were not required to attend school that day, but were expected to 'catch up'
We had Christmas and Easter events (we even had a chapter of the YMCA). I do not remember any of the Jewish kids or parents complaining. Other than some of them tending toward Geek, they all seemed to develop into normal human beings, and presumably outstanding members of the Jewish community.
Tolerance means to tolerate. The Muslim and Progressive communities need lessons in both manners and English.

Why, then a sort-of solution presents itself. The very next time - and every time hence - that some Muslim demands Halal food in school, prayer time, abulation places, etc., just tell them that it can't be done - it'd violate the Separation of Church and State.

Ironically, this is using Saul Alinsky against them - "make them live up to their own rules." How do you like it now? Oh? Don't like it when it works against you?

Too frakking bad, you made your bed, now lie in it.

If these flyers had been handed out at a "community center" or other such venue, the muslims would probably be complaining because thier kids had not been invited.

The only thing that pleases muslims is total submission to their wishes. Screw'em!

That's about all the country gets out of the "Muslim Community". Complaints, whining, screaming about unfairness and overt hatred of any other religious group in America. There is a simple solution for unhappy Muslims; you can return to whatever Islamic hell hole you came from and live there happily ever after. Maybe what we need is a fund that can be tapped to help those poor unhappy Muslims on their way with a "no refund" one way ticket out of America with an attachment they can never ever return, not them, not their offspring, not their grandparents or cousins, not their wives or husbands nor any member of their family forever and ever.

Interesting since Islam does not recognize a separation between religion and state.

All they have to do is keep their kids home. Nobody was forcing them to go.

I can see how Easter Egg hunts have Muslims upset.
After all, in their countries, when someone is hiding an object in an area frequented by children, it's usually a bomb.

Muslim immigrants...who, bail out on their own Nations, bringing with them a lack of "where with all", to put up a fight for Freedom. A foreign people, laden with an attitude of no regard nor respect for America's Christian founders.
These people elect to take advantage of the people in America, whose families maintained their Nation and many have given their lives for Freedom. Establishing a Nation under God, with a constitution to protect the citizens from government.
Muslims immigrants, paid no price for America's Constitution, but are eager to grip the constitution and translate the document for their self serving tactics. The name for their actions is termed: Bully, whom, takes others assets, with threats of harm, then returns time after time to taunt and rob their victim of his freedom.

I think we should change it to the Easter Pig. The Easter Bunny is apparently to easy to attack.

"My son said he is very concerned about the proliferation of religious activities and events at his public school that do not conform to our beliefs, and that he wishes his school would honor the Constitutional provision for the separation of church and state. Didn't you say that, son?"

"Huh?"

*Ahem* "You said it to me while you were playing that video game you like so much."

"Oh, yeah. Right, mom. The Constitution and stuff."

Senator Leland Yee, al Qaeda, and the MILF
http://nyyrc.com/blog/2014/04/senator-leland-yee-al-qaeda-and-the-milf/

Considering the Obama administration’s implicit and explicit support in ousting Egyptian Hosni Mubarak, Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi (both whom were subsequently replaced by Muslim Brotherhood governments), and the administration’s ongoing attempts to force Bashar Assad to cede control of Syria to al Qaeda rebels, the transgressions of Senator Yee highlight yet again a disturbing trend in the American government to provide aid and comfort to al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. If Senator Yee is found guilty of his crimes, he should be charged with treason and sentenced accordingly. The weapons he was planning to sell would have been used to murder and kidnap innocent civilians, and likely have been used in the violence of human trafficking.

There is absolutely no way that Americans can look at this situation and not be outraged, even deeply alarmed. Since 9/11, the government was supposed to be separating terrorists and terrorist sympathizers from the civilized world, not using their positions of public influence and stature to prop up barbarians. Provided the evidence holds up in court, Yee should be made an example of, using all laws on the books to ensure he gets what he deserves, in a very public way.

There is a day of reckoning coming. The western governments can all lie about Islamic intent. But it is the same as when a judge tells a jury, "Disregard the last statement." Uh huh. Right. Government, you can lie all you want. They seem to be saying to us, "What are you going to believe? Us or your lying eyes?" I see what's going on all over the world. So do millions of others. I feel bad for really innocent people because it is going to get to the point of act now, ask questions later. Sorry, "true believers" you will have brought this on yourself. You should have reined in your dogs.

I learned all I needed to learn about Izlam by the slaughter of Nick Berg and Daniel Pearl. And they were just the beginning. Every day Christians are slaughtered by Moes all over the middle east and Africa. Payback is going to be total and devastating.
