It's 2018 and NPR Doesn't Know What Christians Commemorate on Easter

Do we only publicly fund entities that don't like Christians (looking at you, Planned Parenthood)?

This may seem like I'm being a hypersensitive Christian here, but even The Washington Post said this error "practically begged Christians to renew charges that the media is biased against them."

Feeling the need to Eastersplain to their postmodern, "no objective truth" fans, someone wrote an article for the NPR website that described Easter as "the day celebrating the idea that Jesus did not die and go to hell or purgatory or anywhere like that, but rather arose into heaven."

Yeah, no.

Obviously, what is being described is the Ascension, which comes after Easter (May 13 in the Roman Rite this year).

They also got the "hell" part wrong too. As the Post article points out, we Roman Catholics and many other Christian denominations do say "he descended into hell" as part of the Apostle's Creed (which we say when praying the Rosary).
