Today I released a new TektonTV vid responding to ProfMTH’s vid making a big issue of Easter as a “pagan” holiday.
Whoop dee doo.
To his credit, at least he’s not pushing “pagan copycat” crap…yet. But he is trying to inspire guilt in Christians by hollering that Easter eggs, bunnies, etc. are derived from pagan symbols.
My reply: Yes – and so what?
As I explain in the vid, ancient deities like Semiramis aren’t getting any favors or service out of any of this egg rolling or chocolate bunny eating. If anything, they’d be tremendously insulted that we trivialized their sacred symbols and practices by turning them into children’s toys and games. It’s the honor-equivalent of writing a Bible verse on a sheet on Charmin – then using it.
The only real question is why a fundy atheist like ProfMTH sees fit to even make this an issue. Unfortunately, the most likely answer by far is that he just wants to disturb gullible and ignorant Christians. Which means…he’s going to stay in my gunsights along with a few others on YT. Huh huh huh huh huh. (Check the vid for the joke.)
I have appointments tomorrow, so the Forge will return Tuesday.
