Sarah Palin Claims Jesus Celebrated Easter

Oct 23, 2013

061713_atss_640-e1372211127213-257x170Sarah Palin claimed today that Jesus Christ celebrated Easter during his time on Earth.

In an interview with Fox and Friends this morning, the former Alaska governor promoted her new book about the left's "war on Christmas" and argued that all Christian holidays should return to the traditional versions practiced by Jesus.

"It makes me so gosh darn angry," Palin explained. "The liberal left in this country has targeted Christian holidays and is trying to secularize them right out of existence.

"When Jesus celebrated Easter with his disciples there were no Easter bunnies or egg hunts. There were no Easter sales at department stores or parades in the street. Easter was a special time of prayer and Christian activism.

"Jesus would gather all the townspeople around and would listen to their stories about the meaning of Easter in their lives. Then he would teach them how to love one another, how to protest Roman abortion clinics and how to properly convert homosexuals.

"You can't even do things like that these days without getting called out by some wacko left-wing human rights group. Christians had more freedom under Roman rule than we do now in our own country! We need to return Easter back to the way it was when Jesus was alive."

Gospel of Palin 

Easter is a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after he was crucified by the Romans in the 1st century A.D. It is the most important holiday for Eastern and Orthodox Christians, and also has great significance in the West.

Because Easter is a celebration of Jesus's resurrection from the dead, it is highly unlikely that he celebrated the holiday before his death. Its first recorded instance is sometime in the mid-2nd century. This seemingly obvious fact was not lost on the Fox and Friends team, who instantly challenged Palin's assertions.

"Sarah, you know that we love you," started co-host Brian Kilmeade. "I can understand if you think Christian holidays have become too secular and you want to return to the days of the early church. But you have to know that Jesus never celebrated Easter right? I mean you have to know that. What do you think Easter celebrates?"

"Well, Brian, Easter celebrates, you know, sticking it to all the liberal lefties out there who want to be taking our guns and our freedom," Palin responded. "It celebrates the rights of the unborn and the right to religious freedom, to not have government come in and tell you who to believe in and who not to ..."

"It celebrates the death and resurrection of Jesus," Kilmeade interrupted. "It celebrates his death and resurrection from the dead. Now Sarah, tell me how can Jesus celebrate his own death before he died?"

Palin stared blankly into the screen for about 15 seconds, before co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck cut to commercial.

    Is it just me, or are most atheists and agnostics more familiar with the Bible than most Christians?

  • Apathy

    I know this is satire but I could actually believe she would say something like this…..and to think she could have had the launch codes had McCain been elected.

  • http://politicalgates.blogspot.com Patrick – Politicalgates

    That’s really excellent! Many thanks! Please write more satire pieces about Sarah Palin, and also Ted Cruz – never before was satire so REAL! :-)

  • Robyn Ryan

    Ask any Christian why Easter is a movable feast. Hint: It falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox.

  • Dave

    secularize is a pretty big word for this very dull tool.

  • ORAXX

    It isn’t just you. Several studies have revealed atheists to have a much better understanding of religion, and its history, than believers. Atheists don’t turn away from religion because they lack information.

  • ORAXX

    The problem with satirizing Sarah Palin is,……..this story could easily be true. John McCain tried to place moose hunter Barbie, a heart beat from the presidency.

  • White__Rabbit

    I agree 100% that the christian holidays should traditional versions. However the true “traditional versions” are Pagan NOT christian. If Jesus actually practiced any of these holidays he was in fact celebrating Pagan holidays NOT christian ones. The christian holiday was not even started until A. D. 354 (A.D. meaning after death, as in Jesus’ death).

  • Barbara F.

    So funny! Sarah…there was NO EASTER till Jesus died and was resurrected, you moron!

  • jawillie

    The sad thing about this is that this could just as easily be a REAL story and not just satire. Scary, actually.

  • Bob Lawrence

    Well, actually, AD is latin for Anno Domino (“in the year of our Lord”). Scholars now use the designation CE, representing “common era” and BCE (before common era). But, you are absolutely right that the celebration of Easter did not begin until many years after Jesus died, and its roots are pagan, not Christian. Prior to the marriage between Christian leaders and the state, followers of “The Way” focused on the life and teachings of Jesus, and that the expected result of doing so was death, as happened to Jesus. It wasn’t until Christianity became a tool of the state that the message was subverted to remove any references to working against occupying powers and, instead, focused on using “the promise of Easter” as a way to keep people in line (by using the false lure of “behave now so you can have something better in the sweet by and by”). However, the date it is celebrated is tied to the Jewish lunar calendar. So, yeah…. people who claim it as a purely Christian holiday have no idea, especially when their view of Christianity is based upon American Civil Religion.

    It would be all too easy to believe. She really is *that* stupid.

  • David Anthony Neal

    Like something from The Onion..

  • jaymonster

    I actually believed this up until the point where the story said that the obvious facts weren’t lost on the Fox and Friends hosts. That was where it became obvious that this was satire.

  • Rocky

    You sound so clever there DeeDEE.

  • CowtownBassGirl

    The celebrations that Jesus participated in were Jewish. Passover occurs at the same time as Easter and aligns nicely with the “Last Supper” timeline. Clever of the ancient Roman Church to also link pagan spring rituals to not cause too much consternation in the conquered masses.

    You’re the MORON who thinks this is real it’s Satire you MORON TWIT,

    You must be a low info voter.

  • Joseph Pulvirenti

    Hey Palin, where is your love for all man kind no matter what is their sexuality. You forgot something…Jesus did not discriminate or judge….nor did he condemn homosexuals or convert them to be straight. Before Christians became the popular religion they were fed to the lions and you want to back to that!

  • Tim

    Someone please tell me there is a video of this?

  • DeeDEEthree

    You MORON FOOL it’s Satire.
    You STUPID IDIOT

    You must be one of those IDIOT Low info MORON’S that voted for Obama.

    Wow I can’t believe the IDIOTS (YOU) that Populate the earth.

    You are another MORON who believes this IS real it’s satire.

  • LiberalTimeLord

    Absolutely amazes me!

  • george_porg

    Jesus celebrated Passover, not Easter

  • DeeDEEthree

    The only people who would even think a little that this is real would be MORONS.

    Which means that you are a BIG FAT MORON.

  • Louis Perez

    GOTCHA!!!!!

  • Louis Perez

    This going to be good, thanks for the comedy Sarah.

  • DeeDEEthree

    What that you’re a MORON TWIT that you believe this is real.
    It’s satire you FOOLISH IDIOT.

  • DeeDEEthree

    The only Laughs are when you look at yourself in the mirror.
    You are another MORON who believes this is real it’s Satire you IDIOT.

  • george_porg

    The Holiday Easter is celebrates death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Jesus was a Jew who celebrated Passover. Palin is a fundamentalist Christian and does not know that? Clearly Passover foreshadowed Jesus’ death (the blood of the lamb was brushed on the doors of the slaves homes and those households were “passed over” by the Angel of death)

    Maybe she “misspoke”

  • CrushinCalabrese

    Wow you have no life DeeDEEthree. Awwww everyone is laughing at Sarah Palin (hugs) – you are such a great defender. Resorting to name calling. Everyone is a moron. Creative as well! You really should reevaluate who you follow and especially defend…still sour because your party lost the election.

  • CrushinCalabrese

    When were you released from the hospital?

  • DeeDEEthree

    Another MORON who believes this is real, it’s Satire YOU MORON TWIT.

  • dave w

    The only thing Moronic is you defending Palin. Only an idiot would defend an idiot. Very sad really.

    Really? The only thing Moronic is you defending Palin. Only an idiot would defend an idiot. Very sad really.

  • dave w

    Dude, The only thing Moronic is you defending Palin. Only an idiot would defend an idiot. Very sad really.

  • scrotymcboogerballs

    I have one of the highest averages in my Judaic Heritage class as an atheist. The class is predominantly Jewish in make-up. Not Christian, I know, but it’s across the board apparently when it comes to atheists knowing quite a bit more, on average, than theists.

  • DeeDEEthree

    The only thing MORONIC is you.
    It is really scary that there are such MORONS(YOU) that populate the earth no wonder the country is going to H E L L it’s because people like you who are allowed to leave the mental institutions.

  • Not DumDeeDEEthree

    DeeDee, you need to climb down off that cross, you don’t belong there. So stop acting as if you do. your constant “big moron” and “stupid” comments say more about you than any defense you may be trying provide Sarah. I hope at some point you stop being mis-informed, and stop defending the low-informed such as Sarah. I don’t think Sarah can help it, I think she was born with a low I.Q. What’s your excuse? Best of luck to you in the future.

  • cerealspiller

    Step away from the CAPS!

  • DeeDEEthree

    Witchypoo your the only IDIOT/MORON.

    You actually believed this was true.
    You probably voted for Obama that would explain your MORONICNESS.

  • DeeDEEthree

    I bet you believe that there are 57 States just like your Master the Obamanation.

    Why don’t you go back to playing kissyface with your Obama blowup doll

  • DeeDEEthree

    I believe that it is you who is a STUPID IDIOT for believing that satire is real.
    Please go and find a brain because you seem to have lost yours.

  • Jackie Rawlings

    Sarah only wants people to buy her book to support her family. As other topics Sarah the Tea Party Queen knows nothing and she just talks to hear herself talk.

  • name

    there were no laws against celebrating easter before it all happened

  • DeeDEEthree

    Another MORON who believes this is real.
    It’s Satire you FOOL.

  • Allison Craig

    Do you get paid every time you use the word “moron?”

  • jaymonster

    I’d explain it to you… but why waste my time. The only thing possibly more moronic than Sarah Palin would be somebody that looks up to that clown.

    I can’t help but wonder with your limited brain power how you remember to breath on a daily basis.

  • jaymonster

    Oh Give Up Dave… You can’t fix stupid… and DeeDEE… is the epitome of that

  • jaymonster

    If I may make a suggestion. Next time you have a thought… Just let it go.

  • DeeDEEthree

    It takes a MORON to believe that this is real.

    You all come here to say how Stupid Sarah Palin is for saying something she never said.

    So I would say MORON is what you all are.

  • DeeDEEthree

    At least I know Satire when I see it unlike some people.

    You all come here saying how stupid Sarah Palin is.

    When it is all of you who are STUPID for believing satire is real.

    You people are whats wrong with this Country.

  • jaymonster

    Now I will acknowledge that I am surprised by how many people thought this was real.

    But the really sad part is that this clown has said so many incredibly stupid things that it makes it believable to some that she would say something this stupid.

    And I must disagree, it is the obnoxious and intolerant like you that can’t wait to lash insults at everybody, and throw every crazy, pathetic line you heard from Sean Hannity (or somebody like him) out there. Your pompous, crude and even if you had an intelligent point it is lost behind your trailer park trash epithets.

  • BenjaminLatrobe

    It takes a very STUPID person like you to believe that that very MORONIC douchebag Sarah Palin is REAL : YOU MORON – “So I would say that you are the only very stupid MORON here…!”

  • IdiotMoron

    I suspect that Sarah Palin is commenting on this as “DeeDEEthree”. If so, hi there! And congratulations on the fake article, that let me know you are coming out with a book (that I won’t buy).

  • Guest this

    Wow. Bully much?

  • dave w

    What makes this comedy piece so funny is that it isn’t easy to distinguish from reality. Palin is actually that stupid. She is truely indefensible so the real question is why do you defend her? Do you think she’s smart? lol

  • CandideThirtythree

    That is what turned a lot of us atheist hahahah

  • KarenJ

    I think DD3 (sounds like something you kill weeds with) is really Piper Palin. At least the childish insults and name-calling are about par with what one hears from a 12 year old.

  • KarenJ

    Either her, or her daughter Piper, who’s 12 years old. The insults and name-calling reflect a personality about that old.

  • RAIDERFANXXX

    wow!!! where is the video of that one? if she ever read the bible she would know he observed the passover, and he was the passover lamb..
    but she is still good looking..

  • RAIDERFANXXX

    that is because you have more of an open mind. you are willing to unlearn the nonsense they teach in the worldly churches.
    I once questioned GOD too. then I read the bible with an open mind. now I have no doubts, GOD is real to me.

  • Clayton Whetmore

    Can anybody tell me when this interview actually occurred? I found nothing on Fox or Fox and Friends: http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/fox-and-friends/index.html

  • Jason Thompson

    DeeDEE needs a midol. Relax. It’s not clear to everyone who comes to this page that it is satire. Sarah Palin has said things withing that realm of perporsterousness. Secondly, errmon could be simply making a valid point that this joke STILL brings attention to. I have made that same observation before, and actually know much more about the bible than many devout Christians.

    So your point again was???

    Do yourself a favour, don’t be so obstreperous and at least don’t call people “stupid idiot”…. as it is langauge of an 8 year old and most here see you that way.

  • geeteekay

    I think the more militant faction of atheists like to *talk* about the Bible more than most Christians, but that doesn’t mean they are more familiar. I find that talk generally shows a pretty shallow understanding.

  • Perry Constantine

    it didn’t, the Daily Currant is a satirical news site. Don’t feel bad, though, I’ve known the Currant is a satirical site for a while and I still got tricked into believing this was true. Hits a little too close to reality.

  • Perry Constantine

    Anyone who defends Palin shouldn’t criticize others for low intelligence after her death panel bull.

  • Jason Thompson

    Dave, don’t lower yourself man.

  • george_porg

    I was being nice when I said maybe she misspoke. Palin says some pretty dumb things and a comment like that in the article would be fairly typical of the dumb things she says.

    I notice you are attacking everyone who commented on the article: Maybe you are a homosexual who is in love with Ms Palin and that is why you feel a need to attack the posters. Hmmmmmmmmmmm!

  • The Incense Witch

    No, it’s true. Most atheists and agnostics really are more familiar with the Bible than most Christians, but then so are Pagans :)

    actually palin is right in her wrong. passover and easter is the same thing where passover is long standing before Jesus.
    passover is the offering of the *Lamb* where Jesus was the ultimate Lamb. so did Jesus celebrate easter? yes, he celebrated passover as a jew

    Ummmm, Jason, gotta say I agree with the gist of what you’re saying, but you are undercutting your own point by misspelling PREPOSTEROUS(ness). Using big words to prove a point (and to prove your superior intellect) doesn’t work if you misspell the big words.

  • bkwcomments

    But there WAS an Easter parade. When Cheesus was carrying the cross up the hill. Remember? And he kept falling? The third time he fell the soldier who helped him up said “I don’t care who you are. You fall one more time and you’re outta the parade!”

  • Dennis Leoni

    Wow… stupid has a new name.

  • Darla R. Hitchcock

    DeeDEE, might I suggest a thesaurus? There are so many other words that mean the same as moron…how about “lackwit”? Or “imbecile”? Or even “mentally challenged”? And for Jeebus sake, I’m with cerealspiller: step away from the CAPS!!!!!

  • Darla R. Hitchcock

    DeeDEE, I believe the word you were looking for was “you’re”, a contraction of “you are” and not “your’, which is possessive.

  • Darla R. Hitchcock

    And, little one, “moronicness” is not a word. Even if you do type it with the Caps Lock on.

  • Shaun

    Sorry, what was that? I was just distracted by Sarah Palin trying to tell us that Jesus celebrated his death and resurrection by converting homosexuals, ending abortion and making sure the lefties don’t “take our guns”!!! WAHAHA!!!

    what a complete moron

  • Robinrene PiTa-Bambina Montgom

    the last supper was Passover

  • Robinrene PiTa-Bambina Montgom

    Christians stole holidays and celebrations from other religions and cultures in order to convert them into Christians. Jesus celebrated Passover with his disciples… because he was Jewish. Jesus wouldn’t teach anyone to protest the way protesters do now a days at abortion clinics. If he were here now to teach love and understanding, he would take Sarah to a Special Ed class, explain how homosexuality is natural and converting them is impossible and not a loving thing to attempt. Return to Sunday School, Sarah, then be a grown up and realize what you’ve been taught is complete bull. In otherwords, before you argue on the side of something that isn’t true, learn about that untruth first. That’s like me trying to convince people aliens are real by saying one is starring in a new show on NBC called the Crazy Ones. Nanu Nanu.

    And, people, stop picking on deeDDDthree. Don’t you realize it’s not nice to pick on kids? If a nine year old wants to comment on politics (albeit uneducated), that’s her prerogative. She’ll learn more as she gets older. Just remember, at that age, kids like to call people names because of being insecure of the truth.

    “A cultural history of the last forty years, The Age of American Unreason focuses on the convergence of social forces-usually treated as separate entities-that has created a perfect storm of anti-rationalism. These include the upsurge of religious fundamentalism, with more political power today than ever before; the failure of public education to create an informed citizenry; and the triumph of video over print culture. Sparing neither the right nor the left, Jacoby asserts that Americans today have embraced a universe of “junk thought” that makes almost no effort to separate fact from opinion.”

    Uh, actually he celebrated Passover, which the non Hebrew community turned into Easter…….Passover is celebrated on the first full moon after the Spring Equinox……please note, it falls on a different day every year as does the day of Christ resurrection …… it does not fall on ‘Good Friday’ and Easter Sunday….
    As far as Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann…..I don’t think either of these woman have a whole brain or any intelligence between them……

  • Baal

    So Sarah, Jesus was a Pagan??

    Lets get the facts about Easter or its original form, Ishtar.

    “Ishtar”, which is pronounced “Easter” was a day that commemorated the resurrection of a god called “Tammuz”, who was noted to be especially fond of rabbits, and they became sacred in the ancient religion.

    Tammuz’s mother was Queen Semiramis who claimed that she was immaculately conceived. She taught that the moon was a goddess that went through a 28 day cycle and ovulated when full. She further claimed that she came down from the moon in a giant moon egg that fell into the Euphrates River.

    This was to have happened at the time of the first full moon after the spring equinox.

    Semiramis became known as “Ishtar” which is pronounced “Easter”, and her moon egg became known as “Ishtar’s egg”, (starting to sound familiar?)

    Tammuz was killed by a wild pig, and Semiramis proclaimed a forty day period of time of sorrow each year prior to the anniversary of the death of Tammuz, during this time, no meat was to be eaten but they ate sacred cakes with the marking of a cross on the top (even more familiar?).

    So after that, on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox, a celebration was made “Ishtar’s Sunday” and was celebrated with rabbits and eggs and because Tammuz was killed by a pig, Semiramis proclaimed that a pig must be eaten on that Sunday.

    So forty days of Lent, eggs, rabbits,hot cross buns and the Easter ham, maybe thats what Sarah was on about :-)

  • Andrew P

  • nolalily

    To be an atheist or agnostic, given the immense pressure by everyone around you to identify with some religion, is to give religion an incredible amount of thought before one shares the fact that they are atheist or agnostic. This excludes all the thinking that goes into asking, “what is life all about, anyway” which I doubt, none but the few, have ever questioned very deeply to begin with yet it is another profoundly unanswered question that is often explored by atheists and agnostics.

  • smithflight

    A source would be good……anyone have one?

    When I was 16, my father asked me if I believed in God. I thought seriously about how to answer him, knowing that, at that time I was an agnostic. His grandmother had been a Mennonite who had willingly left the Mennonite religion. It was a long process. Finally I answered him as best I could explaining to him why I believed as I did. His response was that he thought “only a jackass believes in God because someelse has told him he should.” I asked him if he believed in God. He said he did. I asked him why and he explained, what he believed to be his own personal experience with God.
    1. I learned what unconditional love was.
    2. He freed me to develop my own beliefs – and later, my own relationship with “god” as I came to define it.

    What is funny is this is a Satire site, but Easter was actually based upon the Pagan Goddess Ester “the goddess of fertility” thus the eggs and rabbits and chocolate as an aphrodisiac: http://www.religioustolerance.org/easter1.htm

    Also Christmas was based upon the Pagan holiday of worshipping the Sun Gad versus the Son of God: http://www.lasttrumpetministries.org/tracts/tract3.html

  • Michael Arlan

    While it is true that Jesus did not celebrate Easter, the origins of the holiday date far back before his birth. The traditional modern day Easter is actually a merging of the Christian celebration of Jesus’s Resurrection and the pagan festival of blessing the god Ishtar (pronounced in old English much similar to our pronunciation of the word Easter), who was the goddess of fertility, war, and sexuality. Would you like to know where the Easter egg comes from? Its actually a celebration of the sexuality and fertility of Ishtar. This is why bunnies (who as we all know produce many offspring) and their eggs are celebrated by the pagans. This pseudo-holiday arose when Constantine tried to unite Rome under one unified religion. Many christian and pagan holidays were merged (for example the Christmas tree and the Pagan festival of Saturnalia) in order to stop the brutal violence in Rome between the Ancient Christians and the Pagans. So unfortunately, you are only half correct in your accusations. Not sticking up for Palin, because she is so wrong my brain melted reading this, just stating that you’re not entirely correct either.

  • DenVitaStene

    Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In many languages, the words for “Easter” and “Passover” are identical or very similar. In Italian, Easter is “Pasqua” while “Passover” is “Pasqua Ebraica” (literal: “Jewish Easter”). And Jesus actually celebrated Passover. I would label this as a mere mistranslation, if this was not a satyrical website.

    I think it’s more likely that OUTSPOKEN atheists are more knowledgeable about Christianity than OUTSPOKEN Christians. The fact is, most of the so-called Christians these days who get publicity in the corporate-run mainstream media are the ones deliberately trying to skew the public away from the traditional metaphysical concept of the Christian religion into a new right-wing political cult, still called “Christianity.” There’s even a “Conservative Bible,” because apparently, God got it wrong.

    She clearly meant Passover (The celebration of Passover took place just before the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ, and the two holidays have been entwined from the beginning—the word Pasch, originally meaning Passover, came to mean Easter as well.) But it is annoying when she isn’t smarter about choice of words when she speaks in public. Sigh.

    It varies a great deal. Many non-religious people have studied it in school as an academic subject or learned it as child before they turned away from faith or studied it to argue against those who used it negatively. But there are many faiths that study it regularly and work hard to understand both its history, textural relevance and inspirational use today.

    I haven’t dusted a bible off in ermm… a while, but think I can make an argument for Jesus having celebrated Easter. It is said that after the disciples discovered His open tomb, Jesus visited them in spirit and they did celebrate together. St. Thomas was missing from that encounter, but then later on Jesus came back to show the wounds on His palms, as well as to give them additional teachings.

  • Clyo

    If Jesus celebrated Easter, this proves Jesus was a pagan – someone who held religious beliefs that had nothing to do with Judaism or today’s modern religions – because Easter is an ancient spring festival that was celebrated by pagans. Long before the time of Christ, the pagan goddess Ishtar, sometimes known as Astarte or Ashtoreth, was worshiped in different countries by many people. Our modern practice of sunrise worship originates from the pagan festival honoring Ishtar.So Palin is, essentially, saying – without her realizing it, of course – that Jesus recognized Ishtar and was a pagan. Well, if paganism was good enough for Jesus, maybe it’s time to stop demonizing those who call themselves pagans, Sarah.

    Hey Incense Witch.
    I got a fact for you…..

    The modern “Pagan Religion” has no historical basis at all. It was almost entirely invented by Gerald Gardiner in the late 30s in Britain.

    He claimed to discover the “New Forest Coven” of witches, and learned their religion, which he claimed was from an unbroken oral tradition. He then said he added Freemason magical rituals (Freemasons are Christians and don’t have magical rituals), and started sharing the “teachings” with others.

    As an atheist, I’m both supportive and dismissive of attempts to reduce christianity to a cultural identity. On the one hand, as nothing more than a cultural identity one assumes it’s less intrusive into our social structure (politics and laws). But on the other hand, I think you’ll find it difficult to reduce the bible and some of the truly horrific things in it (like slavery, for instance) to a mere cultural identity.

    Dean says that the ACA is a good plan, and he supports it, but that one (1) component will probably fail, and that it should be changed. He goes on to discuss how that ONE aspect of the plan is a fundamental part of our current medicine approach. Dean is arguing for full socialist medicine, here.

    Of course they are. One can not criticize something without being totally familiar with it.

    Another fictitious war the far right religious republicans want to start. There is no war on Christmas, people are more educated than they were 2k years ago. These New testament stories were told 2 millennium ago and the Jewish bible over 3 when people needed to be told common sense things like killing, stealing and cheating on your wife was a bad thing. There is nothing to be learned in the bible except that I wouldn’t want my kids reading it. Some parts seem like a snuff movie and a lot of incest. And if there really was a Jesus it wouldn’t surprise me if celebrated Easter being a Jew and all. Easter
    is known as Pascua; in French, Paques. These words are derived from the
    Greek and Latin Pascha or Pasch, for Passover. Jesus’ crucifixion and
    resurrection occurred after he went to Jerusalem to celebrate Passover
    (or Pesach in Hebrew), the Jewish festival commemorating the ancient
    Israelites’ exodus from slavery in Egypt. Pascha eventually came to mean
    Easter.

    Are you actually reading these articles or just trolling?

    Those aren’t “Death panels”. What Sarah Palin fought was “end of life consultation”, which was a proposal that, with a terminal illness, patients would be consulted by their doctor on their options–which were: try experimental treatments that have never worked or stop treatment.

    In either case, by actual medical data, we know that the patients would have *roughly the same life expectancy*.

    That is why Sarah Palin is stupid for terming it a “death panel”. It is a standard part of ALL palliative care.

    Terminally ill means “the patient will die of this disease unless something else kills them soon”. It doesn’t mean, “With the right 100,000 treatment they’ll do cartwheels into a happy never-dying sunset!”

    Sarah Palin referred to a *standard* medical practice which has long been in use in America as a death panel, and indicated that a group of Federal employees would sit down in a room and decide to kill people. That is stupid, irresponsible, and absurd. No one has ever proposed anything even remotely similar to that.

  • Peter van der Kort

    Jesus must have celebrated Pesach, because he was a Jew. And the Jewish Pesach turned into the Christian Easter. So, in a way Jesus did celebrate Easter. But not in the way mrs. Dumbnut Palin meant it. But then again, Sarah Palin is just plain stupid, like all Tea Party members.

    Where would you say atheists moral values stem from? Democracy was only possible in Greece because of the slavery: most modern nations were built on slavery, and virtually every modern political system as well.

    I don’t understand where your ambivalence is stemming from here, and I’m not sure where you think Christians moral values stem from, but I am trying to figure that out–

    Most modern strains of Christianity derive their virtues from Aristotle and the “Virtue Ethics” model, mixed with the ethical systems of Augustine of Hippo. Summa Theologiae, by Thomas Aquinas, details the moral value systems of Christianity.

Jesus was crucified, dead and in the tomb and then rose from the dead and was not engaged in activism or celebration with his disciples. We all know what she is talking about and that is secularization, but as with most of her speeches, she betrays her ignorance of the facts.

    Instead of asking “where do you get your morals from” why not ask: why don’t we practice, for instance, slavery any longer?
    It does not take a deity to understand that if you try to harm someone, they will try to harm you back.
    You can make a value judgement when determining right and wrong that has nothing to do with gods. Most people, regardless of belief in deities, will not wish to engage in activities which harm others.
    It’s not a question of “where do ATHEISTS get their morals from”, but where do INDIVIDUALS get their morals from.

  • ProfPlum

    Everyone, including atheists, practice or believe in a “religion” or set of values that constitutes their view of the world and each deserves the respect and freedom to hold those beliefs.

    Three blondes died and are up talking to St.Peter. He says, “I have one question and if you get it I will let you into heaven.” He asks the first blonde, “What is Easter?”She answers, “Oh, that’s that one time of the year when our whole family gets together and we eat turkey.” St. Peter just shakes his head and says to the next blonde, “What is Easter?”She answers, “Oh, that is the time of year when our family gets together and we all open presents and the fat jolly guy comes down the chimney.”Again St.Peter just shakes his head. He asks the third blonde, “What is Easter?”She says, “Oh that’s when Christ died and they put him in a tomb and rolled a rock in front of it.”St. Peter smiles and urges, “Yes… go on…” The blonde continues, “Then once a year we roll the stone away and he comes out and if he sees his shadow we have six more weeks of winter.” Blonde
    Three Blondes Arrive At The Gates “Three blondes died and arrived at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter greeted them and told them they would be able to enter if they could answer one simple question, “What is Easter?”
    The first blonde replied, “Oh, that’s so easy. That’s the holiday in November when everyone gets together to give thanks and eat lots of turkey.”
    “Wrong!” replied St. Peter, as he approached the second blonde.
    “It’s the holiday in December,” she replied. “That’s when we put up a tree, exchange gifts and celebrate the birth of Jesus.”
    “Wrong again!” exclaimed a disgusted St. Peter, as he approached the third blonde, Sarah.
    “Oh, I know what Easter is,” she said confidently.
    “Really?” said a doubtful St. Peter.
    “Sure. Easter is the Christian holiday that coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Jesus was ready to complete his ministry on earth and ate his last supper, the Passover meal, with his disciples. After that evening, he was betrayed and turned over to a Jewish mob by one of the disciples. After a show trial, the Romans tortured him, made him wear a crown of thorns, took him to be crucified and then he was hung on a cross with nails driven through his hands and feet. Finally, he was stabbed in the side to make sure he was dead. He was buried in a nearby cave which was sealed off by a large boulder,” she explained.
    St. Peter was delighted with her knowledge.
    The third blonde, Sarah continued, “Each year the boulder is moved aside so that Jesus can come out. If he sees his shadow, that means we’re in for six more weeks of winter.”

    No. The point is that low information voters will persist in their errors no matter how much the truth is pointed out to them.

  • Judy Jackson

    It isn’t just you. Most of the Christians I know “cherry pick” the Bible to find the stories that agree with their particular cult. It has been my experience that atheists & agnostics actually read & study the Bible, ALL of the Bible, not just a few particular stories.
    In Sarah Palin’s world, Jesus was probably NOT Jewish. Her stupidity is frightening.

  • elizabeth

    That was not my intention. As I said, it takes as much faith to be an atheist as it does to be a believer. In both cases, we can only say what we believe. We can’t say for certain whether it is true or not. That is why it is called faith not certainty. I too am a Christian, but I often wonder what will happen if we go to heaven and discover that the Hindus got it right. What happens then?

  • Mary Anne Landers

    Sarah Palin would’ve done better had she said Jesus celebrated Passover. He was an observant Jew, so of course he did. The Last Supper was a Passover seder. But I don’t recall him using the occasion to knock abortion, homosexuality, or liberal politics. In fact, he never mentioned these issues at all.

    I fell for that one lock, stock and barrel, I admit. Of course, in light of all the stupid things she really DID say, it’s not surprising that so many people fell for it. It is right in character. She is still a money-grubbing moron who had no business being even considered for VP of the USA, much less selected.

    So while people falling for this joke got fooled, you on the radical right who think she was a legitimate choice for VP of the USA are still the bigger losers, because you still think she is something special. This does not even begin to mention your tendency to think you’re all like W, and never made a mistake in your lives. Of course, since your boy George made nothing BUT mistakes, I guess he never knew what it was like not to. Sounds pretty much like the Teabaggers in general, come to think of it.

    Well, Hindus got some things right. They know that sin is the source of our problems. C.S. Lewis, I think, said the very same thing. But what they get wrong is the solution for sin, or rather I should say they pursue the more difficult path to the solution. If they are they are there in the Kingdom, I’ll be high fiving and celebrating. I like Hindus, their food and music.

    Actually, Jesus celebrated his death before He died. He already foretold His death. Jesus spoke openly about what would happen to him: crucifixion and then resurrection from the dead. “The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed, and after three days rise again” (Mark 8:31; see also Matthew 17:22; Luke 9:22).
    He celebrated his life, death, and resurrection on Easter Thursday, at the Last Supper, he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19)
    Yes, Jesus celebrated the first Easter even before His resurrection happened because He knew what was coming.

    You proposed that binary system when you said that Christians based their moral value system on slavery–not I.

    You dismissively instructed me as to where my moral system comes from, without actually understanding it. In response, I *asked* where yours comes from, in an attempt to be respectful and actually learn from you.

    If the question is where do “individuals” get their moral values from, please, enlighten me. Morality is far too complex to boil down to “don’t hurt others” (simply look at our taxation and financial regulation systems for that one). Morality is a complex of inter-linking systems, and I don’t know of any moral codes that don’t have their foundation in the philosophies and systems of ancient cultures.

    You may be interested to learn that the Christian church was one of the first institutions to speak out against slavery and work toward ending it–or you may not.

    DaddyO:
    Over 300 people have asserted that atheists are smarter than theists here.

    As to studies establishing a CAUSATIVE link between religion and intelligence, I’m unaware of any.

    Forgive me. I’m a rational skeptic who understands statistics, correlation, and studies. My point is that “studies” largely demonstrate correlation, and as such, by careful selection of variables, you can literally demonstrate anything to have a correlation.

    It doesn’t imply or show causation, however, which is the logical fallacy that the first poster engaged in.

    It is absolutely maddening to see someone posit their “credentials” as a logical thinker, while simultaneously conflating correlative studies with causation. The individual who wrote the OP has absolutely no background nor even a theoretical understanding of science. How ludicrous is that?

    I love science and scientists–like Neil deGrass Tyson–who actually ARE logical and smart. I find infuriating and irritating “wanna be” folks who spout pseudo-science whilst proclaiming their own intellect.

    A: This is satire and not real.
    B: Modern pagans are not actually a religion. It is a pseudo-religion invented in 1939. No historian (atheist or otherwise) has been able to establish the validity of Gardiner’s claims that he met an actual coven practicing an unbroken oral tradition spanning 2000 years. In fact, historians and scholars have demonstrated that the body of modern “pagan” beliefs is a weird jumble of Arabic, Jewish, and Christian mythologies tinged with a little French literary conflation of King Arthur. Please don’t bring up the Pagans as an actual and serious religious group if you expect to be acknowledged as a deep thinker, especially after mis-reading a satire piece.

    I’m sorry David, you misunderstood my comment. I did not say that you base your moral system on slavery, I encourage you to re-read my initial comment. When you do, you’ll see I mentioned slavery as an example of but one instance in which the bible was incorrect on morality.
    The interesting thing about the bible and christianity is that one can find a passage in the bible to support almost any position or opinion on wishes to assume. As such, christians also used the book to support and condone slavery, as a careful study of slavery in the US and the Civil Rights movement will show you.
    It was not my intention to upset anyone with my comment and it’s clear to me that my comments have indeed found disfavor with you. Suffice to say that I already did give you a suggestion as to where individuals obtain moral guidelines, and it really is quite simple.
    Indeed, there are good people among the religious and the non-religious. Conversely, there are bad people among both groups. But when one suggests one’s value system is obtained from the contents of a book then a careful study of the contents of the book would seem appropriate.

    I agree with you that people have an innate right to believe in or practice any religion they want. I do NOT think that every set of beliefs — be they religious, political or whatever — is deserving of respect or freedom. For example, most sane people can recognize Scientology for the crock of bullshit that it is. I would defend anyone’s right to believe the tenets of that religion but that wouldn’t mean I respect them or their goofy religion. Same goes for Mormonism, Catholicism, etc., which, in my view, lie along the same continuum of crazy. Some beliefs simply cry out to be made the butt of jokes.

But can you use a dictionary? If so, please look up SATIRE and SARCASM (Oh, look, I can use caps lock too). Better yet, get a life and stop getting so worked up over something so silly.

    First of Jesus never celebrated Easter. It was the Passover. You need to truly understand where Easter came from and it was the Pagan Romans. Easter is the celebration of the God of Fertility. ” Promoted as a celebration of Christ’s resurrection, Easter is actually rooted in false religion. The name Easter itself has been linked to Eostre, or Ostara, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of the dawn and of spring. And how did eggs and rabbits come to be associated with Easter? Eggs “have been prominent as symbols of new life and resurrection,” says the Encyclopædia Britannica, while the hare and the rabbit have long served as symbols of fertility. Easter, therefore, is really a fertility rite thinly disguised as a celebration of Christ’s resurrection”

  • rich

    conservatives claim to be the moral and Christian authorities of the world, all while doing the exact opposite of what Christ preached. Christ preached against war and greed, he said to shed your wealth and give to the needy. Conservatives worship the almighty dollar, wage financially attractive wars, and crap on the poor to fund more tax breaks for the wealthy. Is that what Jesus preached??? I think not…

    Palin is right….. Easter as pagans celebrated it was about rebirth, the earth reviving, and appeasing (what i will call) the demi-gods of forest and field and what-not. As Christianity grew “Easter” became about Prayer and Activism, and shutting out Pagan beliefs. SO a plea to return to Easter the way it was celebrated in Jesus’ time would be more about Christianity trying to filter out other religions with more modernized tea-baggery.

    Cold describes the condition of low temperature
    Temperature is a physical property of a system that underlies the common notions of hot and cold; something that is hotter generally has the greater temperature. Temperature is one of the principal parameters of thermodynamics. On the microscopic scale, temperature is defined as simply the average energy of microscopic motions of a single particle in the system per degree of freedom. On the bulk scale, common to non-scientists, temperature is defined as that unique physical property that is shared between two otherwise entirely unlike things that happen to be in thermal equilibrium with each other (meaning, no net heat energy is exchanged between them). For a solid, these microscopic motions are principally the vibrations of the constituent atoms about their sites in the solid. For an ideal monatomic gas, the microscopic motions are the translational motions of the constituent gas particles. For multiatomic gas vibrational and rotational motion should be included too.

    Right On DaddyO! I think that The Bible promises that Jesus will one day return to Earth at which time He will judge the living AND the dead! Wow…that’s a big job, but nonetheless, I am certain that Jesus did not request that His followers help Him out by doing as much judging as possible prior to His second coming (third if you’re Mormon, right?) He simply left us with the message…’Love God The Father with All your heart; and Love Thy Neighbor as you love yourself. (Neighbor means enemy, those people that tend to piss you off, that’s hard to do. Easy to love our friends and family, no need to tell us that. We’re instructed by Him to place our negativity (hatred, anger, vengeance, greed, jealousy, ad infinitum) place this baggage at the FOOT OF THE CROSS. He said…”Drop all that hateful bullshit..” (of course I paraphrase) Sorry, I got carried away. DaddyO said it much more succinctly. Peace

  • GodsGadfly

    Is it just me, or do people not realize this is fiction and satire?
    Is it just me, or do people like to portray Sarah Palin as an “idiot” because their prejudicial ideology will not permit them to let a woman be a pro-life conservative?
    Most of the statements she’s made (in actuality, versus this completely made-up “story,” which borders on libel) that are used against her have actually been quite intelligent in their original contexts and merely show the stupidity of liberals who aren’t as well-versed in history, religion or contemporary politics as she is.

    I agree in principle, as long as people practice their faith in private and do not bring it into public affairs. But we are only talking about this woman because she came very close to the vice presidency of the country, and it is a highly dangerous notion to allow our public officials to curry political support among the populace by openly espousing their religious beliefs. This is not Iran. There is simply no place for that in this country.

    There has not been one aspect of Palin’s life and career that has not been chewed over, criticized and lied about by the media.

    Soon after Palin entered the national political scene as Arizona Sen. John McCain’s GOP running mate, she was attacked as a diva, a clothes hog, an irresponsible mother and a political mercenary. They dismissed what she achieved as mayor of her hometown, commissioner of the state’s oil and pipeline board and governor of America’s largest state.

    Sarah Palin’s enemies decided that nothing was too personal to attack-including her marriage, her children, her faith, and her wardrobe.

    The media distorted Palin’s positions and beliefs beyond recognition. And almost every word out of her mouth was spun as a “flub”.

    The media hounded her, and her family, on a daily basis, flat out making crap up (like that she, personally, shot wolves from the air). They claimed her baby was not her own; used despicable language to attack her, and her family; sent numerous reporters to Wasilla to dig up dirt on her ; AP reporters “factchecked” her book; accused her of being an accomplice to murder, her email hacked by the son of a Democrat congressman, political operatives filing endless bogus ethic charges designed to bankrupt a working family with a special need toddler and much more.

    “Sarah Palin IS incredibly stupid”
    —————–
    It seems that you are are poorly informed about Sarah Palin. Don’t believe everything the media and Hollywood is telling you about Sarah Palin.

    Sarah Palin is a self-made woman with an impressive career who broke into politics without the head start of a powerful husband or father.

    City council, mayor, Governor, oil and gas commission, VP candidate, already vetted, been scrutinized every way possible and still standing strong. Long list of accomplishments and over 20 years of experience.

    Sarah Palin has offered many statements on issues such as health care, the Federal Reserve’s money printing in funding our federal deficit, Crony Capitalism, energy independence, foreign policy, etc)

    She was the first Republican to make a high-profile critique of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing, though even earlier she had marked the collapsing value of the dollar as one of her issues and has repeatedly been a leading voice—via television appearances and speaking engagements—against the dangers of ObamaCare and the risks of President Obama’s approach to energy.

    She went to India , Hong Kong, World Knowledge Forum in South Korea ,etc where she talked about the economy, the deficit, government spending, gun control,the environment, the rising cost of food, energy, Egypt and other foreign policy related issues. She did unscripted Q&A’s

    She was the catalyst for the takeover of the House , twice as many Governships and lopsided Gop Statehouses with her endorsements and rallies all over the country during the 2010 election.

    Sarah Palin also had a very strong hand in the party’s few successes during the 2012 election.

    Don’t believe everything the media and Hollywood is telling you about Sarah Palin. She has been attacked and vilified by the media like no one else; she’s probably the “cleanest” politician out there.

    The media distorted Palin’s positions and beliefs beyond recognition. And almost every word out of her mouth was spun as a “flub”.

    Sarah Palin is a self-made women with an impressive career who broke into politics without the head start of a powerful husband or father.

    She took on the corruption in her party and state and she stood side by side with candidates across the country in 2010 and 2012, often against the wishes of the entrenched GOP establishment.

    Sarah Palin has fought to reduce spending and to enforce fiscal discipline as governor of Alaska. She has drastically reduced the growth of the state budget, which has helped to produce a record budget surplus.Standard & Poor’s raised Alaska’s credit rating from AA to AA+ in April 2008. Then in 2010, both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s upgraded Alaska to AAA for the first time in the state’s history due to policies enacted by Palin that made the state’s finances more than solvent.

    Sarah Palin succeeded to a remarkable extent in settling what had seemed insoluble problems, in the process putting Alaska on a trajectory to financial well-being.

    As governor, Palin fought for and signed sweeping bipartisan ethics legislation, which restricted lobbyists, improved disclosure laws, and improved executive and legislative branch ethics laws. In the face of corruption, she continued to take on her own party when it was necessary.

    Its Mr Gibson in the interview who initiates the issue of Alaska’s proximity to Russia which might give Sarah Palin an understanding to Russia’s actions.

    As a gesture, she took the initiative and gave the American people some trivia that most Americans didn’t know, that you can actually see Russia from an island in Alaska.

    She elaborated on what Mr Gibson in the interview himself suggested, that the fact that Russia as Alaska’s neighbor gives her a unique understanding of that country’s activities.

    A transcript of the unedited interview of Sarah Palin by Charles Gibson clearly shows that ABC News edited out crucial portions of the interview that showed Palin as knowledgeable or presented her answers out of context.

    As Governor Sarah Palin didn’t just cut spending; she saved, reformed, and prioritized like a good fiscal manager. She invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, paid down debt, invested $2.6 billion in an education fund for the future, and funded a Senior Benefits Program to provide support for low-income Alaskan seniors.

    In stark contrast to President Obama and other governors whose fiscal records are dogged by credit downgrades, Palin left Alaska with an improved credit rating during and following her tenure as governor. Standard & Poor’s raised Alaska’s credit rating from AA to AA+ in April 2008.

    Then in 2010, both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s upgraded Alaska to AAA for the first time in the state’s history due to policies enacted by Palin that made the state’s finances more than solvent.

    Sarah Palin’s “business experience” comes with the negotiations and dealings she has had with one of the most powerful industries in the world: the energy industry. Sarah Palin has successfully negotiated new tax structures, lease deals and other issues that arise in the Alaska energy industry.
    At the end of the day, Sarah Palin negotiated billion dollar deals with one of the toughest industries in the world.

    Taking on corruption and crony capitalism has always been a cornerstone of Sarah Palin’s agenda; in Alaska she did take on the old-boy network — the oil companies and her own party .
    As oil and gas commissioner, Sarah Palin called out the unethical practices of members of her own party.
    As Governor, she sought to end the back room deals and improper relationships between oil companies and politicians.

    I don’t think Sarah Palin is any more stupid than most politicians. Like many politicians her mouth got a head of her brain. I have seen it many times from Obama on down. Smart people sometime say stupid things.
    The country was founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs. Hence we have God given rights. With out God there are no God given rights. That would then make everything negotiable. You could have Fred given rights, until he is replaced by Bill. Then you would have Bill given rights until he was replaced by Obama. Then you would have Obama given rights. Good luck with that.
    Jews do not force others to convert. Christians try to recruit, but not force conversion. If some one decides to quit either of these religions, there will be some tsk,tsking, but that is about it. Both religions can live right next door to each other and do business. Both religions have a history, but it is past.

    The thing that these “Liberals are ruining my holidays” pundits keep missing is that it is not Liberals that are doing anything to their holidays, it’s businesses looking to increase profit.

  • http://www.davidstreever.com/ David Streever

    Hi Marisa,

    I do understand what you are saying: you are claiming that Christians derive their morality directly from the Bible, which is why the passages acknowledging slavery are so problematic for you.

    I’m trying to explain to you that in proper Christianity this isn’t the case at all–you misunderstand how moral value systems are derived.

    Individual morality systems are complex things: they don’t simply spring out of the ether. How do you assign relative values to actions you undertake? The reality is you probably engage your morality system a dozen times a day, in small things–do you shake your fist at the other driver? Do you tip 20%? Do you treat the sales clerk with politeness, even though they are scowling?

    Moral systems aren’t simply a binary choice between injuring and not injuring someone else: morality is more complex and complicated than good v. evil.

    My point in all this is that you use a moral system derived over thousands of years, as do most modern Christians. Most modern Christians use a moral system largely derived from Aristotle, an atheist greek philosopher, which was later expanded upon by Thomas Aquinas, a Christian writer.

    You haven’t upset me: you’re just doing what the fundamentalist American christians do, in divorcing yourself from history and context. There is no such thing as a literal moral system such as you are describing, and in claiming one, you are engaging in the fallacy that the fundamentalists engage in.

    They claim to derive their morality literally from their bible readings (they don’t, because as you’ve pointed out, they pick and choose). So to must you. How do you pick and choose throughout the day? How do you determine which non-obvious choices are “good”? The answer is you do it from a wealth of cultural information and a rich heritage of philosophy and religious thought which has evolved in lock-step with society and culture.

    The Bible–a 2000 year old document–is largely a historical text explaining what happened to a group of people at a certain time in history. Most modern Christians don’t view it as a book of moral lessons, although many fundamentalist right-wing Christians do: those people aren’t bad because of their religion, however, they are just bad. Religion is simply another excuse they invent for their bad behavior.

    By accepting and affirming their minority POV, you have to accept a serious logical fallacy in order for your point to hold.

D’oh!) that our earth is mere thousands of years old when all proof points to it’s existence for some Approx. 4.5 billions years!

    Hey , how did this devolve into a ridiculous series of exchanges about “religion” . This began as a discussion of ignorance espoused by a stupid person ….Oh never mind !

  • Chazz

    Actually Jesus DID celebrate Easter with his Disciples. In the KJV the New Testament translates it as Easter but it was really Passover, not the Pagan Easter or the Easter we celebrate today. I am sure that is what Sarah Palin meant, Passover.It was on the same days as the Pagan Easter, and so the KJV translators used that word Easter in Acts 12:4 But as usual, one mention of Jesus and the media twists what a Christian says making it sound like they don’t know the Bible. They get off the main subject and try to debunk what Christians say and turn it into a religious issue, because they know Sarah Palin is sticking the goad into their ribs, so just like the Scribes and Pharisees did with Jesus, they are looking for something she says, anything, to catch her in her words.

  • Marisa Totten

    I’m sorry David, but you still
    misunderstand my intended meaning. Perhaps I could have stated it better, and I
    accept that as a possibility.

    It was never my intent to limit
    morality to either/or. It is not my
    intent to say that christians receive their morality from the bible, I’m not a
    christian and won’t speak for them. Even
    if I were christian I would still not attempt to speak for all christians. I am atheist, and even so I’ll not attempt to
    speak for all atheists. What I am trying
    to be is breif, given the forum for this discussion, and perhaps that is part
    of the problem in communication. This
    would be a much easier conversation to have in person.

    It nevertheless remains true that
    we are both right. Morality is more
    complex than I’ve presented it, but it can be succinctly stated as “treat
    others the way you wish to be treated”.
    I’ll hang with Einstein on this one, “if you can’t explain it simply,
    you don’t understand it well enough”.

    If you go back to my initial
    comment, you’ll find I said that I was both supportive and dismissive of
    attempts to reduce christianity to a cultural identity. But you are trying to force me into a
    different position. A position
    condemnitory of christians, almost entirely, and that simply is not who I
    am. I know that many christians dismiss
    the truly horrid things presented in the OT, but it remains that those things
    exist within the christian bible. So
    that is christian’s problem with deal with, not mine. If a christian wishes to say “I get my morals
    from the bible” then examining that textt is perfectly reasonable.

    It’s not my intention to be a “literalist”. Again, I would refer you back to my original
    comment in which I took no absolute position.
    All christians have to contend with the fact that their belief, like so
    many others, maintains some really nasty concepts. Am I glad the vast majority of believers have
    moved past that? You bet, but the cold,
    hard fact of the matter is that those concepts remain, and seem foundational to
    the belief.

    I’m not attempting to paint all
    christians as fundamentalists. The
    reality of the situation is that we probably agree much more than it appears to
    you, as many of your comments I have no issue with. I hope that I have explained myself a little better,
    and that you now realize how off the mark your final comment about me assuming all
    christians to be fundamentalists truly is.

    It seems that you are are poorly informed about Sarah Palin.

    She has demonstrated a willingness to fight for what she believes in, even if it is within her own party.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/10/us/10iht-currents10.html?_r=0

    She took on the corruption in her party and state and she stood side by side with candidates across the country in 2010 and 2012, often against the wishes of the entrenched GOP establishment.
    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122057381593001741.html?mod=djemEditorialPage

    As governor, Palin fought for and signed sweeping bipartisan ethics legislation, which restricted lobbyists, improved disclosure laws, and improved executive and legislative branch ethics laws. In the face of corruption, she continued to take on her own party when it was necessary.

    Palin actually took on Big Oil, releasing the stranglehold that those companies had on the oil resources and industry in her state.

    http://www.amazon.com/Sarah-takes-Big-Oil-compelling/dp/0982163207

    As Governor Sarah Palin didn’t just cut spending; she saved, reformed, and prioritized like a good fiscal manager. She invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, paid down debt, invested $2.6 billion in an education fund for the future, and funded a Senior Benefits Program to provide support for low-income Alaskan seniors.

    In stark contrast to President Obama and other governors whose fiscal records are dogged by credit downgrades, Palin left Alaska with an improved credit rating during and following her tenure as governor. Standard & Poor’s raised Alaska’s credit rating from AA to AA+ in April 2008.

    Then in 2010, both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s upgraded Alaska to AAA for the first time in the state’s history due to policies enacted by Palin that made the state’s finances more than solvent.

    You mean you could laundry list a bunch of media lies about Sarah Palin.

    Soon after Palin entered the national political scene as Arizona Sen. John McCain’s GOP running mate, she was attacked as a diva, a clothes hog, an irresponsible mother and a political mercenary. They dismissed what she achieved as mayor of her hometown, commissioner of the state’s oil and pipeline board and governor of America’s largest state.

    The media decided that nothing was too personal to attack-including her marriage, her children, her faith, and her wardrobe.

    The media distorted Palin’s positions and beliefs beyond recognition. And almost every word out of her mouth was spun as a “flub”.

    The media hounded her, and her family, on a daily basis, flat out making crap up (like that she, personally, shot wolves from the air). They claimed her baby was not her own; used despicable language to attack her, and her family; sent numerous reporters to Wasilla to dig up dirt on her ; AP reporters “factchecked” her book; accused her of being an accomplice to murder, her email hacked by the son of a Democrat congressman, political operatives filing endless bogus ethic charges designed to bankrupt a working family with a special need toddler and much more.

  • JohnT

    The “korea” story is one of the many “made up” stories about Sarah Palin by the media in order to vilify her.

    It was obvious from her preceding remarks that this really was just a slip of the tongue. The slip op the tongue part of a much longer segment in which she clearly and repeatedly referred to South Korea as an ally of the U.S

    The media could even have done due diligence and checked Sarah Palin’s previous statements on the Korea subject, which have always been consistent, and in fact even ahead of the curve.

    Let’s just go back to Sarah Palin’s public comments about North Korean Missile Testing on April 6th 2009

    April 6, 2009, Juneau, Alaska – Responding to the missile test by North Korea, Governor Sarah Palin today reaffirmed Alaska’s commitment to protecting America from rogue nation missile attacks.

    “I am deeply concerned with North Korea’s development and testing program which has clear potential of impacting Alaska, a sovereign state of the United States, with a potentially nuclear armed warhead,” Governor Palin said. “I can’t emphasize enough how important it is that we continue to develop and perfect the global missile defense network. Alaska’s strategic location and the system in place here have proven invaluable in defending the nation.”——Sarah Palin.

    Ah..no, he didn’t celebrate EASTER, but he DID celebrate the PASSOVER, which was the forerunner of Easter. The blood on the doorposts that directed the angel of death to “passover” that household was symbolic of the then-future action of the blood of Christ in his death on the cross – that offers salvation to all who will believe on Him.

    In all fairness, despite Palin’s obvious moronity, Christ, as a Jewish Rabbi, and his discipels as humble Jewish trade-and craftsmen DID celebrate Pesach, which relates to Easter as Chanuka does to Christmas. So she probably read or heard something about that, probably in connection to The Last Supper, and made her own idiot, bigot, deformed Teabag version of it. So allthough she is ofcourse waaaay off, and abuses a historical given to push her own deluded agenda of hatred and ignorance disguised as piety and spirituality, there is a core of scrambled reality in what she is saying, which makes it all even more disturbing. Especially since millions of people voted for her to be VP, which, had McCain won, would’ve made her a heartbeat away from The Button, and she is still a beloved and influential personality. But then again: it’s no secret that conservatives are rarely known for their knowledge of facts, figures or anything substantia informationl, even on their own hobbyhorse subjects like religeon, ethics, the economy or world order.

    Everyone has a right to practice their beliefs. However, does it work for someone who professes to be a Christian and make statements about how Christians should be in the country today, to be so unaware of the thing that is at the heart of what defines Christianity? What defines Christianity is that “…God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten son….”, Jesus, to be crucified for the sins of humanity. That crucifixion and his subsequent rise from the dead is what Easter celebrates. Given what she’s claiming to stand for, not knowing that is just appalling. It reveals that whatever else there may be, she has a different agenda than what she’s saying publicly.

    The saddest of all of this is that Easter (Ishtar) was a fertility festival practiced by the pagans and joined to the resurrection by the catholic church for who knows what their rational was. Christmas and the trees was a winter festival for the pagans and bringing in the evergreen was some pagan ritual for who knows what. Neither had anything to do with the birth or death of Christ. It was an attempt by the Vatican to bring the pagans and Christians in line to live together peacefully. Sara has messed it up worse than the Vatican ever could.

    Faith is just a way to continued believing in a “lie”…Think about how we teach our children to believe in Santa Clause…One day the children find out it is not true…But because they get gifts they are happy to play along…But the Church is just looking for a way to get money out of everyone to keep funding the “lie”…That is sad…I know the true benefit of Church is community, but would it not be better to have it under the truth of todays social beliefs…

    Hi Marisa,

    You are definitely misunderstanding me :)

    I am telling you that your position (re: slavery in the OT) is irrelevant because it stems from a fundamental misunderstanding of what the Bible actually is, versus how the Bible is framed by a modern so-called “fundamentalist” perspective by American Christians.

    This is also NOT an apologist point of view: again, your use of that term tells me you are re-framing my position as something you are familiar with (Christian Apologetics), still in the context of modern fundamentalist American Christianity. What you are describing is an historical aberration and a minute portion of the actual practice of Christianity.

    What I am saying is that the Bible is a work of literature, and a historical document. In the same way that the framing fathers acknowledged slavery in their writings, so to does the Bible.

    The Bible does not instruct individuals to keep slaves. Only a literalist reading of the Bible takes away from it the simplistic morality lessons you are reducing it to.

    The Bible is a historical document and an archive of the cultural history of a people. It was written by people, describing their experiences and thoughts and beliefs, and the understanding of those interpretations has evolved over time.

    That isn’t “apologizing”. That is acknowledging the reality of history and cultural shifts that have occurred.

    Your ambivalence stems from a fundamental misunderstanding of what the Bible actually is. I don’t mean this to be offensive or insulting–many people share your misunderstanding!–but it is still an inaccuracy.

    Sadly, literary reading isn’t a prized skillset in our society, which is why those of us who read the Bible in a historical context are left shaking our heads at the right-wing “non-interpreted” interpretation and the left-wing acceptance of that fallacy, resulting in their ambivalence.

    (I, too, would rather have this conversation in person, where my tone and body language would communicate that I’m not upset or fighting, but just trying to explain something that is difficult to understand.)

  • Marisa Totten

    I’m at a loss as to where exactly I “accused” (for lack of a better word) you of anything, let alone being an apologist. I’m not ambivelent about anything, I’ve stated my position as clearly as I know how. And it seems to me that the bible “is” whatever the individual(s) reading it make of it. I’ve read the text several times, but my perspective on it probably isn’t terribly insightful to a believer since, to me, as a lifelong raised from birth atheist, it’s never been more than a fanciful work of fiction that somehow found itself the foundation of one of the largest religious beliefs on the planet. The text is not “difficult” for me understand.
    I appreciate that you do not view the book in the same way many other christians, whether fundamentalist or not, may view it. Yours remains but one perspective, and in attempting to “teach” me how to properly interpret the bible you stand precariously upon the precipice of a “no true Scotsman” fallacy. It’s almost as if you are saying all those others aren’t true christians if they view the book’s import differently from you.
    I tend to let people be what they say they are. I try very hard not to use labels or generalizations, and I’ve tried not to label or generalize you. I fear, however, we’re unlikely to reach a mutual understanding, but I can say with sincere honesty that I’ve enjoyed the privilege of conversing with you.

    Jesus was crucified during passover. It was God’s plan. Jesus was the full realization of Passover, the salvation of all mankind. Easter is a retooled pagan celebration of Ishtar. A spring fertility celebration with rabbits and eggs, symbols of fertility. True Christians observe Passover with the emphasis on Jesus not a pagan fertility rite usurped by early Christians to reform an earlier pagan rite.

    From Snopes:
    As to the question of whether one can actually see Russia from Alaska, Governor Palin was correct: such a view is possible from more than one place in Alaska.

    A Slate article on the topic noted that:
    In the middle of the Bering Strait are two small, sparsely populated islands: Big Diomede, which sits in Russian territory, and Little Diomede, which is part of the United States. At their closest, these two islands are a little less than two and a half miles apart, which means that, on a clear day, you can definitely see one from the other.

    Also, a 1988 New York Times article reported that:
    To the Russian mainland from St. Lawrence Island, a bleak ice-bound expanse the size of Long Island out in the middle of the Bering Sea, the distance is 37 miles. From high ground there or from the Air Force facility at Tin City atop Cape Prince of Wales, the westernmost edge of mainland North America, on a clear day you can see Siberia with the naked eye.

    Hi Marisa–

    You assume I’m a Christian, although I haven’t stated more about myself than that I am someone who reads the Bible as a historical document and a work of literature. I think that your assumptions about Christians, and what it means to be Christian, are impairing your ability to actually hear me.

    For instance:
    You state that you are not ambivalent: ambivalence is defined as “having strong, contradictory feelings about a subject”.

    However, you also said:

    “As an atheist, I’m both supportive and dismissive of attempts to reduce christianity to a cultural identity.”

    I’m not trying to define you: I’m merely using the language you’ve used. To state that you have strong, contradictory feelings is to state that you are ambivalent, so I can only assume we are using different definitions of the word.

    As to the “ease” with which you understand the Bible: yes, this is my point. If you think you understand a diverse set of texts written in several languages and dialects, compiled by different cultural groups, over a time period of hundreds of years, which has baffled literary geniuses, and engendered nearly 2000 years of debate and discourse, I’m going to have to question your understanding.

    Some of the greatest literary minds of Western civilization have had deep and enduring disagreements on the Bible: what it means, what the points are, and what strings tie it all together.

    Who precisely have you read on the Bible? What writers? What literary analysis? Reading the Bible is not straight-forward, and you make it clear that you haven’t understood it when you state that Christians glean moral values from the Old Testament. It isn’t a matter of being an Apologetic to say that is an inaccurate statement. The Old Testament is not considered to be a morality lesson by most Christians–it is the “Old Law” which was a system embraced and defined by Jewish Elders.

    That schism over the OT laws is *precisely what split the Christians from the Jewish people*. Therefore, to state that the OT contains a set of moral values for Christians displays a deep and fundamental misunderstanding about who and what Christians are.

    I know many people believe that they are “Jewish people who decided they liked Jesus”, but the reality is a bit more complex than that.

    I’ve enjoyed the conversation, although I’ll admit to being frustrated by the judgemental nature you’ve ascribed me. I’m honestly not trying to insult or offend you, or tell you who you are or what you think: I am merely telling you the actual state of Bible research and literary comprehension. That it does not mirror your own (or mine for that matter) is not an insult. I don’t think that you possess fundamentally *less* knowledge than I do. I just think you lack an understanding of how little knowledge we *all* have.

    This is perhaps my largest frustration with many people: a basic and deep lack of respect for literature and the humanities. To state that you have no problems understanding the Bible is a bizarre statement about your own lack of information.

    Would you claim a similar level of ease and understanding when regarding (for instance) Magic Mountain? One of my favorite books, despite having read it three times, I would not claim that it is “easy”, nor would I claim I fully understand it.

    My aim is always to explore the limits of my understanding, not to champion them, which is what you are doing when you profess “ease” with an enormous tome of collected, disparate, and diverse writings from a varieties of cultures, languages, and time periods.

    Is it just me, or any other Christian here, who knows that Jesus rly DID celebrate easter. Yes, he did. He celebrated it the traditional way, for the freedom of jewish people from the slavery of Egypt. That’s the reason to celebrate Easter in the beginning.

    FOR CHRISTIANS, Easter has more deeper meaning, where we not only are freed from slavery on Earth, but also from the slavery of the devil and sin. So yea, Jesus symbolically celebrated his own death and resurrection by giving us communion and by giving a prophecy about his own death AND resurrection.

    So Sarah Palin didn’t know that? Huge mistake as a Christian that gets attention. And reporter only knew the tradition of Easter for Christians, without understanding the jewish context? Huge mistake also.

    That’s an extremely close minded and arrogant thing to say, while you may disagree with a persons beliefs, to disrespect a person for not thinking like you is such an ignorant thing to do. Now i’m not a heavily devout christian, and I don’t take much of the bible as literal fact, but the teachings of Christianity and most other religions do have their merits. Contrary to what a lot of people think that their holy books say, most preach tolerance, forgiveness, and kindness. And if everybody lived the way that Jesus did I have no doubt that the world would be a nicer place. And before someone cites a line from the old testament in response to me, i’m not talking about the old testament, i’m talking about the teachings of Jesus. Teachings that say we should not condemn each other for being different or for being sinners. What the bible has taught me is that It doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, gay, atheist, or have even killed somebody, we should treat others with compassion. And that includes not condemning others for what they believe.

    The Gospel of Luke also describes an encounter with Jesus on the road to Emmaus. With tantalizing but confused rumors of the empty tomb still spreading, Jesus appears in disguise to a pair of his followers. After visiting with and teaching them for some time, Jesus reveals himself in a beautifully-described scene:

    When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

    If God was real, We would know. There wouldn’t be atheists and religions in contrast with each other. God would not write books if he wanted mankind to know of him. He would know better.

    Perhaps
    Kilmeade should have read his own Bible – Acts 12:4: “And when he had
    apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four
    quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him
    forth to the people”.

    He may
    have discovered it was actually Palin who was correct; and that Jesus
    did celebrate “Easter”… unfortunately it was his followers who
    hi-jacked the celebration…

    I didn’t know that there were abortion clinics during the Roman Empire.. We should call out Sarah’s bible study teacher.
    She must share some eclectic information with God when He talks to her. We should be grateful that she shares this info with us common people.
    You have to admit this is welcome comic relief to the Tea Party’s wardrums.
    I wonder if the voters who voted this dimwit into office realize that she is wrong about Easter,

    Sara
    Palin in trying to impress a block of christian voters stated that she
    is a ‘creationist’… she revealed she believes that Man and Dinosaur
    had lived together on Earth at same time.
    A reporter responded “Like the Flintstones?”
    Palin
    could not confirm nor deny the concept of the popular cartoon series
    was taken from history. (Much less, the Honeymooners.)

    Jesus Christ celebrated Passover the Thursday before He was crucified and Passover is a direct symbolism of Easter for Christians. This is a common teaching in the church and it might be what she was thinking of.

    FYI: In the old testament, Jews were liberated from Egyptians and to remember God’s deliverance, they celebrated Passover. A lamb was slaughtered and its blood was placed on Jews’ doors so that death that had come as a curse to the land might pass them and indeed they were delivered. In the new Testament, St. Paul and St. Peter refer to Christ as our lamb that was slaughtered once and for all. Through his death and resurrection He liberated us from the bondage of slavery that just a belief in His works and who He is, is all we need to become renewed. In this essence, what Passover was in the Old Testament, Easter is in the New.

  • Lloyd

    Too funny. Does Sara know Jesus was Jewish and a rabbi (not Christian)? Is Sara saying we should all be Jewish? Does she hate the free market that has worked so hard over the years to create holidays that people buy a lot of stuff? The GOP and Tea party typically like the free market. I don’t think it is the left wing that is wacko! I hope the tea party and GOP has the good sense NOT to run Palin for President.

    “Easter” was celebrated by the Pagans as a celebration of rebirth
    (Spring) The egg was the symbol. Christians didn’t really
    celebrate until recent history other than with prayer and Church service. Most holidays coincide with Pagan
    holidays and have been changed with a Christian story.

    I wonder if Sara Palin is aware that there are..at least…over 205 contradictions
    in the Bible. I also wonder how many of the “Jesus Freaks” have really taken the time to actually study the Bible not just read it. If you just read the Bible
    like a Novel you will never understand it. The Bible is a collection of Tales
    passed on without any proof or solid test in truthfulness. People DO NOT
    rise from the dead and you cannot make babies without sperm such as an
    “Immaculate Conception.” A true Scholar will study the Bible not just read it.

    In Palin’s defense, Easter was originally a pagan holiday to celebrate the Spring Equinox, but I highly doubt she knew that

  • Beth Burricelli Cooke

    Unbelievable.

  • HANGINOFF

    He asked her a nonsenical question, and she was stumped.. and she should have been stumped.

    The question was… How can Jesus celebrate his death before He died?

    I don’t think he would throw a party, nobody would come.

    If the questioner mispoke and really wanted to ask, “before the fact, why would Jesus celebrate being beaten, tortured and affixed to a cross with nails through his hands and feet?” The answer to that is obvious. He wouldn’t.

    As to Sarah’s point, which is that Jesus rose on Easter morning in order to set all men and women free… it was never addressed by the questioner, not by this column.

  • HANGINOFF

    Most of them think they are…

  • HANGINOFF

    Cite the studies.

  • William Arrott

    Wasn’t Easter a pagan celebration long before Jesus was even born?

  • HANGINOFF

    He paid your bar bill… what’s the problem?

  • HANGINOFF

    Or she could have referred to her teleprompter and called a Navy corpseman a ‘corpse man’ or wondered what language they speak in Austria… or referenced the ’57 states’ in the union….

  • HANGINOFF

    …she said from the basement of her parent’s home.

  • HANGINOFF

    And since you were there to observe the formation of the Universe, and the creation of the Earth and all that’s in it… you rely on faith and not first hand observation when you assert how it all began….

    Or did I miss something?

    Since you are in the same boat as the rest of the unwashed… cite your fossil evidence. Give me a single transitional species… not the hundreds of billions that should be extant, but one.

    Good luck with that.

  • HANGINOFF

    He rose from the dead on Easter, so the only talking point would be, with whom did He celebrate?

  • HANGINOFF

    Like the Origin of Species?

  • Richard Ware

    Hunter: What Jesus taught is in the old and new testament, he talked to Cain, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Samuel, Elijah and many others in the old testament and He became a human in the old testament and magnified the law and made it honorable there was no new testament until it was written! Jesus lived His life as an example for his followers and he followed what the old testament prophets said he would do. Jesus said “think not that I have come to destroy the law or the prophets, I have not come to destroy, but to fulfill, til heaven and earth pass away one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law until all be fulfilled.” and all is not fulfilled and won’t be until Jesus returns and takes the righteous living and dead back to heaven and after a 1000 years he will come bask to the earth and destroy Satan and all his followers by fire and make a new heavens and a new earth where righteousness will reigns forever!

    Jesus is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin. He lived a sinless and blameless life. He was despised and rejected and crucified. After being in a grave for 3 days, he rose from the dead. Over 400 people witnessed his resurrection. He ascended into heaven weeks later and now sits at the right hand of God making intercession for those that have believed and followed him. If you have a Bible and want to learn why all of this took place, a good place to start would be the book of John. May the Lord add his blessing to reading of His word.

    Actually for those of us who have actually studied it and read it in context, we know for a fact that there are ZERO contradictions.

    Hunter, it’s really not close-minded, but perhaps Liliane should have called it ‘blind faith’ which is to believe in something without any evidence. Bibles are not evidence. Sorry but they just aren’t. Nor are churches, your parents’ beliefs, your religious upbringing or anything else. By being a Christian you are practising blind faith, and that is simply not logical.

    Have you observed your own brain? Then please enlighten us as to why you would be so foolish as to have FAITH that it’s there…..?

    Coincidentally, the faith of Christians is no more “blind” than your faith in, or knowledge of, your own physical existence….we have overwhelming evidence of every sort (science, history, archaeology, philosophy, physics, etc.) which offers us clear and undeniable evidence of a God who created us, loves us, rules over us, provides for us, protects us, knows us (far better than we know ourselves!), sent his Son to die on the cross for the sake of all who will ultimately trust in him, and – of course – who will someday judge us for all eternity.

    He’s truly a great and awesome God – endless in his love for us, as well as limitless in his power and authority. I hope you have a chance to get acquainted with him very soon! Romans 1 warns that the evidence of his existence is so strong that folks who insist on pretending as if he doesn’t exist will be “without excuse” when they stand before him at the end of their brief lives. I sincerely hope you won’t find yourself in that tragic situation.

    Michaelcain: The Muslims will never take over, but the Roman Catholics will and like in days of old they will persecute you and put you to death. Go to the library and read about the inquisition. The reason there is a catholic church today is because they lost their power as a Government and in order to keep control of the people they became Wolves in sheep clothing by becoming a supposed religious organization, but when they gain it again persecution will reign supreme once more, and the sad part is Protestants will be so deluded that they will follow in the footsteps of Rome as they already are! The Catholics say that they changed the day of worship from the seventh day to the first day and there is nothing in the scriptures making the change, but the Roman Catholic Church has the power to change God’s Law! and after all they do say they have the power to forgive sin, but Jesus was persecuted for forgiving peoples sins and they say they have the power and STUPID, IGNORANT people go to them to get their sin forgiven! while they the priest are molesting children!

    Christians should certainly study God’s Word, too – of course – but if they fully know and trust in the gospel of Jesus Christ, then they have enough to be confident in their hearts that God has saved them from their sins, and that they have a blessed eternity to which they can look forward.

    Regardless, the article above is joke – meant only to insult Sarah and to mock her (Christian) views. She would surely never presume to write a book on one of the key moments of Christ’s life – nor would any reputable Christian publishing house entrust her to do so.

    However, for some “real life” examples of books written about the Christian view of Easter, I suggest “In the Fullness of Time” by Paul Maier, “The Cross of Christ” by John R. W. Stott, or “The Passion of Jesus Christ” by John Piper. These books – as well as numerous others which are similar to them – should prove to be edifying, informative, and inspiring to all who choose to read them.

    It’s surprising that you are unaware of the fact that Jesus did in fact celebrate Easter as is common knowledge to those who are familiar with early Christian literature as it is well documented that the impending crucifixion was revealed and well known to the Savior from an early age.

  • Erica

    ummm, Easter actually originates from paganism…..so stick that in your pipe and smoke it!

  • LgS

    Perfect. It’s a make-it-up-as-you-go-along religion anyway. All organized religions are so convoluted, they can’t even decide amongst themselves what the correct way to practice their religion is. Just look at all the different sub-groups there are in each major religion, each fighting with each other over who is right? If you actually take a step back and look at these religions it all seems a bit silly. So Sarah Palin’s views fit in perfectly.

    during the three days and nights that Jesus preached to the souls in abraham’s bosom christs apostles were walking to a nearby town in the hope of reaching it before the sabbath fell. The new testament tells us that it was during the parchal pagan festival of easter that jesus appeared to them on their journey but his identity was hidden from them. The egg came from the son of nimrod (Tamuz) who was supposed to have come down to earth in an egg in the river and the rabbit was just an early pregnancy test. Mankind has always screwed up dates, events and history. Next you’ll be telling me that Jesus was actually born in december ( that was Tamuz as well) and that he died and resurrected at easter ( which doesn’t match with the only jewish high passover of three days and nights in October. You guys spend so much time arguing over stats and worthless information that you have no time left to actually be christ like – honestly – Jesus doesn’t care about this stuff. “Martha martha thou art worried about many things, mary does that which is best and attends her lord.”

    Ok all of you idiots who think you are smarter then Sarah Palin. Dont flatter yourselves, in your harping on so called foo pahs by her, you prove even more so how stupid you are. 1. When she spoke at a tea party rally and said lets party like 1773. Untold numbers of you idiots jumped up and said see how stupid she is, she doesnt even know the date is 1776. Guess what Eiensteins, she was speaking at a Tea Party rally, Duh, the Boston Tea Party occurd in 1773. 2. Oh and then there’s the you can see Russia from Alaska. yes you can, at it’s closest point the Russian mainland is only 37 miles from parts of Alaska, thats closer then Cuba is to Florida. So what, you thought she was lying or just guessing. 3. Of course there is this BS article about she said Jesus Celebrated easter. The daily currant and the daily onion are synonimous. But I guess simpletons with dellusions of minimal inteligence would just jump up and say see I told ya she was stupid…..You wanna see stupid, look in a mirror.

    Matthew 12:40 “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Jesus died Friday night, was placed in the tomb Saturday, and was gone first thing sunday morning. How does that equal 3 days and 3 nights? Its only 1 day and 2 nights. Since the reference is to Jonah, who didn’t die in the belly of the fish but was alive…It is more likely that Jesus knew he was to be in the heart of the earth ‘alive’. He wouldn’t lie about it. Also the use of crucifixion as capital punishment was to inflict days of torture to the guilty. They would be strung up for days before dying of dehydration. Jesus stood trial, found guilty, put on the cross, viewed, died, washed and placed in the tomb all within the same day is not logical. So either Jesus lied when he said he would be in the heart of the earth like Jonah was in the belly of the fish (alive), or Jesus didn’t die. Either way the celebration of Easter as the resurrection of Jesus is just plain wrong.

    the only thing stated there is when the archangel Lucifer went against the creator and told him that mankind would not follow him in the long run.
    So he put all the misury and trubilation on jobe but still jobe kept praying to the creator, so lucifer was wrong and he was banished to earth. nothing more…
    and for your information due the time that the old testament was written the symbolism of the snake has never been something evil.
    the serpent symbolises Wisdom.
    wthats why pharaoes have em on their hats and most of the cultures back then involves snake symbolism due it symbolises wisdom, it was only trough the new testament that the vatican brought fourth that the serpent is talkked ab out as a demon and a shapeshift of licucifer, the fallen one…. plz, learn more facts than just reading king james bible… wont teach u anything

    As a former Roman Catholic and current Episcoplian, I am, of course horrified by Palin’s fractured fairy tale, but I’m also horrified that the Daily Current alleges that Easter is only of ‘ great significance’ to Western Christians. It is the central holy day of all Christians.

    I’d like Palin to consider that Jesus was actually a “liberal lefty” political agitator who practiced civil-disobedience and non-violence in his acts of rebellion against the Romans.

  • Ebenezer
  • Raschid Bey

    Jesus would have celebrated the Jewish ‘passover’ festival which the Jews had celebrated since the time of Moses, to give thanks for the escape from Eqypt. This occours at the time that we now call Easter. The term ‘Christian’ did not arise until after Jesus’s death and was probably first used by Paul in Antioch, the site of the world’s first christian church (which still can be seen today).

  • HildeK

    How to protest Roman abortion clinics??? She’s so dumb it huuuuurts…

    You are 100% wrong. Jesus purposely avoided politics. The Romans thought initially that He was associated with the Zealots, but when Pontius Pilate interrogated him, he pronounced him not guilty. Of course, the Jewish crowds preferred to save the life of the Zealot Barrabas.
    Jesus did not practice ‘civil disobedience’ but a religious disobedience in establishing himself as the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament.

    As far as non-violence goes, just ask the money changers in the temple.

    Not that i support Palin, but Jesus did Celebrate the Jewish Easter with his disciples (not the christian of cause). In the danish translation Easter means “pass by” I think its the meaning of the original hebrew word also. This refers to the Angel of Death passing by the houses in Egypt where the people of israel ‘painted’ the door posts with the blood of a newly slaughtered lamb.

  • Christian Johansen

    Hey. I got a afterthough.. Actually the Jews celebrate the same thing today. 1) The escape from Egypt, and if im not mistaken the comming of the next great prophet (The 2. Eliah. During the Celebration some child is sent out door to see if the prophet Eliah has returned). So the Jews are celebrating their expectation of the Messiah. One can easily argue that Jesus is the fullfillment of that prophecy/Expectation (Even though the Jews today don’t believe that). This leads to the claim that Jesus in fact celebrated his own coming. And therefore also did celebrate the Christian Easter. I’m not an expert in Jewish beliefs, so please prove me wrong.

    Sarah Palin says this stuff to attract media buzz. It is not enough for the media to report on it. We, as a people must react by illuminating and revealing the concealment within the rhetoric for what it is. After visiting the Dachau Concentration Camp, I became motivated to write a Weed Out Hate Manifesto as an absolute antithesis to Hitler’s Mein Kampf. As it turns out, we can no longer rely on our perceived political ethics of our founding mothers and fathers no longer apply because we have become detached from them from within the current social weed patch blight that is suffocating us. There are a lot of political parties within the political landscape. The appropriate grassroots response would be televised weed out hate mega-event which would reveal the concealment of mandates begin manipulated. Just think grassroots all over the country rooting out symbolic weeds of hatred while shedding a spiritual tear in the Creator’s direction. This would unleash trillions of divine tears back for irradiating and ionizing hatred in a dimension that humanity has not witnessed since Noah. Gives the concept of ‘eye for an eye’ a whole new meaning.
