Easter is the Christian implementation of the Spring Equinox festival, celebrated by most cultures who happen to inhabit the Northern Hemisphere of our planet. In the Christian instantiation, it is based on accepting the dogma that ‘god’ sacrificed his ‘son’ to suffer for the ‘sins’ of the entire human population.
Issues I have include:
o A completely pre modern, anthropomorphic religious view (son of god).
o Venerating the barbaric, superstitious practice of seeking supernatural favors with the sacrifice of any living creature – let alone a Human being!
o Disconnecting Humans from responsibility for their own actions (died for our ‘sins’).
As Humans, we celebrate the spring as a manifestation of the rebirth of life, and perhaps as a fresh start: that alone is sufficient.
