Knaves: Government bureaucrats who have in their endless war on Christians fallen upon the Easter Bunny.

The Editorial Board occasionally decides to switch the order of “Nobles and knaves” when one week’s particular Noble reacts to that week’s Knave.

And so it was in St. Paul, Minn., where City Hall’s “human-rights director,” Tyrone Terrill, in his divine wisdom removed a toy rabbit and pastel-covered eggs which had been placed in the lobby beneath a sign of “Happy Easter.” To the multicultural crowd and idiot-savants in general, this kind of overt Christianizing of sacred government hallways is unconstitutional of the highest order, since it might “offend non-Christians,” according to the Associated Press. Offensive-prone Christians should hope that Mr. Terrill never figures out whom the city of St. Paul is named after.

A little closer to home is the Fairfax County Park Authority, which at Lake Accontink Park on April 15 is having a little event for the kids (all ages) from 12-3 pm. “Great kids’ activity!” reads the post on the Park Authority’s Web site. “Children hunt treat-filled eggs and visit the Spring Bunny.” If you’re wondering what the “Spring Bunny” is, give the Park Authority a call at 703-569-0285.

For leaving no Christian symbol behind, the government bureaucrats of St. Paul and Fairfax County are the Knaves of the week.

Nobles: Offended Christians in St. Paul, for defending the Easter Bunny.

It’s ironic that the same folks who constantly worry about the sensibilities of non-Christians never give the same respect to Christians.

From the AP: “Marshmallow Peeps have been multiplying outside [St. Paul] City Hall as a symbol of protest over last week’s decision to evict the Easter Bunny. A handful of employees have placed the spongy chick- and rabbit-shaped candies around a City Hall statue of American Indians, along with two signs that temporarily rename the ‘Vision of Peace’ statue as the ‘Vision of Peeps.’ ” Beware the wrath of a Christian scorned. It’s true that sometimes the most effective way to counter absurdity is with humor.

Here’s an idea for Christian parents who might attend the Lake Accontink “Spring Bunny” event on April 15: When you take your kids to visit the “Spring Bunny,” have them offer it a few Marshmallow Peeps.

For fighting against the war on Easter, the St. Paul City Hall employees are the Nobles of the week.
