What might seem trivial proves to be very significant when juxtaposed with the burgeoning Muslim population in the UK.
Islamization only proceeds at the pace of the weakness of the non-Muslim society it seeks to subdue, and eventually supplant. Dhimmitude is the fear Muslims smell when staking their claim, giving them assurance that eventual takeover is achievable, that it will one day be completed.
Easter egg row: Church of England accuses National Trust of ‘airbrushing’ religion out of children’s egg hunt
The Church of England has accused the National Trust of “airbrushing faith” after it dropped the word “Easter” from its annual Easter egg hunt.
The annual event, which sees hundreds of thousands of children search for chocolate eggs at National Trust properties, has been rebranded to exclude Easter for the first time in 10 years.
In previous years it has been called an “Easter Egg Trail”, however this year it has been renamed the “Great British Egg Hunt”.
A spokesman for the Church of England said: “This marketing campaign…highlights the folly in airbrushing faith from Easter.”
It was also met with anger by the Archbishop of York, who said the decision to remove the word Easter from the egg hunt logo was tantamount to “spitting on the grave” of John Cadbury, the chocolate firm’s original founder.
He told the Daily Telegraph: “The Cadburys were Great Quaker industrialists. If people visited Birmingham today in the Cadbury World they will discover how Cadbury’s Christian faith influenced his industrial output.
“He built houses for all his workers, he built a Church, he made provision for schools. It is obvious that for him Jesus and justice were two sides of the one coin. To drop Easter from Cadbury’s Easter Egg Hunt in my book is tantamount to spitting on the grave of Cadbury.”
