No Zombie Jesus Day

Annie and I saw a comment on Facebook saying that the term "Zombie Jesus Day" was offensive. At first, we thought that it was a little bit of an over-reaction. Then, we thought about it a bit, and it occurred to us that it was entirely true. Easter is the most important day of the Christian calendar. Yes, more important and sacred than Christmas. If we called Passover "Blood Splatter on the Door Day," it would be considered offensive, but because Christianity is the mainstream religion, people feel free to make fun it.

People are certainly entitled to their own religious views, but no one has the right to belittle another person's beliefs, even if they are mainstream. I'm sure that many people who enjoy this joke are bad people, but rather that they have just not thought about the implications of what they are saying.
