The UK is once again in the grips of the contrived annual outrage over "Easter" being 'banned' in the name of political correctness. It follows in the proud tradition of the Daily Mail trying to convince readers that Christmas has been replaced by "Winterval".
This year it is the National Trust and Cadbury coming in for criticism in the media for allegedly dropping "Easter" from their annual egg hunt.
The Telegraph reports:
"The National Trust was facing a membership boycott amid a growing backlash over the decision to drop "Easter" from the name of its annual Easter egg hunt."
The Express adds:
"Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu accused [Cadbury] of "spitting on the grave" of its religious founder by removing references to Christianity's most sacred festival from the spring event it runs nationwide with the [National Trust]."
And even Theresa May has jumped on the bandwagon, telling ITV News:
"I'm not just a vicar's daughter - I'm a member of the National Trust as well. I think the stance they've taken is absolutely ridiculous and I don't know what they're thinking about. Easter's very important. It's important to me, it's a very important festival for the Christian faith...so I think what the National Trust is doing is frankly just ridiculous."
Of course, this is all nonsense, as this screenshot of the National Trust's website makes very clear.
