From News of the Weird:
Several parents walked out of a holiday program by the Glassport (Pa.) Assembly of God when the actors on stage began whipping the Easter bunny and breaking its eggs, which church officials said was an attempt to move past the benign symbols of the holiday and focus on the suffering of Christ. As children in the audience cried at the beatings, actors chanted, "There is no Easter bunny." [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette-AP, 4-7-04]Let's hope they don't put on a Christmas play with Santa Claus.
