I find it humorous that Mr. Ransom in an article entitled "Cue the Semi-Educated, Liberal Attacks on Easter As Pagan" use the Catholic Encyclopedia for a reference when IN THE ARTICLE the quote states"...This custom is found not only in the Latin but also in the Oriental Churches. The symbolic meaning of a new creation of mankind by Jesus risen from the dead was probably an invention of later times. The custom may have its origin in paganism, for a great many pagan customs, celebrating the return of spring, gravitated to Easter. The egg is the emblem of the germinating life of early spring..." Doesn't the evidence HE USES to blame Liberals say the tradition "...may have its origin in paganism..."?
