St. Paul City Office Boots Easter Bunny
A small Easter display was removed from the [Saint Paul, Minnesota] City Hall lobby on Wednesday out of concern that it would offend non-Christians.

The display - a cloth Easter bunny, pastel-colored eggs and a sign with the words "Happy Easter'' - was put up by a City Council secretary. They were not purchased with city money.
If this is offensive to non-Christians, are there any plans to rename the city? Who do they think Saint Paul is?
It's not the first time a holiday symbol has been removed from City Hall. In 2001, red poinsettias were briefly banned from a holiday display because they were associated with Christmas.
How can you have a holiday display in December without including Christmas? That's not being sensitive; that's lunacy.
