You should not have included the Episcopalians in that list as the Episcopal Church has the Bible as their holy book. How come the Freedom from Religion Foundation doesn't complain about the Muslims and the other Non Christians on the Clemson University football team pushing their respective religions at Clemson University?
Atheists are so stupid to claim that Jesus is a myth. There is ample writings from ancient secular writers that prove the historicity of Jesus. Why do atheists deny the writings of those ancient secular writings pertaining to Jesus?

Well I was not brought up with anti-semitism and I was not taught in religious education class after school in elementary school to be against the Jews. I am not against Jews since Jesus was Jewish. I am Pro Israel.

Well I was not brought up with anti-semitism and I come from a Catholic family. And it is false that anti-semitism is part of the culture of the Catholic Church. I was never taught in religious education class after school in elementary school to be against the Jews which is what anti-semitism means.

Nowhere in the Bible does it forbid Christians from observing Passover (as long as one is doing it for Jesus; see Romans 14), and nowhere in the Bible is Easter even mentioned, much less commanded. Unless you mean that we are supposed to celebrate the Resurrection every day. But then that makes Easter irrelevant.
All of the Protestant Reformers didn't keep Passover in their churches that they formed. No Evangelical Protestant Church celebrates Passover. And secular aspect of Easter should be avoided but the religious aspect of Easter the Resurrection of Jesus is to be celebrated on Easter Sunday.
SF from TX wrote: Easter and the Passover are the same? That's not what my calendar says- April 15th=The Passover. April 18/20=Good Friday/Easter Sunday. Better yet that's not what my Bible says. An excellent article on the word easter in the KJV can be found here http://samgipp.com/answerbook/?page=02.htm
Christians are not supposed to be celebrating Passover anyway but are to celebrate the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
And yes the name Easter has pagan origins. But who cares because the secular aspect of Easter is not to be celebrated but instead the religious aspect of Easter which is the Resurrection of Jesus is to be celebrated.

Your other respondent, made some good comments to you too concerning Abuse Documentary: The Shame of the Catholic Church | Retro Report | The New York Times (12.5 min YouTube). From what I've heard, many Catholics are more attached to their local bishops than even their Popes! They are the ones who have a direct hand in the sinning and the cover-up.
It is inaccurate to use the terms Senior and Junior in referring to the two Bush presidents as father and son don't have the same middle name. The father is named George Herbert Walker Bush and the son is named George Walker Bush. In order for a father and son to be called Senior and Junior they both have to have the same middle name.
One thing is for certain and that is that the prayer by Robinson that fruit cake Episcopal Bishop was not heard by God as the prayers of fruit cakes are not heard by God unless it is a prayer asking to renounce their homosexuality and to embrace Jesus as their Savior.
Jim Lincoln wrote: "... I'm more than happy to focus on Franny, Vatican- It's wrong for pope to ask forgiveness, SNAP says" what did this have to do with Bush, except one keen observation about the Pope might as well be linked to Baby-Face Bush, and Ronnie Reagan. All made the same type of stupid statement. Taking responsibility with consequences is an empty gesture. Oh, yes, Bush Jr. Bush: Terrible President, Also Not a Smart Man. I believe Ronnie sent our first ambassador to the devi's den of the Vatican, and G. Jr., made a mawkish appearance J. Paul II funeral.
Who is G. Jr.? If you are referring to George W. Bush then you made a mistake since George W. Bush is not Jr. since his name is George Walker Bush and his father's name is George Herbert Walker Bush. In order for a son to called Jr. he must have the same middle name as his father. Same thing with Reagan and his son. Reagan's son is named Ronald Prescott Reagan while Reagan was named Ronald Wilson Reagan.
And who would know about Satan's emissary more than you since you are one of Satan's emissaries with your constant insane dribble about that if one who has embraced Jesus as their Savior and trusts in Him alone for salvation doesn't leave the Catholic Church an doesn't unite with an Evangelical Protestant Church that they are not really saved. That is so unscriptural that it stagers the imagination. The Bible states that the only requirement for salvation is to become Born Again by embracing Jesus as ones Savior and trust in Him alone for salvation.
