The Liberty Counsel is expressing its outrage against candy companies, and even threatening to sue companies because their Easter candy doesn’t say “easter” on it. Many candy companies have decided to write ‘happy holidays,’ or something to do with Springtime.
The Liberty Counsel is the group that defended Kentucky clerk Kim Davis during her court case to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
The group took to their website to express that American candy companies should be more respectful of the very important holiday where Jesus Christ was resurrected. They assert that by changing their packaging to no longer include the word ‘Easter’, they are giving in to outside influences.
In more Easter news, the Element Church is going to do its annual Easter Egg Hunt at McNair Stadium in Forest City, North Carolina, on Easter Sunday.
Richard Hayden, a teaching pastor at the church, told The Christian Post that between 2,000 and 2,500 people are expected to attend: “We will be dropping the same amount of eggs this year as previous years. They are dropped from a helicopter.”
According to Hayden, there will be a message to convert people to Christianity before the estimated 20,000 eggs are dropped.
“We pray for salvation to take place and for those in attendance to understand the love of God through the presentation of the Gospel,” Hayden stated.
The church is open about its intention to proselytize on its website:
Element Church will aggressively utilize methodologies in an attempt to reach people who are far from God. Rather than run from culture we have chosen to harness it to connect with people and show them God’s timeless truths. Although our approach is anything but traditional, we believe in and maintain a conservative theological position.
