Theresa May got it all wrong. The christian Prime Minister of the UK was completely outraged over the idea that the National Trust dropped the word “Easter” from their annual Easter Egg hunt.
This story apparently came from from the Archbishop of York, who accused the National Trust of “airbrushing faith” from Easter. Theresa May, without fact checking any of this, lashed out in a fit of outrage.
Easter’s very important. It’s important to me. It’s a very important festival for the Christian faith for millions across the world. So I think what the National Trust is doing is frankly just ridiculous.
The story, however, is not true. Neither Cadbury nor the National Trust have removed the word easter from their advertisment or website. Which begs the question. Of course we can laugh at the silliness of this hypersensitivity of right-wing conservatives when it comes to cultural change, but shouldn’t the real concern be about the gullibillity of the UK’s leader in a time when she’ll be responsible for negotiating one of the biggest economical transitions in history?
