If this was anyone other than Ms. Palin, I would say "Wow!" I thought maybe it was just a misworded reference to celebrating Easter, but no, it is deep down gross ignorance.

From the linked article:
Quote:
"Jesus would gather all the townspeople around and would listen to their stories about the meaning of Easter in their lives. Then he would teach them how to love one another, how to protest Roman abortion clinics and how to properly convert homosexuals.

"You can't even do things like that these days without getting called out by some wacko left-wing human rights group. Christians had more freedom under Roman rule than we do now in our own country! We need to return Easter back to the way it was when Jesus was alive."
Jesus gathered people to tell stories about the meaning of Easter? Jesus taught them how to protest Roman abortion clinics? Jesus had a method for converting homosexuals?

Where is she getting this information? I think someone has played a practical joke on her.

But as noted, in that this sort of extraordinary ignorance is nothing new at all for Ms. Palin, one can hardly call it a surprise.

Didn't you guys know that Jesus hid colored eggs, and filled baskets with marshmallow peeps and chocolate bunnies? The whole feeding the masses thing was just practice for multiplying one package of peeps to fill thousands of baskets.

Ug, I do not know which is worse, the fact that people are fooled by satire, or that satire is so close to reality that it can fool people?

People really should look into things before reposting. Whenever I see that such and such said X, I look for a sound bite, or at the very least, a second source.

Sara Palin has said so many incredibly stupid things, they really did not need to fabricate one.
