"Hail Bunny, Full Of Grace..."

From the "You Gotta Be Kiddin' Me comes this story from St. Paul, MN:

The Easter Bunny has been sent packing at St. Paul City Hall.

A toy rabbit, pastel-colored eggs and a sign with the words "Happy Easter" were removed from the lobby of the City Council offices, because of concerns they might offend non-Christians.

A council secretary had put up the decorations. They were not bought with city money.

St. Paul's human rights director, Tyrone Terrill, asked that the decorations be removed, saying they could be offensive to non-Christians.

If this sounds too stupid to be true, remember that this is the same community that banned RED poinsettia (not white ones) at Christmastime because they were deemed too religious and offensive. My question to the people of St. Paul:

What religion is it that worships flowers and bunnies? I'd love to join, but I have no idea what it is.
