Some Easter Shout-Outs


Easter
Originally uploaded by dangunderman.
Despite my traumatic Easter experience as a three-year-old, I tend to have decent enough feelings about the Easter holidays. Chocolate eggs and egg salad are both delicious, after all. And a few pieces of Easter news deserve some shout-outs:

First shout-out goes to president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo of the Phillippines. Inspired by the life-affirming message of Easter, she commuted every death sentence in her country.

Pope Benedict gets the second shout-out. His Easter message was one of peace, giving a gentle ribbing to our war-mongering president. And this guy was a former Nazi!

And finally, a special shout-out goes to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who conquered death, defeated Satan, and (perhaps most impressively) rolled the stone away from his tomb. He is risen!

(Come on, people. You're all supposed to reply, "He is risen indeed!" you godless heathens.)

Speaking of traumatic Easter experiences, have you studied for Mr. Hass' Easter Test? It's 500 questions, you know, and nobody's ever gotten a perfect score, not even Big John.

Oh, and "He is risen indeed! Hallelujah!"

Shall we pass the peace now?
