Insha'Allah by the grace of Allah they will soon realise the truth and beauty of Islam.
Let us make dua In Sha Allah that we are guided down the right path.

Ameen.

Funnily enough, painted eggs at Easter may actually predate Christianity. Celebrating the start of spring goes a long way back and eggs have symbolised new life since forever. So basically the CoE is angry because the symbolism they stole from others has now been stolen from them. :beard:

It is great to see the courageous Therea May take time out from flogging weapons to a totalitarian regime that bans freedom of religion to complain about the National Trust and Easter eggs.

It's pagan. Once Christians took it over now atheists have from Christians.

I think it is more about identity in the UK (+ Europe/ Western world) as it shifts from a Christian to a post-Christian or secular society/ country.

Some might accuse non-Christians of causing this as they might be offended, but actually if you examine it closely, it looks to be much more of a marketing/ advertising campaign push by Cadburys.

From my perspective, it looks like Cadbury has seized upon "The Great British Bake Off" slogan familiarity and other similar phrases popping up such as Break British Cake Off etc... and instead applied it to to promote Cadburys brand name by changing the name from "Easter Egg Trail" to " Cadbury's Great British Egg Hunt" similar to phrasing used by GBBO as well as promoting the brand name in the phrase rather than just putting a sub-header, saying "by or sponsored by Cadburys"


Similar issues could also relate to other religious festivals which the public sector lacks the funding of to provide great experiences for our high desires/ aspirations/ expectations, with private sector companies seeking to provide funds but with the condition of having the power to promote their branding which can bring into conflict between the sanctity and sacredness between religion and corporations which are increasingly dominant today.

E.g. look at the queues and obsession outside an Apple store/ boxing day sales or a football club game when a new iphone is released/ matchday versus the people outside/ engaged in church on sundays for instance.

tbh Theresa May only made a fuss as it appeals to her expected base - conservative voters tend to be christian and assert british/ christian heritage and customs and traditions as opposed to reformists/ revolutionaries

doesnt anyone remember the time David Cameron used to make PR visits to church with all cameras and photographers and make bold statements such as Britain is a Christian country and it backfired with many commentators including christian figures like archbishop of the church of england or was it the former archbishop saying that britain is a post-christian society.

note of advice: dont obsess and be fooled by what politicans say.

Do you remember that son of a vicar Gordon Brown sitting in that inquiry telling us all it was his presbyterian conscience that drove government policy on drugs and gambling and not the Daily Mail.

Religion has plenty of sociological uses. It binds a community closer together and makes them more willing to fight for their ideals. Irreligion is part of the reason why the West is so soft and timid nowadays. Look at the refugee crisis and our timid response to Islamic terrorism.

Its a private company. Surely it can do as it likes within the bounds of the law?

Don't buy their chocolate, let the market judge if this is right or wrong.

Yes. Exactly like that. But it can be used for good as well as bad.
