Anyway, I find the image to be extremely appropriate. I always found Catholic imagery to be frightening as a child. It was always so...bloody. I always would imagine the smell of ancient blood splattered on the ground. Blood everywhere. Scary Inquisition victim blood. Scary tortured and crucified Jesus soaked in blood.
It disgusted me. And any church literature on the subject I've seen was just as awful. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the need for spiritual beliefs, but does an organization have to slap others in the face with bloody images? Just preach the word and let those who want to hear it listen and those who don't, leave them alone. Do you have to "save" or condemn everybody?
But the rabbit laying Jesus eggs is not so strange. A rabbit laying a Jesus egg actually is quite religiously mythological. This is precisely how religion works. The evolution of it. The rabbit, the egg, Jesus, the blood – all religious symbols.
The animal fertility character giving birth to the human sacrifice. The idea of Easter is just another holiday lifted from Pagan religions anyway. What came first, the bunny or the egg? It certainly wasn't Jesus, speaking historically or um, metaphorically.
I'm sure I'll have a bunch of psychos responding with hate-filled comments about this image that I didn't create - and my commentary that may challenge their beliefs. But why? What problem could anyone possibly have with this? It’s all very Jesus-y.
Could it be that since the blood is the rabbit's that is what makes you mad? You guys are the same types who bought Beatles records and then burned them when John Lennon observed that they were indeed bigger than Jesus in the minds of the young. Which coincidentally was kind of true.
Let's put this into context. The Easter Bunny is just creepy anyway. Not that I really have to give any examples, but I'm gonna.

Let's have a look at some other creepy Easter Bunnies.

Happy creepy Easter! Don't leave your eggs exposed for very long. Those wabbits look hungry. I'll just be over here minding my own business and biting the heads off of chocolate Jesuses and Easter Bunnies.
