A Rhode Island public school decided to go for a more politically correct Easter representation this season when they changed the name of the iconic Easter Bunny to “Peter Rabbit,” claiming that the original was too Christian.

The new “Peter” was meant to be part of a school craft fair that was organized at Tiverton Middle School in Tiverton, R.I., about 60 miles south of Boston, and was renamed by William Rearick, the school district’s superintendent, so that it would be more respectful to people’s differing backgrounds.

The name alteration has created a stir and even prompted one of the Rhode Island legislators to begin work on a bill to prevent anyone from changing the name of the Easter Bunny. (Source: Christian Post)
