People who celebrate the Christian version of Easter are honoring the age-old practice of child sacrifice, the most despicable religious tradition of them all. The belief that God had to kill his firstborn to appease God (who happened to be himself) stems from the ancient, (devastating) belief that to seek the approval from the gods, one must shed human or animal blood. This was a primitive practice that extended into the times of the Old Testament.
A real god can forgive without anyone having to murder another living being. Seriously. If I can do it, so can “God.” If the Biblical God were real, he would have used Jesus’ life to expose the absurdity of child sacrifice, not to perpetuate it.
