The Church of England has accused the National Trust of "airbrushing faith" after it dropped the word "Easter" from its annual Easter egg hunt. - The Telegraph.
It is unlikely that the Church of England would understand today but I would have thought it only fitting since Cadbury dropped Easter when they went halal - see entry Will it be a Halal Easter?
Cadbury is reported as saying that it wanted to appeal to non-Christians: "We invite people from all faiths and none to enjoy our seasonal treats."
The fact that Islam denies that Jesus died on the Cross so there could be no Resurrection so no "Easter" egg for Muslims is neither here nor there where a fast buck is to be made.
In response to accusations of “Muslim appeasement” Cadbury commented “None of our UK products are [sic] halal certified and we have never made any changes to our chocolate to specifically make them halal.”
In their UK Nutrition Definitions, under 'Halal' appears "To ensure that you receive the most accurate possible information to determine whether our products are suitable for your dietary requirements, we recommend you visit www.foodguide.org.uk for the latest material regarding Halal suitability.
