Now that Easter is over, it looks like there will be 38 people prosecuted by the Labour Department (15% up on last year) for the crime of selling things that people want at times the Labour Department didn’t want them to.
The Department will consider the prosecution of 38 retailers after 19 were caught trading on Good Friday and another 19 on Easter Sunday.
" ‘We still have to assess the information the inspectors come back with,’ Labour department communications adviser Colin Patterson said.”
That would be 50 inspectors who went out to work to make sure other people don’t. In order to stop other people doing things that religionists don’t want them to, and unionists won’t allow them to.
Stupid? It sure is. Confused? Everyone certainly is.
But at least we now know that “nowhere in the Bible does Jesus have a sword fight.” [Hat tip Imperator Fish]
UPDATE 1: PZ Myers spotted some strange Easterly goings on over the Tasman:
First, they had their church leaders focus their Easter sermons on how yucky those atheists are. Then one fanatical group decided to show how wonderful Christianity is by staging a crucifixion in public, complete with blood and nails and moaning dying hippie.
“I find this hilarious.”
Especially hilarious when good Christian folk start complaining the barbarity might frighten the children. Haven’t they read their Bible?
UPDATE 2: And always, in the Easter Aftermath, is the media’s statistically inept navel-gazing about The Road Toll . . .
