St. Paul City Office Boots Easter Bunny

ABC News reports
A toy rabbit, pastel-colored eggs and a sign with the words "Happy Easter" were removed from the lobby of the City Council offices...

St. Paul's human rights director, Tyrone Terrill, asked that the decorations be removed, saying they could be offensive to non-Christians.

Was fear of offense the reason Marquette University didn't adopt it as team nickname? No, Marquette Bunnies was rejected as confusing because the term had been so widely used to describe its early season opponents.
