NYT wonders, "What is the 'Easter' you speak of? Pls tell us more about this obscure, ancient ritual.'— Kirsten Powers (@KirstenPowers) April 1, 2013
You can’t make this stuff up!
Easter is hard.
Oh my. And, yes, that happened.
More from NewsBusters:
Easter is the celebration of the resurrection into heaven of Jesus, three days after he was crucified, the premise for the Christian belief in an everlasting life. In urging peace, Francis called on Jesus to ”change hatred into love, vengeance into forgiveness, war into peace.”
The Times issued this correction:
An earlier version of this article mischaracterized the Christian holiday of Easter. It is the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection from the dead, not his resurrection into heaven.
Mistakes happen. But this one is incredible.
Worse: The writer of the article is a reporter based in Rome, who frequently reports on the Vatican. No, really.
The mockery continues:
Do we smell a hashtag?
