    Happy feast of the Goddess Eostre and Goddess:
    • Ishtar was the goddess of love and war and sex, as well as protection, fate, childbirth, marriage, and storms—there's some fertility in there, but as with Aphrodite, there is also an element of power. Her cult practiced sacred prostitution, where women waited at a temple and had sex with a stranger in exchange for a divine blessing (and money to feed hungry children or pay a debt).
    • Ishtar's symbols were the the lion, the morning star, and eight or sixteen pointed stars—again, symbols of power.

    Well, it turns out Easter actually began as a pagan festival celebrating spring in the Northern Hemisphere, long before the advent of Christianity.

    I'm not bashing Easter or anything. I celebrate Christ's resurrection and attend Mass on Easter and receive Holy Eucharist. But I think the Mother God in all her myriad forms (Not to be confused with the "Mother of God") is making a comeback , and should be represented as well.

    It was originally her celebration and festival long before Christ. Just sayin....

    Also, Lady Libertatis (The statue of liberty) is in fact a statue of Ishtar.

          Jesus didn’t say celebrate my resurrection.
          but he did say to memorialize his death
          New International Version
          And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.

          easter is eoster. It is a pagan holiday of fertility
