In Dearborn, MI, Yusef's Egg Farm refuses to sell eggs to be used as Easter eggs. As a devout Muslim, Yusef could sell eggs for cakes, scrambling, overeasy, sunny side up, or throwing at cars, but not for use in Easter rituals.
"Some Christians came in and wanted some eggs to dye. I just can't sell for activities that conflict with my religion. I feel the Easter bunny and the Easter egg hunt is designed to convert our children into Christians. Don't you want to hunt for eggs from a giant bunny? Then they've got you as a Christian!"
Unfortunately, the ACLU got involved. Yusef could lose his farm and he's put all his eggs in that one basket, but he thinks it is worth it. "My religious beliefs are more important than my farm."
His rival, Bob's Egg Farm, located in Flint, understands Yusef. Bob sells special Easter eggs from sanctified hens. Bob says, "I would pitch a fit if someone was using my eggs in some preverted(sic) way. I don't care for all the different types of people nowadays. I like old fashioned America where we didn't have to think about how people are using our eggs."
