Baseball Game an Affront to Christians

"The Detroit Tigers have upset some Roman Catholics who are unhappy that the club’s home opener is scheduled during holy hours on Good Friday on April 10.

Traditional Christian belief says Jesus hung on the cross from noon to 3 p.m. on Good Friday.

All 30 American and National League teams play April 10, but the Tigers’ 1:05 p.m. game against the Texas Rangers is the only one during holy hours."

Is it really that important considering Easter is a roving holiday, occurring the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Equinox (which changes at least every couple hundred years)? So complaining about something being scheduled during the alleged hours of a changing holiday of one religion is ludicrious. Besides, we all know how historically accurate nutjobs tend to be (i.e. when it suits their purposes).
