A viral "news story" published on DailyCurrant.com claims that former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin proclaimed during a recent TV interview that "We need to return Easter back to the way it was when Jesus was alive."
That would be an incredibly ignorant remark to make given that Easter is the celebration of Christ's resurrection, but here's the thing: Palin said no such thing. The Daily Currant is a satirical website and all the quotes in the article are fictitious (read the disclaimer).
