A conservative group at the University of North Texas decided to hold an Easter egg hunt, that included Bible verses, hidden across the North Texas campus.
The Blaze reports that members of the group started receiving death threats from woke university students, who only tolerate people that agree with their opinions.
The Blaze reports:
A conservative student group at the University of North Texas said the group received threats after distributing Easter eggs filled with Bible verses around the university campus.
On Sunday, members of the Young Conservatives of Texas UNT placed approximately 250 plastic Easter eggs filled with biblical messages of hope around the campus.
Kelly Neidert, the group’s chairman, told the Christian Post that the group hid the eggs to celebrate Easter amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“My group decided we wanted to do this event because our school has really strict COVID guidelines right now, and we just thought that putting some Easter eggs out with some Bible verses would be kind of fun for everybody and a good way to celebrate Eater without breaking our COVID guidelines,” Neidert explained.

Some students looked for the Easter eggs, so they could deliberately destroy them.
Here is a little known fact. In the lead up to World War II, the Nazis in Austria and Germany held massive book burning ceremonies where it burned any books that did not agree with the Nazi ideology. This included Jewish and even Christian books.
What isn’t widely known is that book burnings were organized by university students, the German Student Union (the Deutsche Studentenschaft).
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum explains:
On May 10, 1933 student groups at universities across Germany carried out a series of book burnings of works that the students and leading Nazi party members associated with an “un-German spirit.” Enthusiastic crowds witnessed the burning of books by Brecht, Einstein, Freud, Mann and Remarque, among many other well-known intellectuals, scientists and cultural figures, many of whom were Jewish. The largest of these book bonfires occurred in Berlin, where an estimated 40,000 people gathered to hear a speech by the propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, in which he pronounced that “Jewish intellectualism is dead” and endorsed the students’ “right to clean up the debris of the past.”
