    Easter was never observed by the Apostles of Christ or Christ's Religion. "The name 'Easter' comes to us from the mythlogical writings of the Ancient Teucrians (who lived 1200BC along the southern coast of Palestine) where it's known as 'Ostern'" BY GROVER STEVENS. "The name 'Easter' is merely the slightly changed English spelling of the name of the ancient Assyrian and Babylonian idol goddess, Ishtar (pronounced eesh-tar)." WEBSTER'S DICTIONARY says "Easter is from the pre-historic name of a pagan spring festival." THE OXFORD DICTIONARY OF ENGLISH ETYMOLOGY says, "Easter is derived from the name of goddess whose feast was celebrated at the vernal equinox." THE SCHOLARY NEW SCHAFF-HERZOG RELIGIOUS ENCYCLOPEDIA says, "This goddess is also widely known as Astarte...The cult originated in Babylonia and spread to Assyria, Mesopotamia, Syria & Palestine, then through the Phoenicians to all of the Meditteranean peoples...Ishtar was in fact primarily and chiefly identified as Venus, the most beautiful of celestial objects & from the terrestrial side, the primarily motive of the worship of Ishtar was the impulse to deify sensuous and sensuality." ALEXANDER HISLOP SAYS IN THE TWO BABYLONS (P.103), "Easter bears its Chaldean origin on its forehead. Easter is nothing else than Asarte, one of the titles of Beltis, the queen of heaven..."

    The original Queen of Heaven was Inanna, the goddess of Love and War. She was a very popular goddess, and a favorite of the god Anu, the Lord of Heaven. Eventually she was taken as the consort of early Yhvh, but eventually was dropped as Judaism evolved into monotheism. Stories of this goddess predate the bible by at least a thousand years, in the land of Sumer. Eventually, in Catholicism Mary kinda took her place as the mother of god, and thus the queen of heaven.

    I have never heard of a queen of heaven, not from any ministers nor in the Holy Bible.

    Catholics believe that Mary is the Queen of Heaven and that she is a co-redeemer along with Jesus and that she intercedes for us when we pray. They also believe she remained a virgin for her entire life.

    The Bible refutes this, saying that she had other children with Joseph, and that she was a sinner just like everyone else. The Bible says we should only pray to God because he hears us and we don't need someone else to intercede.

    Queen of Heaven is a title of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Roman Catholicism. It may also refer to a goddess of antiquity or to a Christian hymn.

    Mary crowned as queen in heaven;

    Revelation 12:1-5

    1And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

    2And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

    3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

    4And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

    5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and [to] his throne.
