Fox News broke the news Easter morning that the image of Jesus Christ had been found on a pancake, and even had a Catholic priest on hand to evaluate the breakfast food prior to a segment about the “War on Easter.”

KABC on Friday reported that employees at a Southern California restaurant were making a “Mickey Mouse” pancake for a child customer when the “face of Jesus” appeared on the pancake.

“A pancake cooked up on Good Friday had an image of Jesus Christ,” Fox & Friends host Wendell Goler told Father Jonathan Morris on Sunday.

“It looks like Forest Gump when he was running,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt pointed out.

“Or John Lennon,” co-host Clayton Morris added.

“Is it Jesus?” Goler laughed.

“Let’s ask Father Jonathan Morris to weigh in on it,” Morris said, turning to the Fox News contributor.

“I did not make that pancake, and I don’t claim that is Jesus,” Morris insisted. “For the record.”

“Jesus is not a pancake!” Earhardt announced.

The remainder of the segment was dedicated to outrage over a group of atheists who had put up anti-religion signs in Chicago, which Fox News has dubbed a “War on Easter.”

“The one thing I can’t get over, when you think about the significance of today, it’s all about love, it’s all about forgiveness,” Goler noted. “I mean, anything you do, any transgression, there’s forgiveness for it.”

“Even if you’re antagonistic or atheistic,” he added. “God says, ‘OK, you don’t have to believe in me, I’m still going to love you.’”

Morris observed that the Easter message of Christ was that he was willing to lay down his life for others.

“That’s a good message,” Earhardt agreed. “Not being mad at the atheist group, but to lay down our lives for them and love them.”

“Never forget the forgiveness factor, it’s all the bottom line about love,” Goler opined.
