White House war on Easter: Party, but no proclamation?
How can we possibly trust a president who doesn't remind us that he knows which Christian holiday it is?

White House war on Easter: Party, but no proclamation?

AP/Charles Dharapak

President Obama stands with the Easter Bunny during the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday.



Barack Obama says he's a Christian, but he refuses to celebrate Easter, the holiest of Christian holidays not involving Santa. As Fox Nation reports, the White House didn't release an Easter proclamation. Because it hates Easter.

In addition to hating Easter, the Obama Administration seems to love ... a different religion:

President Obama failed to release a statement or a proclamation recognizing the national observance of Easter Sunday, Christianity's most sacred holiday.

By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010 on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.

The White House also failed to release a statement marking Good Friday. However, they did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day. Likewise, the president's weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter.


Why does the White House ignore the resurrection of Jesus Christ while honoring secular liberal Islamofascism?

Thankfully, our press corps was on the case! White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked why the president declared war on Easter at today's briefing. He literally laughed at the question, instead of answering it. The arrogance of this administration is breathtaking: :D

Sure, the White House had its annual "egg roll" on the lawn, with tens of thousands of children and a giant rabbit and general Easterness, but without a White House proclamation how could anyone have known yesterday was Easter? As Fox Nation commenter "jfitz" writes: "He gives his flock a happy Ramadanadingdong, but shows little regard for Easter. Why give his slight a second thought. After all, he is not of our culture."

1. Ramadanadingdong? Really?
This is just weird, really weird, and capped off with bigotry to boot.

It really doesn't matter what Obama does or does not do... those who want to find fault in him will find fault in him.

That's ok... real Christians don't judge.

Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 07:57 PM by woo me with science
proclaiming that Obama spoke on Muslim holidays but passed on Easter...with a photo of a lightning bolt coming down over the White House on Easter.

Gee...I wonder what the underlying message is supposed to be... :sarcasm:

5. You can show support by giving Donation to "Operation Home Front."
It's for a good cause supporting our troops and it's sponsered by the First Lady.
