Biden White House Disrespects Easter

The Biden White House has banned religious-themed artwork from this 12 months’s Easter egg artwork contest, barring any “any questionable content” which apparently consists of “religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements.” Pair that with Biden declaring Easter Sunday this 12 months the “Transgender Day of Visibility,” and plenty of are calling him out for the overtly anti-God strategy to the vacation.

A flyer detailing the 2024 contest touts the Easter traditions of the White House, figuring out the vacation — which celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, the Son of God, rising from the useless after paying the final word sacrifice to reconcile humanity again to God — as “one of the oldest time-honored traditions at the White House”:

On behalf of First Lady Jill Biden, The Adjutants General of the National Guard are asking youth from National Guard households throughout the United States and all U.S. territories to submit paintings impressed by the theme “Celebrating our Military Families.”

Yet the Biden administration is eliminating God from the vacation as a lot as attainable, regardless of that being your complete level of Easter.

The Easter egg artwork contest asks youth from National Guard households to “submit artwork inspired by the theme “Celebrating our Military Families.”

“Selected designs representing the unique experience and stories of National Guard children will be brought to life on real hen eggs by talented egg artists from across the country and displayed at the White House this Easter and Passover season,” the flyer reads earlier than itemizing off restrictions for the competition.

It states partially that the submission should not embrace “any questionable content” earlier than particularly itemizing “religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements.”

In different phrases, kids are barred from designing an Easter egg that has something to do with the precise level of Easter — Jesus’ resurrection.

This comes additionally as President Biden determined to declare March 31, 2024, Easter Sunday this 12 months, the “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

In the proclamation, Biden defines transgender Americans as a part of the “fabric of our Nation,” deeming those that defend kids from transgender ideology “extremists.”

Biden’s official proclamation continued:

Transgender Americans are a part of the material of our Nation.  Whether serving their communities or within the army, elevating households or working companies, they assist America thrive.  They deserve, and are entitled to, the identical rights and freedoms as each different American, together with essentially the most basic freedom to be their true selves.  But extremists are proposing lots of of hateful legal guidelines that focus on and terrify transgender youngsters and their households — silencing lecturers; banning books; and even threatening mother and father, docs, and nurses with jail for serving to mother and father get care for his or her kids.  These payments assault our most elementary American values:  the liberty to be your self, the liberty to make your individual well being care choices, and even the correct to lift your individual little one.  It is not any shock that the bullying and discrimination that transgender Americans face is worsening our Nation’s psychological well being disaster, main half of transgender youth to contemplate suicide prior to now 12 months.

At the identical time, an epidemic of violence towards transgender ladies and women, particularly ladies and women of coloration, continues to take too many lives.  Let me be clear:  All of those assaults are un-American and should finish.  No one ought to need to be courageous simply to be themselves.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by advantage of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the legal guidelines of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024, as Transgender Day of Visibility.  I name upon all Americans to affix us in lifting up the lives and voices of transgender individuals all through our Nation and to work towards eliminating violence and discrimination based mostly on gender identification.

These strikes coupled collectively prompted a variety of responses.

“Biden is banning religious symbols from Easter celebrations at the White House, while flying the trans flag and declaring Easter Sunday to be ‘Trans Visibility Day,’” Donald Trump Jr. mentioned.

“This is the left’s new religion. They want people worshiping the trans flag instead of God. They must be stopped,” he added:

“The Biden White House has betrayed the central tenet of Easter — which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” House Speaker Mike Johnson mentioned.

“Banning sacred truth and tradition—while at the same time proclaiming Easter Sunday as “Transgender Day”—is outrageous and abhorrent. This is why the American persons are taking be aware,” he mentioned. Others weighed in:

The erasure of the true that means of Easter by the Democrat administration warrants a reminder from the Gospel of Matthew:

Now after the Sabbath, towards the daybreak of the primary day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the opposite Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a terrific earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and got here and rolled again the stone and sat on it. His look was like lightning, and his clothes white as snow. And for concern of him the guards trembled and have become like useless males. But the angel mentioned to the ladies, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he[a] lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” So they departed shortly from the tomb with concern and nice pleasure, and ran to inform his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and mentioned, “Greetings!” And they got here up and took maintain of his toes and worshiped him. Then Jesus mentioned to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”

The Christian celebration of Easter is all in regards to the resurrection of Jesus, the Son of God, despatched to Earth to redeem mankind and reconcile humanity again to God by providing the proper sacrifice — one thing humanity was unable to do by itself. And the devoted cling to those phrases of Jesus in John 16: “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
