Obama Commemorates All Muslim Holidays, But Skips Christianity’s Most Sacred


“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.

However, the First Family did attend an Easter Sunday worship service at a Baptist church and last week, the president hosted an Easter breakfast for Christian ministers. In that gathering, the president spoke openly about the Christian faith.

And today, the president and first lady will host 30,000 people for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. The secular celebration of Easter includes readings, games, and a yoga garden. This year’s theme, ‘Get Up and Go!’ is part of the first lady’s anti-obesity campaign and will also display produce from the White House garden.”  Read more.

    I think that this may be telling us a lot about where Obamas heart is faith wise – it points to Obamas real faith Islam – Islam and a true muslim can not admit that God has a Son nor can it admit that Christ was crucified, died and rose from the dead

    I don’t know what to believe from Obama’s mouth anymore. In all fairness, although the White House didn’t release any official statement for Easter at least he tried to say, well, something … see here.
