Obama skips Good Friday, Easter messages to Christians

No Easter video translated into Arabic and other languages? No shock, via the White House Dossier, What? No Easter Greeting?

Just when I thought the current team running the White House might have used up all its allotted mistakes comes word that President Obama failed to issue either an Easter or a Good Friday greeting to the nation.

Now, let’s forget for a moment that these greetings, which presidents issue on many holidays and commemorations of events, are largely perfunctory and symbolic gestures that nobody cares about.

Until there’s a problem with them.

Fox News first caught the blunder and put it into context that makes the omission insulting to Christians. The mistake is odd enough to call into question just what Obama’s priorities are.

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  . . . did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day. Likewise, the president’s weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter.

Obama, Fox notes, did head out to church yesterday and held an Easter prayer breakfast at the White House last week.

Obama is on a roll for religious holiday greeting screw ups. Fox News writes:

In 2010, Obama was criticized for releasing an all-inclusive Easter greeting. He reached out to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and people of no faith at all in a statement about a holiday that is uniquely Christian.

And as I noted last week, the president released a Passover greeting this month that compared the ancient Jewish exodus from Egypt to the Arab political awakening this year, which would be a beautiful thing if most Arabs didn’t seek Israel’s destruction.

Anyone who thinks Obama (or his handlers) doesn’t know what he is doing is severely underestimating him.

Did Obama’s  latest church reprint Hamas propaganda like his old church?

  1. Hi Guys.
    Not related but this one is passing unseen.

    Sharia being ‘advocated’ in Houston ,Texas.

    Attorney Syed Izfar.Famous Community Attorney Anwar-e-Qadeer, who used to be Honorable Ramday’s student, introduced the Honorable Judge.“Sharia’a is kind of boogeyman in the western society. I do not know from where such fear is coming because the principles of justice and all the universal good values are part of the basics of laws made within Sharia’a. These are the same as the Ten Commandments given to Hadhrat Moses .No faith will ask people to commit crimes. Hmmm….The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers.


  2. MAINTAINING A REPUBLICAN FORM OF SECULAR DEMOCRACY IS A HEAVY BURDEN!!! This is what separates civilization from the barbarism and savagery of cancer of Islam. OK, I get it – count to ten and then use your brain.

    But wouldn’t you just love to punch him in the nose- just once, real hard? and then shake him and yell 2 inches from his face : “WTF ARE YOU DOING?!!!!!!!!”

  3. “He reached out to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and people of no faith at all in a statement about a holiday that is uniquely Christian.”

    Yes, a uniquely Christian holiday. Because the word “Easter” is taken from the bible. Along with the rabbits. And the eggs. And the celebration of spring.

    Nothing at all non-Christian and inclusive of others about that…

  6. This guy has provided more than enough ammunition for his defeat at the polls. Will Democrats renominate him? Will republicans have the courage to nominate a candidate representing the best in American political and cultural life? Will Bozo the clown get write in votes in California and elsewhere?

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
