Posted on 04/25/2011 10:06:28 AM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!
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.
When the White House released statements about Muslim holidays, no attempts were made to include Christianity or to mention a spirit of inclusivity. For example, in his 2010 statement on Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha, Obama made no references to Christianity or any other religion.
By contrast, former President Bush traditionally included Scripture passages in his Easter messages and made a point to explain what Easter is about. Like Obama, though, he did not release statements marking Good Friday.

Why would Obama declare a Christian holiday when he’s a Muslim? As the other poster implied: Actions speak louder than words.
God has a sense of humor!
makes me sick....
He’s a muslim. No way he can acknowledge that Jesus died for us and was resurrected on Easter morning. No muslim believes that for a minute. He has no use for Christians. Enough said.
The President went to a Baptist church, where the minister trashed talk radio.
“By contrast, former President Bush traditionally included Scripture passages in his Easter messages and made a point to explain what Easter is about.”
But Dubya also started the practice of recognizing Muslim holidays while he was President. And promoted the phrase “religion of peace”.
I think the Obama’s went to the baptist church (was it on Easter Sunday or last week?) because his new chief of staff told him it was politically wise to do so. He was applauded when he entered the Church so it fed his ego enough to deal with not being in his 20 year loved radical, Rev. Wright Church
where, I understand, the "pastor" took off on a racist rant. It fits that a muslim, anti-American, illegal alien would find a local "church" where "whites" are held in contempt.
were there any white folks there in that service?
Muslims don’t celebrate the awesome resurrection of our beloved Savior, Jesus Christ, as we pray for and await His return. They are waiting for the 12th Imam to emerge from some well!
If they were, they were libtards with horribly guilty consciences for all the suffering that the white race has brought upon such victims of color.
...Actions speaking louder than words...
I wonder why (not).
Sick. But the WH is counting on the basic headline that he went to a baptist church. Obama was applauded upon arrival.
I don’t understand this.
After all, Obama keeps telling us he’s a devout Christian.
For secular progressive lurkers - there is NO WAY Obama is a Christian. He doesn’t act like it, talk like it, walk like it. Mouthing a few words about Jesus to the press once in a blue moon do not count. The only “churches” he’s ever gone to talk about race more than Jesus.
He’s not a Christian, and stop telling us we are too stupid to not realize it.
Beat me to posting that pic
Simply a little “In yo face!” Move on!
Meanwhile the WH is hard at work spinning that if the debt limit is not raised the sky will fall down and granny will be kicked.
No problem!!! Did you not know that Obama is a Muslim!!! And...a Quaddfi adorer also. Why do think that the killer of American innocents is still alive and well? Need proof, just ask Louie Farrakhan & Reverand Jeremiah Wright, both avid Quaddfi lovers!!! Oh, shucks, I forgot, Americans believe in the hope & change jive!!! Sorry, you just keep in living in Obama’s LaLa land!!!
From BHO’s book “Audacity of Hope”: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
The visited a Baptist church on Sunday... translation.....
they attended a photo op on Sunday
The “church” is a radical leftist anti-Israel black church with a Rev. Wright type pastor (although a little better spoken) that has frequently hosted anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian conferences. Sounds like Bambi was right in his element.
So Obama grabs the “I WENT TO A BAPTIST CHURCH” headline.The media leave out that the preacher preached racism on talk radio all awhile saying all those that dare call Obama a muslim are racist?
Insane Obama propaganda. It won’t work.
“In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful, Michelle and I send greetings to all those celebrating the joyful holiday of Easter...”
I’m shocked I tellz ya...
Just wait when the Imam climbs up out of that well and he looks like George Burns in a baseball cap (ala Oh God).
He is sending clear signals to the Muslim world that he is one of them
And helping Al Qaida rid Libya of Khadaddy is another way.
They are prparing to instill the Caliphate while Obambi is head of the USA.
If he looks to be losing the next election they will spead things up. If he wins it will be even worse, only one year later.

I saw that on Drudge. The White House was struck by lightening on Easter Sunday. LOL
Um...I don’t think so.
Yes, it unfortunately is.
My faith and my family are my most important comforts. I am increasingly worried about my country . . .
And after he did such a good job on his Passover statement, equating our (israelites’) freedom from the Pharoah’s Egypt with the current “freedom” of the Egyptians to be ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood, who’d kill us all in a New York minute...
“Actually, the proclamation is loud and clear”
That there or may - or may not - be a light under that dense pointy bushel?
I thought we Christians would at least get a lecture about tolerance, and about how Jesus would have voted for more infrastructure spending to help the poor
The sooner hussein can relegate Christ as a non entity, the closer we become to sharia.

Obama Declares June as LGBT Pride Month
June 1, 2009
LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH, 2009

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Loved that lighting zig zagging all around the White House on Easter Sunday evening. Remember the lighting when he showed up at an obscure cemetery for Memorial Day services rather than at Arlington, too, and Obummer had to run for his life? Dear God, I am praying for another lightning show real soon...and pray that third time is the charm if You get my drift.
“You can make a proclamation
Citing some Celestial voice.
If you choose not to proclaim
You still have made a choice...”

What has been done in the past?
