Obama Issued Proclamations for Ramadan, Eid al Fitr, Eid al Adha, Hajj and Earth Day--But Not Easter Tuesday, April 26, 2011 By Fred Lucas
Washington (CNSNews.com) The White House updated its response to questions Monday to explain why the president did not put out a formal proclamation for Easter--after putting out proclamations for Muslim holidays and Earth Day.
Obama attended Shiloh Baptist Church in Washington on Easter Sunday and held a White House prayer breakfast last Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney pointed out.
On Friday, the President Barack Obama issued a proclamation on Earth Day. However, two days later, he did not issue such a proclamation for Easter, despite having issued similar proclamations for other religious holidays. During 2010, the White House released proclamations on Muslim holidays Ramadan, Eid-al-Fitr , Hajj, and Eid-al-Adha . The president also issued a statement on the Jewish holiday Hanukah. Also, Obama and first lady Michelle Obama wished the public a Merry Christmas on Dec. 25, 2010, in a video message.
Carney added the following written statement at the top of the transcript for the Monday press briefing.
Last Tuesday, the President delivered remarks about Easter at an Easter breakfast he hosted in the East Room. The transcript of the Presidents remarks can be found HERE, linking to the transcript of the event.
Before that, Carney fielded questions about why Obama did not issue a proclamation about Easter.
One reporter asked, You guys traditionally put out statements or proclamations on various religious holidays and I dont think I saw one from the president on Easter yesterday and was just wondering if theres any reason one didnt go out.
Carney responded, You know, the President went to the church yesterday; it was well covered. Im not sure if we put out a statement or not, but he obviously personally celebrated Easter with his family and went to church to celebrate that, and--
Another reported interjected, Wait a minute. The highest Christian holiday and you dont know if he put out a statement?
Carney responded, Im glad youre asking these key important questions, guys. The fact is, the president took his family to church in a very high-profile way to celebrate Easter. I think it was highly visible to most Americans. And he -- as a devoted Christian, he believes its a very important holiday for him personally, for his family and for Christians around the country.
It was at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast last Tuesday that Carney mentioned where Obama said, I wanted to host this breakfast for a simple reason--because as busy as we are, as many tasks as pile up, during this season, we are reminded that theres something about the resurrection--something about the resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ, that puts everything else in perspective.
Muzzies do NOT observe Easter.
I’m amazed that anyone is surprised about this.
I don’t get it. The article doesn’t seem to back up the title.
It will be good to get this Muslim homosexual crackhead Communist out of office.
The only question is....when?
I guess the Greatest Orator of ALL Times was off his Teleprompter when he said that. "Something about the resurrection"? Gosh, you think, Barry? You can't articulate what the Savior of the World is beyond a hollywood soundbite?
No muslim will give Jesus any sense of honor because they don’t believe that Jesus was tortured, crucified, died, nor arose. This illegal alien will not ever honor Jesus with any kind of proclamation. He and his wife will, however, read out of bunny and chickie books for the kiddies. Pathetic!
Obama is a Muslim.
He is facilitating CALIPHATE... on purpose.
So I guess all we have to do is change the name to Eid al Easter, and it’ll get White House recognition?
Yes it does. The article is clear. Obama did not issue a Presidential proclamation for Easter. It is the most important Christian holiday and it was deliberately ignored by Obama. His attendance at a Christian church is a sham - not unlike Clinton going to church on Easter Sunday carrying a Bible and then going to the White House that same day to be serviced by Monica Lewinsky. Obama knows that he cannot openly repudiate Christianity, so he marginalizes it by giving it a lesser status than other religions.
>Muzzies do NOT observe Easter.
True. On the other hand, they don’t go to Christian Churches either.
I’m no theologican, but I doubt that a actual Muslim would go to a Christian Church, even for appearances.
Why no Easter proclamation from POTUS Obama??? Simple, he (Obama) is a Muslim and....Muslims do not celebrate or believe in Christianity!!! Wonder when the American people are going to wake up & wise up to this America hater and destroyer of both the USA and our freedom!!! I’ll tell you who Obama worships, Farrakhan, Wright , Kaddafi, etc.!!!
What the hell is Eid al Fitr or Eid al Adha?
...and will that muslim usurper have destroyed the US by then?
As we speak, no one has the stones to shut him down.
The FACT that Ozombie is a MOSLEM can not be denied now.
What gets me, is how BOTH political parties fall into line over letting this usurper run this country. Why a marxist, why a muzzie, WHY???????
Since Muzzies believe that lying to “the Infidel” is quite acceptable, Present Stroker showing up at a Christian Church would be excused.
Then again, it seems that some of the “churches” that he has been a member of are hardly true Christian Churches.
Honestly, there is nothing about the narcissistic little Marxist bastard that could be called genuine or real.
Just a guess, but I’d say probably mid July.
