STARNES: Biden Makes Easter Sunday a Transgender Holiday, Offending Millions of America's Catholics & Christians

"It’s evident the left is determined to undermine our religion and traditions. This isn’t just blatant disregard, it’s intentional."

The White House is under fire after declaring Easter Sunday as "Transgender Visibility Day." It is a direct attack on the holiest day in the Christian faith. 

The Biden Administration also failed to post a proclamation about Good Friday – and they banned children from decorating White House Easter Eggs with religious images.

As I wrote in my new book, "Twilight's Last Gleaming," I truly believe the Democrats hate Jesus Christ.

"I call upon all Americans to join us in lifting up the lives and voices of transgender people throughout our Nation and to work toward eliminating violence and discrimination based on gender identity," President Biden declared in the proclamation. "Today, we send a message to all transgender Americans: You are loved.You are heard. You are understood. You belong. You are America, and my entire Administration and I have your back."

The Trump campaign issued a blistering condemnation of President Biden's decision to turn Easter Sunday into a holiday honoring transgender people. The White House also drew fire over a decision to ban the children of National Guard members from creating Easter Eggs that included religious artwork. 
“It is appalling and insulting that Joe Biden’s White House prohibited children from submitting religious egg designs for their Easter Art Event, and declared Easter Sunday as ‘Trans Day of Visibility,'" Trump National Press Secretary Karoline Leavitt told The Todd Starnes Show.

"Sadly, these are just two more examples of the Biden Administration’s years-long assault on the Christian faith," she added.

"We call on Joe Biden’s failing campaign and White House to issue an apology to the millions of Catholics and Christians across America who believe tomorrow is for one celebration only — the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

House Speaker Mike Johnson also condemned the administration. 
"The Biden White House has betrayed the central tenet of Easter — which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Banning sacred truth and tradition—while at the same time proclaiming Easter Sunday as “Transgender Day”—is outrageous and abhorrent," Johnson said.

"This is why the American people are taking note."

As I wrote in "Twilight's Last Gleaming: Can America Be Saved?," the Democrats now worship at the altar of the LGBT religion and they pledge allegiance to the rainbow flag. 

"I have been saying for years that the LGBTQ movement is the religion of many in America," Dr. Paul Chappell, pastor of Lancaster Baptist Church in California, said.

"This declaration from the White House is a mockery to our Lord Jesus Christ. Every Christian should take note to witness with more fervency for our Savior and to live with integrity according to the Word of God. Let us worship the true and risen Christ today and every day,” the California pastor said. 

We are no doubt living in a nation where Christianity is under fierce attack. And the reason why is that freedom of religion is our foundational freedom. 

In “Twilight’s Last Gleaming” I contend that the ultimate enemy we are facing is Communism. And the Communists must eliminate and neutralize the churches in America before they can conquer the nation. 
That’s why there was such a massive backlash when former President Trump endorsed the “God Bless the USA Bible.” It wasn’t the Bible that triggered the Left. It was the president’s call for Americans to return back to God. 

"This Bible is a reminder that the biggest thing we have to bring back America and to make America great again is our religion," Trump said in a video message.

"Religion is so important. It's so missing. But it's going to come back and it's going to come back strong, just like our country is going to come back strong."

During my interview with President Trump for"Twilight's Last Gleaming: Can America Be Saved?,the president reiterated the importance of faith in our nation.
"Religion and Christianity are the biggest things missing from this country, and I truly believe that we need to bring them back and we have to bring them back fast," the president said in the video posted yesterday.

"I think it's one of the biggest problems we have. That's why our country is going haywire. We've lost religion in our country.

"All Americans need a Bible in their home and I have many. It's my favorite book. It's a lot of people's favorite book."

The president also urged Americans to return to the faith of our Founding Fathers. 

"Let's make America pray again," he declared. 

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R-MS) blasted the Biden White House, calling the proclamation "an intentional attempt to insult and mock Christians across America."

"Shocking - but not surprising," the governor said. "In Mississippi, we will proudly celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the forgiveness of sinners."

"This is a direct assault on Christianity," Rep. Diana Harshbarger (R-TN) said of Biden's proclamation. "It’s evident the left is determined to undermine our religion and traditions. This isn’t just blatant disregard, it’s intentional." 

And it is evil.
