Biden Denies Proclaiming Easter Sunday ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’ After Major Backlash – Doug Mainwaring 4/2/24


Following one horrific, offensive misstep after another — including banning children from submitting Easter eggs bearing “overtly” religious messages for the annual White House Easter Egg roll — President Joe Biden denied that he had proclaimed Easter Sunday to be “Transgender Day of Visibility” despite having issued a very public decree on Good Friday.

On Friday, March 29, the Biden White House declared March 31 to be “Transgender Day of Visibility” while not making any such auspicious declaration honoring that same day as Easter Sunday.

In short order, the move by Biden and his administration was widely condemned as a towering insult to Christians.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America, said it was a “scandalous proclamation” and associated it with a “Luciferian hatred of God.”

Former President Donald Trump’s campaign called it a “blasphemous declaration.”

“This is a direct assault on Christianity,” noted Republican U.S. Rep. Alex Mooney of West Virginia) on X. “Yet another attack on religion and traditions by this administration.”

Former GOP presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy, a Hindu, called it “a slap in the face to every American, whatever their faith.”

“The White House is deliberately pushing differing messages to its different language-speaking audiences,” End Wokeness noted on X.

“On the main English account, today they celebrated Transgender Day of Visibility. On the Spanish-language account, zero references to Trans Day of Visibility. Instead, it honored César Chávez Day.”…
