Biden Administration Bans Religious Symbols for Easter Egg Roll

The Biden administration is dragging America further away from our Judeo-Christian roots by banning religious symbols for Easter art.

Over the weekend, Joe Biden and his administration made it clear that Easter, and its Christian significance, are taking a back seat. Not only did Biden and his Democratic team celebrate Trans Day of Visibility and Cesar Chavez Day on Easter, but they also banned any religious symbols or themes from being used during the decorating of eggs for the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll. 

The flyer for the art project, designated for children, clearly states under the restrictions portion, “The Submission must not include any religious symbols or overtly religious themes.”

In a world where the essence of Easter, a time to solemnly commemorate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross for humanity’s salvation, should be at the forefront of our national consciousness, it’s both bewildering and disheartening to witness the Biden administration’s apparent efforts to erase any symbols of this pivotal moment in the Christian faith. This act is nothing short of a blatant affront to the very foundations of Christianity, suggesting a deliberate assault on the faith by those wielding power at the highest echelons of our government.

It reveals an unsettling reality about the direction in which our leaders are steering this nation—a direction that starkly diverges from the Christian principles etched into the bedrock of America by our founding fathers. These were men who, despite their flaws, unequivocally recognized the indispensable role of divine providence and the natural rights endowed by our Creator, rights that are increasingly treated as anachronisms by the liberal elite.

As we tread further into 2024, it becomes ever more clear that the liberal agenda, now in full swing, regards these foundational Christian values and rights not as the cornerstone of American identity but as relics of a bygone era, inconvenient truths to be sidelined or silenced in pursuit of a secular, progressive utopia. The irony, of course, is that this utopia, in its relentless quest to dismantle traditional values, only serves to erode the moral and spiritual fabric that has held our nation together for centuries.

As we reflect on the ultimate sacrifice made by Jesus Christ for our redemption, let us also ponder the direction in which our country is headed. The exclusion of Christian symbols and the essence of Easter from public recognition is a symptom of a deeper, more insidious attempt to marginalize and dilute the Christian faith in America. It’s a clarion call for Christians across the nation to stand firm in their faith, to voice their dissent against the encroaching secularism that threatens to silence the message of hope and salvation that Easter embodies.

As followers of Christ and as citizens of a nation built upon the unshakeable foundation of Judeo-Christian principles, it is our duty, now more than ever, to assert the relevance and necessity of our faith in the public square. Let us not forget that the freedom to live out and express our beliefs was deemed paramount by those who laid the groundwork for this great nation. In the face of adversity, let our faith be the beacon that guides America back to its foundational truths.
