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.Now, he did "celebrate" Easter by taking the family to a church, but I don't think church going every once in awhile qualifies one as a Christian. Especially when church attendance is done for purely political reasons.
Barrack Obama has faith in one thing: the overwhelming awesomeness of Barrack Obama.
Thanks to Kenny.
UPDATE: Apparently either JHVH or Zeus is pretty pissed about this.
