Editor’s Note: Rules banning religious symbols pre-date the Biden administration.

The Biden administration has banned religious symbols and themes from its 2024 White House Easter egg design contest for children, stating submissions cannot include “religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements.”

This comes as Biden declared Easter Sunday 2022 as “Transgender Day of Visibility” in his proclamation.

Critics argued Biden is trying to remove God from Easter and replace it with worship of the transgender flag.

“Selected designs representing the unique experience and stories of National Guard children will be brought to life on real hen eggs by talented egg artists from across the country and displayed at the White House this Easter and Passover season,” the flyer reads.

The submission may not include “any questionable content” such as “religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements,” it states.

“Transgender Americans are part of the fabric of our Nation. Whether serving their communities or in the military, raising families or running businesses, they help America thrive. They deserve, and are entitled to, the same rights and freedoms as every other American, including the most fundamental freedom to be their true selves. But extremists are proposing hundreds of hateful laws that target and terrify transgender kids and their families — silencing teachers; banning books; and even threatening parents, doctors, and nurses with prison for helping parents get care for their children,” Biden stated.

“These bills attack our most basic American values: the freedom to be yourself, the freedom to make your own health care decisions, and even the right to raise your own child. It is no surprise that the bullying and discrimination that transgender Americans face is worsening our Nation’s mental health crisis, leading half of transgender youth to consider suicide in the past year.”

“At the same time, an epidemic of violence against transgender women and girls, especially women and girls of color, continues to take too many lives. Let me be clear: All of these attacks are un-American and must end. No one should have to be brave just to be themselves,” he said.

“NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024, as Transgender Day of Visibility. 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.”

The White House betrayal of Easter’s central message of Jesus’ resurrection prompted responses that the administration wants people worshiping the transgender flag instead of God.

Others saw it as outrageous and abhorrent. The erasure of Easter’s true meaning warrants reminding that Easter celebrates Jesus, sent to redeem mankind, rising from the dead as the Gospel of Matthew recounts.

“Biden is banning religious symbols from Easter celebrations at the White House, while flying the trans flag and declaring Easter Sunday to be ‘Trans Visibility Day,’” Donald Trump Jr. said.

“This is the left’s new religion. They want people worshiping the trans flag instead of God. They must be stopped,” he added.

“The Biden White House has betrayed the central tenet of Easter — which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said.

“Banning sacred truth and tradition—while at the same time proclaiming Easter Sunday as “Transgender Day”—is outrageous and abhorrent. This is why the American people are taking note,” he said.
