NBA star offers theory for why Biden is pushing transgender holiday on Easter

via TBN

The White House designating March 31 as Transgender Visibility Day sparked backlash as it fell on Easter Sunday.

While Jonathan Isaac initially criticized the timing as promoting division, he later acknowledged the Biden administration had declared that date annually and it just coincided with Easter.

However, others argued the White House should have removed the designation this year to avoid offending over two billion Christians.

“On Transgender Day of Visibility, we honor the extraordinary courage and contributions of transgender Americans and reaffirm our Nation’s commitment to forming a more perfect Union — where all people are created equal and treated equally throughout their lives,” the White House stated.

“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,” it added. “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.”

Even though calendars were available, declaring the event knowing it could fall on Easter was seen as insulting.

Isaac gave the administration “the benefit of the doubt” but still took issue with its ban on religious symbols in an Easter art contest, recognizing the offense caused to Christianity.

Isaac has made headlines for refusing COVID vaccines and kneeling during the anthem, but sought to keep the discussion focused on the meaning of Resurrection Sunday.

“They want you to hate! This helps no one and only promotes division,” Isaac wrote. “They know exactly what they are doing.. we should be angry but shouldn’t lose the spirit of what tomorrow means! Don’t lose focus. Because He is risen, there is hope for all.”

“Instead of deleting the tweet like it never happened this is my good faith retraction lol,” Isaac wrote on X.

“The message is the same. Keep focused on what Resurrection Sunday Is all about. Christ defeating sin and death for all people who would believe.”
