“Devout Catholic” Joe Biden Never Mentioned Jesus in His Remarks Celebrating Easter

Joe Biden is supposedly a “devout Catholic” to hear it from Democrats and the liberal media. But Bide never once mentioned Jesus Christ during his Easter Sunday remarks, even though Jesus’ resurrection from the dead is the entire reason to celebrate Easter in the first place.

Writer Houston Keene noticed the omission:

Traditionally, the president gives an Easter address on that Sunday to commemorate the holiday and Jesus. Biden’s most recent predecessors, former President Barack Obama and former President Donald Trump, had each mentioned Jesus Christ in their messages.

Biden, however, broke this streak on Sunday in his remarks from the White House Blue Room balcony.

The president actually mentioned the “Easter Bunny” in his remarks, but left out the religious reason behind the holiday. Biden only mentioned any sort of “resurrection” once.

“Easter is a day of joy, when we celebrate resurrection and renewal,” said Biden. “But this year, we know many are still going without the familiar comforts of the season.”

In fact, Biden closed his brief statement with a plea to God to “take care of the Easter Bunny.”

Biden also released a special video message about Easter and didn’t mention Jesus in the video either.

Biden’s kicking Jesus to the curb on the day to celebrate His resurrection is no surprise given that the “devout Catholic” has already been an abortion activist as president. Indeed, more than half of all Republican Catholics and more than one third of all Catholics believe that Biden should not receive communion because of his radical pro-abortion position.

According to the new poll, 55 percent of Catholic Republicans and 11 percent of Catholic Democrats said Biden should not be allowed to receive communion because of his pro-abortion views.

Biden already has made abortion on demand a priority in his administration. Just two days after taking office, he celebrated the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that led to the unnecessary killing of more than 62 million unborn babies in abortions.

Days later, Biden got rid of the Mexico City Policy and restored tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which kills babies in abortions around the world and lobbies to legalize abortions in pro-life countries. Pro-life leaders warned that the money will be used to pressure countries in Africa and South America to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

Then, in March, he signed a COVID-19 relief bill that excludes the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs.

Now, he is urging Congress to pass the Equality Act, which would strip away conscience protections for pro-life medical workers and create a “right” to demand an abortion.

Last April, Biden went so far as to call the killing of unborn babies an “essential medical service” during the coronavirus pandemic.

Some bishops have said the president should not participate in the sacrament until he repents, while others say he should be allowed to receive the Eucharist.

Recently, Archbishop Joseph Naumann, who leads the U.S. Catholic bishops’ pro-life committee, said Biden is creating “a real problem for the church” by advocating aggressively for the killing of unborn babies while calling himself a devout Catholic.

Naumann said Biden’s pro-abortion actions are a “great evil” that “goes very much against fundamental Catholic moral teaching.” He lamented how Biden describes the killing of unborn babies in abortions as “health care.”
