White House Laughs Off Obama Not Giving Easter Proclamation

010.jpgPresident 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.

WH Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about this today and laughed ... "Haha, you know, the President went to church yesterday, it was well covered, I'm not sure if we put out a statement or not ... "

A surprised reporter noted that Easter was the holiest of Christian holidays and asked Carney "You don't KNOW if you put out a statement?" Carney snickered again, bowed his head and retorted, "I'm glad you're asking me these important question guys."



It's a pretty strange behaviour of such official people. I can't imagine why could they decide to act so strangely. Actually, I don't live in the US, I only watched on Euronews how president Obama was playing with children and a huge Easter Bunny on the lawn beside his residence. There wasn't said anything about the statement.
