President Joe Biden gave his Easter address to the nation over the weekend but forgot one important person surrounding the holiest day in Christianity. Jesus.
Instead, Biden urged Americans to get vaccinated from Covid-19. THe President and First Lady Jill Biden also talked about the economy and businesses. While the first couple did mention it being “Holy week” they focused on Covid 7 times and said it was a “moral” obligation to get vaccinated.
“Jill and I want to send you our warmest Easter greetings to you and your family. As we celebrate this holiest day, we know many are still going without familiar comforts of the season,” Biden said in a video posted on his Twitter account Sunday. “The virus is not gone and so many of us still feel the longing and the loneliness of distance. For a second year, most will be apart from their families, their friends, full congregations that fill us with joy.”
“Today, as spring returns, we see hope all around us.” added Jill Biden, noting that “more and more Americans are getting life-saving vaccines.”
As he neared the end of the scripted message, which both read from a teleprompter, he emphasized that “getting vaccinated is a moral obligation, one that can save your life and the lives of others.”

“By getting vaccinated and encouraging your congregations and your communities to get vaccinated, we not only can beat this virus, we can also haste the day when we can celebrate the holidays together,” he said
Biden, who has described himself as a deeply committed Catholic, has been criticized even by his priests for his unwavering support of abortion until birth.
His Easter faux pas joins that of Georgia Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock who tweeted an Easter message that dismissed the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and the resurrection – the whole purpose of Easter. Warnock deleted the tweet after people began demanding he stop calling himself a Christian “reverend.”
