The president spent the holiday weekend with his family at the retreat in Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains, as his administration came under fire over several controversial Easter celebration choices.

On Sunday, White House spokesman Andrew Bates doubled down on honoring Transgender Day of Visibility on Easter after sparking a firestorm of criticism from conservative lawmakers.

“As a Christian who celebrates Easter as a family, President Biden stands for bringing people together and defending the dignity and freedoms of all Americans,” Bates said.

‘Sadly, it is no surprise that politicians seek to divide and weaken our country with cruel, hateful and dishonest rhetoric. President Biden will never abuse his faith for political purposes or profit.”

March 31 has been designated to honor the transgender movement internationally since 2009. However, this year it coincides with the celebration of Holy Week.

Bates’ comments followed a statement released by President Joe Biden on Saturday.

“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. “, He said.

‘Today we send a message to all transgender Americans: you are loved. You are heard. You are understood. You belong. “You are America, and I and my entire administration stand behind you.”

Biden was the first US president to issue a formal proclamation recognizing the event in 2021.

With the holiday coinciding with Easter during its 15th year, Biden’s comments drew criticism from conservatives, including former President Donald Trump.

Trump’s national press secretary, Karoline Leavitt, criticized the proclamation as “appalling and insulting.”

He claimed the president’s announcement was evidence of the Biden administration’s “years-long attack on the Christian faith.”

Aside from those in the political sphere, some pop culture figures also spoke.

Reality star Caitlyn Jenner wrote: “I am absolutely disgusted that Joe Biden, a self-proclaimed devout Catholic, declared the Most Holy Day of Holiness as Transgender Day of Visibility.” The only thing you should declare on this day is ‘HE is risen’.

Jenner came out as transgender in 2015 and underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2017.

The White House also received backlash for the decision to ban religious images on shipments of children of military families participating in the traditional Easter egg roll event, as critics called the move an “attack on Christianity”.

Conservative policy researcher Jeremy Carl tweeted that this shows that the president and Democrats “hate America’s heritage… and prove it again and again.”

“The war on Christianity continues,” said another critic, while others noted, “We need to remind the White House that Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

As they were led away, heads began to turn as a chant could be heard: “Free Palestine, free!”
