The War on Easter

Fox News got worked up yesterday because President Obama did not issue a proclamation for Easter.

President 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.

See, that proves he’s a Muslim. And so was every president going back to 1980: Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton didn’t issue Easter proclamations, either.
