White House Nixes Religious Designs On Easter Eggs


Each year at this time, the White House hosts a "Celebrating National Guard Families" art event in which service members’ children decorate Easter eggs in the lead up to the famous Easter Egg Roll. But this year something was different. There was an added stipulation regarding designs the kids were allowed to put on the eggs. The National Guard offspring were explicitly prohibited from submitting religious Easter egg designs. (Can’t have “religious” and “Easter” together! That’d be silly!)

The flyer for the contest stated that an Easter egg design submission "must not include any questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements." See how they equated “questionable content,” “religious symbols” or themes, and “partisan political statements?” The truth is, this hyper-secular White House doesn’t want religious symbols on eggs because they think they are partisan political statements, since they know most Christians-- and an increasing number of Muslims—vote Republican.

What’s next? Will the Biden administration decree that Memorial Day observances are fine…as long as they are not accompanied by American flags? Or that we can still celebrate July Fourth, of course, but not with fireworks-- or by having red, white, and blue themes?

Oh well, here’s looking forward to next year’s “Holiday Egg Roll.”
