Free advice for Obama's religiously-illiterate White House

President Obama and his sycophant media have declared in the past his devotion to God, as a Christian. Trouble is, we don't see much evidence of that.

He and his family attended Rev. Jeremiah Wright's black liberation theology church for more than 20 years, but abandoned both Wright and the church when they became political liabilities. Although he spoke openly of "finding a new church" in Washington, DC, the President has been far too busy golfing to attend worship services regularly.

Since being elected, it has been Obama's standard practice to issue statements recognizing every major Muslim holiday. That's why his failure to acknowledge Good Friday or Easter seems so significant: most Christians would say Easter is the most important religious holiday of the year. In fairness, Obama did issue a statement for Easter 2010. But it was widely criticized, because it was so watered-down that it included references to every other world religion, and even non-religious people. The full text of his wishy-washy Easter 2010 "Family of Man" statement is here.

Fox Nation notes the glaring omission here, pointing out, "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."

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney deflects media questions about the lack of an official statement recognizing the Easter holiday:

Carney probably has no idea that most evangelical Christians would consider Shiloh Baptist Church an apostate congregation. The pastor, Rev. Dr. Wallace Charles Smith, seems fixated on all things racial, and has compared Rush Limbaugh to the KKK. The Blaze offers more here.

Free advice for Obama's religiously-illiterate White House crew: Mocking Christianity and Christians probably isn't the smart play here.
