The Easter Egg Art Contest is part of the White House’s annual Easter traditions.

But this year, no religious-themed eggs are allowed. Even though Easter is largely a religious holiday.

That’s right, nothing about faith – for EASTER!

Wicked Easter?

Fox news reported“National Guard children are prohibited from submitting religious Easter egg designs for the 2024 White House ‘Celebrating National Guard Families’ art event.”

“The art contest is part of the White House’s Easter traditions, including the annual Easter Egg Roll,” according to Fox News. “The flyer for the contest states that an Easter egg design entry ‘must not contain questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements.’

The story continued:

“As part of the White House Easter traditions, America’s egg farmers – for nearly 50 years – proudly presented an intricately decorated commemorative Easter egg to the First Lady of the United States. In 2021, the White House expanded this long-standing tradition by displaying youth-designed Easter eggs in the East Colonnade of the White House,” the flyer explains.

“On behalf of First Lady Jill Biden, the Adjutants General of the National Guard are asking youth from National Guard families in the United States and all U.S. Territories to submit artwork inspired by the theme ‘Celebrating Our Military Families’” , the flyer continues.

Children are asked to design eggs with images based on their own lives. “Selected designs representing the unique experiences and stories of National Guard children will be brought to life on real chicken eggs by talented egg artists from across the country and displayed at the White House during Easter and Passover,” the flyer said.

Not the only themes that are prohibited

There is also a whole list of other bans.

“Children must also not promote material in their designs that ‘promotes bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against any group or individual or promotes discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age’,” according to Fox News. reported.

Of course, you don’t want to be involved in a lot of those things.

But do they have to preach such left-wing preaching about it?

The idea of ​​freedom of religion and speech, both protected by our First Amendment, is to allow many religions and ideas to flourish, not to eradicate them.

Having an easter egg art content that bans religious themes is not only absurd – the entire reason the holiday exists is to celebrate what Christians believe is the resurrection of Jesus Christ after he was crucified – it is an insult to American ideal of freedom of religion itself.

Perhaps other residents of the White House will come next Easter.
