Biden Leaves Christ Out of Christmas for Second Consecutive Year

Christmas

AMAC Exclusive – By Seamus Brennan

As Americans of faith have long recognized, the progressive left has always been eager to cast God, Christianity, and religious practice out of our public life—and there is perhaps no greater example of this disturbing trend than the perennial War on Christmas. For the second year in a row, Joe Biden has taken part in this time-honored tradition by delivering a speech at the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony devoid of any references to God, Jesus Christ, or the meaning of Christmas itself.

Like last year’s remarks—in which Biden reduced the miracle of Christ’s birth to a vague reference to a “beacon of hope”—the president’s 2022 Tree Lighting speech carefully avoided any mention of the religious significance of the event. Biden made multiple mentions of the so-called “holiday season,” before falling back on the left’s sterilized vocabulary of “unity and joy, hope and light,” eschewing the Christ-centric rhetoric historically invoked by many presidents during the annual ceremony.

Biden also doubled down on the “pro-democracy” gaslighting he initiated in his infamous September 1 speech at Independence Hall this year—nodding indistinctly to some of the left’s new favorite buzzwords like “our democracy,” “compassion,” and “unity”—but without any reference to Jesus or the biblical Christmas story.

Of course, this streak of leftists de-Christianizing Christian holidays is nothing new. On Easter Sunday in 2010, Barack Obama spoke of “the shared spirit of humanity that inhabits us all, Jews and Christians, Muslims and Hindus, believers and nonbelievers alike”—downplaying the day’s centrality to the Christian faith. In Obama’s 2014 Easter message, after briefly acknowledging the Christian origins of the holiday, he went on to describe Easter as being representative of a secular “universal mission” embracing a “common thread of humanity that connects us all.”

By contrast, each of Donald Trump’s presidential Christmas messages were full of explicit references to God. During his term in office, Trump’s remarks at the National Christmas Tree Lighting (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020) were delivered with a deep sense of reverence for the birth of Jesus Christ. “For Christians, this is a holy season: the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,” the former president said during the 2017 ceremony. “The Christmas Story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby Son, and the most extraordinary gift of all—the gift of God’s love for all of humanity. Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of His life forever changed the course of human history.”

In previous generations, believe it or not, God-centered rhetoric during the Christmas season was not exclusive to Republican presidents. President Franklin Roosevelt rightly saw Christmas as an occasion to “rejoice in the birth of Christ.” Bill Clinton appealed to the “birth of Jesus,” “His luminous teachings,” and “His timeless message of God’s enduring and unconditional love for each and every person.” Even Barack Obama—at least in the earlier years of his presidency—briefly spoke of Christ’s message, which in his words “lies at the heart of my Christian faith and that of millions of Americans.” He continued: “Christ’s birth made the angels rejoice and attracted shepherds and kings from afar. He was a manifestation of God’s love for us.”

Now, however, Joe Biden—a self-proclaimed “devout Catholic”—has failed to treat the day with the reverence it deserves.

Though most on the left are reluctant to admit it, the beauty of Christmas transcends any empty overtures to “peace,” “hope,” or “unity.” Rather, Christmas is the concrete celebration of a historical event that not only changed the course of human history, but also lies at the heart of the Christian faith. Biden’s failure to even nod to the religious significance of Christmas is a slap in the face to the millions of Americans who share faith in Christ.

In Quas Primas—a 1925 papal encyclical—Pope Pius XI wrote that most of the world’s problems could be reduced to the fact that citizens and world leaders alike “had thrust Jesus Christ and His holy law out of their lives” and their “politics.” He continued: “as long as individuals and states refused to submit to the rule of our Savior, there would be no really hopeful prospect of a lasting peace.”

If Joe Biden truly cares about spreading “peace” and “hope,” he might start with remarking publicly about the ultimate source of those two things – and at the request of millions of American Christians, put Christ back in Christmas.

To Seamus Brennan , Great article, I look at this matter of what the progressive left thinks about Christmas as an indication of just how wrong they are, and how they are lacking in spiritual understanding of life. That is another way of saying that those of us who believe in the goodness and wisdom of the teachings of Christ , we are fortunate . I am not advocating that contempt shown by the progressive left should be ignored , not by any means, it is an attack on what is good and honorable and goodness and honor should be defended accordingly.
I believe that Christmas represents thoughts and feelings that have to do with joyfulness and reverence , Christ taught the values that involve understanding , kindness, and fairness, add those things together and it provides a foundation for
peaceful relations between people. Great bit of writing you did Seamus, it is appreciated. In the spirit of everything that encourages good character, good citizenship, respect for law and the will of God, respect for life and freedom.

The man is bought and paid for by the CCP, are you really surprised? Both he and his masters are running from God, but they can’t hide; every chance they’ve got they reject God instead of accepting the real gift of Christmas. Soon enough they’ll get their wish and God will reject them, no matter how hotly they’ll then desire to make amends after it is too late and they’ll face what they created of their own free will when they rejected God, and God’s grace. Everything they worship is worthless in the hereafter, it remains as a useless stage prop on this mere stage for a drama intended solely to benefit the moral growth of our soul, that the knowledge of good and evil without the presence of God within us leads to death, that to choose, and to embrace God means life. From abortion, to war, to being soft on crime, to euthanasia they’ve made clear their choice; don’t be like them this Christmas, choose and celebrate life!

As I get older, more and more it’s in my mind that I will some day face Our Lord and give an account of my life and what I’ve done with it. No one will escape that day, no one…and those who’ve deliberately and with malice, sinned against God will stand before the Great White Judgement Throne of God…and their terror from that day will go on forever in hell.
Those who’ve done their best to live within His absolutely perfect guidelines will stand before the bema seat of Christ,…I far prefer that one. We all mess up, sometimes really bad, but we also have that privilege of asking forgiveness and to truly repent of our actions. I want to hate those who’ve deliberately caused the death of innocents, who’re destroying our nation, who’ve deliberately compromised the safety and security of America and will do anything and “remove” anyone who gets in the way of their self serving agendas, and it’s really hard not to feel burning anger and no doubt that’s going to be a given…but the picture of Christ suffering agony we can’t imagine, agony inflicted on Him by His own creation, talking to the Father…”Forgive them Father for they know not what they do”.
Our nation is slipping away, sadly we the people have let it, we’ve been too busy pursuing the American Dream, now turning into a nightmare.
Patrick Henry said it best: “When a nation forgets it’s God, tyrants soon forge it’s chains.”

I wish we would stop calling them the “progressive left” and just refer to them as what they are – Marxists. People who are confounded to find any logic in their policies and actions need only understand that they know they must first tear down our society to build the society they want. Once we view their actions from this perspective, we can understand their logic. They are either devoted arxists or (as Lenin described in his era) “useful idiots.”

What a travesty, and his party is going to try to get him re-elected! Better believe there is fraud in this political system if that ever happens. Wake up America and start writing letters to Washington to call Biden on all his ridiculous agenda!

The Forte and Specialty of this Administration is: of nearly everyone and everything past, present, and future; being censored, blacklisted, and undemocratic. Past: They fired, demonized, and blacklisted: President George Washington; (he apparently didn’t measure up to current underhanded practices), Thomas Jefferson: censored the major author of United States documents, didn’t walk on water, and probably many other flaws; (demonized by this administration, and his statue yanked out of New York City Hall), Teddy Roosevelt blacklisted for his statue with his horse and an American Native American on the back; (he also, had a definite personality), a variety of Civil War characters yanked out and off of the land; (both North & South were related to each other, so, you either have an politically correct relative or an ‘evil perpetrator’.) Present: Anathema of anathemas: President Trump; ah, yes, everything from taxes to unauthorized possession of ‘Top Secret’ documents, to claiming things that he is not allowed to claim to; (they are still working on his anathema of all anathemas list of vices and hidden monies), anybody who is labeled Republican is also, depicted as a racist, an anti-everything, and most despicable of the current population, anybody who thinks, reasons or expresses their opinion; most likely has their phone tapped, cars racing ahead of them, and their very own satellite. Future: They will be running out of people and animals to blacklist; however NEVER underestimate the ability of the Democratic/Socialist/Marxists. In the future it is possible that they will spread the rumor that elephants are spreading ‘Mad Elephant Disease’ from their trunks which will necessitate: ‘Elephant Trunk-Ectomies’, and very long intramuscular needles to inject vaccines for ‘MED’ or ‘Mad Elephant Disease’ vaccinations! Again, NEVER underestimate the ability of the democrats/ Marxists to scare the population to death. So, now it’s evident that Jesus is on their blacklist. This is going to be difficult for the Marxists as; Jesus Christ is stronger and more powerful than all of them! “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 ~ Merry Christmas & May God Bless These United States of America!

That’s ok God will leave him off his Christmas list.

A thought:
When someone breaks in you call 911. Then after you call you say oh “God ” please have them hurry. You hope they bring their gun and taser to protect you and your family and they get the *&%$@#!. Hmmm

My other observation is that people say “Oh God” I hoped I do not get a ticket or I pass that test
