This year Easter Sunday fell on the same date as the day that is used to recognise transgender people and raise awareness

Commentator Lauren Chen has hit out at the US President Joe Biden for "minimising" Easter in favour of Transgender Visibility Day.

This year due to a quirk caused by the spring equinox, Easter Sunday fell on the same date as the day that is used to recognise transgender people and raise awareness.

Speaking to Patrick Christys on GBN America, Chen said: "There is this whole debate in the US at the moment because the Biden administration came out quite forcefully to recognise Transgender Day of Visibility. This past weekend was Easter Sunday.

The most important day for Christians of the year. The White House did have their usual Easter egg hunt but it seemed on social media at the very least, that the focus was definitely on Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Even when it came to the Easter egg hunt it seems like the White House was trying to portray the secular version of Easter.

"Where we just talk about eggs and the Easter Bunny and we minimize any relation to Christianity, and certainly to Jesus Christ, there has even been reports that people at the White House were told to keep the religious symbolism down.

"If not, get rid of it entirely when it comes to things like decorating Easter eggs. So a lot of Christians are feeling like this is a slap in the face."
