Christians criticize President Biden for not saying ‘Jesus’ in Christmas address

President Joe Biden was subject to criticism for not using the name of Jesus Christ in his Christmas address. The president did refer to the story concerning Jesus’ birth but did not use the name of Jesus during his address. While delivering the Christmas message, Biden referred to Jesus as the “child Christians believe to be the son of God.”

The Christian Post reports:

President Joe Biden garnered outrage from some Christians for not mentioning Jesus Christ during his Christmas message, though he did reference the Gospel story of Jesus’ birth.

Biden delivered a Christmas message on Thursday, referring to Jesus at one point as the “child Christians believe to be the son of God,” saying that it has a universal significance.

“Yes, even after 2,000 years, Christmas still has the power to lift us up, to bring us together, to change lives, to change the world. The Christmas story is at the heart of the Christian faith. But the message of hope, love, peace, and joy, they’re also universal,” Biden said.

“It speaks to all of us, whether we’re Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, or any other faith, or no faith at all. It speaks to all of us as human beings who are here on this Earth to care for one another, to look out for one another, to love one another.”

Christian journalist and author Todd Starnes condemned Biden for not using Jesus’s name in a Twitter post. Kara Fredrick from The Heritage Foundation also criticized the exclusion of Jesus’s name. During the Fox News show “Outnumbered,” she said that it highlights “America’s lost its sense of God.”

Christian commentator Todd Starnes denounced the omission of Jesus’ name from the speech, expressing his discontent in a post on Twitter.

“President Biden failed to mention the name of Jesus during his Christmas message to the nation. He mentioned the Muslims, but he failed to name the Reason for the Season. Nothing triggers the Left like the name above all names,” tweeted Starnes.

Kara Frederick of the conservative think-tank The Heritage Foundation also took issue with the omission during a segment on Fox News’ daytime show “Outnumbered,” saying that it showed “America’s lost its sense of God.”

“I think this is just a manifestation, this speech not mentioning Christ, talking about how divided this nation’s been for so long, it’s all part and parcel of the secularization of America and we need to return to our faith,” she said. “That’s the only way society is going to work going forward, and it’s made us a city on a hill. We need to reclaim that. We need to reclaim our founding principles, period.”
