President Joe Biden garnered outrage from some Christians this week 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.”Biden faces criticism for not saying Jesus in Christmas address | Politics News
