Gov Kathy Hochul Will Light Up NY Landmarks, One World Trade Center, in Transgender Flag Colors on Easter

On the Christian calendar, this Sunday is Easter, a revered Holy Day for Christians celebrating the resurrection of their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ when his tomb was found empty, three days after his execution by crucifixion commanded by the Roman Empire. Even in secular society, the day is celebrated with colored eggs and baskets filled with strange plastic grass and bunny-shaped chocolate confections, and the iconic, American candy gems known as jellybeans. Easter Sunday is not only an extremely significant Christian holiday, it is also a family-oriented tradition. 

President Joe Biden, a proclaimed Catholic (being raised Catholic myself, I’ll take issue with that claim on account of his failing to be pro-life) has already stripped the most attended public event at the the White House, with festivities to be held on April 1, of religious meaning. 

This year, the Biden administration is hosting an egg-decorating contest among the children of National Guard members. The rules for the contest state that the children must not use,” any questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements.” 

But the anti-religious tones only grew louder when Biden issued his Special Proclamation for Sunday… and it wasn’t about Easter, at all. Instead, it was about Transgender Visibility Day, which became recognized in 2009 and has since been placed on March 31. (Easter started about 2,000 years ago, but who’s counting in the Biden White House?) 

Issuing the Transgender Proclamation coinciding with Easter has caused a major backlash from Evangelicals and other Christians toward the Biden administration, as well as from former President Donald Trump. The presumptive GOP presidential nominee called on Biden and the White House to issue an apology to Catholics and Christians, calling it “appalling” and “an assault on the Christian faith.”

Now, Democrat New York Governor Kathy Hochul, not satisfied by the embarrassing headlines and videos that circulated after being asked to leave a fallen NYPD officer’s wake on Friday, has declared that her state will observe the transgender day on Easter, too. 

In a statement, Hochul said,

Today we celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility by acknowledging the contributions that members of the transgender community have made in New York State and across the country. I am proud of the strength transgender New Yorkers display every day and want to make one thing clear: You are always welcome in New York. You are loved.

Throughout her own proclamation issued declaring Sunday as “International Transgender Visibility Day,”  Hochul refers to the trans community by using the acronym ‘TGNCNB’ which the document defines as “transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary.” 

Hochul also announced that New York on Sunday would be lighting up many famous landmarks in the transgender flag colors of pink, blue, and white. Some of the famed landmarks include:

  •  One World Trade Center in NYC (formerly known as the Freedom Tower) was built on the site of the original World Trade Center towers destroyed during the September 11, 2001, attacks, 
  • Niagara Falls, a natural wonder and tourist attraction located on the border of the United States and Canada, 
  • Empire State Plaza in Albany, New York, which is known for its modernist architecture. 

Conservatives and Christians may find comfort in knowing that in foreign nations, many of which are not socially progressive, transgender flags will not be flown above U.S. embassies. A provision passed last week in the spending package prevents this. Although President Biden has expressed an intention to repeal this provision, for the time being, Americans are not offending Easter worshipers in other nations by raising flags celebrating transgender lifestyles on a Holy Day.
