Last Sunday

Transgender Day of Visibility is observed annually on March 31. This year it happened to coincide with Easter. So when President Biden issued a proclamation in honor of TDOV, a number of conservatives spluttered that he'd hijacked the holiest Christian holiday just to show support for transgender people.

Some were so irate they practically accused Biden of sacrificing Jesus all over again.

The ruckus made me glad that I'm not a Christian. I belong to a Unitarian Universalist church whose spring festival for children and youth on Sunday was billed as "Celebrating Easter and Trans Day of Visibility." Activities included an Easter egg hunt and a drag queen story hour.

Conservatives are none too fond of Unitarian Universalists, either.
