President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden released a video on Easter in which the president said that Americans need to get the coronavirus vaccination, saying it is a “moral obligation.”
The Easter video released on the president’s official Twitter account did not mention Jesus.
“We share the sentiments of Pope Francis, who has said that getting vaccinated is a moral obligation, one that can save your life and the lives of others,” said Biden. “By getting vaccinated and encouraging your congregations and your communities to get vaccinated, we not only can beat this virus, we can also hasten the day when we can celebrate the holidays together.”
“As we celebrate this most holy day, we know many are still going without familiar comforts of the season,” continued Biden. “The virus is not gone, and so many of us still feel the longing and loneliness of distance. For a second year, most will be apart from their families, friends, the full congregations that fill us with joy.”
