Alabama's politicos came out swinging after President Joe Biden proclaimed on Friday that the official "transgender day of visibility" would fall on March 31, Easter Sunday.

The announcement came simultaneously that the annual practice of youth from National Guard families designing Easter eggs "must not include any questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements."   

Both announcements drew the condemnation of politicians and commentators on social media. Others observed that the Biden administration issued identical proclamations on March 31 for his entire presidency, and this year, it coincidentally landed on Easter.

U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) repeated his now-famous phrase to describe Democrats, calling them a "Satanic cult."

U.S. Rep. Dale Strong (R-Huntsville) also joined the fray, saying the Biden administration owed people an apology.

U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) chimed in, calling the move an "assault on Christianity in America."

U.S. Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) echoed Moore, accusing the Biden administration of stripping the "most Holy day" from Christians.

In state politics, Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth also voiced his opinion, calling on a restoration of "sanity to the White House."
