The President's Weekly Address

It's a nice address, but theology is not the President's long suit: It's not accidental that Easter and Passover are celebrated at the same time of the year. Jesus was crucified at Passover, which is an important theological point in Christian theology.

Moreover, the President suggests that all Christians celebrate Easter on this Sunday. This is not true. While Catholic and Protestants accept the Gregorian calendar, eastern Christians use the Julian calendar, so the convergence of Easter on a single date among all Christians is a relatively rare event.
