Joe who won as president elect in the just concluded polls after quashing Trump with an overwhelming majority votes and that of electoral college votes expressed his interest in making a difference and embracing the light of hope in other religions across the United States.
He reminded Americans that Diwali is ultimately a reminder of lights that burns without being put under cover which shines within everyone to hope and dream as well as make a difference in all aspects of life endeavours.
However, this doesn't mean that the president elect is not a Christian for celebrating with the other religions in the US but a way of identifying with the people in order to create a harmonized community of people in the states. Biden is a Christian and a Catholic to be specific. So, don't get it twisted that he's not a Christian. Perhaps, what you heard or have read about Biden as regards his religious belief on social media platforms.
See his post below;
"On behalf of our families, we wish a happy Diwali to Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Buddhists, and everyone celebrating the festival of lights across the United States, India, and the world."
He added that "Diwali is ultimately a reminder of the light that’s within us all to hope and dream, and to overcome our differences and keep the faith in each other. That’s the light we see shining on this day and that will guide us through the darkness with knowledge, science, truth, unity, and compassion."
"We look forward to celebrating Diwali at the White House next year — in person, together with you, and in a nation healed and united."
