The White House angrily lashed out Monday against renowned evangelical leader the Rev. Franklin Graham for questioning President Obama's birthplace.

Graham’s sin? The son of the Rev. Billy Graham questioned on ABC’s “This Week” why the president has refused to produce and show a copy of what Graham described as his birth certificate.

Obama, Graham said, "has some issues to deal with" when it comes to his birth certificate.

"It's unfortunate that a religious leader would use Easter Sunday to make preposterous" statements, White House press secretary Jay Carney responded Monday, according to The Hill.

In 2008 during Obama's campaign for president, he released a document known as a “Certification of Live Birth.” The document, which is not considered a birth certificate, indicated Obama was born in Hawaii.

But Obama has stubbornly refused to release his full Birth Certificate, detailing such information as the actual location in Hawaii he was born, the time of birth, and the attending physician.

He also claimed last year that Obama was born a Muslim.
