    Obama tweeted that "The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity." Obama then went on to misdefine the meaning of Easter by adding "On a day devoted to love, redemption, and renewal, we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka."

    Diamond and Silk correct Obama:

    "No Obama! They're called Christians not Easter Worshippers!"

    Obama never misses an opportunity to misrepresent Christianity and/or Christians.

    Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton tip anti-Christian ‘Easter worshippers’ hats

    Obama, Clinton tip anti-Christian 'Easter worshippers' hats

    Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton avoided using the word “Christians” while commenting on Twitter about the horrific attacks on — yes, let’s call it what it is, please — Christians on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka that left hundreds dead and injured.
    Instead, the ex-prez and former secretary of state called the victims “Easter worshippers.”
    That’s not just strange and unnatural. It’s a political calculation.



    Calling them “Easter worshippers” is a political ploy designed to tamp down realities of radical Islamic terror targeting of Christians and Christianity.
    But this is what those of the far left do. This is how Muslim apologists roll.

    For people who like to mock others as being "snowflakes," it is quite rich that those same people are easily offended.

    While I'm no fan of Obama, there's nothing wrong with what he wrote. It is common knowledge that Easter (or "Resurrection Day" as some insist) is the highest Christian holiday. A basic knowledge of English allows the reader to understand that "Easter worshippers" is simply designating the day of worship, such as "Sunday worshippers" or any other day of the week. Obama is clearly pointing out that Christians who were worshipping were attacked on their highest holiday.

    Obama followed up with a contrast between the hatred and malevolence of the attackers and some of the themes of Easter, which do indeed include "love, redemption, and renewal."

    It's obvious to everyone who is not trying to press an agenda.

    Yeah, this is really no big deal, what you'd expect from Obama. "Easter worshipers" sounds as if he went out of his way not to simply say "Christians" and be done with it.

    "Sun worshipers" were ancient Druids, so here Obama sounds a bit disrespectful. At least he didn't try to paraphrase the Bible, or refer to the "holy prophet Mohammed", can't help but getting an undercurrent of hostility to Christianity when he talks like that.

    "Easter Worshiper"?!? That's a bit awkward...

    Never been called that before or heard anyone else called that for that matter.

    I mean, I don't even think of it as worshiping Easter but rather celebrating Easter as a Christian, Christians celebrating on Easter, in fact, I don't worship any days, so it would be just as odd to call me a Sunday Worshiper. I worship Jesus and it would appear to me that someone who thought I was a worshiping a day doesn't really know what it is about...

    Why are you so obsessed with Hillary Clinton. I’ve never been a fan of Hillary Clinton, yet you assume that not thinking the worst of people is somehow an endorsement of Hillary’s Clinton.

    That’s twisted.

    Who is offended? Certainly not me.

    I find it humorous and pathetically obvious what is going on .

    What's even funnier is to watch people try to cover it up.

    Let's see, you, Barack, and Hillary use the made-up term Easter Worshippers. If my arithmetic is correct, that's three of you. As Diamond and Silk said, BB, "They're called Christians not Easter Worshippers!" You yourself are so politically correct that you tiptoe around Islam apparently. They're called Islamic Jihadi Psychopaths in case you were wondering. The deaths of Christians in Sri Lanka was not caused by unemployment, global warming, or mental illness but by the teachings of Muhammad in the Quran.

    That's telling it like it is.

    Well, that sure shed new light on Devil's Advocate. To compare the silly plight of safe-space seeking snowflake snivelers and their enablers to those standing up for bombed-out Christians in their churches is repulsive to the point of deserving prophetic condemnation.

    What obama and company have done is to minimize who was terrorized (Christians) in order not to further demonize those who committed the terror (muslims). That is not easily offended it is properly offended and the to add insult to injury some liberal shows up on this thread and defends that. Its despicable, outrageous, and an insult to those who were killed by evil. The defense of what obama and company did cannot be defended. Such an act is itself evil.

    Those paying closer attention noted that Hillary was quite specific over the New Zealand massacre, but went well out of her way to distance herself in this instance. Compare:

    “My heart breaks for New Zealand & the global Muslim community. We must continue to fight the perpetuation and normalization of Islamophobia and racism in all its forms. White supremacist terrorists must be condemned by leaders everywhere. Their murderous hatred must be stopped.”

    All she had to do was make a few edits and the result would have been laudable:

    My heart breaks for Sri Lanka & the global Christian community. We must continue to fight the perpetuation & normalization of Christophobia and racism in all its forms. Muslim supremacist terrorists must be condemned by leaders everywhere. Their murderous hatred must be stopped.


    Should we hold our breath while we await the correction?

    Easter worshipers could be another way of putting a label on "Christians".

    OK I'll even go further and say that its possible that President Obama chose his words in an attempt to deflate the situation by not using the offensive nomenclature "Christians" because it contains one of the titles of Jesus Christ.

    HOWEVER: We are not ashamed...

    Romans 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

    Obama is a devil. If he is not demonically controlled, I am a monkey. Maybe one day the fools who worship him will see it.
