    Yes, it is deeply offensive especially when it comes from the lips of politicians who are scared witless of acknowledging that Christians are being persecuted and by Islamic terrorists.

    The people (men, women and children) who were murdered in various churches in Sri Lanka on Sunday were Christians. They were not worshipping Easter, which is a pagan and now secular event. They were rejoicing over the resurrection of Christ Jesus, not some pagan fertility goddess.

    Hillary Clinton tweeted this message: "I'm praying for everyone affected by today's horrific attacks on Easter worshippers and travellers in Sri Lanka."

    Easter worshippers? When the mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, were attacked and people shot down, did the politicians or liberal media talk of "Ramadan worshippers"? No, of course not! The victims were Muslims.

    Make no mistake, the majority of the victims of this terrorist attack were CHRISTIANS. They were not "Easter worshippers". Shame on all politicians and liberals who are too afraid to speak the truth because they don't want to give offence. Offend whom? Terrorists?

      Good points. For some reason, these politicians do not want anyone to know that Christians are under attack. Maybe it is similar to how they downplay any terrorist attacks because they fear causing a backlash against a certain group. That backlash rarely happens (and should not happen).

    We Christians aren't so easily offended, but it's definitely wrong. Easter was originally a pagan holiday for goddess worship and was only incorporated into Christianity because it was a day Christians could secretly worship without being killed for their religion. If you go to the roots, the term "Easter worshipers" implies that Christians are goddess worshipers. We worship Christ, not a goddess or holiday.

      Actually, more recent research shows Easter was not originally a pagan holiday. The Easter season was named for the month it was celebrated, and years ago that month was named after a goddess. It would be like saying "The Fourth of July was a celebration of Julius Caesar." Not related.

    Truth cannot be offended

  • No, What is offensive is not calling them Christians in the first place. If it had been moslems killed, you woundn't call them Ramadan worshippers, or if it were Jews you wouldn't call Passover worshippers. They didn't call them Christians so as to not offend the bloody moslems and their liberal apologists.

      HRC's response: 'In a tweet after the massacre of Muslims in New Zealand, she wrote that her heart broke for “the global Muslim community.”'

      BHO's response: 'Obama similarly wrote in his tweet about New Zealand that he was grieving with “the Muslim community”'

      They downplay any talk of Christians.

    When Hillary Clinton or Obama refuse to identify Christians as Christians, and prefer to use the term "Easter worshippers", then something is wrong.

    When Hillary Clinton or Obama refuse to identify the terrorist as motivated by Islam then something is wrong.
