RIP. Someone I am very close with is from there. Christians continue to be the most oppressed religious group around the world.

Rest In Peace to all those that were needlessly killed and prayers out for their families.

Rest In Peace brothers and sisters in Christ. He is risen and vengeance is His. Take comfort in that if nothing else. Prayers to families and friends of the murdered.

Apparently there was a memo sent out to Democrats, because Obama, Clinton and 6 other liberals used the term "Easter worshippers."

It was the lazy way to avoid saying the word "Christians."

Any word yet on if attackers were Buddhist or Muslim?

Tore my heart to read about the British family, Mother and Son, age 11, killed. Daughter missing. Father survived. The horror.

RIP.

I'm sure the attackers will be found out to be Amish extremists. The propaganda ministry is reporting them as "suicide bombers".

"Easter worshipers"... That's a good one. Notice in that message the first thing mentioned is to "stop the hate", and that there are "many faiths" involved in this weekend... That means that you Christians need to stop hating on the Amish responsible for this attack.

A Danish billionaire holidaying in Sri Lanka lost three of his four kids. What a nightmare.

Linked to radical Islamic terrorist group.

Disturbing:

Sri Lanka’s security forces were warned at least 10 days before the bombings that the group planned suicide attacks against churches, but apparently took no action against it, indicating a catastrophic intelligence failure. Top government officials say the warning never reached them.

Dems, including Hillary Clinton and FPOTUS Obama, are all referring to them as "Easter Worshippers."

Can't even call them Christians. I'm sure it's just a coincidence that they're all using the same verbiage.

How do you think this will play into the Indian elections going on now, which are heavy with hindu nationalist overtones? I'm sure it will help.

Seems the Easter Worshippers theme is common across the board from Foxnews to AP.. Who the hell decided that was correct, or event PC?
