“They’re Called Christians”: Conservatives Mock Obama, Clinton For Tweets About Sri Lankan ‘Easter Worshippers’

4014

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are being roundly criticized for their apparently coordinated decision not to use the word ‘Christian’ to describe the victims of the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka, which targeted three Catholic churches, among other targets. Some even speculated whether Obama’s and Clinton’s decision was intended to undermine the Christian faith in the US.

Instead of using the label “Christians”, Obama and Clinton referred to the victims of the attacks as “Easter Worshippers”, elicited ridicule from conservatives on Twitter.

The fact that three churches were targeted would suggest that Sri Lanka’s Christian minority was specifically targeted by the attackers.

Unsurprisingly, Obama and Clinton weren’t the only Democrats who artfully avoided the word “Christian”.

Offering a possible explanation, one Twitter wit argued that Obama and Clinton may have been correct to not specifically name Christians since Easter coincides with other holidays on the island (though he didn’t do himself any favors by referring to Sri Lanka by its British colonial name Ceylon).

Then again…

Regardless, we imagine we’ll be revisiting this in a few months when the annual ‘war on Christmas’ begins.

  1. Caleb & David: The churches may welcome all faiths but they are “Christian Churches.” Also, the celebration of our Lord’s Resurrection is a Christian celebration. True, several faiths have this time of the year as a special season in their faith BUT, why would they come to a “Christian Church” to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, in whom they do not believe? Your words are filled with fact but they do not hold up under simple logical examination. As for being a “Christmas Worshiper,” Caleb, with the modern concept of Christmas, I can see how you might be that but, if you are in a Christian Church, for that worship, an attack on that church would be an attack on a Christian Church and on the Christians in that church. Based on your arguments, I would then assume that you would be considered collateral damage. I wish you could truly get the meaning of the celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

  2. Obama and Hillary failed to back our national anthem, stand on the side of police , were afraid to offend the Muslims and would not call the terrorists radical Muslims while Obama set back race relations 100 years during his presidency while being the worst coward in the white house since jimmy carter and the only worship Obama did was to worship the stinky behinds of the rich and famous movie stars and his sports heroes while he stood behind them when they passed gas in his face and called it roses . Now this enemy to America can not even say the word Christian to acknowledge who was attacked . Shame on you Barrack you should hide out from public view now the way you hid out in the white house for 8 years .

  3. Yes the word Easter comes from the pagan April worship of the Saxon goddess Esotre. Of course Obama and Clinton would not say Christian worshippers. We need to pray for them.

  4. Some liberals are also Christians and some conservatives are not Christians. Please don’t put political lables on Christians, or any religon for that mater. The first amendment precludes government involvement in any religon. Individuals are free to practice the religon of their choice as long as the religion they practice does not impact on the civil/religous liberties of others. The obama’s and the clinton’s religon is primarily narcistic deceitfulness followed by a self-constructed system of values that can be found throughout the world just an Christainity, Islam, Budism, Hinduism and atheism are gound around the world. All should be independant of political influence,

  5. Easter commemorates the Jesus reappearing after his death. This is purely a Christian belief. Other things connected to Easter like the Easter bunny and colored eggs are imports of European pagan fertility cults. When Europeans became Christians some of them brought these ancient customs with them.

All religons except paganism should be independant of political influence.

  7. I was born in West Virginia in 1939…at grade school my teachers treated Robert Byrd as a “Conquering Hero.” For ten years of my childhood Byrd was the “Grand Cyclops” of the KKK. He went onto Washington politics and became the longest service Hypocrite in the Senate. Hillary Clinton called Byrd “Her Mentor” and during her failed election there were images in the media of her kissing the ASSHOLE…Bill Clinton eulogized the moron at his funeral…Obama was there too, kissing political ass as well…Growing up surrounded by KKK idiots I clearly remember my neighbors putting on their white hoods on a Saturday night to go out to kill a few “Niggers.” Then, I had to sit next to these Assholes in church on Sunday and pretend I did not know…And Hillary called Byrd “Her Mentor.” When you sleep with dogs you get fleas!

    • Robert Byrd was a KKK leader, that’s true. But the truth is that he renounced his former activities with the KKK and did a complete turnaround. Being raised in a certain environment will have a great impact on your beliefs as a young person. But age and experience sometimes teach us that we are dead wrong. This country as a whole has reversed its attitude on racism 180%. We abhor it, turn our backs on it, castigate those who say anything remotely racist, and use it as a bludgeon against political opponents. We need to stop persecuting people for things they said or did a half century ago! Enough is enough. That’s why this country has always had a statute of limitations. People can and do change.
      History is what it is. The things happened. If we try to erase all history that doesn’t conform to our “woke” attitudes, we will condemn ourselves to repeat it.

      Christians, of all people, understand this. We have the greatest example of all time…the apostle Paul. Formerly, a vehement hater of “the Way” which is what early Jewish Christians were called, he rounded up and delivered hundreds to be imprisoned, tortured and killed by the Jewish authorities. But an encounter with the risen Christ on the road to Damascus turned him completely around and he became the apostle to the Gentiles and the reason I’m writing this now, as well as every other Christian in Western Civilization. Without this man’s conversion, there would be no Christianity.

      Please stop with your ignorant insinuations. Nobody knows the mind of a person. All we can do is look at what they say and do. And since the early 1960’s, Robert Byrd has been an honorable member of a supposedly honorable body. Even the NAACP acknowledged his accomplishments in Civil rights legislation.
      Because of Byrd’s evolution on race and equality, the NAACP issued a statement praising him at the time of his death. “Senator Byrd came to consistently support the NAACP civil rights agenda, doing well on the NAACP Annual Civil Rights Report Card,” said Hilary O. Shelton, director of the NAACP Washington bureau and senior vice president for advocacy and policy. “He stood with us on many issues of crucial importance to our members from the reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act, the historic health care legislation of 2010 and his support for the Hate Crimes Prevention legislation.” That hardly sounds like a racist or KKK leader, now does it?
      The Christ told a confused teacher of Jewish law that “you must be born again.” The old passes away, behold the new. The “old” Robert Byrd was a KKK racist. But the reborn one worked hard for civil rights. Leave the man alone.

  8. As a Christian, I have my Lord —— Jesus Christ, while obama and the Clinton’s have their lord and I assure you it is not Jesus nor His Father, nor the Holy Spirit. Paul told the Ephesians “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Non Christians may think this weird but when we see all the craziness, how today evil is called good and good is called evil, how nothing makes sense in the political world, I can come to no other conclusion except to agree with Apostle Paul. What else could be the reason for not calling Islam out for what it truly is —- EVIL!

  9. I’m surprised obama and hillary didn’t call the victim’s “easter people”. Neither one of them has a clue what Christianity is about or what it means to be a Christian. Obama worships fame, fortune, and his pathetic imagined legacy. Hillary is consumed with her narsasistic, paranoid obsesion with power and arrogant idealism. Their remarks are irrelevant.

  10. It’s always sad to hear about any attack on any group by any means BUT Obama and Hillary have made a name for themselves over the years through these kinds of acts – sentiments maybe printed for good measure, but do they care? Never demonstrated that to me, ever!!!
    HOWEVER, what is REALLY good for humanity is to NEVER speak of these people again – don’t put these two in the news, comment on their political stances, analyze their comments – IGNORE these two as pointless to any human need, event or situation. PLEASE LET THESE 2 FADE AWAY!!!

  11. Hillary Clinton praying? No thanks, your prayers are to Satan, nobody wants that! You need to be praying for yourself you hypocrite! You have people killed HRC everyone knows that you are a criminal, nobody wants you! You will never, become POTUS so do us all a favor and have your demons help you jump off a cliff!

  12. So what are the odds of these two criminals coming up with the same ‘description’ of Christians on the same weekend at almost the same time. You know these low life scum talked to each other and agreed to not call them Christians!

  13. HRC your body, your mind, and your soul, are rotten! There is only one place for you, and George Soros, Obama, Tlaib, and Omar, in hell, with the rest of the Muslims! All of you are no good America Haters and the People should rid our Homeland of Democrats!
    Who needs Terrorists when we have the DNC in our Country! You people are evil, drug addicts, child murderers, kidnappers, child sex traders, for your sick-twisted secret societies and your galas! We know all about you dregs of society! The reason child sex slaves won’t go away is because of the DNC and Hollywood scum like De Niro! All you people are evil and twisted! Go away!

  14. HRC and BHO told a bunch of zombies in Benghazi “Don’t leave any witnesses” talking about (D) Chris Stevens and four, Security supporters! Now the two of them are sending condolences to Sri Lanka? My God! The hypocrisy by the Criminal Organization DNC is other-worldly! Nobody likes either of you, except maybe Soros, Holder, Kerry, and the rest of the America-Hating DNC! You got your money, so get the hell out of my Country!

  15. The Best Thing that President Trump can do for America is to rid America of George Soros, and his family! There must be stipulations concerning a dual Citizenship, and the anti-Christ-Soros, has done nothing but destructive measures and acts to destroy our Country! For that matter, The DNC is the same way! When a political Party knowingly supports an ineligible candidate for POTUS they become a Criminal Organization against the People!
    WE THE PEOPLE, run this Nation! BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE! Remember? The criminals over at the DNC think they know better than the people! They ignore the people! That is just unacceptable! That evil, traitorous entity mus be dissolved, there is no difference between the DNC and ISIS!

  16. GODS CHOSEN PEOPLE, THE ISRAELITES, are people that you don’t do harm to, and Christians are infused into the Jewish People, by Gods Mercy, through His Son, Jesus Christ! GOD IS ALIVE, SATAN KNOWS THIS BECAUSE GOD, KICKED SATAN OUT OF HEAVEN! The DNC Leaders are worshippers of Satan! So GOD, IS SUPERIOR! GOD, IS IN CONTROL, ONLY GOD, CONTROLS THE CLIMATE, GOD IS RESPONSIBLE FOR GLOBAL WARMING, YOU CAN LINE UP EVERY SINGLE WORLD RENOWNED SCIENTIST AND COMBINED, THEY CANT MAKE A HUMAN BEING, AN ANIMAL, A SOLAR SYSTEM! SO ANY NOTION OTHERWISE, IS A MAN MADE LIE!

  17. YOU, DNC SUPPORTERS, GET A HOLD OF YOURSELVES, YOUR MINDS ARE NOT PRODUCING LOGICAL THOUGHT! WE HAVE LAWS AGAINSZt TERMINATING A HUMAN BEING, YOU PEOPLE CHEER AT THE ABILITY TO MURDER HEPLESS INFANTS POST BIRTH! THAT IS BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION MURDER YOU ARE CHEERING FOR!
    WHO DOES THAT? ONLY THE AMERICAN, DNC!

  18. Their avoidance is a NECESSARY part of THEIR world view. They REFUSE (that is, don’t want) to acknowledge that CHRISTIANS are the MOST MURDERED sect in the world today — and just who are their antagonists (the Christians’) ??? The ‘ever loving (ha ha) Muslims. I hope the Western World wakes up, IT’S LATER THAN YOU THINK !!!
