Can you imagine the outrage if President Trump had called the attack on the mosque in New Zealand a sad day for “Ramadaan worshippers”?
He’d never hear the end of it.
Or even if it wasn’t just an attack on something so vital as faith. Imagine that a sitting member of Congress described the 9/11 attack as “some people did something” — oh, wait. A Democrat did do that and the response was “meh.”
Fortunately, the Media(D) found a way to criticize Trump for tweeting about the horrific attack on Christians attending church and tourists at hotels in Sri Lanka.
The good ol’ “Media Watchdog” at CNN, Brian “Helter” Stelter, has decided that he was going to call out the President on his erroneous tweet that was up for “more than 20 minutes” in the wake of the attack on Sri Lanka. (Check the timestamp on Trump’s tweet, by the way, it says 3:48 a.m.)

On his increasingly inappropriately named show, Reliable Sources, Stelter laments that it is incredibly embarrassing for a President to tweet out something with such a blatant error, and states that if someone is so wrong on the “little stuff” maybe we shouldn’t trust them on the big things.
This is the same dufus that was pushing a “Missing Melania” conspiracy theory, said that he took Michael Avenatti as a serious 2020 threat to President Trump, and pushed the phony “Trump-Russia collusion” schtick for 2 years because the Partisan Press is following the trail that Trump created.
Brian Stelter got all of those things wrong — and is doubling down on the collusion story. Why should we take him seriously?
But, for the sake of argument, let’s say that his concern for getting the “little stuff” wrong is legit. Would Stelter care to comment on the new rebranding of “Christians” as “Easter worshippers”?
It seems to be a coordinated attempt to dismiss the deliberate attack on Christians.
Last time I checked, Christians don’t worship Easter.
Many hours after Trump’s tweet, Barry and Hillary posted weird yet similarly worded tweets about the bombing of churches calling Christians “Easter worshippers.”
The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity. On a day devoted to love, redemption, and renewal, we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka.
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) April 21, 2019
On this holy weekend for many faiths, we must stand united against hatred and violence. I'm praying for everyone affected by today's horrific attacks on Easter worshippers and travelers in Sri Lanka.
— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) April 21, 2019
To contrast, here’s how they tweeted about the attack in New Zealand:
Michelle and I send our condolences to the people of New Zealand. We grieve with you and the Muslim community. All of us must stand against hatred in all its forms.
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) March 15, 2019
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.
— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 15, 2019
Huh. So they acknowledge the Muslim community, but not the Christian one.
It turns out that it wasn’t just them. The weird phrase “Easter worshippers” was used by Democrats all over Twitter.
It appears that there is some sort of allergy to the word “Christian” by Democrats, including most of the “big names” running to become President.
On a day of redemption and hope, the evil of these attacks on Easter worshippers and tourists in Sri Lanka is deeply saddening. My prayers today are with the dead and injured, and their families. May we find grace.
— Julián Castro (@JulianCastro) April 21, 2019
Such a horrific terror attack on Easter worshippers and tourists in Sri Lanka. My thoughts are with the victims of today’s attack. We must stand united against hate and violence.
— Rep. Dan Kildee (@RepDanKildee) April 21, 2019
I am deeply saddened over the horrific acts of violence against Easter worshippers and tourists in Sri Lanka. I send my deepest condolences to the victims and their families. We stand united with the people of Sri Lanka.
— Ami Bera, M.D. (@RepBera) April 21, 2019
Heartbreaking to learn about the attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka. Colorado stands with the people of Sri Lanka during this very tragic day and we grieve for those affected by these acts of violence.
— Jared Polis (@GovofCO) April 21, 2019
The horrific attacks on Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are heartbreaking. It fills me with sadness that an act of such hatred and violence took the lives of so many on the holiest of days. We have work to do so that every person, wherever they live, may worship in peace.

Eric Swalwell in a very odd tweet called Christians “Easter parishioners”:
— Eric Swalwell (@ericswalwell) April 22, 2019
Others didn’t use the phrase “Easter worshippers” but seemed to be equally allergic to the word “Christian”:
Easter is a reminder that there is hope and rebirth even in the darkest of times. We must remember that today, more than ever.
I am horrified by the attacks in Sri Lanka, where so many families were celebrating such a joyous day. Praying for the victims and their loved ones.
— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) April 21, 2019
My heart is with the families of those killed in the horrific attack in Sri Lanka. No one should fear violence when they come together in worship, anywhere in the world. https://t.co/h5mDRqhbo2
— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) April 21, 2019
Praying for the victims of the devastating attacks in Sri Lanka this Easter Sunday. On a day meant to celebrate tremendous love, faith, redemption and hope – these brutal attacks seek to undermine our faith in humanity. But terror will never win.
— Sen. Cory Booker (@SenBooker) April 21, 2019
Picking up on that “common humanity” idea, Bernie didn’t even mention Easter but did say “place of worship”:
Our hearts go out to the victims and families of the horrific attacks in Sri Lanka. No person should have to fear for their life in their place of worship. We must work to bring this world together around our common humanity.
— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) April 21, 2019
The killings in Sri Lanka shock us all. Near and far we have seen, many times now, rising terrorism against foreigners and against minorities in worship. America must help lead the world in resisting all such deadly hatred.
— Pete Buttigieg (@PeteButtigieg) April 21, 2019
At least Liz Warren mentioned the word “church” with her “Easter worshippers” comment:
I'm heartsick for the victims of today’s terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka. Hundreds have been killed and wounded. To slaughter worshippers at church during Easter service is an act of great evil. My thoughts and my prayers are with the victims and their loved ones.
— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) April 21, 2019
Amy Klobuchar didn’t use the word “Christians” directly, either:
My prayers on this Easter Sunday are for the families of those killed and wounded by terrorists in the horrendous massacres in churches and other places in Sri Lanka. Religious freedom is a human right that will never be defeated by hate. ✝️
— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) April 21, 2019
Even the Mayor of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada used the phrase “Easter worshippers”:
Deeply saddened to learn of the attacks on Easter worshippers and tourists in Sri Lanka. On this day of renewal, Winnipeggers thoughts and prayers are with all those affected in Sri Lanka, in our community and around the world. 🇱🇰 🇨🇦
— Mayor Brian Bowman (@Mayor_Bowman) April 21, 2019
ABC News also picked it up promoting an article about the closure of Notre Dame following the devastating fire last week.
— ABC News (@ABC) April 20, 2019
Beto is the only one who had the chutzpah to actually acknowledge that this was an attack on CHRISTIANS.
These acts of terror against Christians in Sri Lanka are unspeakably tragic. Our hearts are with the victims and their families. We owe them our commitment to making our world a place where no family lives in fear of persecution because of how they worship.
— Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) April 21, 2019
Although she didn’t mention Christians directly, Tulsi Gabbard did actually reference Jesus, which is nice… and then invokes the “Love Trumps Hate” sentiment:
My heart is with Sri Lanka on this #EasterSunday, w/hundreds killed & wounded in a horrific attack as they gathered in prayer. On a day devoted to love & peace, may we remember Jesus Christ’s message of love – for God & for each other – as we commit to defeating hate with love.
— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) April 21, 2019
But, it’s hard to ignore the blatant, seemingly coordinated effort to avoid the word “Christian” at all costs.
How do President Obama and Secretary Clinton both come up with Easter worshippers in their tweets about the murders in Sri Lanka? To have both of them use the same term the same day is strange. Is Easter Worshipper the left’s new way to avoid the word Christian? Pathetic
— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) April 22, 2019
Yes, yes it is pathetic.
It’s beyond that — it’s an outrage.
So, it really does matter that Barry, who joined the rest of the world in pushing Christian refugees to the back of the line for asylum claims, is ignoring the genocide of Christians. (President Trump reversed that, by the way.)
And I’m sure the “Unbiased” Media(D) Watchdogs like Helter Stelter are right on top of it calling the Dems out for ignoring the facts, right?
Yeah, I’m not going to hold my breath.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
