    1984 newspeak lives on.

    Remember when the left laughed at Bush’s war on terror? The abstract noun? Now “hate” is an actor.

    It is simply the Helpful Way to describe what happened.

    To say ‘Christians’ may be truthful journalism, but not Helpful Journalism.

    Cheerful Squalor is the way the media prefer it.

    Comrades.

    Remember too that these are the people that will s*** their pants if you use the wrong pronoun for a transgender person but hey don’t you dare call Christians by their own self designation. What would they have said if the targets had been Jews?

  6. It is also an (intentionally) historically ignorant sledge to delegitimise Christianity and bring up old wholly biblically and historically inaccurate myths such as Christians never having baptism until they went to Ireland etc.

    This is actually the more pointed and insidious part of the message, not the perceived non-acknowledgment.

    Think of it as “Eostere Worshippers”.

    I think the loud and proud Christians here are both not angry enough and not angry about the right thing.

    They’re not just insulting you, they’re throwing dung at you and telling you it is incense.

    Theresa May
    @theresa_may
    The acts of violence against churches and hotels in Sri Lanka are truly appalling, and my deepest sympathies go out to all of those affected at this tragic time.

    We must stand together to make sure that no one should ever have to practise their faith in fear.

    On a day devoted to love, redemption, and renewal…

    Obama can’t manage to say “resurrection”.

    Nor can some clergy, for that matter.

    Evidently they don’t believe it.

  10. Some History

    Said easter worshippers?

    The bunny bore the brunt of the blast?.

    The bunny died that we might have chocolate eggs more abundantly.

    Don’t forget the putsch goes both ways, too-
    Malturd was an al-Eid worshipper
    And Ardern became a famous Mo worshipper, wearing the blinkers, and will soon be immortalised in a public mural, wearing such but not the Maori feather shrug.

    Obama’s and Clinton’s insensitivity to Christians deserve the ridicule- and the Leftist assertions that “Conservative outrage over Obama and Clinton “Easter worshippers” tweets is just the latest phony right-wing controversy” are not made in good faith.
    Easter was the Anglo-Saxon name for the Germanic fertility goddess that was traditionally celebrated at the time of the Spring equinox. Anglo-Saxon Christians adopted the name (and some of the traditional practices) informally for the period which coincided with their Mass of Christ’s resurrection.
    Any suggestion that Christians worship Easter should be offensive to Christians.

    Leftists outing themselves about how much they hate it that real christians died for their “tolerance”.

    Just what is to be expected from christophobes

  16. Notafan

    article at link suggests that the word Easter could be a Germanic word meaning resurrection

    nevertheless dot is probably right and this is an opportunity to promote the nonsensical. argument first promulgated by Hislop that Easter is a pagan festival and completely ignoring the fact that is intimately intertwined with the J ewish Passover
    is the name Easter pagan origin?

    The statement from acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin K. McAleenan

    On behalf of the men and women of DHS, I want to express condolences and sympathies for those affected by the Easter Sunday attack on multiple hotels and places of worship in Sri Lanka.

    DHS stands resolutely with persons of every faith who look to worship in safety and peace. We will continue our work with partners around the world to ensure that all are able to worship without fear.

    As the Department has made clear regarding attacks on members of multiple faiths: religious liberty for all is a hallmark of this country and attacks on peaceful people in their places of worship are abhorrent and must not be allowed.

    At this time we are not aware of any current, credible or active threat domestically. Regardless, the Department is doing all it can to protect the homeland from potential violent extremists.

    We will continue to monitor the situation as the response to this tragedy unfolds and investigations continue.

    The use of ‘Easter worshippers’ in all these tweets indicates that Obama, Clinton, Castro etc. don’t even write their own Tweets. They are all controlled by the leftist Marxist-media complex.
    The Marxist dogma is that Christians cannot be victims. Christians can only be evil, aggressive oppressors; enemies of Marxist advancement.

  19. Notafan

    Yes.

    Was a good article dot.

    article at link suggests that the word Easter could be a Germanic word meaning resurrection

    According to Bede, the present month of April is derived from “Paschal” and was known prior to the 8th century AD as Eosturmonath- called after the AS goddess named Eostre, in whose honour feasts were celebrated in that month.
