Breitbart: Former President Barack Obama, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and several other leading Democrats denounced terror attacks on what they called “Easter worshippers” — not Christians — Sunday in Sri Lanka.
Suicide bombers murdered nearly 300 people and wounded 500 more in attacks on three churches, three hotels, and a housing complex. Many were killed as they attended Mass for Easter Sunday. The government reportedly suspects that the bombers, all Sri Lankans, were members of “a domestic Islamist terror group named National Thowfeek Jamaath.”
Yet Obama, Clinton, and other Democrats — including 2020 presidential contender Julián Castro — could not bring themselves to identify the victims of the attacks as “Christians,” calling them “Easter worshippers”. more …
Opinion: The talking points memo went out and one thing we know for sure, Democrats march in unison, no matter what the cause who who it offends.
Before condemning O and H, Christians have been saying Happy Easter, a title that has nothing to do with the risen Christ, for centuries. Easter is a pagan word that many historians, including Biblical scholars, agree was originally a pagan festival.
According to the New Unger’s Bible Dictionary: “The word Easter is of Saxon origin, Eastra, (Ishtar) the goddess of spring (hence- eggs and bunnies), in whose honour sacrifices were offered about Passover time each year. By the eighth century Anglo–Saxons had adopted the name to designate the celebration of Christ’s resurrection.”
If Christians would stop saying happy Easter and say Happy ‘Resurrection Day’, it would force the Democrats to use Resurrection worshipers, and that, would never happen.
