Christians are being murdered globally and ethnically cleansed for their faith.

And leaders cannot even tell the truth or address the Islamist fanatics responsible.

It’s calked diplomacy, and not inflating, current leadership could learn a lot, if they’ve ever paid attention..which I doubt.

What exactly do you think Easter is?

It's a CHRISTIAN festival for the observation of the resurrection of CHRIST, Jesus; in conjunction with the culmination of Lent.

It also heavily derives from the Jewish Passover, and Easter is literally a translation of the Hebrew word for Passover.

This is why Easter changes dates each year as it's linked to Old Testament/Jewish Passover spring rituals to commemorate the Exodus out of Egyptian slavery.

For Obama to refer to Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka, he is literally referring directly to CHRISTIANS.

Easter is broadly celebrated by CHRISTIANS and secular folk alike across most of the world. Non-Christians also died in Sri Lanka.

Taking a dig at Obama for literally using a more precise descriptor for the majority of victims of the Easter bombings is both ignorant of Christian nomenclature and pathetically politically partisan.

Your post reads like you're also point scoring across the political spectrum over an absolute tragedy.

You may not be intending to do so, but that is how your comment comes across. You detest such actions in others so please be cognisant that you appear to be doing just the same.

Obama would not call out muslim extremists as being that....fanatical Islamists who hate other faiths and other Muslims.

Obama mocked white working class Americans saying all they have is their religion and guns

He let Syria down after gas attacks.

Muslims in many areas are let down by our leaders and cmxhristisns are now being removed by muslim extremism in terror groups and regimes.

Look at Brunei when lgbt were threatened by Islamist and the broad liberal left called them out.... But Christians and yazidi died and were ignored by many leaders and liberal left voices.

Not all liberals or left wing folk, but too many.

I am virtually the only person who reports on Christians bring removed from parts of the world and murdered in others

If a black guy or muslim mentions race attacks, is he point scoring.????

Sterling and Rose campaign about race issues so are they ignorant haters.

Why the double standards.??

Dave.

Would you suggest point scoring here?

Stereotyping millions for not being like the poster.

posted on 23/4/19

Diplomacy lol.

So he was trying to play down the actual reason behind the attack....thus contradicting what Dave implied by using Easter worshippers.

Why not just call them Christian and the killers, islamist muslim extremists!??

Truth...Not ignorance or glossing over facts.

I was the very first and most frequent commenter on the Sri Lankan crisis this week on the other thread. You frequently call out "leftards" for not doing so, yet I am one but DO call these things out where I see them.

I don't like the sweeping generalisations as they're almost always partly wrong. You calling out Baz's is fair but then do the same thing about me. WTF man?

You're honestly one of the very few who does call out atrocities on all sides and I admire you for that immensely. Others on the left overlook this about you, but then you rarely, if ever, call out the right and right leaning posters for their constant hypocrisy on the very topics that you're so riled up about the left for. Double standards, mate.

Dave.

I call out right wing racism against black and Asian and muslim.....I condemned the mosque attack, the black church attack by Roof. ..the synagogue attack too.

I oppose the f Allah brigade on the natzi right and called out Trump on his cages for kids

I do not lump you and other left wing guys in with sizzle or red or hec etc....they are often leftard and remain hard.

I call out specific things and if I generalize I apologize as it is meant for certain people and groups.

I respect and like you and do not do snide.😉

The lack of media coverage in the USA over Sri Lanka is a bit appalling. Been following the BBC over this.

Doesn't matter what religion is involved. We don't need people killed for no reason.

Lastly, Obama's controversial tweet is nothing like Hillary's. But it's whatever.

You read it differently from me.

Hitler and Mao and Pot and Stalin and Castro and G Khan were not religious killers.....politics and ideology must die too then.

Hi bud

What actually did Obama and Hilary say.??

I Know both want to be different from Trump, and even refuse to admit Muslims can be as bad as white nutters, but I have bot seen their quotes.

The only media somewhat covering this in the US is Fox due to their Christian viewers.

The rest of the mainstream aren't even touching this subject matter. As someone previously said, if this was an attack on blacks or Muslims, the news coverage will be 24/7 that.

Personally, I do want to know how the Sri Lankans are recovering and if they caught the mind behind this horrible act but noooooooo.

That was a point I made here and on the election thread ...compared to attacks by racist white guys in the US and NZ, covering attacks on Christians and so called crusader westerners gets less attention from the Woke media and regressive leftists.

Sad that we even divide death politically now, as attacks by white, black or Islamist nutters should get equal coverage.

After NZ threads here were full of posts as they are after American shootings, but if christians are killed across the world, it is mentioned and passed over by those concerned with other murders.....not all are as Dave does comment, but most who love a good shooting in America stay quiet.

Clinton: 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.

Obama: 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.
----------------------------------------------
Clinton on NZ shooting: 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.

Obama on NZ shooting: 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.

The tones and language used is totally different on Hillary's front. Strange really.

The tone and language are quite specific on attacks against muslim by white racists...Whereas, the they do not say Islamist or extremist Muslims attacked Christians and what idid called western crusader allies in Sri Lanka.

But you know this.

Thanks Freedom.

Different agenda and emphasis there.

Same here on the various threads

Both Obama and Clinton are at least nominal Christians, they both rejected the hate and violence that inspired it and recognised the people effected most.

Getting worked up over the fact they didn't mention Catholic or ISIS seems to me a crazy thing to get worked up about all things considered.

I am neither mock shocked or worked up.

Good point though about how the Christian West responds to white Christian racist attackers though....we all condemn and disown it.

Pity when Christians and westerners are murdered the same empathy and support was not forthcoming from certain quarters! ....those Isis and Islamist claim to defend and represent ....

Look at how NZ responded compared to say Egypt when Christians are targeted.

Where are their leaders calling out muslim supremacists and where are the crowds showing solidarity in Islamic nations when Christians are killed.

Just sayin.

Responses are very different depending on who kills and who is killed.

Why did they mention white racist supremacist and muslim 're. NZ, but did not mention who carried out Isis attacks.???

Or explain why Christians were targets?
