Obama And Hillary Refuse To Call Sri Lanka Victims Christians; Here’s What They Called Them Instead

On what’s arguably the most important holiday to Christians all over the world, Easter, the day we as believers celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, a group of radical Muslims carried out a series of brutal bombings against churches and hotels in Sri Lanka killing more than 200 people.

Former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton decided to weigh in on the tragedy, along with the vast majority of 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls, however, in quite a few of the responses there was one word that was missing and it was in reference to the victims. Obama and Hillary didn’t call them Christians. They called them “Easter worshippers.”

It didn’t take folks long on Twitter to notice this strange phrase popping up in these replies.

And in a bid to make sure they continue to appeal to the base that might elect them to be the Democratic presidential candidate, many of those already running responded in similar fashion:

Believe it or not, Beto O’Rourke and Andrew Yang were among the few candidates who actually used the label “Christian” in reference to the Sri Lanka victims.

Of course, a lot of folks on the GOP side had no problem calling these folks by the term they lovingly embrace.

As believers in Jesus Christ, we’re Christians. We’re not “Easter worshippers.” We don’t worship Ishtar, we worship the risen Lord Jesus Christ and Him only. We want to be identified as Christians, and seeing how the whole “identity” spiel by liberals is a hot button topic these days, it shouldn’t be a big deal to call us what we are.

Followers of Jesus Christ are no strangers to persecution for their beliefs, as church and world history teach us clearly. Jesus Himself said his followers would be hated because they shine the light of his glory down on a world that wants nothing to do with him. It exposes their wickedness and that’s not what a fallen world wants.

We wear the label proudly. We’re Christians. We’re “little Christs.” Don’t try to apply political correctness to us and thus strip some of our identity away.
