Columnists Criticize Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton for Not Using the Word ‘Christians’ Regarding Sri Lankan Attacks

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are facing criticism after calling Christians who were killed on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka “Easter worshippers” on their Twitter accounts.

“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,” Obama tweeted.

Clinton wrote, “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.”

Columnists are striking back, saying the chosen language is “not just strange and unnatural. It’s a political calculation.”

“It was an attack on Christians. It was an attack on Christianity,” Cheryl K. Chumley wrote in a column for The Washington Times.

“Calling them ‘Easter worshippers’ is a political ploy designed to tamp down realities of radical Islamic terror targeting of Christians and Christianity,” she added.
