Obama said something awful about Christians in response to the Sri Lanka terrorist attack
The horrific Easter Sunday Islamic terror attack in Sri Lanka killed at least 290 Christians.
It was a coordinated attack by an Islamic terrorist organization, and a direct attack on Christianity.
But despite that, former President Obama couldn’t wait to respond in the worst way possible, saying something awful about Christians.
Before the death count was even fully known, former President Obama took to Twitter to steer the conversation around the terror attack.
Instead of mentioning the attack being against Christians, he referred to the victims simply as “tourists and Easter worshippers.”
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.

The former President wasn’t even willing to mention the fact it was a terror attack.
And he hasn’t acknowledged, and almost certainly never will acknowledge, the fact that those responsible are radical Islamists.
But Obama isn’t alone.
Following in his lead, Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to condemn the attack on “Easter worshippers.”
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.

Dozens of other Democrat officials followed suit, refusing to say the word “Christian” in their statements about the attack, instead labeling victims “Easter worshippers.”
Obama’s words are in stark contrast to what he said immediately following the Mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand.
In response to those shootings he directly mentioned the “Muslim community,” stating he was grieving with them.
Obama’s reluctance to mention the victims’ or the perpetrator’s faiths in the Sri Lanka attack hearkens back to his eight years in office, when he always instinctively held his tongue when it came to mentioning radical Islam.
On the campaign trail, then-candidate Trump continually went after Obama for his refusal to say the words “radical Islamic terrorism.”
Obama has also created outrage by attempting to draw equivalences between radical Islamic violence and terror to medieval Christianity.
At the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast, he told Americans not to “get on our high horse” about radical Islam, because Christians committed violence centuries ago.
The attack in Sri Lanka is yet another event in radical Islam’s all-out war on Christianity.
Of course, Democrats refuse to acknowledge this fact, instead labeling anyone who is concerned about Islam as “bigoted.”
