Hillary, Obama, Bernie Avoid Saying “Christian” Or “Churches” In Sri Lanka Statements
While President Trump and several other notable leaders offer their condolences and help to Sri Lanka, democrat politicians in America go out of their way to avoid saying the words “Christian” and “churches” in their statements.
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both refer to Christians as “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.

Hillary goes out of her way to refer too this as a “holy weekend for many faiths” but fails to mention any of them by name.
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.

Bernie can’t muster up the courage either.
Our hearts go out to the victims and families of the horrific attacks in Sri Lanka. No person should have to fear for their life in their place of worship. We must work to bring this world together around our common humanity.

Hillary couldn’t even bring herself to utter the word “Catholic” in her post about the Notre Dame fire.
My heart goes out to Paris. Notre Dame is a symbol of our ability as human beings to unite for a higher purpose—to build breathtaking spaces for worship that no one person could have built on their own. I wish France strength and shared purpose as they grieve and rebuild.

Joe Biden and AOC haven’t posted anything about it.
My heart is with Sri Lanka on this #EasterSunday, w/hundreds killed & wounded in a horrific attack as they gathered in prayer. On a day devoted to love & peace, may we remember Jesus Christ’s message of love – for God & for each other – as we commit to defeating hate with love.

These acts of terror against Christians in Sri Lanka are unspeakably tragic. Our hearts are with the victims and their families. We owe them our commitment to making our world a place where no family lives in fear of persecution because of how they worship.
