    Why should they wear crosses?

    Well, I guess unlike Ramadan or Hanukkah, it's celebrated by everyone and not one religion. That's going to be the excuse.
    happy easter is all of a sudden no longer offensive, but don't you dare wish someone a merry christmas you intolerant assholes!

    It isn't celebrated by everyone.

    I did find that an odd way to phrase it. It's not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things, but it's definitely odd. Sri Lanka is roughly 8% Christian, so it's not like it's a national holiday everyone enjoys like it is in America.

    And even of it was, if you go to church on Easter instead of hiding eggs for your kids, chances are near 100% you're a practicing Christian.

    And there isn't a huge population of Muslims in America. But if people said "Ramadan worshippers were attacked", it'd be an extremely odd statement.

    I agree this isn't huge. But it's fucking weird they couldn't say Christians.

    I think its a taboo ideology in the west weirdly enough. I speaks to a moral code that people would rather abandon but still now and then in the quite hours they have alone still tugs at their conscious.

    Jews celebrate Easter, so "easter worshippers" is not narrowing it down properly...what dickheads..

    and if it had been jews targeted, i doubt those tweets would be so vague..

    Jews celebrate Passover at the same time. Some Russian Jews also celebrate both because why not... we still see it as a Christian thing though and do it more out of respect.

    It seems pretty darned obvious that, given the locations of the attacks (churches), all they're saying here is that the victims were people engaged in worship of this particular religious holiday. They're obviously Christians, by virtue of worshipping Easter, but it specifies that the targets were those in church engaged in active worship. That's it. Seeing any more than that is inserting your own issues into the mix.

    Then, why couldn't they Christians? It'd be as weird as referring to a shooting of a mosque "An attack on worshippers of Allah".

    Had to be someone with alot of experience bomb making to do this. The only failed device (so far) was a car bomb which indicates the bomb maker had a good design for a command detonated suicide device, but struggled with the timed or remote control firing train. The bomb maker must have had decent training and experience given that none of the vests failed.
    You sure seem knowledgeable about bombs... former EOD tech?

    They are really easy to brainwash into blowing themselves up, weak ass minds. They must sell them some amazing stories to fall for that shit and i have seen all of their shitty propaganda videos and all it does is to make me laugh how anyone can fall for that bullshit. Martyrs and Paradise? yeah your in for a big surprise.

    Can we jump to conclusions now?

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-48012085
    National Thowheed Jamath was later named by a government spokesman as the main suspect.
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-48012694
    The group is believed to have splintered off from another hardline Islamist group in the country, the Sri Lanka Thowheed Jamath (SLTJ).
    (They are also seen as having international help.)

    First, who else would they be but Christians? It's a Christian holiday.

    Second, no, it would be like referring to a shooting of a mosque during Ramadan as "an attack on Ramadan worshippers".

    Which is exactly how stuff like that gets reported sometimes;
    https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-40343485

    It's specifying those actively engaged in worship, rather than the greater religious community. That's literally it. If you're seeing anything else, it's because of a filter you have placed over your own perspective.

    That's a really ironic statement from the guy who ignored everyone telling him that it was his fault he thought the okay sign is white supremacy.

    misspent youth, its probably not that hard to get TNT in Sri Lanka tbh
    I can kind of see why some people would be upset, since one has no mention of “Christians” while a different attack mentions Muslims.



    And you don’t worship Easter, you celebrate the resurrection of Christ...
