Democrats Refuse To Use The Word ‘Christian’ To Describe The Victims of Islamic Terror on Easter in Sri Lanka

Democratic leaders are referring to Christians as “Easter worshippers” as a slap to the face of the dead.

A series of terror attacks in Sri Lanka, where Islamic extremists targeted churches and luxury hotels on Easter morning, has claimed nearly 300 lives, but Democratic leaders refuse to even acknowledge the Christians who were terrorized by the Jihadi violence.

Instead of mentioning the Christians who were murdered by Muslim terrorists, the talking point used by many Democratic leaders – including former President Barack Hussein Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – was that “Easter worshippers” were targeted by an “attack” committed by unnamed individuals.

The fake news media was also on board with the agenda to downplay the terror threat against Christians, showing that the talking point was ordered from the top before the attack even happened.

On the other hand, after last month’s New Zealand mosque massacre, the Democrats and their mainstream media partners tripped over themselves praising the Muslim community while assigning collective blame to white individuals.

Democrats have become more openly hostile toward Christians in recent years, as they work to force Christian bakers to perform services for homosexual marriages. They are also pushing for late-term abortion up until the point of labor, which is really just the legalized murder of babies.

Radical socialism isn’t the only sinister agenda harbored by the Democrats. They also want to destroy any memory to Jesus as they turn a once-Christian nation into a secular, postmodern wasteland.

Turkey’s Erdogan is Threatening To Convert One of Christianity’s Most Historic Churches Back into a Mosque

The 6th century church is currently a museum.

Turkey’s Islamist president is threatening to convert one of the world’s most historic and iconic Christian churches into an Islamic mosque, in a move designed to appease Tayyip Erdogan’s political base and insult Christians.

The Council of State of Turkey is expected to rule this week on a request by Erdogan to convert the Hagia Sophia Museum into an Islamic mosque, and international observers are expecting that the court system will sign off on Erdogan’s initiative to turn the former church into a mosque.

The Hagia Sophia Church was constructed in Constantinople(today known as Istanbul) in A.D. 537 by Justinian, the then-Emperor of the Eastern Roman or Byzantine Empire. The church was a global symbol of the Byzantine civilization throughout the Middle Ages. It was converted into an Islamic mosque in the year 1453 when the Ottoman Empire captured Constantinople under the leadership of Mehmed II, a moment in history that Erdogan and his supporters point to as a moment of national pride.

When Turkey emerged from the declining Ottoman Empire shortly after World War I, the nation’s contemporary founder, Kemal Ataturk, arranged for the building to be placed into a use as a museum. The building, which is Turkey’s most visited tourist attraction to this day, has remained as such since 1935.

The church remains a holy symbol to hundreds of millions of Orthodox Christians throughout the world today. Bartholomew I, the Christian bishop who holds the Byzantine title of “Patriarch of Constantinople” in Istanbul, warned of the consequences of such an inflammatory cultural act. “The potential conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque will turn millions of Christians around the world against Islam… What can I say as a Christian clergyman and the Greek patriarch in Istanbul? Instead of uniting, a 1,500-year-old heritage is dividing us. I am saddened and shaken.

The 6th century building is not only noteworthy to two major world religions(originally Christianity), but is the most architecturally impressive building preserved from the early Middle Ages. Many of Constantinople’s most historic churches and buildings, such the Church of the Holy Apostles, were destroyed by the Ottoman conquerors in the decades following the 1453 Siege of Constantinople.

The Hagia Sophia church contains some of the most-well preserved medieval Byzantine images of Christ, Mary, various saints, and several Eastern Roman Emperors. As images of the human form are prohibited in Islam, some have questioned whether the artwork- which was uncovered from beneath a coating material when the building was phased from an Ottoman mosque into a museum- will be destroyed in the event it’s turned back into a mosque.

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, the government of Greece(which views itself as the inheritor of the Byzantine Empire’s Greek-speaking legacy), and United Nations cultural institutions have spoken against the planned usurpation of the historic church. Pope Francis has been conspicuously silent, thus far.
