Dozens of Top Democrats Refuse to Speak Christ’s Name After Sri Lanka Attacks
After the terrorist attacks on Easter morning in Sri Lanka killed over 300 people, former President Barack Hussein Obama and former Secretary of State were lambasted by conservatives for going out of their way not to mention Christ while expressing their condolences.
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.

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.

Obama and Clinton didn’t necessarily deserve to be singled out for their reactions because they were emblematic of the Democratic Party as a whole.
After inspecting the social media accounts of dozens of top Democratic officials, it was shown that very few of them acknowledged Jesus. The talking point to slight Christians must have come from the top.
A compilation of all the Democratic politicians and backers, including all of the top Presidential candidates, denying Christ can be seen here.
However, not every single Democrat is unwilling to give respect and admiration to worshippers of Jesus Christ. A handful of upstart presidential candidates actually mentioned that Christians were targeted by the vicious acts of terror.
The attacks in Sri Lanka are a horrific tragedy. Our heartfelt condolences to the individuals and families who were victims of this senseless attack, particularly Christian communities who were celebrating in peace. #HumanityFirst

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.

While 2020 hopefuls Gabbard, Yang and O’Rourke did mention Christians, they lacked the courage to single out the culprits of the attacks though. None of them, nor any Democratic politician for that matter, have the courage to put radical Islam in the crosshairs for the violence and terrorism they commit against Christians worldwide.
Democrats may be committing political suicide in their openly bigoted posturing against Christians in America, as more Americans are realizing that a bigger role for religion is desperately needed in society.
AFP News reports:
Around half of Americans favor religion playing a greater role in US society, while 18 percent oppose that idea, according to a Pew Research Center study published Monday.
Despite there being a separation of church and state, religion plays a significant part in daily US life: the president traditionally is sworn in using a Bible, while “In God We Trust” is printed on bank notes…
In the US, the proportion rose to 61 percent among people aged 50 and over, but dropped to 39 percent among 18 to 29-year-olds.
The study was carried out with a representative sample of at least 1,000 people in each country.
Those numbers will need to continue trending upward if Americans want to undo the immense cultural damage that has been inflicted by generations of secular liberalism.
