    Humans are just horrible. Why are humans mean to others just because they are different? To the point of murder?
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    Evil people are just evil? But why would I not want to actually hurt people who I disagree with? I wouldn't act like that! Mainly because Jesus doesn't want me to do that, but I also don't want to!

    Anyway, there's no question about who's behind this latest incident:

    Source: Breitbart

    A local Islamist terrorist group called National Thowfeek Jamaath was responsible for multiple Easter Sunday suicide bomb attacks against Christians and luxury hotel guests in Sri Lanka, government officials on Monday revealed.

    Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne told a news conference that all the bombers were Sri Lankan citizens.

    These people are engaged in holy war. Their enemies provide the reasons to fight. Their grievances go back a long way. We either have to fight the war even harder than they do, even to the point of killing their memory of past injustices, or give them justice. For that, we need to have a sense of our own sin towards them.

    It seems that prominent Democrats, including former president Barack Obama and two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, can't bring themselves to admit that this attack was against Christians, referring to them more ambiguously as "Easter worshippers".

    What a sick and depraved rationalization for the murder of nearly 300 people.

    Right, some people did something...
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    If only there was some word by which we could easily identify these "Easter worshippers."
