Mayor Helps published the following tweet:

“My heart goes out to those killed or injured in the bombings in Sri Lanka. We should be very concerned as a human species whenever sanctuaries of any faith group are attacked; sanctuaries are by definition safe places, or should be.”


I'm not sure which is more offensive, this or the Obama/Clinton tweets about "Easter worshippers". If only there was one single word that could be used instead of Easter worshippers...
Just wait till the next attack at Christmas. We will hear about santa worshipers

#ItIsTime for us all to #StandTogether and recognise #Antichristianism as much a real phenomenon and epidemic as #Antisemitism and #Islamophobia and deal with it as such. Only when we consider an attack on ANY of us as one on ALL of us can we go some way towards healing our world - https://twitter.com/BishopAngaelos

It's amazing how thin the vernacular of officialdom becomes in these moments.

Why don't they want to say Christian?

^^Trying to keep things simple here.

 

They don't say Christian because they don't want to. It's no more/no less complicated than that.

Do we (the west) care more about Christchurch because the attack happened in the west?

 

Do we care more about Christchurch because the attack was perpetrated by a white person? 

 

Do we not care about Sri Lanka because it's a [relatively] obscure country many people are not familiar with?

 

Do we not care so much about Sri Lanka because it was an attack on Christians?

most of us have a basic understanding of the west. no so many understand Sri Lanka. so christchurxh was probably a more major event to many.
