On Easter Sunday, Islamic suicide bombers detonated in three churches and three hotels in Sri Lanka, killing over 300 local Christians and Western tourists, maiming 500 more, and providing influential Westerners an opportunity to distance themselves from Christians.

In what was arguably the most bizarre response to the brutal attack, several politicians tweeted what they presumably thought were compassionate responses while refusing to acknowledge that the principal targets of the violence were Christians. Their preferred expression was “Easter worshippers.”

Former U.S. President Barack Obama wrote, “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.”

Former U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also expressed her feelings of compassion for Easter worshippers, tweeting, “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.”
