Several mainstream media outlets have once again referred to Christians as "Easter worshippers" in their reporting, sparking criticism. In covering a bus accident in South Africa that killed 45 people headed to an Easter conference, CNN, NBC News and others used the term "Easter worshippers" rather than identifying the victims as Christians.

“They’re doing this again. We are Christians, not ‘Easter worshippers,'” polling analyst Red Eagle Politics said. “We don’t worship ‘Easter,’ we worship Christ.”

The phrase previously generated controversy in 2019 when used by former President Obama and others to describe victims of Islamic extremist bombings at Easter celebrations in Sri Lanka.

State of the Union

They simply referred to what the people were doing at the time: attending Easter services sounds like someone is making a mountain out of less than a molehill. It’s as silly as losing your shite because a coffe shop puts “Happy Holidays” on a cup. Ridiculous.

I disagree with everything you just wrote. I think YOU are ridiculous, like every other Leftist in the world.

Too bad that you disagree. This board is literally the only place I’d be considered a “leftist”. I argue against leftists regularly IRL.

Very true granted it’s been 1000 or so years but Christian’s were pretty damn good when it came to waging a holy war.

Kind of like people making a mountain out of a molehill over someone using the common expression "it's going to be a bloodbath ". Ridiculous

Yeah, well these are the same outlets that often contend it borders on a hate crime to not use some made-up magical pronoun.

Which may not be the same as being defined at this board as a "heathen-prog, indifferent and oblivious of the obvious political socio-economic Wrecking Ball demolition at hand."

I tried to find news articles referring to Ramadan worshipers. I didn't see any with that in the headline.

Most of the media is Jewish, that’s why this happens.
