Big Red Scary comments:
According to the Venerable Bede, the English word “Easter” comes from the name of an Anglo-Saxon month, which in turn was named after the goddess Eostre. With that in mind, “Easter worshipper” sounds decidedly pagan, which perhaps explains its popularity in this clique.
This “Easter worshipper” thing is a new literary construction created for the sole purpose of not mentioning Christianity.
The oldest result I can find on Google is 1983 in the NYTimes. It doesn’t crop up again until 1994 (some weird blog) and nothing after that until 2000, yet it only really took off today. I’m sure a more detailed search would reveal additional uses of the term in the past, but it’s still very strange.
So weird that both of the two most prominent Dems, as well as one of their candidates, would all that Tweet that within ~3 hours of each other. Did they plan it out in some kind of globalist teleconference?
And then Blue Checkmarks “wonder” why conspiracy theories are on the rise.
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.

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 a day of redemption and hope, the evil of these attacks on Easter worshippers and tourists in Sri Lanka is deeply saddening. My prayers today are with the dead and injured, and their families. May we find grace.
