WhatWouldJohnCrichtonDo? posted a topic in Wide World of SnarkOver 200 people were killed in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, in a series of bombings in churches and hotels. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/world/coordinated-explosions-rock-three-churches-and-two-hotels-in-sri-lanka-on-easter-sunday/2019/04/21/a09002a0-63f6-11e9-9ff2-abc984dc9eec_story.html The Washington Post article doesn't definitely say that the motive behind these bombs was to target Christians, but given that more than one of the targets was a Christian church and that they took place on the most important holy day in the Christian calendar, it seems probable. (It's such a dumb side note, but I want to shake some of "our" fundies here in the US who cry "persecution" when their barrista says, "Happy Holidays!" Bombs in your church are persecution. Shootings at your mosque are persecution. Shootings at your synagogue are persecution. Grow the fuck up, your dim dipshits.) I guess I'm going to check this story periodically today, in between the egg hunt and the cozy family meal we have planned. And keep the people of Sri Lanka in my heart all day.
