Earlier today we told you about an explosion in Pakistan that killed over 50 people – mostly women and children – in a targeted strike against Christians.
Here’s the State Department’s response…
When the U.S. Department of State released a statement condemning the Pakistani Taliban faction’s Easter bombing in a Lahore park, it noticeably omitted the fact that Easter-celebrating Christians were specifically targeted.
The bombing’s death toll climbed to 60 people, with 300 others that were reported as wounded. The explosion, which appeared to be a suicide bombing, struck an area that was crowded with Christians who were celebrating Easter. A splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban has since claimed full responsibility for the bombing, which it claimed was specifically targeting Christians who were celebrating the Easter holiday weekend, according to the Los Angeles Times.
But when the Department of State released its statement addressing the bombing, it failed to mention that key component.
Nothing about Christians being targeted?
Was that to protect Muslims since they have become, in essence, a protected class?
Tell the truth!
These Christians were hunted by radical Islamic terrorists over their beliefs. Were Christians targeting Muslims, something tells me that would be headline news.
