More than 200 dead and 450 wounded in Easter Sunday church bombings in Sri Lanka

COLOMBO (Reuters) - Easter Sunday bomb blasts at three churches and four hotels in Sri Lanka killed more than 200 people and wounded at least 450, police officials said, the first major attack on the Indian Ocean island since the end of a civil war 10 years ago.

Seven people were arrested and three police officers were killed during a security forces raid on a house in the Sri Lankan capital several hours after the rash of attacks, some of which officials said were suicide bombs.

It's quite sad that this wont have nearly as much coverage or sympathy as other tragedies regarding other religious minorities(yes Christians are a minority in Sri Lanka). Just look at how quiet this thread is, its a damn shame. RIP to all those who lost their lives.

Sad to hear, I wonder who could be responsible for such terrible attacks?

Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world, Central/South/Southeast Asia, Middle East, Africa, Christians are target numero uno. Used to be #1 in China too but the Red Chinese decided to switch up and go after Muslims in Xinjiang harder than Christians a few years ago, not that that means persecution of Christians in China has lessened

My moneys on dissident atheists.

As to this thread being quiet, it's Easter Sunday, the large majority of users are probably westerners in Christian majority countries (thankfully not for long in the UK) so maybe they're busy?

Poor brown people on the other side of the world will always get less attention, if these were mosques being blown up by rival Muslims in Sri Lanka it would get even less attention,

Fucking spoiled brats! IDK how do these fanatics have in their hearts? IMO, those riot acts are getting out of control. Does it not suppose faith should be a practice for love? Religion is loveless and faithless. Recently, I've tried this on the road to easter, I almost quit "everything worldly and sinful", I read The Holy Bible obsessively... At least, I left this mania for religion. Sadly, that's not the way to increase faith. As everything, It starts slowly. I'm praying at least 3 or 4 nights a week, 10 or 15 minutes before sleep. This is my current comfort zone.

On the horizon of your fierce gestures,
I watch a lice over Eagle's back.
