    Six nearly simultaneous explosions struck three churches and three hotels frequented by tourists on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka, killing at least 137 people and injuring many more, according to police and hospital sources.

    Multiple fatalities resulted among worshipers and hotel guests, a police official said, adding that at least two of the church blasts were believed to have been a coordinated attack carried out by suicide bombers.

    Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe met with senior military personnel in an emergency meeting. He wrote on Twitter: "I strongly condemn the cowardly attacks on our people today."​

    I’m sure it was an accident on Easter. Construction accident no doubt.

    This begs the question though, and it's a lot like an old adage about a tree in a forest:

    "if a Christian church gets bombed, burned, tampered with or otherwise violated, and it's not a BLACK church, or one at which possibly a gay wedding has just taken place, thereby allowing the "news" to paint white Christian bigots as the primary suspects immediatly and with certainty, will they even consider it newsworthy?"

    That death toll, btw, is horrendous and likely to climb. Simply awful. I have been praying and will continue to pray for Brothers and Sisters in the Lord who just wanted to worship on Easter Sunday and were instead bombed. No excuse for this.

    The lovely thing muslims do with such bombs is put the nails in rat poison should you not be killed outright by the explosion.

    Another fun tactic is one Muslim will blow himself up inside while another waits outside. Then as survivors flee the building the one outside detonates himself.
