Hm I think it's valid to ask why they used to term "easter worshippers" instead of Christians. As far as I know nobody called the victims of the New Zealand mosque shooter "Friday Prayer worshippers" or something like that.

"easter worshippers" isn't even a more inclusive term than Christians because we have no clue if the non Christians, who were killed in the churches, even "worshipped easter".

Edit: Also "easter worshippers" in a church celebrate to birth of god's son, Jesus Christ and how do we call such people? Christians

So if you think that Easter worshippers in a church are by definition Christian then what's the issue?

Obama: it's sad that 10 squares will killed this Saturday.

Conservative: Fuckin' coward doesn't want to say that rectangles were murdered.

Why are they(not only Clinton and Obama) using this strange term instead of the much more well known term?
I think they did that because they are afraid, many far right figures use islamist terror attacks against Christians as justification for their anti muslim agenda and they don't want to feed into that. But I think hiding behind ambiguous words is the wrong responds.
