Egypt’s new constitution “prepares the way for an Islamic caliphate,” according to the acting leader of Coptic Catholics, who is among three bishops to condemn the document as a fundamental attack on human rights.

CAIRO, EGYPT( Catholic Online) – The history of Christianity in Egypt dates back to the visit of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph to that land. (Matt. 2) It predates any claimed Islamic history in that land. To the Christians who live in that historic land, the history of the Christian Church is the history of Egypt.

The Evangelist Mark brought the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Egypt in 61 A.D. and planted the Church there, deep in the soil of that land of martyrs and saints. Egypt has a proud, long, unbroken and vital Christian heritage. We must pray for, stand with, and defend Christians in Egypt as hostility toward the Christian faith grows under the Morsi regime.

The majority of Christians in Egypt are Coptic Orthodox. The very word “Copt” comes from an early Greek name for Egypt. Christianity and Egypt have a long and holy history. In addition, there is a strong, ancient and devout community of Coptic Catholic Christians. The relationship between the two Churches is strong – and growing stronger under the persecution which they face together.

    Continued discrimination, the idiot news reader and her writer don’t recognize the beginning of a genocide when they see one.

    The cowardly Western so-called “leaders” would do well to study the history of Egypt, the Christian Copts and how they were displaced by the invaders who are now just about to give them the coup de grace, make no mistake about it. To those who know this history, (I dont pretend to know more than a few snippets), this must be a frightening déjà vu.

  3. Richard says:

    It is scary, what is scarier is that the same people who deny the Moslems are out to destroy all other religions also deny that Obama is out to destroy all US power, they look at the world and say the Moslems can’t win a way because the US will be able to stop them. What happens after Obama guts the US military with budget cuts and social engineering that is driving our best soldiers out?
