More Anti-Christianity in Egypt

A modern Coptic monastery

Tens of thousands of Egyptians led by hard-line Islamists escalated their protests Friday over the appointment of a Coptic Christian governor in southern Egypt, deepening mistrust between religious communities during the bumpy aftermath of Egypt’s revolution.  More than a week of protests seeking to unseat the governor of Qena province are testing the ability of Egypt’s transitional military rulers and the interim government to handle an Islamic movement capable of rallying large numbers behind its hard-line agenda without jeopardizing the future of a democratic Egypt.

Tens of thousands…  That bodes quite poorly for the future of Christianity in Egypt.  Will Christians be driven from that country as they have from Iraq, Iran, Palestine and Israel?  Does ‘democracy’ in the middle east mean the end of the Christian community there?

    It looks like the great trial for Christians is going to start in this part of the world, but in ideology it has already begun in the West too. True Christianity is going to be almost impossible as time moves even further! As the Church sleeps with Rob Bell books in their emergent hands!

    Atheists are thrilled by this. Guys like John Loftus who yearn for “The End of Christianity” are willing to support anything that leads to the elimination of Christians in a society.
