Hate in Egypt: 16 orphans burned out of their home

leave a comment »

After my initial post about the plight of Copts in Egypt, an woman there who identified herself as “Dr. Jill” contacted me about 16 boys in a Christian orphanage who have been burned out of their homes. The plight of the orphans drew the attention of a secular news site in Cairo. Here is the link to their story.

The writer makes a powerful point: “No matter what side of the crisis you are on, you should be able to understand that these children are completely innocent and need your help . . . They didn’t deserve to witness these terrors, let alone lose all their belongings.”

For South Floridians, a reminder: Bishop Youssef, chief shepherd of Copts in 12 states, will address the dire situation in Egypt at a forum today (Sunday). It will start at 4 p.m. at Christ Lutheran Church, 1955 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale.
