Hate in Egypt: 16 orphans burned out of their home
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.
