Not just statistics

Throughout the Middle East Christians are being persecuted and murdered in odium fide. In Cairo this week a suicide bomber blew him or herself up in a chapel in the Coptic Cathedral of St Mark.

The crowd in the chapel were predominantly women and children as are most of the dead.

Egyptian Streets has the names of the dead, and pictures, potent reminders that these were real people, not just statistics or plaster saints.

    I’m not sure Bergogio’s “dialogue” with Islam is going to solve the problem

    In fact, it’s probably some kind of sin to admit Islam even exists, let alone talk to Muslims.
    Better to clasp our hands firmly over our ears, and close our eyes.
    Much.

    Just as long as we don’t forget to remind ourselves that far more Muslims than Christians are being slaughtered every day
    By other Muslims.

    Toad at 2037. Seems to me you should be making that point to Muslims. Muslims slaughtering Christians and Muslims slaughtering Muslims. So I ask, what is the common denominator here…. Do you know?
