“I would love not to speak about Christians and Muslims ever again,” Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, stated at the Hudson Institute on September 30, 2013.

Graduate school at the University of Maryland (recently named the 10th best party school in the United States) was quite a shock after the protected, Christian environment of my college.

The National Council of Churches (NCC) has released a not bad statement on Egypt’s recent removal of the Muslim Brotherhood regime by the military, expressing particular concern about attacks by Islamists on Egyptian churches.

Is It Just Me, or Did Kristallnacht Just Happen in Egypt?

The Kristallnacht marks the first chapter of the Holocaust.
