Coptic diaspora in Australia & Ireland. As I am Irish first let
me ask an indigenous Copt residing in Eire this:
you know our Irish history?
you understand our teanga/language and its history?
you spent considerable time understanding our Irish martyrs both
secular and religious in the struggle?
you know some of our special songs – both religious and secular?
you know/understand the lay of our land – its meanings, markers,
the same to Copts living in Australia regarding the indigenous people
as a Copt residing in either of these countries your answer is no
DO YOU EXPECT US TO REVERE YOUR ETHNO CENTRICITY
YOUR biased ethnocentric APPROACH TO NON EGYPTIAN CHRISTIANS who
believe in Iosa Criost who attend your church?
It is worthy of mention no indigenous Australian is a member of the Coptic Church in Australia.... no prizes for knowing why...
do you inisst on speaking in the Arabic (the conquerer language)
rather than the other language of oppression for so many (English)
but at least with English language we of all different tribes can all
I have spent hours and hours reading Egyptian history and learning
about Coptic language etc I dont know now why I bothered because all
it does is act as a reinforcer to your belief you are superior to
other cultures. Rather than engaging in shared cultural differences
Copts in my experience use it as a weapon to heighten their belief
their culture is superior over anyone elses. Tis unbeievable given
they r living on another tribes land.
Muslim criitque of Copts (pls dont deflect with stories of Christian
martyrs & oppression because all cultures have these) holds some
validity in certain facets. It is actually shameful. I have also
experienced a Copt woman show utter verbal disregard for Muslims and
dismiss their lives as though they were worthless.
am actually so disgusted now and want the Coptic church out of
Ireland if they are going to continue with this entrenched regressive
behaviour. O and if the moderator who threatened me with a ban wants
to ban me go right ahead as I have already told you. If you are
unwilling to address critique you are no better than the Vatican.
