I just came across this article about a coptic priest, Maximus I, who is creating a breakaway sect of the coptic church. The story is here --> http://www.middle-east-online.com/english/?id=16907
I personally find this repulsive, though its very interesting to note the US government position on the matter. True to form, they are supporting the new church because of its disagreement about Baba Shenouda's refusal to agree to normalisation of ties with Israel.
I hope people read the article, and appreciate the position of sayedna.
