An Arabic proverb by Ali Ibn Abi Taleb: “Men are defined by the truth. The truth is not defined by Men”
(Meaning: Men are judged by their adherence to the truth, but the truth is not defined by men’s actions or faith) ”
Having said this, I want to point out the following:
1) These stories, whether true or fictional, focus on moral issues.
This sincerity of the servant’s service and character is doubted because he is a convicted murderer in this story, and in other stories adulterer, thief, etc.
I still have to encounter a story that criticizes the heresies of many teachers, servants, clergy inside the Church, and considers the heresy an offence. Copts are offended by moral shortcomings of others. In this, they are not any different than Muslims, Jews or atheists. What makes us different is the dogma.
2) Does it always have to be a servant or Sunday school teacher?
Let us say that the criminal in this story was not Hany Shenouda but Abona Bishoy X or Bishop Dawoud X (fictional characters). What would be the reaction of the forum members and moderators?
The story is counterproductive.
