What's next for us?
The revolution of a minority has been hijacked by a majority that I'm pretty sure (whether they were Christian or Muslim) didn't give their lives to see run Egypt.
The departure of His Holiness comes at a bleak time for us.
The imam, Wagdi Ghoneim released a scathing attack on his holiness just after the news of His passing away emerged. I cannot repeat what was said, it is VERY upsetting - but what worries me is the audacity with which Ghoneim could spew out such hateful comments - as if now he is immune from any repercussions given the nature of our Islamized parliament.
The salafists walked out of parliament during a 1 minute silence in respect for our Pope.
Where does this leave us?
Egypt is suffering financially, and all that is bothering the people's assembly and their ministers is our religion? That's the priority for them?
The west have sold their own religion, and its pretty hard right now for them even to be Christians in a Christian denominated country. Where is "home" for us?
I could have called Egypt "my home" when people like Wagdi Ghoniem were a minority. But check him out on FB - despite attacking our pontiff, he still has 125,000 likes.
What's next for us?? Where do we go?
I work with a muslim guy who didn't even want to tell me he is sorry the passing away of our pontiff because he hates him.
What must it be like in Egypt??
