Egyptian Christians Cancel Easter Festivities Out Of Respect For Their Dead & Because Muslims Will Likely Try To Kill Them

This makes Muslims Happy.

The Coptic Orthodox Diocese of Minya, located in southern Egypt, said Tuesday that commemorations of the Resurrection of Jesus will be limited to the liturgical prayers “without any festive manifestations” out of respect for the faithful who were slain by suicide bombers of the Islamic State.

The Minya province has the highest Coptic Christian population in the country and Christians there traditionally hold Easter Vigil services on Saturday evening and then spend Easter Sunday on large meals and family visits.

Christians in Minya have lived in constant fear of attacks from the area’s large Salafi Muslim population. In certain local villages, the faithful celebrate Mass before a cross drawn on a wall, making it easy to erase quickly in order to avoid attacks.

    Meanwhile here in Sunny Ways Canada, non stop coverage of someone being dragged off a United Airlines flight, but no mention of muslims murdering Christians all over the world. Although we did get plenty of coverage of muslims with bags over their heads, at the Liberal Party Malala celebrations on parliament hill today.

    Perhaps it is about time Christians suicide bomb full mosque during muslim worship. But then, we just don’t do that. Pity though, it would be great to witness the tit for tat outrage.

    Egypt will soon be like Turkey, 99.5% Muslim.
