Christian Churches Burning in Egypt

Amira Mikhail Compiles List of Churches Attacked in Latest Egypt Violence

It would be easy to lay out a case that the Christian churches under attack in Egypt are a direct consequence of the Obama administration’s foreign policy supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. That would be an exercise in futility since it would not sway anyone’s opinion at this point in time. The fact is that Christianity is under attack in Egypt, China, North Korea and the United States.

Let us pray that the impending world war will not become a religious war.

I miss America: remember when we did not even know the word “jihad” and patriots were not domestic terrorists? I have included the complete list of Christian churches that have been attacked as of August 16, 2013. This list comes from AMIRA MIKHAIL and is being updated continuously.

    They’re also under attack in Syria.

    Why do you hope the world war will not be a religious war? I don’t see how that would make it any worse.
