People don’t often think of Egypt as a Christian nation.
Yet, more than 600 years before Islam was, Christianity was, in Egypt.
The beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by ISIS is yet another depraved, demonic and deliberately perpetrated act of religious murder.
To say this is not directly related to Islamic terror is a notion that terminally strains credulity.
None of us should sink to animalistic hatred in reaction. Thus we would be mimicking our enemies.
Even so, denial is a fundamental insult to the victims of this morally religious degeneracy, and therefore it undermines a humane and critically definitive response.
