Holy Father, Pope Francis, Please Speak for Us About Persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt


Dale Weeks wrote:

I wish OUR POPE were handling this better. Yes, he has fittingly called for our prayers, but I think what's happening to Christians in Egypt calls for a personal and forceful denunciation from the Pope. I don't have any illusions that the Muslim Brotherhood would cease and desist, but the Pope has a unique bully pulpit.

When Benedict publicly rebuked the Obama administration on the subject of abortion and ObamaCare, Christians and virtually ALL people of faith rallied behind him. Ostensibly, he's the leader of worldwide Christianity and when he talks, people listen and his unequivocal condemnation would virtually force Obama and the West to publicly address the atrocities. Perhaps it wouldn't help, but it would be more productive than the current deafening silence.
