Church spokesman strongly criticizes Egypt’s president
July 01, 2013
As millions of Egyptians took to the streets to protest Mohamed Morsi’s regime, a Church spokesman strongly criticized the Egyptian president.
Morsi heads a political party that was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood.
“Most of the Christians do not want the president,” said Father Rafic Greiche, the spokesman for the Catholic Church in Egypt. “We have to be clear about this.”
“Most of the Christians have felt during this year that nothing of his promises toward the Christians has been implemented,” he added. “And it is very important to know that this year nearly every day we have a sectarian problem: burning churches, deporting people, and this big attack on the Copt Orthodox cathedral that happened two months ago.”
