I was going to post on something else today but that can wait.
Yesterday our brothers and sisters in the Coptic Church in Egypt were battered by yet another bomb attack, two in fact, in Tanta and in Alexandria. NZ Herald report here (with video).
Militant, violent, vicious forces working in the name of Islam - though thankfully not supported by the majority of Muslims - are intent on killing Christians.
These are dark days but not unknown days for Christians.
Damian Thompson sees the attack as part of a campaign to wipe Christians from the face of the earth.
I wonder if Sonny Bill Williams will visibly protest this murderous violence by his co-religionists when he next plays rugby?
UPDATE: Statement from Archbishop Mouneer Abbas.
Also worth reading is this from Mark Steyn.
