The American Middle East Christians Congress (AMECC) adds its voice to that of His Holiness Pope Francis and the World Council of Churches to condemn the heinous crimes against the innocent worshipers in Mar Girgis Coptic Church and St. Mark’s Church in Egypt.
We express our sympathy to His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, the Coptic Church, Christianity and humanity at large, especially on this Palm Sunday.
This attack was part in a series–this is not the first, and we pray it will be the last. The world’s conscience must arise not only in condemning, but in finding a way to prevent such attacks on innocent people–their only crime being that they are Christians.
