The Christian Thing To Do

My daughter shares with me this picture of Christians in the square protecting Muslims at prayer in Egypt:

The divergence from the intolerance, fear and bigotry so oft expressed in this country is enormous. All the more remarkable for it happening in a Muslim majority country where Coptic Christians have been under threat. And, too, an example of decency, tolerance and courage amongst the religious, at a time when strident atheists deny even the possibility.

With the joining together that's produced a chance for liberty in Egypt just now, and is spreading through all the Middle East, it's hopeful for liberation from fear and oppression for all of us.

Yup. It can be done. It has been done. It will be done again. If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars.
