>Something Beautiful in Egypt–Christians Protecting Muslims

>There has been a whole lot of ugliness coming out of Egypt.  You can see it on the faces of those yelling at the government, or the police, or the pro-Mubarak supporters, or the protesters.  You can see it in the blood-stained faces and the rocks flying through the air.  You can see it in the tanks and the sticks and the burning pictures.  You can see it in the reports of plain-clothes policemen and the reports of reporters getting roughed up.  A lot of ugliness.

This is not to say that what’s happening there isn’t a good thing for the people of Egypt, many of whom are eager to get out from under the 30-year rule of Mubarak. 

But it’s ugly.

However, here’s a good image.  It’s an image of Christians protecting Muslims so they can pray. 

The above picture is from The Daily Mail and the article contains the following quote as well:

‘Some Muslims have been guarding Coptic churches while Christians pray, and on Friday, Christians were guarding the mosques while Muslims prayed.’

Also of note are the comments on Reddit which you can read below:

So…you think there’s something to be learned here?

About peace?

About Islam?

About Christianity?

About our world?
