While we argue on blogs...

I came across this story today about knife-weilding attacks on Christians in Egypt. It's just another reminder that we have it so good here. While we concern ourselves with marketing and postmodernism our brothers and sisters around the world lose their lives over the name of Christ.

Knife-Wielding Attackers Kill 1 Worshipper, Dozens Wounded in Egypt
Friday, April 14, 2006

CAIRO, Egypt — Worshippers at three Christian churches came under attack from knife-wielding assailants during Mass on Good Friday, police said.

Police said one worshipper was killed and more than a dozen wounded in the simultaneous attacks in the northern city of Alexandria.

Police were searching for three men, one in each attack.

Hundreds of Christians gathered outside the Coptic Christian churches to protest the attacks, and witnesses said clashes erupted between Christians and Muslims.

Initial police reports said a total of 17 people were injured: 10 at the Saints Church in downtown Alexandria and three at the nearbyMar Girgis Church. A third attacker wounded four worshippers at a church in Abu Qir, a few miles to the east.
