Reports have come out that protestors in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood have raided and/or burned at least 40 Catholic/Christian Churches plus numerous other Christian buildings (schools, etc.).
It seems that political conflicts has spilled into religious persecution. Of course, this is not unexpected when government is closely linked or based on a religion.
Obviously not all Muslims are bad people, but situations like this continue to place a bad light on the religion and the region of the world in which it came from.
It is sad to see places rich in history constantly go through situations like this.BLUE COLLAR, GOLD SWAGGER

I've always known of this situation in Egypt, and, truth to be told, I'm really worried about what's going to happen.
The worst case scenario is when this country falls into civil war, which is still likely if the Brotherhood and the Liberals are engaged in a deadlock.I'm also over at the Moriya Shrine! Go there if you're also a fan of Touhou. After all, it is a small community, like WP, right?

First of all, this shouldn't be any surprise when the army raids mosques on a regular and kills people and then they hear things such as "Christians are mostly doing the killing for the army men to the people in the mosques". When they hear this, of course this will bait some people into doing some church burning, which is exactly what the leaders want! Then they blame the brotherhood for it to be placed on the news. It's all propaganda and everyone is falling for it hook-line and sinker.... The Egyptians are being played like fools and I, as an Egyptian, am so scared for how my country will be in the future...

here is a pic of muslims protecting a church in Egypt http://i.imgur.com/MqUkpFg.jpg.
btw the thing is as long as religion exists we will not have peace and people will continue to kill each other due to their religious differences every chance they get.

Whew, it's a good thing the group our president supports, the Muslim Brotherhood, is such a moderate and peaceful group...or else we might have them raping, murdering, and pillaging...or even marking houses with red paint as preparatory work before raiding them! Such "moderate", "peaceful" folks, indeed: In Egyptian village, Christian shops marked ahead of church attack (+video) - CSMonitor.com So it's a good thing we don't support the violent and vile people out there...Rob
