A couple of months ago I wrote the post “Pope Shenouda & the SCAF” as I was pissed off from the situations that we get to in consequence of the pope’s actions.
Today was the Coptic Christmas eve, the first Christmas eve without Mubarak’s son attending the mass, without all those familiar faces of the bastards who stole our money and helped oppressing a population but, we exchanged them for 18 generals who are accused now of killing hundreds, injuring, torturing and jailing thousands as well as using internationally prohibited chemical weapons against peaceful protesters.
I do not care if they went to attend the mass or not, I do not care if the pope let them in but the bottom line is that .. He can let them in BUT not to THANK them for coming!
Ghada Kamal who got tortured by the military and Samira Ibrahim who was subjected to a virginity test were not allowed to enter the cathedral although they had invitations and that is one thing.
The second thing was the pope thanking the SCAF members who attended for coming and finally the third thing was Peter Youssef who shouted “Down Down with the military rule” when the pope thanked the generals was beaten by the security men of the church!
All those 3 incidents in one church on one day during the mass made me so angry to an extent that I couldn’t handle it and kept insulting the pope -who is kind of sacred to Copts – in front of my relatives. It is a SHAME on Christians to accept such acts, we will NEVER allow those kind of actions in the post Mubarak Egypt!
If me – A guy living abroad – feel angry, how about the martyrs’ families? I can’t even imagine how they felt seeing the ones who murdered their kids, husbands, fathers and brothers being thanked by their pope? feels like a stab perhaps? I really don’t know!
Again, the pope should stay out of politics WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH!!! Let us build our country on our own without any kind of interference from priests of sheikhs! they have done enough for Mubarak and we did NOT exchange Mubarak for the SCAF so that they back the SCAF up like how they did with Mubarak. We will get to our goal sooner or later and all those who stood against the revolution will have a special black place in history!
