EGYPT - As the Yes campaign is set to win referendum, Catholic Church spokesman calls it "a vote against Islamism and Sharia" [AN]


Unofficial results indicate that the Yes won 98 per cent of the vote in at least 25 districts. Turnout tops 55 per cent. Women turnout is also up. Christians cast their ballot despite Islamist attacks and threats. For Egyptian Catholic Church spokesman Fr Greich Rafiq, if the new constitution is not implemented, “we shall find ourselves with yet another odd text useful only to stock bookshelves.”



It is about time Christians get a break some where. It will take time.
