when news is now news

For years Christians have been and are being killed overseas because of their religious beliefs. Since this is not broadcast on the major networks it is not news. In the last week or so, major news networks have drawn attention to the killing of Christians, the burning of churches and the burning of sacred texts. The Coptic Christians, or "Copts," are of one of the oldest church bodies of Christianity. In the last week or so, this has become a news story. We look beyond our coexistent reality and our emphasis on the religion of peace and see what is really going on.
