Copts have long complained of discrimination under successive Egyptian leaders and Sisi’s actions suggested he would deliver on promises of being an inclusive president who could unite the country after years of political turmoil. However, striking out at extremists abroad might prove easier than reining in radicals at home. Orthodox Copts, the Middle East’s biggest Christian community, are a test of Sisi’s commitment to tolerance, a theme he often stresses in calling for an ideological assault on Islamist militants threatening Egypt’s security.
A Coptic journalist has detailed her frustration living as a woman in an Egyptian society where men regularly treat Christian woman as whores, and shared ways in which the Coptic Church has also mistreated females.

The Bible Reformed Church, a place of worship located in China’s Guangdong province, again served as the target of a government break-in on Sunday.
Officials from the communist regime’s Food and Drug Administration as well as some members of the police were the ones who gained entry into the church, and upon doing so made arrests and questioned churchgoers.
Government officials checked the IDs of the people who were at the church at the time. They also sealed off the refrigerator and restricted access to a storage cabinet which contained utensils.
Pastor Huang Xiaoning was among the people taken into questioning by Chinese officials during the raid, and he detailed what happened during an interview with China Aid.
According to Huang, the service on July 15 had already begun when the Chinese officials entered the church. The arrival of the police and Food and Drug Administration employees prompted him to stop the service. Read more
