This is a developing story and we don’t have much solid detail at present. There’ll be conflicting reports for the next several hours, I fear. Stay tuned…

I got this from one of the Cabinet:

I found out today that one of the martyrs was not a Copt, but rather Eastern Orthodox, perhaps from Kenya or Ghana, of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria.

That’s all that I have… I’ll get back to youse guys when I have more.

Holy New Coptic Martyrs of Libya (15 February)… Heroes of the Orthosphere

00 Holy New Martyrs of Libya. 2015

______________________________

The Coptic Patriarchate of Alexandria and all Africa proclaimed the 21 Coptic men beheaded by terrorists martyrs. Their feastday is 15 February. However, do NOT jump into a Fox News-like hatred of all Muslims. Trust me, most are as aghast at this as we are. The Copts are part of the Orthosphere… blood of our blood, bone of our bone. Light a candle in their memory… we’re Christians, that’s what we do…
