Egyptian prelate airs concerns about Muslim Brotherhood victory

(Catholic Culture) — The Coptic Catholic bishop of Giza has expressed concerns for the future of Christians in Egypt if the Muslim Brotherhood emerges victorious in the nation’s elections.

“The Muslim Brothers say one thing then tomorrow they do another thing,” said Bishop Antonios Aziz Mina of Guizeh (Giza). “They don’t maintain their promises--that’s the problem.”

“Whoever will guarantee liberty and democracy and a good constitution for Egypt will have our vote,” he added. “He needs to guarantee the minimum of liberties we seek.”

Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, will face former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafik in a runoff election on June 16-17.
