U.S. Bishops press for religious freedom and more economic aid to Egypt

2013-08-27

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops called on U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to look after persecuted Christians in Egypt, while echoing Pope Francis calls for "peace, dialogue and reconciliation.”   

In a letter, written by Iowa Bishop Richard Pates, chairman for the USCCB Committee on Justice and Peace, they specifically show concern for Christian minorities in Egypt, as attacks by extremists against churches and Christians continue. 

But the letter goes a step further. The USCCB urged Kerry to work with the international community to protect Christians. It also asked the US government to maintain or increase humanitarian and economic aid to Egypt, to help "poor and vulnerable Egyptians.” 

Bishop Pates also praised Muslims who rushed to help and defend fellow Christians from attacks by Islam extremists.
