Egyptian Pastor: Egypt's Going Back to the Dark Ages

Ad Feedback

Thousands of protesters battled on the streets outside of the presidential palace in Cairo Thursday night, demanding President Mohammed Morsi be removed from office for seizing too much power.

Mori's supporters fought back and six people were killed and nearly 700 injured.

The violence brings back memories of the revolution that happened only two years ago when Egyptians overthrew then-President Hosni Mubarak.

"He has become, like, you think you didn't like Mubarak? This is worse than Mubarak," activist and filmmaker Nadia Kamal said.

Morsi refuses to give up absolute power. In a nationally televised speech Thursday night he refused to retract the disputed constitution drafted by his allies.

Dr. Michael Youssef, senior pastor of The Church of the Apostles in Atlanta, was born in Egypt and moved to the United States in the 1970s.

Youssef spoke with CBN News about what Christian leaders in Egypt have been telling him about their concerns and the issues they have with the Islamist-dominated draft Constitution. Click play to watch.
