Egyptian Copts Thankful for Morsi's Removal

Ad Feedback

Egypt's Coptic Christians are thankful for the military's overthrow of Mohammed Morsi.

Father Joseph Boules, who pastors an Orthodox Coptic church in Anaheim, Calif., said the uprising shows that Egyptians want religious freedom, not an Islamic state.

Boules was 13 when he emigrated from Egypt with his family. He said he is praying for peace in the country of his birth.

A California-based Muslim group also welcomed Morsi's removal from office.

"We rejoice and celebrate the victory of the Egyptian people against the exploitation of religion to suppress the masses and rob them of their God-given freedom and dignity," the Muslim Public Affairs Council said in a statement.
