(Breaking) ISIS Executes 30 Christians on Videotape

February 16, 2015

CNN is reporting a new video tape released today showing the beheading of at least 30 Christians. Isis declares they were all Copt Christians.

The Copts are one of the oldest Christian communities in the Middle East. Although integrated in the larger Egyptian nation, the Copts have survived as a distinct religious community forming around 1020% of the population, though estimates vary. They pride themselves on the apostolicity of the Egyptian Church whose founder was the first in an unbroken chain of patriarchs. The main body for 16 centuries has been out of communion with both the Roman Catholic Church (in Rome) and the various Eastern orthodox churches.
