It’s time to recognise ‘anti-Christianism’, says UK Coptic leader after Sri Lanka church attacks

By Christian Today

The head of the UK Coptic Orthodox Church has called on faith communities to make a joint stand against “anti-Christianism”.

Archbishop Angaelos made the appeal in the wake of horrific attacks on churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday in which at least 290 people died.

He said it was “time to act” and that “anti-Christianism” needed to be recognised as a “real phenomenon” alongside anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
