No telephone confession in Egypt for fear of secret police listening

Egypt's Coptic pope has banned his church members from confessing their sins to priests over the telephone because intelligence agents might be listening in, a newspaper reported on Friday.
"Confessions over the telephone are forbidden, because there is a chance the telephones are monitored and the confessions will reach state security," the independent Al-Masri Al-Yom quoted Pope Shenuda III as saying.

Nice to be  a Christian in Egypt?
