A controversial movie still in production about a Coptic Christian woman in Egypt who has a baby out of wedlock after the church’s refusal to grant her a divorce has come under fire from Coptic activists who are seeking to ban the movie for insulting Christianity. Coptic lawyer and activist Nabil Ghobrial warned in an official filing Monday that the Coptic church would sue those involved in the film as well as governmental authorities if production was not halted or the film censored.
But brothers, wait! You are so often suffering from the government's censorship. Why now ask for its application! I really do not think the Copts are wise to do this. Much better, they shoud demand a total lifting of all censorship. That is the direction Arab countries should go. Not backward into asking the government to function as the thought-police.
