CAIRO -- Egypt's official news agency says the country's Coptic Church is withdrawing from a committee to draft the nation's new constitution.

The state news agency MENA reported Monday that the church called its participation "futile" under the current makeup of the panel, dominated by Islamists.

Out of 100 committee members, only two were chosen from the church among six Christians.

I'm not surprised. Unfortunately, we all see where Egypt is headed. God bless and protect those faithful.
