'Tis a puzzlement
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Egypt is very like the United States in terms of a generally "liberal" population and gun-toting, God-fearing fundamentalist believers. There the religious militias are resisting a coup against a legitimately elected government, and no one can say otherwise.

So, with the army backing the liberals and the people supporting the army, do the religious people in this country side with the pro-Morsi group – which hates and kills Christians — or with the liberals and against a religious majority? It seems a dilemma.
