    I want to make a thread for the Coptic Church and it's sister Church in Ethiopia - The Tawahedo Orthodox Church.

    The Coptic Church is a Egyptian Arab Christian church that has it's origins in the waning days of pagan Egypt and up to the present day. The churches are arranged akin to the Coptic and the similar style of liturgical practice makes the two almost complement each other.

    For those of you who are Reggae fans - the Tawahedo Church is also a Christian church and the greatest influence on Rastafari Movement theology. The Rastafari Movement is the Christian inspired-yet-heretical movement that worships Ras Tafari (Prince Tafari) or Haille Sellassie as the second coming of Jesus.

    *Edited to change some of the weird sentences and words to more familiar words and sentence structure.

    What distinguishes Coptics from other Christians is the act of fighting dragons...

    ...who who get regularly raped by the muslims there. You don't see that happening to the eastern orthodox, but otherwise pretty much true.
