Early Christians in Egypt Worshiped “Seth, the Living Christ”; Scholars Scrutinize Their Book of Spells
Using magic, how can you subjugate a male enemy? Easy:
[Y]ou have to say a magical formula over two nails, and then “drive them into his doorpost, one on the right side (and) one on the left.”
This is the actual poster for Kirk Cameron‘s movie Saving Christmas:
It’s one of those cases where you can absolutely judge a book by its cover. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a pathetic score of 9%, with one critic saying it’s “one of the least artful holiday films ever made.” There’s also this takedown, which seems to perfectly encapsulate all things Cameron:
How do you prove a horse is an animal? Because I like Sweden. That’s the style of absurd logic that happens in “Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas”…

Last summer, a botched operation took the life of a 12-year-old Egyptian girl by the name of Sohair al-Bata’a. The man responsible has nothing to worry about professionally or legally, though.
The first doctor to be brought to trial in Egypt on charges of female genital mutilation (FGM) has been acquitted, crushing hopes that the landmark verdict would discourage Egyptian doctors from conducting the endemic practice. Raslan Fadl, a doctor and Islamic preacher in the village of Agga, northern Egypt, was acquitted of mutilating Sohair al-Bata’a in June 2013. …
Sohair’s father, Mohamed al-Bata’a, was also acquitted of responsibility. Police and health officials testified that the child’s parents had admitted taking their daughter to Fadl’s clinic for the procedure.
