Reply To: How, if at all, did this course shape or change your perception of the ongoing Syrian Civil War?

Hi, Norman, thank you for sharing! I think you bring up an important consideration that we should think about regarding the position of Syrian Christians within the larger context of the Syrian Civil War. They have been put into a precarious position of wanting the country to be more free, fair, and prosperous, and having chosen to support a regime that grants them basic religious protections even if this regime is less than ideal. Hopefully, a wise leader who advocates for all religious groups and leads the country well will be established in Syria.
