Arab Christians in America

Elesha Coffman has a good piece in Christianity Today Magazine about the opportunities and challenges of Arab Christians in America. A lot of Americans don't realize that most Arab-Americans are Christian; they assume they're all Muslim.

The reality, though, is that it's the religious minorities who are more likely to leave their home country, and most of the Russians in Portland are Evangelical, and most of the Arabs in America are Christian of one variety or another.

(Oh, yeah, and most of the guys wearing turbans are Sikhs, neither Muslim nor Christian.)
