"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Al-Rahi Holds more Consultations on Christian Posts, Presidency- Naharnet

Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi met on Tuesday with more Christian cabinet ministers with the aim of taking action against the alleged marginalization of Christians in state institutions.
Al-Rahi held separate talks with Telecommunications Minister Butros Harb and Minister of the Displaced Alice Shabtini in Bkirki.
“It is time for the presidential candidates to think about the country and head to parliament so that the democratic game takes its course,” said Harb after his meeting with the patriarch.
Harb also said that there should be a balance in the country's institutions.
Al-Rahi met last week with several other Christian ministers after growing complaints that Christian posts were being given to Muslim civil servants.
