Father Antonious shows his inked finger after casting his ballot in a constitutional referendum inside a polling station in Dalga village of Minya, Egypt, Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014. He is one of the priests of the Virgin Mary and St. Abraam Monastery that was looted and burned by supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in August. Through violence or intimidation, Islamists in villages like this one used violence or intimidation to stop Christians from voting "no" to a 2012 constitution that had paved the way for the creation of an Islamic state. This time around, no one is stopping the Christians and they are voting "yes" on a new charter that criminalizes discrimination and instructs the next legislature to ease restrictions on building churches.
