Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's resignation Friday is good for the country's Coptic Christians, according to a religious freedom expert.

Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman read a short statement Friday saying that Mubarak had "decided to leave his position as president" and hand over control to Egypt's powerful Armed Forces Supreme Council.

Mubarak has reportedly left Cairo to his home in Sharm el-Sheik, according to the New York Times.

"I think Mubarak's resignation is a good thing for Coptic Christians, and other Egyptians. If he had not done so, there would likely have been riots and violence and a descent into chaos," said Paul Marshall, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute's Center for Religious Freedom in Washington, D.C., to The Christian Post.

one of the things that dictators are good at is keeping the lid on decades upon decades of ethnic and religious hatreds.  once the lid comes off, the results are unpredictable.  see: bosnia.

No one knows the future of Egypt.  One thing I do know for sure, the road is not paved smooth...there are I am sure, some Pittsburgh potholes ahead, and perhaps a Burma Road or two or three.

Time will tell.
