Coptic and Evangelical Christians in Egypt Begrudgingly Choose Shafiq

Old Regime vs Islamists is the choice Egyptian Christinas have to make; a turning point in Syria as France kicks out Syrian diplomat; an offensive picture about Saudi women, or not; and Lebanon's silent killer is in most homes.
What options do Christians have as a minority in Egypt, a Muslim majority country having their first elections? The Islamist or the Old Regime. Who did they choose?
"The majority of Copts voted for Shafik, according to Mina el-Badry, an evangelical pastor in Upper Egypt. “Not from love, but to oppose the Islamists,” he said, “because [Shafik] is from the army and will know how to run the transition, and because he is clear and firm in his word and decision.”"
"More condemnation, meetings and denials after the Houla massacre in Syria, but the expulsion of Syrian diplomats from several Western countries is the most concrete development that these countries have taken against Assad's regime.
It's not a moment too soon, and should have happened months ago, so what has changed?"
