Pope Francis declared about the recognition of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire during his visit to Armenia

42
During his official visit to Yerevan, Pope Francis, as head of the Vatican and the entire Roman Catholic Church, once again made it clear that he recognized the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. During one of his speeches, Francis said:
This tragedy, this genocide, unfortunately, marked the beginning of the sad series of major disasters of the last century.


After that, the head of the Catholic Church, together with representatives of the Armenian clergy, visited the ancient monastery of Khor Virap, symbolizing the adoption of Christianity by Armenia, and released pigeons in the direction of Mount Ararat, which is now in Turkish territory. This is reported by the Armenian information resource. News.am.



From the German newspaper Tagesspiegel:
Until recently, it was unclear whether the Pope would utter the word "genocide". This word was not used in the official text of his speech, but on the very first day of his visit to Armenia, Francis used this term and called upon the world to never forget about the Armenian genocide.


Attention to this speech by the Pope was so great because last year Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, after Francis first used the word "genocide" in relation to events in the Ottoman Empire against Armenians, announced the "mistake" made by the head RCC. Erdogan then stated:
I hope that such mistakes will never happen again.


Francis, visiting Armenia, made it clear that he did not make any reservations or mistakes.

The Armenian authorities turned to the head of the RCC with the request to declassify all documents relating to the Armenian Genocide by the Turks during the First World War.

In Turkey, the use of the word “genocide” by the Pope and the requests of official Yerevan to the Vatican caused a storm of negativity. The softest comments from Turkish politicians and representatives of the press spoke about the statement of Francis as “the position of the crusaders”. That was the phrase used by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Turkish Government Nureddin Janikli in his speech.

Recall that not so long ago the German parliament recognized the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire.

      It's time, 100 years have passed. The injustice of the condemnation of Galileo in 1992 was admitted to be nearly 360 years old. Until this time, the Catholics had the sun revolving around the earth, and the earth was motionless.

And Giordano Bruno turned out to be by no means a great scientist and was burned not at all for his "discoveries", which he shamelessly plagiarized, but for his active participation in Satanism, debauchery and other bad deeds

          And he (the pope) recognized the buggers and urges to ask for forgiveness from the buggers.

          So, from now on we can officially call Europeans pederasts. And this is not some kind of name-calling, but quite the official name of this "civilization", approved by their "spiritual" leader.

          It turns out that liberalists who appeal to European values ​​are called, including pederasty.
          So who are they?

          We did not listen to this dad before, and now even more so.

            An article on the recognition by the pope of the Ottoman genocide of Armenians, not Europeans, and even more so these. The Turks must ask for forgiveness from the Armenians.

          What "sexual" relation does this writer have to the rehabilitation of Galileo Vinchezo Galilei? The process was started by Pope John Paul II (in the world Karol Wojtylla), as it were, almost simultaneously with the entry of our troops into Afghanistan and ended, as it were, in 1992. Created by "papyzhniki" THEY also canceled. In your case, erudition is good if reason is attached to it.

    There was nothing to slaughter Armenians, then there would not have to be indignation. Heads cut, a lot of mind is not necessary, then you have to disentangle for a long time .., which we observe. The Turks have exhausted their already not beautiful history.
