Turkish EU Minister visits an Assyrian Orthodox Church
« on: May 16, 2011, 08:16:22 PM »
Egemin Bagis, Turkish state minister for the European Union, today visited the Virgin Mary Assyrian Orthodox Church in Beyoglu.

From the article:
Quote
Metropolitan Bishop of the Assyrian Orthodox Church Yusuf Cetin said that representatives of all political parties visited the church ahead of the general elections.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

Are we talking about the Aramaean/Syriac Orthodox here?

Sorry - we are busy bulldozing closed Christian churches to eradicate the Armenian and Orthodox Christian heritage of Turkey, but you can see from this tokenism that Turkey has 'changed' ( NOT AT ALL)

Yeah, it's Suryoyo, not Assyrian/Chaldean.
