A dispute between the leaders of the Orthodox Churches in Armenia and Georgia is apparently no closer to a resolution, after several days of talks about the issues.

From the article:
(Catholicos-Patriarch) Ilia insisted that the Armenian Church should gain official recognition in Georgia only if the Georgian Church is granted the same status in Armenia. (Catholicos) Karekin II countered that Armenia’s small ethnic Georgian community, numbering less than 1,000 people, never applied for such a status. He argued that Armenian law provides for the easy registration of religious minorities.

My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
