The Turks, today's Turks, cannot continue to deny their own sordid history, especially when their attitudes today haven't really changed.[/quote]
Yes they can, and in fact, under Turkey's "Article 301"
it is illegal not
to deny their sordid past. Even today as I write this, a Turkish born Professor of the University of Arizona is waiting to stand trail under "Article 301" for daring to mention the Armenian Genocide in a book (see this report from today's news
Article 301 is being used by the Turkish Nationalists to prevent Turkey from entering the EU and to distance Turkey from the West. It has also been used to further oppress the Church in Turkey by silencing any protest.
Remember what Hitler said to encourage his commanding officers a week before the invaion of Poland? After instructing them to kill all Poles, men women and children, he concluded by assuring them: "Who remembers the extermination of the Armenians today?"
.......unfortunately, he was right.......
So combine Article 301 with the West "turning a blind eye" to the extermination of the Church in Turkey, and you have the perfect recipe for a complete genocide and the utter destruction of the Church of Constantinople.....which will also be forgotten by the rest of the world in some dust-covered history book which no one will read for decades......
But the Church's true
City -the Heavenly Jerusalem- no one
can take from Her!
