The war on Christians is extending into Turkey

Turkey’s President Erdogan is already facing international calls to respect human rights in Turkey following last weekend’s failed coup. Now he’s also being encouraged to champion the rights of Christians living in the country as well. The call is coming from the Anglican Church’s venerable man in Istanbul, Canon Ian Sherwood, who for 28 years has been chaplain of the British consulate there and priest of the Crimean Memorial Church in the city. ‘As long-centuries established Christians in Turkey we are alarmed at how life is evolving in Turkey,’ says Sherwood, who warns that the climate of tolerance has changed in the country, which is more than 99 per cent Muslim, mainly Sunni. ‘We wish Turkey peace and tolerance – the same tolerance that most societies west of Turkey enjoy.’

  • Now that Erdogan is in the mood for purging, things will go swimmingly for Turkish Christians and by swimmingly, I mean they will have to flee (but to where?).

    I see the Hagia Sophia is now broadcasting the adhan. No doubt it will be closed to public viewing and turned into a mosque yet again. That would be a crime against humanity.
