'You Are Finished!' Threaten Vandals Against Church in Turkey

Wednesday, February 27, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , , , , ,

(Worthy News) - International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that on Sunday, February 23, 2019, threatening graffiti messages were found on the main entrance door of the Armenian Church of the Holy Mother of God (Balat Surp Hreshdagabet) in Istanbul, Turkey. According to a statement issued by the Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople, “There were written racist and hate speeches in both English and Arabic [saying] you are finished!”

The church’s security cameras obtained footage of the incident and the church administration filed a criminal complaint at the Fatih District Police Department. The statement continued, “It is our greatest wish that such events do not happen again and the criminals are punished.”

The incident has drawn widespread condemnation from across Turkey’s Armenian community, who are frequently harassed and targeted through hate crimes. The Armenian Genocide from 1915-1917 continues to haunt those few who remain in Turkey, as both nationalists and Islamists view Armenians as an inherent threat to the constitutionally protected status of Turkishness.

  1. BLASPHEMY!

    And if Worthy's "Contact Us" page was working, I'd have told them first, and as privately as can be done.

    I know George knows better than this, to allow this as "Christian" news article that's about a Church named "the Armenian Church of the Holy Mother of God."

    Holy God!

    How dare they post up this piece of persecution of a worldwide (Armentian) cult as if it somehow has to do with the persecution of Christians. A Mariologist is never a Christian. At best, a Mariologist (someone who worships, "venerates" and/or adores Mary, the mother of Jesus/Y'shua) is "double-minded." And we know what our Bibles say about "doubled minded" people, it says:

    James 1:8 (ESV)
    "he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways"

    Meanwhile, who posted on Worthy News, of Christian Persecution, when The First Baptist Church of Clarkston, WA, was painted (on the driveway side of the building) with satanic stuff, esp a huge red 666, back in 1983. Oh, you'd have had to have been the Janitor back then to know that? These things happen, and have happened, in the USA all the time, but Worthy News posts the same in 2019, only, because it happened to a "Church" of "the Mother of God" as if there ever was a "mother of" our God? There was the Son of God, the Word of God, born to a (yes, holy) woman. That God existed long before he created the woman.

    It's BLASPHEMY, and dangerously close to the unforgivable sin.

    Take heed!

    Repent.
