The Armenian Genocide is a very contentious issue for the Turks, who deny it ever happened, and get very angry whenever anyone makes mention of it. That’s probably why they’re suddenly demanding the Vatican send an envoy over after Pope Francis came out and said it was the first genocidal act of the 20th century.
That was yesterday, and this morning we’re greeted with this news:
BREAKING: Official: Turkey summons Vatican envoy after Pope calls Armenian killings genocide.

I picture a scene of the “300” movie, where Vatican viceroys call the Turkish demands “madness” and Erdogan yells, “madness?!?! THIS! IS! TURKEYYYYY!!!” and then kicks them down a well. That’s totally how it’s gonna go down.
Also, Erdogan is probably the anti-Christ. Probably.
