So, it is Vagharshapat now?!!
You mean Resurrection Resurrection-ian?
Maybe now he may be resurrected as the human that he was meant to be.
His Holiness, should “defrock” all those “frogs” who have been “croaking” all those inintelligible “croakings” for much too long. And in the meantime, maybe He should learn how to dress like the rest of us , never mind all that pagan wardrobe, and be part of us.

Religion is the root of all evil. How much blood has been shed in the name of God! What a sick joke.
Armenia is not immune to this. Our nobles massacred millions of our own in the 9th to 11th centuries and thus opened up our lands to the invaders who now hold them.

...Haroutiunian.


How do you spell “irony” in Armenian?

The Armenian version is a little clearer, yet, even then we don’t know when the “divorce” happened.

Catholicos Garegin II’s Personal Assistant Defrocked
[ 2011/03/04 | 13:19 ] society
Catholicos Garegin II, Supreme Patriarch of the Armenian Apostolic Church, issued a directive today to defrock Father Ktridj Devechian, an American-Armenian priest who served as personal assistant to the church leader.
Father Ktridj (Armen Devechian) had requested that he be allowed to leave the laity due to his recent divorce. The priest had been sent to Calcutta, India, to oversee the troubled Armenian Philanthropic Academy. An architect by profession, Father Ktridj had been married to an Armenian woman from Fresno, California
