Pope on visit to Armenia cites 'genocide', likely to anger Turkey | Reuters

YEREVAN Pope Francis departed from his prepared text on Friday to use the word "genocide" to describe the mass killings of Armenians in 1915, a description that infuriated Turkey when he said it a year ago. In an address to Armenia's president and the diplomatic corps, Francis used the Armenian term 'Metz Yeghern' (the great evil), but then added to his prepared text "that genocide" to refer to what he also called "the first of the deplorable series of catastrophes of the past century". There was no immediate reaction from Turkey, which last year recalled its ambassador to the Vatican after the pope used the 'genocide' term #Business #Islam #Europe #Africa #United Kingdom #Christianity #article

VATICAN CITY Pope Francis on Friday called for a Church that was less strict and more compassionate towards "imperfect" Catholics, such as those who divorced and remarried, saying "no one can be condemned forever".
