"For Turks, religion is a private matter. Our republic is secular to the bone and will remain that way. Also, there is no such thing as "Moderate Islam" in our politics!

There are Turks of all faiths under our secular ruling system and this is how everyone lives in peace. Got it?"

You murdered father santoro, can you find me evidence that in our decadent european societies we murder your imams? Nope, never happened, we had many many imams preaching murder against us in mosques, they have been expelled, not murdered.

So as we can see your secular society brought murder and legitimation of the constant harassment of non-muslims. What's the difference between that and saudi arabia?

That turks consider religion as a private matter but still murder christians and agree with those who do it.

What a great country!

Repeat after me "they killed father santoro and did nothing to prevent it"
