    The less the church leaders keep their blessed noses out of politics- the better. (That’s strictly my opinion)

      This is the new era for Armenia, let’s concentrate on our country, our future plans towards technological development, united national movement where political and religious differences have no place (and we know how deconstructive they were over the last 100 years). We all are Armenians and that’s it, no matter what religion or political orientation we have.
      Long live Armenia

    Pashinyan must not forget that the Arminian Church is the symbol of unity. That is why he must support the Armenian Church.
