Erdogan says Trump’s not holding Ramadan dinner casts doubt on U.S. support for freedom of religion

Erdogan says Trump’s not holding Ramadan dinner casts doubt on U.S. support for freedom of religion, by Robert Spencer.

What a hypocrite. Freedom of religion? … If Erdogan really believes in religious freedom, he could … recogniz[e] the right of Christians to live in Turkey. … He could maintain the Hagia Sophia as a museum, without continuing its reconversion into a mosque. Of course, if he really wanted to show his respect for the freedom of religion in a big way, he could give it back to the Christian community for use as a cathedral, with an apology for 450 years of persecution of the Christians under Ottoman and then secular Turkish rule.

How many churches are there in Saudi Arabia? None.
