Dr. Anthony J. Limberakis, National Commander of the Order of Saint Andrew the Apostle, recently wrote: “On July 9, 2019, the Turkish Twitter site Turkey.Home, which invites people to ‘Discover Turkey,’ tweeted: ‘2019 is the “Year of Göbeklitepe,” the spot of the world’s first religious complex that changed history of humanity forever.’ The Order of Saint Andrew the Apostle, Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, deplores this hypocrisy: Turkey has been responsible for the destruction of thousands of Orthodox Christian religious complexes, and is therefore the last country that should be celebrating archaeological sites of ancient religious installations….The Order calls upon the Turkish government to be consistent and show its pride in its religious heritage not just at Göbeklitepe, but by recognizing its rich Orthodox Christian history, easing its restrictions on the Ecumenical Patriarchate, reopening the Halki Seminary, and providing redress to the Ecumenical Patriarchate and to the Christians whose roots are in Asia Minor for the tens of thousands of Christian sites through Turkey that successive Turkish governments destroyed and obliterated.”
