Tempers have been rising lately as indications increase that the Turkish government may be planning to turn the Hagia Sophia Cathedral back into a mosque.  The Ottomans had converted Eastern Orthodoxy's ranking cathedral into a mosque when they conquered Constantinople in 1453.  With the fall of the Ottoman empire, secular Turkey had converted the building into a museum.  The rumors that the increasingly Islamist regime in Turkey could turn the building back into a mosque is angering Orthodox Christians around the world.

Took seven years, but we can now remove the question mark. Although no Christian I share the dismay at this regressive move expressed in the article by the WCC and other bodies.
