Turkey’s Justice Minister made bizarre claims that Hagia Sophia’s origins are as a mosque.

The Justice Minister then explained that in the first week of July, a court hearing will be heard on whether the Hagia Sophia, currently a museum, should be converted into a mosque.

He revealed that the courts decision will be rendered within 15 days, suggesting that it is virtually predetermined that the court will rule that Hagia Sophia should be converted into a mosque.

Christ is in our midst!!

More Muslim fantasy. The thing that inflames them is asking what religion Mohammad practiced BEFORE he received is "revelations." Even more so when one brings up the list of things that people have gathered about his notorious lifestyle.

The mosque-ing of Hagia Sophia seems to be coinciding with the masking of America.

This is serious. Think about it.

I've thought and I'm still thinking about this one. Hagia Sophia was "mosqued" long before America was settled by Europeans. The venerable structure received museum status in more recent times. Would you explain the connection you perceive between the threatened reversal and the national and international response to a pandemic? Though plagued by all kinds of assaults and conquests, Rome and the Vatican have been a little luckier than poor Constantinople. Even old New York was once New Amsterdam. Such is life.
