Pope gets it right on Turkish genocide of Armenians

"Who after all speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?" Adolf Hitler, August 22, 1939.

Luckily the Pope spoke out on it today. And predictably the Turks are having a snit over it.

From the BBC:
Turkey has recalled its envoy to the Vatican after Pope Francis described the mass killing of Armenians under Ottoman rule in WW1 as "genocide".

Turkey has reacted with anger to the comment made by the Pope at a service in Rome earlier on Sunday.

Armenia and many historians say up to 1.5 million people were killed by Ottoman forces in 1915.
