    Hasan Cemal, the descendant of one of the major perpetrators to the Armenian genocide in Turkey, is apologizing as far as I can tell, ran across a stone in Switzerland re: Calvin "forgive our sins". All Turks are concentrating on Switzerland now. I can tell him Calvinism was responsible for manifest destiny, white man's burden and american exceptionalism in the USA. The Indians are the ones that suffered the most from this kind of thinking. Calvin was in Geneva. I doubt this theocrat would apologize for anything bigoted; however, go ahead Turkey and apologize to the Armenians and we can keep apologizing to each other for all our sins. However, I am sure bigots won't really apologize for their sins.
