Editor's Note: Father Jonathan just returned to New York after a trip to Turkey, and has published portions of his diary written during that trip. In light of the recent torturing and killing of three Christians in Turkey, he went to investigate the real status of religious liberty there and how the upcoming parliamentary and presidential elections (July 22) could affect the struggle between two distinct visions for Turkey’s political future: Islamist or secular.
