"Cultural genocide" against the Armenian medieval churches and monasteries (in the form of its repair), carried out during his stay on the throne. The corruption of the clergy, which threatens the future of the Armenian Church. A huge barrier between church and people, which weakens the church encouraging the activities of the various sectarian organizations. Distrust and disrespect for the church formed in peoples minds. unnatural and doubtful "brotherhood" between church and state. The involvement of the church in the world of business".
