Taleban.

Interesting. Looks like the Armenian Parliament is going ahead with Armen Ashotian's law to ban any religions but the Armenian Apostolic Church from preaching their faith. The main aim is to effectively ban churches like the Mormons, Evangelicals or the Mormons. As an unintended consequence, it's possible that they end up with banning the Molokans, Catholics or even the Holye See of Cilicia.
There will be excuses that the law will not ban anything and is there to regulate religion but it should be obvious that in Armenia laws are there to have an excuse to ban things that the governing bandits do not like: Ashotian is a representative of the ruling banditocracy (and probably the most foul mouthed one in the parliament).
On top of that, such a law is most probably unconstitutional but that does not matter either since the Constituion is not something that is followed nowadays.

Next you know, they will be blowing up non-apostolic churches and sending believers to Siberia...

What about all the assistance that comes to Armenia through those channels? Good time to put a stop to it too - during the depression...

to ban Holye See of FAKEilia would be a great bonus to Hayastan., that church and its followers are not real Armenian anyway. the real church is EJMIADZIN. that is the foundation of christianity in Hayastan, and even Komitas went there to be monk and wrote all the classical Armenian lituragies. he had option to go to FAKEilia, but chose Ej because he knew thats real Armenian church. anyway, FAKEilia follows assHOLEyrian doctorine, and is not in line with REAL ARMENIAN VALUES
