Pope John Paul II to Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I: Hey, remember how we sacked you guys about 800 years ago when your city was known as Constantinople? Yeah, well, our bad.
Not that the leader of the world’s Orthodox Christians isn’t a bit tardy himself. Pope made his apology back in 2001 and the Patriarch just got around to accepting it. Still, three years beats the shit out of 800.
