From the article: "It is expected six faith groups to open stalls where visitors can learn more about the religious groups’ beliefs and practices.

Those to be represented are the Bulgarian Orthodox Church, the Muslim religion, the religious community of Jews in Bulgaria, the Armenian Apostolic Church, the Roman Catholic exarchate and the Evangelical Alliance Bulgaria."

This is good news for me. There is a tendency to push hard against competition, particularly Roman Catholic and Protestant, in majority-Orthodox nations. The Bulgarian Church seems to have shed that fatal weakness.

The Jews are only going to target other Jews, and I seriously doubt the Armenians are going to try to "steal sheep."
