In Armenia, she said, she was raped, brutalized and incarcerated for practicing transcendental meditation. She said she was forced out of her country and branded a heretic. In America, as a refugee hoping for religious asylum, Armine is dismissed as a liar.

International chieftains of the Armenian Church, once sharply at odds, say both the tribulation of the devastating earthquake and a joint trip to the United States strengthened the brotherly ties between them. But in the church's U.S. branch, strains of a prolonged split still showed. Tendencies also appeared on one side here to minimize the high-level calls to unity.
