I Smell “Reality Show”!

In what is becoming regular enough for a pay-per-view event, the monks are back to brawling in Jerusalem:

Israeli police rushed into one of Christianity’s holiest churches Sunday and arrested two clergyman after an argument between monks erupted into a brawl next to the site of Jesus’ tomb.

The clash between Armenian and Greek Orthodox monks broke out in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, revered as the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, burial and resurrection.

The brawling began during a procession of Armenian clergymen commemorating the 4th-century discovery of the cross believed to have been used to crucify Jesus.

Just a reminder that all of that violence you see between Shi’a and Sunni Moslems today was pretty normal between the 53 flavors of Christianity between 500-1000 years ago.
