Monkfights: A Cause For Concern

| Disqus Comments

The last 2000 years or so, in microcosm.

The 6th Century holy site [the Church of the Nativity, believed to be on the site of Jesus’ birthplace] is jointly administered by the Latin, Orthodox and Armenian churches, with each fiercely guarding their turf against encroachment from the rival sects.

Bethlehem police Lieutenant-Colonel Khaled al-Tamimi said order was quickly restored and such scuffles between the rival clergy occur every year. “No one was arrested because all those involved were men of God,” he explained.

For the Xtreme version, you will have to visit Greece. (Males only, please.)

And all this without material inducements. Christian love appears to be sufficient, in fact, to get these battling brothers a-brawling. How would Jesus do?
