Priest-Fight with Broomsticks in Bethlehem
Religion in full effect: In der Geburtskirche in Bethlehem, der angeblichen Geburtsstätte Jesus’, haben sich 50 Priester mit Besen verkloppt. Irre, alles Irre.
Clergy from two Christian sects came to blows in the Church of the Nativity on Wednesday morning, prompting police to storm the Bethlehem holy site.
Several dozen Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests were cleaning the interior of the church Wednesday morning when, according to witnesses, two of them began fighting.
The fight quickly escalated, and soon, 50 to 60 priests were exchanging blows with broomsticks.
