Fighting Christians

without comments

Lest Christianity get too haughty about its peaceful nature, I hasten to point out it wasn’t that long ago that Ireland was fraught with intra-Christian fighting (though one could argue if it was really a theological difference). To that end, there are still fist-fights between denominations in Israel apparently.

Israeli police had to break up a fist fight that erupted between Greek and Armenian Orthodox clergymen at one of Christianity’s holiest sites.
The scuffles broke out at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem on Orthodox Palm Sunday.
Brawls are not uncommon at the church, which is uneasily shared by various Christian denominations.
