Or more accurately, a war between the traditional date of Christmas and the Greek Orthodox celebration of Christmas, which is in early January. And the war was between Greek and Armenian priests who were cleaning the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.
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.
I wonder how many of them were turning the other cheek and being peacemakers so they would be blessed? #thingsthatJesussaidthatChristiansignore
