Monk Fight (again)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/7718587.stm

Fighting erupted between Greek Orthodox and Armenian monks at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the traditional site of Christ’s crucifixion.

You seriously couldn’t make this stuff up.

Shocked pilgrims looked on as decorations and tapestries were toppled during Sunday’s clash.

Dressed in the vestments of the Greek Orthodox and Armenian denominations, rival monks threw punches and anything they could lay their hands on.

So much for the message of loving thy neighbour or turning the other cheek.

The Daily Mash has an amusing twist on the story.

  1. It is wrong to enjoy reading the Daily Mesh as much as I do?

    I wonder how many Monks it takes to topple a tapestry?

  2. Perp, it has become my main source for headline grabbing news now. I look at the Daily Mash and the lies and twisted facts in the tabloids just seem that much sillier rather than bigotted nonsense. In fact I’m going there now.
