Too bad there weren't a few Shaolin monks in there. It could have been PPV.

Sheesh - one of them flashed the gang sign of the cross and all heck broke loose.

You have to be careful of showing your "colors" in the church, too.

Why were they cleaning anyway? Everyone knows you can't polish a pew.
Or is that you can't polish a poo? Or is that you can't call the Pope Polish?

Why did the Chechen cross the road?


had it been nuns, instead of priests, we'd be watchin' video right now.

or so I suspect.

Wyo, I'm pretty sure that the Nun Jello Wrestling took place at least an hour before the church service. No one starts a riot until after the pre-service show.

Hmm.... something similar also happened in Antarctica... http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,,2232455,00.html

Kev's link

So much for peace on earth, goodwill to men.

Oh, and of course on Kev's link, alcohol was involved.

Interesting bit of trivia. The area was found by a nun assigned to develop Bethlehem for pilgrimages. At the time, there were just as many fights.
She took the best evidence she could find. The truth be told the city had undergone some rebuilding projects so she couldn't find everything. Even the place where the church is founded has some skepticism about it.
So yes, the Nun arrived earlier.

Palestinian police, armed with batons and shields, quickly formed a human cordon to separate the two sides so the cleaning could continue, then ordered an Associated Press photographer out of the church.

Maybe it is peace on earth, for a little while, Diva.

If this is considered the birthplace of Jesus you'd think it wouldn't need a lot of cleaning other than a dusting now and then. Did Cousin Eddie Griswold and his family blow through Bethlehem and leave a bunch of 16oz Bud empties laying around on the floor?

they should have let some rabble-rousin rabbis in there. ... now that would have made the wwf. they LOOK harmless with the hats and stuff, but, those dudes are tough.

Can't that find a nice Arab cleaning service?

Turn about is fair play - notice the Palestinians 'restored order.'

Oh, fer Chri .... er, guess not.

My sister and I had such religious arguments over our room too when we were little.
