Nativity, WTF

Unholy dust-up at Nativity church

Once again, our War on Christmas is put to shame. Our Nativity battles are minor league compared to this:

...Members of rival Christian orders have traded blows at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, with four people reported wounded in the fray...Reports say some Orthodox faithful encroached on the Armenian section, prompting pitched battles with brooms...

Brooms! How very Wiccan of them! Now try to visualize this scene in your mind:

...police formed a human cordon to separate the battling dark-robed and bearded priests and deacons, said to number about 80...

US Dominionists are really slacking off. Then again, maybe they had a hand in it:

...One report says the dispute started when the Greek Orthodox contingent wanted to place a ladder over the Armenian portion...

Hmm, ladders!
