Warring monks at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre

11Nov08

This is too funny to not mention, especially since I was just there a few days ago.

Last week, I came across this article about how the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is used by many Christian denominations and that there’s an uneasy truce between them. Read it; it’s hilarious!

BTW, here’s a picture with the ladder on the second floor right window. The odd thing is there’s a metal railing only on the right window, but not on the left one. Could it be that someone actually put in the railing to prevent the ladder from falling back and hitting someone on the ground, rather than removing the ladder? That would be too much if it were true. Click on the image for a closer view.

Anyway, today, my coworker tells me that a brawl actually broke out at the Church on Sunday. I missed an actual fight by a day! Here’s the article, and video, on that news.

As funny as it is, it’s sad too, because even within the same religion, there’s no peace. What chance is there among different religions…?
