Things never change

Church of the Holy SepulchreAn update to another past part of my travels. When I was in Jerusalem, I posted about the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and how it is shared by several denominations of the Christian church. And how they don’t like each other very much. And how there have been fights in the past.

Well, it happened again yesterday. Apparently one of the Armenian priests decided that one of the Greek ones had spent too long near the tomb. So he kicked him out. And then things got out of hand.

I just like the image of worshippers fighting police off with palm fronds. It’s just mad.
