Monk Mayhem

Dad was telling me last night about the fight in the church in Jerusalem, but it was only this morning that I got to see some of the footage. This is in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where groups of Greek Orthodox and Armenian monks clashed over processions and services in the church reputed to be on the site where Jesus was buried and resurrected.

See how these Christians love one another...

The whole thing makes me wonder what they were fighting about - is Christianity really just like any other religion with holy places? Surely if the 'earth is the Lord's' (Ps 24:1), then it doesn't matter where we meet - the Lord is present with us.
