It is competely shameful to fight at the place of the Birth of Our Lord. That these men profess to be followers of jesus makes me want to cry.

BETHLEHEM, Palestinian Territories – An unholy row erupted between Greek Orthodox and Armenian clergy on Wednesday over the cleaning of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, an AFP correspondent said.

Following Christmas celebrations, dozens of black-clad clerics from both churches, armed with brooms and cleaning materials, began to work on different parts of the church, built over the site where Jesus Christ is believed to have been born.

But an Armenian priest supervising the work thought that a broom held by a Greek Orthodox priest encroached on their space, and angry words swiftly became a fight.

Laughable, I say!

We have too much "holier than thou" and judgment of others in society for my taste.

What is really laughable is that it was called a fight between dogmas. That's like watching a white and an indian having a fight were I live. Here we say "They never did like each other" the City folks call it race based.

Go figure!

Sadly, such squabbles have been going on for eons, with the various groups fighting for control of holy spaces.
