This is what happens when you put your pastor on the cleaning roster.
You have been warned.

From CNN’s belief blog.

Bethlehem, Israel (CNN) – Clergy from two Christian sects came to blows in the Church of the Nativity on Wednesday morning, prompting police to storm the Bethlehem holy site.
Several dozen Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests were cleaning the interior of the church Wednesday morning when, according to witnesses, two of them began fighting.
The fight quickly escalated, and soon, 50 to 60 priests were exchanging blows with broomsticks.

I know this is serious, but I can’t help laughing.
Some of my colleagues maintain that our denominational meetings get a bit unedifying.

Here’s a link to a report on the Daily Mail site, where I found these choice photos.

UPDATE:
Thanks to Nathan for the video heads up.
