    Greeks and Armenians getting in a fight? No way…we’re lucky the Russians weren’t there or hell, the melee probably would have brought down the old church.

  3. say what says

    well historically it was once a shrine to Adonis-Tammuz but the early church bishops instead of using their brains decided the Adonis-Tammuz worshipers took over the Jesus shrine

    Chicken before the egg

    as vs reality

    was a shrine to Adonis- Tammuz and xtians took it over and slapped a Jewish face on the savior gawd

    egg before the chicken

    This is nothing new at all. In fact, it was a fight much like this that led the runup to the Crimean War in the 1850’s. Read THE CRIMEAN WAR: A HISTORY, by Orlando Figes. From a fight among “Christians” over which church got possession of a key to some of Jerusalem’s holy sites to the horrible botches and blunders and privations of 3 years of murderous fighting, this grand book reveals a fascinating tale. And, as the news item shows, some things never change.

    I’ve got it. This is the precursor to a new reality TV show, possibly on, say, the Catholic Channel or Trinity Broadcasting Network: “Christian Pugilists’ Smackdown”. I can see it now, brothers and sisters, nuns v. nuns, ministers v. ministers, monks v. monks, and, let’s not forget, priests v. (you fill in the blank). Could be a real ratings winner.

    Would rather have a broom to the head than a suicide bomb in the a crowd any day…At least Christian arguments are laughable.

    ACTUALLY……JESUS( REAL NAME YESHUA….AND AFRICAN NAME….GOOGLE IT) WAS –NOT— BORN THERE!! HE WAS BORN IN EASTERN AFRICA,…ETHIOPIA…..IN A TEMPLE THERE…..YOU CAN SEE THE ANCIENT SCRIPTS SPEAKING OF HIM!! THIS SAYING HE WAS BORN IN THE FICTITIOUS…..MADE UP “ISRAEL”…IS AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE HIM “WHITE”

    If you actually believe that the “MAN” jesus was born there, you are nuttier than those empty headed priests.

    Religion is the WORST evil that has ever been created…and anyone who adopts it’s looney messages deserves to live the life of opression it offers. Congrats. Enjoy it.

    Do we really expect anything more from people who believe a man made book that was meant to be a fairy tale, but turned into something serious because some people REALLY wanna believe they’ll go somewhere pretty, and fluffy with clouds when they die? Religion breeds crazy. Spread the good word.

    LOL! They were just showing Christian love for one another. The same kind of love they have been showing us for years.

    How bad is it when the Palestinian Authority has to “restore order” in your church?

  12. jamal49 says

    @SHANNON Shocked anyone here might know that! So much of Yeshua has been corrupted by the orthodoxy of the Jesus myth. A fascinating history that maybe 1% actually know. Fantastic!

    Religion has caused more misery to all of mankind in every stage of human history than any other single idea.

    This has nothing to do with religion, but rather another venue to work out old prejudices, grudges and hatreds. Greeks vs. Armenians, case closed. That’s it. And no, these aren’t Catholics, they’re Orthodox and Non-Chalcedonians. People want to so bad to trash talk religion that they fail to see what’s really going on. Religion simply isn’t as important as y’all think it is.

    Over 100 Priests fighting with each other, in the most holy of churches, The Bethlehem Church Of The Nativity!?! … Did someone throw a naked alter-boy in the middle of them?
