Situational Irony: Christianity In Bethlehem This Week
So, I found this pic on yahoo today: Greek and Armenian priests, cleaning up a Bethlehem church they share with Catholics, broke into an all-out broom war this week over who was cleaning whose part of the church.
The whole thing had to be broken up by Palestinian police, who are, presumably, Muslim.
The layers of irony here are just too much. It'd be hilarious if it weren't so petty and childish -- and sad.
(And this image just makes me think of Harry Potter. Maybe it was really students fighting at Hogwarts and Dumbledore had to break it up.....)
