I'm no theological scholar, but I don't think Our Lord and Saviour would be terribly impressed by the fact that fisticuffs broke out at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

Police forces were called in to separate Franciscans and Greek Orthodox priests after they got into a fight over who would open the door of the church.

I seem to recall something about "love one another as I have loved you" and "turn the other cheek" in the New Testament. I missed the part about pounding the piss out of one another in order to settle a dispute about doors.
