CATCH IN A CHURCH
You see here the Church of the Holy Sepulchre which is located in the old part of Jerusalem. It is said to also contain the place where Jesus was buried. The church has been an important pilgrimage destination since at least the 4th century, as the purported site of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. (you can read more about it here)
Doesn't it look like a peaceful place for pilgrims to go and pray ?
and then look at what happened on Sunday !
it's commented in french, but you don't need comments for understanding !
Greek religious and armenians fought with each other using the holy candles and their fists to hit each other ! It was almost a "Catch" show, and the poor policemen had a hard work to separate the fighters !
It looks like a very funny video and honnestly I laughed until I cried.
But it is a real shame and it is difficult to find words for this behaviour in such a religious place !
Poor Jesus !
