Are you r-r-r-ready to r-r-rumble?!

From the Concord Monitor:

The police posted a guard yesterday outside a chapel at an Orthodox monastic sanctuary in Thessaloniki, Greece, where rebel monks remained barricaded following clashes that left seven people injured.

Wednesday's violence involved rival groups of monks carrying crowbars and sledgehammers - and is part of a long-standing dispute between legally recognized monks and a rebel monastery that opposes efforts by the Orthodox Church to improve relations with the Vatican.

. . .

Video footage recorded by cell phone, and broadcast on Greek television, showed monks using sledgehammers to try to break into the compound. The rebel monks repelled the intruders with crowbars and fire extinguishers.

Three rebel monks who were detained by the police after receiving hospital treatment Wednesday were freed on the orders of a public prosecutor. Five others remained inside the compound yesterday.

Comments

Seems to me these monks need to work out some kind of exchange program with their Shaolin counterparts.

That way, they could hone their martial arts skills, and not have to use hammers and crowbars. Plus, they could learn to do neat stuff like run up the walls of buildings and fight on the rooftops in midair.
We'd pay to see THAT!!!!

Man, these guys don't fool around, do they?!!
