The headline is too enticing to ignore:
Priest ‘smashes chair’ over Italian restaurant owner’s head as nuns kick him in the stomach
What the heck…?
“I came down to try to calm things down but the priest hit me with a chair and I ended up on the floor. Then the two sisters started kicking me, insulting me with unrepeatable words,” the unnamed [restaurant] owner said in a statement.
He was taken to hospital with injuries to his neck and bruising to his abdomen.
A lawyer for the clergy disputed his version of events, noting that the nuns had “a combined age of 160″.
Apparently, they were arguing over the restaurant lease — the “Disciples of Santa Teresa and the Baby Jesus” own the property and want it back.

Turns out that’s not the only holy war breaking out.
Maybe we need some atheist referees in these areas to help keep the peace…
