A group of monk
eys attacked the Orthodox monastery at Mount Athos in Greece with crowbars and sledgehammers on Wednesday.
A group of rebel monks occupy the Esphigmenou monastery, and have been ordered out by the Greek Orthodox Church as well as the Greek courts, but they won’t go.
The rebel monks object, among other things, to the improvement of relations between the Orthodox Churches and the Catholic Church.

Methodius, the rebel abbott, said “They should be ashamed to call themselves men of the cloth.” Men of the cloth? More like monkeys.
