The status quo may be about to change at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, after more than a century of petty jealousy and bickering among the three denominations that claim it as the site of Christ’s tomb. At a joint news conference, representatives of the Greek Orthodox, Armenian Apostolic and Roman Catholics agreed to go forward with $3.5 million in repairs to keep the structure from falling down on their heads. The work will start after Orthodox Easter in May, and each church will (naturally) appoint its own architect – so that they can do the arguing and fistfighting instead of the monks.
