When the congregation at St. Nicolay church in this northern Israeli town gathered on that quiet Friday morning of May 29, they never expected to be showered with stones.

For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

This story sounds a little fishy. The only churches with similar names are in Jaffa & Jerusalem. Jaffa is currently being renovated and its Armenian.

There is no actual link to a St Nicolay and every link on the web uses the same wording in the body of the story. Some stories list the town, MIGDAL HA-EMEK, but no such place exists when this town is queried.

What...You expect only one news agency or website to cover a big story? I know this kind of story doesn't typically make it to the west...God forbid.
