Has anyone else read about this? It's a terrible shame but it made me laugh, too. I don't know how much malice was involved b/c the attacker was recently(?) released from a mental institution but the Bishop was able to defend himself with a censer. I picture him swinging it like a mace.
Perhaps in the future all Bishops will be required to practice kenjustu with their Croziers. just sayin'

I was thinking flail, but yeah... had that thought too... and it made me laugh and cheer!
Ok, it's not good that he got attacked....but the censer thing is really awesome.  swing it in a circle and SMACK!  LOL
I think the really surprising thing here is that a German bishop had a censer!
