Fun History Fact

Jolly Old St. Nicholas (Nikolaos of Myra) often started fistfights with colleagues who disagreed with his religious beliefs.  The picture above shows him bitch slapping Arius of Alexandria in 325 AD at the Council of Nicea.  Considered a heretic, Arius did not believe in the doctrine of the Holy Trinity.  When presenting his beliefs to the Roman Emperor Constantine and a council of bishops, St. Nick grew so enraged that he smacked Arius down! Oh Yeah!  

St. Nicholas had to be restrained, removed, and chained for the remainder of the council to maintain order.
