Their priests are called "Abunas", hence classic.

I don't know, are these the people who believe the Ark is in their temple and that guy is trapped in the temple grounds for life to keep the flame burning or something? It's all a bit Schroedinger's cat but I like it.

I saw an Ethiopian priest here in Dublin recently, around the very corner from where I live. I thought of running up to him and saying "HABESHA! HABESHA!" but thought better of it.
