Discussion about religion ends in brawl in Illinois

A man and his two sons were arrested in Illinois after a conversation about religion ended in a man's beating, according to this report:

The Madison County Sheriff's Department said deputies were called to the 1200 block of Clifton Street near Collinsville around 4 a.m. Saturday to respond to a report of battery.
"The victim had been talking about religion and demons when the other three became upset and started whipping up on him," said Madison County Sheriff's Capt. Brad Wells.
Wells said he didn't know what specific religious issue incited the fracas, but that talk of demons apparently put the fight over the edge. He said that eyewitnesses support the victim's claims.
