Keeping evil away from the temple
I don't know how I let Jesus' birthday slip by without a mention of the decision in 2003 to ban George Bush from the Church of the Holy Nativity in Bethlehem. The Orthodox priests at the purported birthplace of Jesus didn't want the likes of George Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, British Prime Minister Tony Blair or UK Foreign Minister Jack Straw to besmirch the holy ground. And if Rumsfeld and Straw have now left their posts, it doesn't matter—they were banned forever.
Thanks to Global Research for remembering.
