Mayan Shamans to purify desecrated site
Cleaning up after he leaves.
Only George Bush could out-do Cortes and the Conquistadors. Credit goes to Blah3, where I first saw this. Now it's propagating, and is at Witchvox, Huffington, and others:
...Mayan leaders announced that priests will purify a sacred archaeological site to eliminate "bad spirits" after US President George W. Bush visits next week..."That a person like (Bush), with the persecution of our migrant brothers in the United States, with the wars he has provoked, is going to walk in our sacred lands, is an offense for the Mayan people and their culture," Juan Tiney, the director of a national association of indigenous people and peasant farmers, said Thursday...Tiney said the "spirit guides of the Mayan community" decided it would be necessary to cleanse the sacred site of "bad spirits" after Bush's visit so that their ancestors could rest in peace...
It's times like these that justify and confirm my choice in spiritual path. I hope the date of the ritual is posted, as I'll ask my coveners (my real-life ones, but online ones are welcome to play along) to join in. A little extra mojo can't hurt!
