Another one of those freebie confusion of ideas stories has fallen in my lap. Mayan Priests in Guatamala are going to hold a purification ritual at the "sacred" site of Iximche after President Bush's visit there (story here).
According to the article, "Juan Tiney, the director of a Mayan nongovernmental organization... 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. "
Let that sink in.
The Mayan Priests, whose ancestors used to practice human sacrifice on this "sacred" site, are attempting to exorcise the Bush cooties after he leaves. The human sacrifices, by the way, were usually captives from inter-tribal warfare, and so not the inhabitants of this "sacred" site. The Preists will use the usual incantations, incense, and candles. They get that from the Spanish Conquistadores that subjugated their venerable ancestors by destroying their society and slaughtering at will. You can't make this shit up! I think they would be better served by a 55-gallon drum of Lysol.
