Mayans to 'purify' sacred site after Bush visit
The Jeruselem Post ^ | 03/08/2007 | Associated Press, THE JERUSALEM POST

Posted on 03/08/2007 7:25:46 PM PST by Harrius Magnus

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.

Bush's seven-day tour of Latin America includes a stopover beginning late Sunday in Guatemala. On Monday morning he is scheduled to visit the archaeological site Iximche on the high western plateau in a region of the Central American country populated mostly by Mayans.

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. He also said the rites - which entail chanting and burning incense, herbs and candles - would prepare the site for the third summit of Latin American Indians March 26-30.

LOL. Poor W. Thinks he can buy friendship with the latinos. Look, they will hate us no matter what we do, therefore there is no need to pander to them on immigration (or anything else).

The only spirits this group of Mayans see are inside their skulls. These people really need to lay off the coke, and possibly open a science textbook.

The Mayan spirit guides are disturbed ~ they always have been ~ and they are useless. Look at what happened to the place when the weather got bad just over a thousand years ago ~ destroyed the place!

Now if we could just get all the Maya to go back home everything would be better Fur Shur.

Gee, at least President Bush didn't perform human sacrife like your ancestors did.

People in glass temples shouldn't throw stones.

By the way, if we were persecuting your brothers so much, what do they keep coming here?

Maybe they will perform a human sacrifice to complete the purification.

I know of a few liberals I can send down there for a little vacation.

To my way of thinking President Bush should discard the shoes he wore there.

However, if these nit-wits insist on 'purifying' the place, they should BURN it.

Idiots. Perhaps they would prefer a pro-terrorists leader visit their filthy graves.

I wonder how they'll purify it? Some ancient, traditional, mystical way maybe... sacrifice a 12 year old girl or something?

Persecution? Borders wide open, welfare freebies given out like candy, instant citizenship to anchor babies (and the extended families), and free education and health care. Some persecution.

Actually Juan, your Spanish Conquerors caused "your brothers" more 'harm' than Bush ever did and even that was an advancement. How do you explain your own name?

Then, I presume, Sr. Tiney and his kinsmen can do without any American dollars that might come their way via foreign aid, tourism, educational and agricultural programs, etc.

That would be fair, now, wouldn't it?

Good point. The Spanish would join them in bashing the president. We live in an evil world that has lost the stomach to fight for freedom. I'm just going to sit back and await the Second Coming.

Pandering to anyone for Anything will make them want MORE.

It's an old school sales technique. If they give in to soon, "sell them more"!

I'm becoming uneasy about Bush and his last days as POTUS.

Didn't the Mayans do ritualistic sacrifices? Angry spirits of dead follow the Mayans naturally.

Yeah, unlike your ancients who sacrificed men, women and children tribal members to keep the cosmos in balance. Maybe we should start sacrificing illegals to help stop global warming.

Thanks for the ping, Jonny. Well at least the Mayans were among the original moonbats streching back a thouand or so years. Our modern-day Dim moonbats have no such excuse. ;-)

Does this purification ceremony also involve ripping the heart out of the losers of a ball game? I think that'll quell those spirits.

There is a statue of a steaming pile of dog shit in our city square -- that is supposed to represent some Mexican Indian god figure...
(YES- Taxpayer money went for a "pagan religious" statue)

I'll go downtown tomorrow and piss on it as a cleansing show of mutual respect for the offended "Mayans".....
