From April 2003: Bush, Rumsfeld, Blair and Straw were banned from Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem
Think about it: ‘Bush banned from birthplace of Christ’. Again, all are welcome to come and pray in a Catholic church, even this lot, but I appreciate the intent. Reminds me of the story of St Mary of Egypt!
When the hour for the holy elevation approached, I was trying to make my way in with the crowd which was struggling to get through the church doors. I had at last squeezed through with great difficulty almost to the entrance of the temple, from which the lifegiving Tree of the Cross was being shown to the people. But when I trod on the doorstep which everyone passed, I was stopped by some force which prevented my entering.
