How things change for the better; When I used to go to Church it was boring, not anymore:
link More than 60 protesters demonstrated outside a church which held a carol service with alternative songs condemning Israel.

The service was held at St Paul’s in Covent Garden by Jews for Boycotting Israeli Goods (JBIG) on Tuesday and included readings from Palestinian writer Ghada Karmi, veteran peace campaigner Bruce Kent, Baroness Jenny Tonge and Lauren Booth.

During the service, participants sung new lyrics to traditional carols, including The Holly and the Ivy which was renamed The Olive and the Army and included the lines: “O the rampaging of settlers; And the rolling of the tanks; The grinding of the bulldozers; As olives fall in ranks.”(LOL how creative!! Where can we buy the Christmas Album?)

Protesters included representatives from the Zionist Federation, Anglican Friends of Israel and a contingent of Christians from South Wales.

The service follows another held last week by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) at the Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church with readings from playwright Caryl Churchill, whose play Seven Jewish Children, caused controversy earlier this year.
Damn, I may start sttending again..........
