Shall we gather at the river?

Raw sewage taints sacred Jordan River

[...] The faithful wet their faces and arms, shouting 'amen' and 'hallelujah' after each baptism, unaware that just downstream, raw sewage was flowing into the water.

That's the split personality of one of the world's most sacred rivers.

Small sections of the Jordan's upper portion, near the Sea of Galilee, have been kept pristine for baptisms. But Israel, Jordan and Syria have siphoned off huge amounts of river water to meet their needs in this arid region, and pumped waste water back in. [...]

Touching the Jordan River
And here I thought that burning sensation was the eternal hellfire of damnation!

This has nothing to do with this topic...but I thought you'd find it amusing. Pepe happens to be a close, personal friend of mine (right center pic).
