I think we should buy the White House and Capital Building as well, and after exorcising them, turn the Capital Building into a Cathedral and the White House into an Orthodox High School.

But still. Even though it is a fools joke, I don't mind. Why post something a month later? April fools jokes are played on the first of April, not the first of may.

Well, in the Socialist/Communist world, it is May Day, which might be styled "fool the proletariat day". laugh

A Byzantine Cross on top of the needle is a grand idea.

Hehe. Maybe we'll turn the Jefferson Memorial into some Greek Orthodox Church of sorts. Paint the dome on it to a nice, shiny gold, then decorate the insides with icons and murals, and have a nice altar and iconostasis in there, and it'll be fantastic.
