The outbreak of the H1N1 virus has led many churches to suspend the tradition of having holy water in open fonts into which people dip their hands.
The new machine works like an automatic soap dispenser, squirting water when a hand is passed under the tap.
Hmm, maybe they aren't really so sure it is 'holy' when it comes down to it. 'No atheists in foxholes'? More like no true believers in a flu scare.
