Metropolitan Hilarion Meets with George W. Bush

At the start of his visit to Dallas, Texas, Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev) of Volokolamsk met with former President George W. Bush of the United States, speaking with him for over an hour about the need for Orthodox Christians and Westerners to work together to preserve "traditional moral values" and presenting him with the first volume of his newly published book, Orthodoxy. More here. The visit comes shortly after news that Bush canceled a planned trip to Switzerland for fear that he would be brought to trial for crimes against humanity by European human rights organizations.
