Believe in Zeus? Athena? You’re not alone.

Over the past eight years or so, Greek religious activists have been claiming persecution–and they aren’t Christian! They’re polytheists who (still) believe in the God’s of the classic Hellenes! They have been persecuted (almost ironically) by the Orthodox Greek Catholic church. In this little tidbit of irony, the President of Greek Clergymen says:

“They are a handful of miserable resuscitators of a degenerate dead religion who wish to return to the monstrous dark delusions of the past”

Hm…”wish to return to the monstrous dark delusions of the past?” Sounds a lot like this guy to me:

Latin mass?  Wishes to turn around every sociological and theological decision made by his predecessor?  Looks like Emperor Palpatine?  No, couldn’t be that he is trying to return to the dark delusions of the past.  This, the same guy who said “The church needs to withstand the tides of trends and the latest novelties…”  But enough about him.

Apparently there are some 100,000 expected worshipers of the 12 Gods of Olympus. Full article here.
