Greeks Can Worship Ancient Greek Deities

from Focus

Athens, GREECE - A Greek court allowed association of worshippers of ancient Greek deities to be set up, Radio Svoboda informs.

At the moment Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Aphrodite, Athens, Hermes, etc. are being worshipped by 100,000 Greeks. Until now Ministry of Culture banned them from conducting public worship at archeological sites and their gatherings were often secretive. Greek Orthodox Church is severely criticizing worship of ancient deities.

Interesting post...
being from Greece and generally avoiding Christians, I must admit I haven't met anyone who seriously believes in (the very intersting, quirke, petty-at-times and sex-having) ancient gods... On the other hand though, I can tell you that the church is indeed powerful, both in a constitutional and in popular terms... The latests scandals though, haven't helped the churches image... And the chief anti-church (and not only) comedian/punk singer is getting amazingly popular (after being around for 30+ years).

Cheers mate
