How goes it with the neo pagans Tom? I've seen evidence of them up here in Thessaloniki too.
They... are growing...
within the next ten years we will be in trouble!
Pagan propaganda is excelent, and well organised. People posing as "Atheists" bashing the church, are in almost EVERY Greek internet Forum. They are determined , and fatinatics. Have you seen the movie "American History X"? Remember how the hero was? They are EVEN MORE fanatic!
Greek Neopagans , are linked with Nationalism , Racism and satanism/witchcraft. I've seen People being literally BRAINWASHED so the only thing the know is that Ancient Greece was TOP and The eastern roman empire (aka byzantium) slaughtered Greeks, and had nothing to do with Greece. Of course, this, to anyone that has read history is ABSURD, but most people havent read history! You know how do they call Orthodox? JudeoChristians. They dispise everything jewish, of course. This is Neonazi propaganda, with a religious face..
The neopagans are anti-jew , but in a metaphysical sense! Some neopagans say that Greeks are a different ALIEN tribe that Came From Andromeda and that the Jews came too, from space, and they are the natural enemy. :cwm3:
It sounds TOTALLY stupid (And it IS!) but most people here are suffering from the complex "I-come-directly-from-ancient-Greece".
It's like saying you come directly from your Grandfathers(A. Greece) and not your Fathers (Byzantium)
And the Olympics, which will be held next year, ARE NOT helping!
of course this is a phenomenon with limited life, but so was Communism, and it didint stop it from destroying a lot of people...
In the next ten years, we will probably see a Temple of zeus or Athina, downtown Athens. Thesalloniki doesn't have such a problem, since people there are FAR MORE spiritual, than at Athens.
Just a few days before there was the annual celebration at Mt Olympus, with ANIMAL SACRIFICES!
huston, we have a problem!
