Re: [humanism-174] The Greeks who worship the ancient gods

I think that they are just playing along.  They even mentioned that they do NOT follow the sacrifice of a live bull, but rather submit flowers and stuff like that to the gods.

That is another ironic thing since I know a Muslim that I work with that still gets a live sheep (I think; going off memory) and has it slaughtered during one of the holidays.  Also, the Jews still follow the kosher thing.

That is what is so funny about the church making negative comments about these people; the church is still practicing their crap the old way whereas (from what I read here), these people seem to just enjoy and want to give "thanks" to the earth or past gods or whatever....

Yes, because Judeo-Christianity with its ill-tempered MonoGod & sacrificed son is so much more "sophisticated"!

Interesting article- I wonder if the ancient god "worshippers" really believe or are just kind of playing along in a "renaissance fayre" sort of way.

Very good article.  There are many things said that is so ironic!  I could comment on many things said, but I thought this was so fitting from the Church's point of view:

In 2007, an official of the Orthodox Church described them as, "a handful of miserable resuscitators of a degenerate dead religion".
