Break out the Laurel Wreathes!


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.

That is way cool.
I wonder if/how they are organized or have an online presence.
