Greek Pagans battle for their rites

Followers of traditional Hellenic religion are becoming more visible, notes The Independent in this story.

Georgios, a distinguished lawyer with a turquoise ribbon in his hair to signify the circle of life, cannot see where the credibility problem lies. "The ancient Greeks invented logic, science, medicine and philosophy and built the Parthenon," he says. "Are you telling me they didn't know what they were doing when it came to religion?

No doubt the upcoming Olympic Games and, possibly, the meeting of the World Council of Ethnic Religons upcoming in June have something to do with this move for religious freedom.
