Greek Gods Poised to Make Comeback

Greek courts have ruled that the worship of traditional Greek Gods is to be unbanned, in what Pagans in Greece hope is the first step to the government recognising their religion. Until the ruling, all other religions except Christian (primarily Orthodox in Greece), Judaism, and Islam were banned. The Church in Greece isn't so charitable, as the following quote from Father Eusthathos Kollas demonstrates,
They are a handful of miserable resuscitators
of a degenerate dead religion who wish to return to the monstrous
dark delusions of the past.

I don't think Father Kollas quite understands the religion of his forefathers. Anyway, hurrah for Greece. Maybe Pagans there can get permission to use sacred sites for serious worship (rather than the free-for-all that solstice celebrations became at Stonehenge, for example).
