I like the sound of this !

By the power of Zeus, ancient gods are back
Worship of the 12 gods of Mount Olympus associated with ancient Greece could, thanks to a decision by a first-instance court in Athens, become part of the country�s contemporary culture.
In a ruling made public yesterday, the court allowed the formation of an association whose members claim to worship Zeus and the other 11 gods.
�I support everybody�s right to practice their faith, whichever it may be, without hindrance,� said Apostolos Vrachiolidis, a journalist and one of the founding members of the association. Members of the group deny that they engage in idolatry. �We simply want to worship the gods of our ancestors freely,� a member who preferred to remain anonymous told Kathimerini.
The Church of Greece takes a dim view of this type of worship, linking it to New Age practices.

I prefer Thor and Odin, fine no-nonsense Norse Gods.
