Neopagans in Greece are ready to start a “liberation war” against Christians
Piraeus, November 16, 2015
The Metropolis of Piraeus of the Church of Greece made a special statement in connection with the intensification of activities of neopagans, reports AgionOros.ru.
The document points to “the unprecedented radicalization of some neopagan organizations”, most of which “go beyond law and outrage all decency”.
Through their internet pages the neopagans blaspheme against Christ and Orthodox saints, threaten priests and Orthodox faithful: “They openly declare the formation of armed groups, the so-called “warriors of the gods” who, under direction of their pagan priests, will rise in an armed revolt so as to “liberate” Greeks from “the Christian slavery”.
“They speak of a river of blood and piles of corpses… They express their intention to launch 'a holy liberation war' against Orthodox Christians whom they call 'invaders who occupied the territory of Greece.'”
The recent detention of members of one radical neopagan organization in the city of Kalamata indicates that pagans will not confine themselves to threats only. The neopagans laid explosives under the monument to the last Byzantine Emperor Constantine Palaiologos (1405-1453) in Sparta and were going to make a number of attacks on state institutions, cultural centers and organizations.
The Metropolis of Piraeus notes that neopagans earlier already attacked Orthodox churches and asks the police to inspect the literature published by neopagans, to examine their websites, and to ensure security of Orthodox believers.
