    Odinists Demand Church Buildings

    A group of pagans has written to the Archbishop of Canterbury demanding two churches to make amends for those it says were stolen 1,300 years ago. The Odinist Fellowship, which represents 1,000 members of the pagan religion, wrote to the Church of England last month asking for two churches to be returned to make up for actions which took place during the Christianisation of England. The letter, addressed directly to Archbishop Welby, said: "With a view to re-establishing better relations between the Odinist Fellowship and the Christian churches in England, and persuaded that a restitution of past wrongs is the best way to lay the foundations of improved relations, we wish you to be aware that the great majority of Odinists believe that honour requires the English church to issue a public apology for its former crimes against the Odinists."

    After 1300 years I guess they won't get it their way. It's as pointless to make up to slave decendents in the US today. No one alive today was there then.

    On the issue of African slaves and their descendants today in the USA I do not know what the solution is but empathy may help to realise why there is so much bitterness.
    Regarding the Odinist Fellowship's demands it is good publicity and helps to further cast the Church in a negative light as people's attention is drawn to the atrocities committed by the Christian Church in introducing and enforcing their desert religion in Europa. There is also the slight possibility that they may actually get what they want as many church buildings are closing due to the dying off of the aged congregations.
