Message From A Hellenic Nationalist Comrade On Golden Dawn and Neo-Paganism
I was reading Golden Dawn's website today and noticed an article entitled, "The ancient Hellenic religion and the neo-Hellenic state" (link:
As I expected, the article was in favor of Neo-Paganism. To summarize, it basically argues that Neo-Pagans don't have rights in Greece and minimizes Christianity. I had hoped that Golden Dawn had ended its flirtation with Neo-Paganism but it looks as though I was mistaken.
When Greece's nationalists (or rather "nationalists") have distanced themselves from the One True Faith of Orthodoxy, it really speaks volumes about the dire situation of the country. None of them realize that the only reason we are in this dark age is precisely because society has separated itself from Orthodoxy. On the one hand we have democratic "nationalists" who promote homosexuality and on the other hand we have authoritarian "nationalists" who promote Neo-Paganism; nowhere do we have a substantial Orthodox Christian nationalist force. If we were a religious and pious people as we once were, there can be no doubt that the nation would not only free itself from the foreign, anti-national forces that currently occupy us but that the nation would rise to heights unseen since the glory of the Eastern Roman Empire. I feel it is unlikely that our "nationalists" will come to their senses and realize this. More likely, their continued betrayal of the Faith will (ironically) keep us enslaved to the forces that they so despise. Despite the situation, I believe it's only temporary and that all hope is not lost. After all, whenever we've fallen, God, in His mercy, has always helped us rise up again. And so I believe it's only a matter of time before He inspires individuals with the necessary spirituality and piety to impose an Orthodox Christian way of life on our beleaguered nation.
