YOUTUBE DECIDED HELLENISM IS UNSUITABLE FOR MINORS!

Press Release 346 /February 1, 2018

The morally, religiously and culturally bankrupt Monotheism, is desperately clinging to life by conjuring up from its dark past the most disgusting aspects that its intolerant nature has to display. Its Islamic branch by use of military force is trying to bring humanity back to a period of medieval barbarity, while the Christian branch is attempting the same but with a preference to the 16th Century, the time of the Puritan Age.

With the incitement of fundamentalists, in country after country, those that exhibit a sick hatred for the human form, attack anything that glorifies it. Because the Greek art of the pre-Christian period and the Neoclassicism of the 19th Century that emulated it, above all others glorified the human body, they have become the main target of the monotheists. These attacks come in various guises, hiding behind the seemingly innocent masks of modernism, feminism etc…, or directly under the banners of fundamentalism and conservatism.

REGARDING THE BURIAL AT MOUNT LYKAION

Press Release 318/11.08.”2016″

A human sacrifice at Lykaion? We don’t know where did the baseness concerning the situation came from. It could either be from the vagueness and the misexpression of Ms Anna Karapanagos’ (chief of the General Directorate of Antiquities) statements, or from the journalistic “misconceptions” of her statements. It could also be the ever crazy implications of the radial orthodox provocateurs who falsely call themselves journalists. Continue reading REGARDING THE BURIAL AT MOUNT LYKAION

Open letter to Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Ioannis Amanatides

Open Letter 314/8.6. 2016

To Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Ioannis Amanatides.

Mr. Minister.

The zealous involvement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs into a matter regarding a monument (Hagia Sophia), which belongs to another country (Turkey) astonished every clearly thinking Greek citizen.  We Ethnic Hellenes are even more astonished from your statement that the reading of a monotheistic religious text in a space that up until 1934 functioned as a monotheistic temple, and only afterwards designated as a cultural monument, is  not in accordance with European norms and rules of respect and tolerance for diversity and religious freedom.    The same is true of your statement that you will  take the case to international organizations .
