Justin Welby Must Return “Stolen” Buildings Says Pagan Odinist Fellowship

Ralph Harrison, Director of Odinist Fellowship and leader of British pagans, had sent a letter to Justin Welby , Archbishop of Canterbury, demanding they 'return' two church buildings. Harrison claims the properties were stolen from pagans about 1,300 years back. Over 1,000 pagans are members of the Fellowship.
[…]
The Odinist Fellowship wants two churches- one from Canterbury and the other from York's provinces – to compensate for the temple grounds which it claims were taken away by Christian missionaries like St. Augustine. As per Harrison, snatching of pagan property equals ‘spiritual genocide.’ He claimed huge swathes of stolen property are under control of Church of England.

Hmm.

The Roman Catholic Church should claim every C of E property, then settle up with the Odinists. :lmao:

1,300 years ago? Too silly on its face to merit serious consideration, but didn't the Odinists invade Great Britain and kill the people who were living there before them? Essentially he's asking for stolen property that was stolen from somebody else to begin with. If I steal a car, and a few years later, someone else steals it from me, do I have any kind of moral claim to demand its return? And that's only if you accept the dubious proposition that adopting some ancient mythology as a belief system confers some sort of right of inheritance from the original people who held that belief system.
