Wikipedia transforms Hellenes into «neopagans»

Some people are totally shameless. First they deleted the Greek entry about Vlassis G. Rassias from the self-proclaimed encyclopedia Wikipedia, then they create an English entry about him in which he is described as a «neopagan leader» and the Supreme Council of ethnic Hellenes (YSEE) as a «Greek neopagan organisation.» As if that were not enough, they list him in their category «Greek neopagans» together with the Greek-speaking «national socialist» Aristotelis Kalentzis which constitutes an insult to Rassias‘ memory. But the really sick part in all this is that they did not wait until after the funeral ceremony to publish their entry. His funeral ceremony is being carried out today. This demonstrates us again the immorality of Wikipedia.

Maybe they think, whoever «they» may be, now that Rassias is dead, he cannot defend himself against this kind of depravity. But we can and we will. And we will not stop exposing them until they stop their strange «games.» That’s a promise. They will not define us. We will never subject ourselves to their pejorative terms («pagan,» «neopagan,» «devil worshipper,» «idolater» etc.) We were, we are and always will be the Hellenic ethnos. That makes us Hellenes. That is what Vlassis G. Rassias was, a member of the Hellenic ethnos, meaning a Hellene. And that is what he will always be.


Note from July 15, «2019»: The writer of the entry contacted me and he believably assured me that he had no «intention to smear anyone.» He just used the «established word» for revitalized ethnic religions with no «malicious intent.» I answered him and explained him our Hellenic perspective, meaning how we perceive or understand the «terms» «paganism» and «neopaganism,» why they are insulting and why we reject them. In the meantime, I checked the entry again and I have found that the problematic words have been removed from the entry. So I decided to leave it at that.
