Greece was raided by the banksters in a classic move reminiscent of the best of Boss Tweed. The result has been a financial crises, austerity, riots, a general strike, and the election of a bona fide fascist party, the Neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, to power. Recession and fascists would be a bad enough combination, but they have even worse problems. The government finally found time to attend to their really pressing number one problem - Blasphemy.

On September 24th, Greece's Cyber Crimes division arrested a Pastafarian for blasphemy. link Rumor has it that Greece was once civilized, but now Prometheus, bringer of light, science and knowledge, weeps for her, while while the malificent one, malignant and malicious, garbed in priestly robes as is his wont, laughs triumphantly. In addition to all of its other troubles, Greece is a theocracy, cursed with a state religion, and a willingness to enforce that grim reality.
It is alleged that the real culprit here might be the Golden Dawn party, and not the Church. The Golden Dawn pressed for this action in the legislature and the cops , who are close to the party, carried it out. The Church has yet to disown and disavow the action however. History shows that when religion or a/the church is partnered with or identical to secular power of an autocratic ilk, there is truly hell to pay for the people (look up the Ustaša, for example). Things now look even grimmer than before for the people of Greece. I worry not about their economy, but their freedom.
