Franz Sørensen has claimed that Christians are as big a threat to humanity as climate change deniers.
In a conversation with the Priest-Chieftain last night, the Pagan comedian said: “Christians we might see as people like those who deny global warming. You might defend their choice to believe that as freedom of speech – but if they are wrong, and people must die in combat to reach Valhalla, it could be disastrous for millions of people.
“Christianity is a threat to the salvation of millions,” he said. ”With no mighty warriors to help him, Odin won’t have a hope at Ragnarök!”
Sørensen told the Priest-Chieftain the viking people had given too much ground to this new fashionable ‘monotheism’. He said: “There’s too much apologising – making concessions on things like, Thor throwing lightning bolts or Frigg being Odin’s wife. Don’t give in to them!
“If you believe in the gods all bets are off. Odin can throw Gungnir and never miss. There’s a temptation to give a bit of ground to their ‘messiah’. But if you believe the gods, why shouldn’t there be valkyries?”
“People call it ‘Thursday’ out of a sense of duty, so maybe goðar don’t have to try hard enough.”
Sørensen said that it was no longer fashionable to be a pagan. “In modern civilisation, it’s incredibly cool to be a monotheist.”
