Another Big Victory for the Bored Gods!!!

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" You picked a great day to join us! We're having a toga party!

And what a party! Every single god and goddess in the Greek pantheon is here, and they're cutting a rug!

(I'm glad it's a work day. I don't know how I'd explain this to my neighbors.)

We've chatted with some of these awesome deities in one-on-ones, but never en masse before. And I must say it's refreshing not to be sucker-punched by Ares so he can deliver foul-mouthed diatribes in favor of war. Today he's serenely pulling the buds off the pear tree.

But wait! There's more! Gods and saints from other praise and worship teams have come to give the Olympians a high-five! The faeries are going all gooey over Eros (a.k.a. Cupid). Hypnos is sharing trade secrets with the bored gods of O Centro Espirita Beneficiente Uniao do Vegetal.

And this warms my heart. There they go, arm in arm, Hades and Mr. Applegate, chatting amiably, with Cerberus nipping at their heels. And by golly, Cerberus does look like "Fluffy" from Harry Potter! I'm glad he's nipping Applegate's heels and not mine.

This one has me floored, and it points to the central logic of "The Gods Are Bored."

The dread Medusa is trying to crash, and she's being kept at bay by none other than ... St. Patrick.

Green beer all around! Awesome Feta cheese on the house!

(And I'm quickly hiding the mirrors so that Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite can't get into a quarrel about who's prettiest. They're all stunning.)

Hey, Zeus! Keep your hands to yourself! Be nice or you won't get your party hat.

Rowdy crew.

You must be wondering why these particular deities are here today at "The Gods Are Bored." In a nutshell, they've been re-instated at their day jobs with full benefits and a growing praise and worship team!

Now Poseidon won't have to work the lifeguard stand at Venice Beach anymore.

My friend Athana at Radical Goddess Thealogy informs us that the Greek government just gave the good-ol' go-ahead to the 100,000 Greeks who worship the pantheon of their ancestors. This praise and worship team will now be allowed access to the ancient temples and sites of god and goddess worship that are off limits to vile tourists.


Hey, Pegasus! Want a carrot?

Pegasus would rather have green beer.

And here we have Hecate, Persephone, and Demeter, all highly respected goddesses here on this site. I think they're a little disappointed by how overgrown my garden is. But no! The Green Man is explaining the fact that no plant is a weed, that each has its inner beauty. (I can see these gals are digging the Green Man, pardon the pun.)

We here at "The Gods Are Bored" applaud the Greek government for lifting any bans on worship of this pantheon at their sacred sites. Not only does this provide meaningful labor to deserving deities, it also promotes freedom of the mind, cultural pride, and a richer blend of theological tea.

So. Athena. When do you think you'll be ready to send some missionaries to America?

Anne, you are good! Imagine --managing to get Ares calmed down enough to come to a party! "Today he's serenely pulling the buds off the pear tree."

Reminds me of my younger brother at age six on one of his good days. You must have grown up with a younger brother?
