[On Francesca Simon’s book The Lost Gods, a children's comedy novel about Woden]
The Independent newspaper has recently(27/10/13) referred to one of my book reviews to be found on Amazon UK without giving me an opportunity to respond:
My readers should note that if I had authored a book lampooning Allah, Jesus Christ or Yahweh, the ancestral god of the Jewish-American author, I would have been branded by the `liberal` establishment, muslim and jewish rights organisations and churches as being an infidel, anti-semite or anti-christ but anything that ridicules the ancestral Gods of the native English in England for the sake of comedy and selling books is fair game to these `liberals`.
The Independent should do a little research and get upto date with the religious make up of England today. Wodenism/Odinism/Wotanism is the fastest growing religion in northern Europe amongst Germanic people. If it is not acceptable to take the piss out of Yahweh/Allah or Jesus Christ without mild censure at the very least occurring then they should afford the same considerations to followers of Woden!
