The Brotherhood practices the old warrior religion that is today called Odinism or Asatru. Consecrated to the pagan gods and goddesses of the norse pantheon, these deities are viewed as "older, better, and truer." Members of the Brotherhood use the Eddaic Verses–also called the Poetic Edda–as a kind of scripture.
Members claim their pagan order was established in 1421 to protect the ancient religion during the "Burning Times," and they insist it has existed in unbroken lineage to the present. If the claim is accurate, the Odin Brotherhood resembles the Tariquat, the secret brotherhoods in Islam that sustain the traditions underground in times of intense persecution.
Europeans Keep Roadways Safe Using Angels and Druids
In America, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is trying to cut down on auto accidents with bans on cell phone use. Overseas, they have decided to take an altogether different tack. If you’re driving down certain motorways in Austria, you’re as likely to see a man resembling Obi-wan Kenobi from Star Wars as you are police, reports Orange in UK. The reason? We kid you not, the Austrian authorities hired druids to reduce negative energy on the roadways.
Suspending disbelief for a moment, the roadways do seem safer with fewer accidents as a result of the spiritual work completed by the pagan practitioners. It’s not like the Austrians are unique in trying to find new ways to increase traffic safety either.
