Prince of Darkness sent packing
News just in: Satan, the demonic lord of evil, has been snubbed in an astonishing attack by a top town official. Carolyn Risher, mayor of Inglis village in Florida, issued a proclamation today naming the devil Public Enemy No 1.
“Satan is not now, nor ever again will be, a part of this town,” she says, warning the Prince of Darkness to stay away or risk municipal action (full story).
The official declaration has met a mixed response. “A most extreme intrusion,” says the American Civil Liberties Union, labelling it a gross violation of ethics. Many Inglis residents, however, applaud the anti-devil message.
Satan himself was unavailable for comment.

Easy-to-assemble plastic deities
We always aim to bring you cutting-edge information, and here – exclusively – we present a batch of modern deities for a spiritually deprived world: LEGO Gods
It’s true. Our loyal acolyte Rowan has created a whole Lego pantheon, including OOGABUBBA, GROMBLE and the PSFINX. See them in the Offerings section now.
Will we see Lego Gods at Toys’R'Us anytime soon? Stranger things have happened – Lego’s hugely successful Bionicle range is heavily inspired by Oceanic mythology.

Jupiter shines in the New Year
We hope you had a stunningly good festive time. BACCHUS and his team of merrymakers were out in force!
Don’t forget, JUPITER, the Top God in the Roman Planet Suite, can be seen in all his glory over the next few days. He’s at his brightest for zillions of years, so catch him in the night sky while the going’s good. If you have binoculars, you might even see some moons buzzing around his head.
