Odinists Demand Buildings from the Church of England

I was interested to read about the recent demand by the Odinist Fellowship for the return of sacred pre-Christian land to the Odinist community. They have written to the Church of England, firstly demanding an apology for the "former crimes" committed by the church against English heathens during the period of forced conversion and secondly as recompense they are demanding that the church hand over two churches, one from the archbishopric of York and one from Canterbury. Thus far they have been fobbed off by bishops but their struggle continues. It should be noted that the Odinist Fellowship (not to be confused with the Odinic Rite) have converted an old non-conformist chapel in Newark, Nottinghamshire into what is believed to be England's first post conversion Odinist temple. I have yet to pay a visit to it but I intend to do so next year. My best wishes go out to them.
