NORDIC BUSINESS REPORT-6 November 2003-Danish authorities to approve old Norse faith(C)1994-2003 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD http://www.m2.com
The old Norse faith will soon be approved as a religious belief in Denmark.
The Norse beliefs were banned a thousand years ago and for several years, the Danish church authorities have said no to recognising the association Forn Sidr.
The members of Forn Sidr believe in Thor, Odin and the other gods of the old Norse religion.
A new application from the association has been approved, according to the Danish Christian newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad. A registration of the association reportedly means that it will have the right to marry people in a way that is legally binding.
