Militant Druids?

January 18th, 2009

Somedays you just feel like the world hasn’t exactly gone to hell so much as it has descended into such a cultural and intellectual abyss that hell itself is well above our station.

Case in point:

A group of militant Druids has forced an expensive official inquiry after demanding that a museum releases a 4,000-year-old skeleton called ‘Charlie’ so they can rebury it.

They claim the bones of a young girl and seven other sets of prehistoric remains excavated near the ancient stone circle in Avebury, Wiltshire, are their ‘tribal ancestors’.

If their claim is rejected, they have threatened to take a test case to the High Court under the Human Rights Act.

That’s the world has gone to hell part. Now for the cultural and intellectual abyss stuff:

They claim that remains in the museum include their ancestors Hawk, from the ancient Order of the Sidhe, and Lydia, Swordbearer of the Glastonbury Outer Order of Druids…

A breakaway Arthurian Warband faction, led by the self-styled Uther Pendragon, who claims to be the reincarnation of King Arthur, demands an end to all archaeological digs around henges and barrows.

‘The Warband split away from us so we have two groups calling themselves the Council of British Druid Orders,’ said Mr Davies.

A breakaway group of druids, who claim legitimacy based on their leader being the reincarnation of a fictional character? And of course, those British, never quite willing to call a crazy man crazy:

English Heritage said it recognised there were ‘sensitive issues’ involved and that it had to balance the claims of the Druids against the public interest.

When we look back on what was once British culture, it won’t be the Mohammedanists whose feet we will ultimately lay blame, but people who are too bureaucratically frightened to go on record as calling “militant druids,” crazies who should be ignored.

    As a follower of Druidism, i find this story hilarious. It just goes to show you that every spiritual quest has a few nuts running around.
