Norse mythology and the worship of the old gods Odin and Thor may soon become an approved religious community in Denmark.

The religious authorities have for years refused to approve the organization Forn Sidr as a religious community, but in a new statement it appears as if they might be given the go ahead.

In other words, it appears as if the worship of Norse gods may once again be accepted as a religion after it was banned more than a 1000 years ago. The organization Forn Sidr Asa- and Vanetrosamfunet may soon be approved as a religious community by the Ministry of Churches in Denmark.

Approval as a church community means among other things, that appointed persons in the community can perform marriage ceremonies with legal validity.
