The L.A. Times had an op-ed article on Oct. 23rd from Dr. Mary Lefkowitz, professor emerita at Wellesley College. In it, she argues for a return to polytheism, but her reasons are some I haven't seen often discussed in quite that way.

(I went to Wellesley, and did take a class with her - one of the ones she's best known for, "Women's Lives in Greece and Rome". My take on some of the article is that I'm not entirely sure I agree with all her interpretations, but I like the making-me-think parts.)

I loved that article! Thanks! I agree with some of the criticisms voiced by others here, with the caveat that deity myths can convey symbolic truths about the Gods while still (on the surface) being entertaining stories. Sallustius talks about this in some detail.

Too bad the Gods can't save me from my own stupidity.
