Pagans are a-salt-ed

Pagans are a-salt-ed

November 04, 2006

A CATHOLIC group has been banned from mystical Glastonbury after hurling abuse and salt at pagans.

Local priest Father Kevin Knox-Lecky invited national group Youth 2000 to the Somerset town for a religious festival.

But one male youth was arrested and two women cautioned after locals had salt thrown at them to cleanse them of “evil” spirits.

Pagan shop owner Maya Pinder, who was abused by Catholics, said: “It was as if we’d returned to the Dark Ages.”

Father Knox-Lecky apologised to the pagan community and vowed not invite the group again.
