Church Of Aphrodite 1930-1969

Reposting a bit from On the Road in Virginia: Looking for Gleb Botkin over at A Letter from Hardscrabble Creek.

Gleb Botkin’s Church of Aphrodite lasted from the 1930s to 1969. (He formally incorporated it in 1939, but I don’t know just when it started.)

The church was more Goddess-monotheistic than polytheistic:

Aphrodite, the flower-faced, the sweetly smiling, the laughter-loving Goddess of Love and Beauty, is the self-existent, eternal and Only Supreme Deity, Creator and Mother of the cosmos, the Universal Cause, the Universal Mind, the Source of all life and all positive and creative forces of nature, the Fountainhead of all happiness and joy.

Did I mention this was in Virginia of all friggin’ places? Awesome possum. Go read the whole thing and look at pix and whatnot. Go Aphrodite!
