Letter to the Editor: On the Olympic Games

May 11, 2022

To the Editor:

The Olympic Games were banned by Theodosios II in the late 4th century AD. It took some 1500 years to restore The Modern Olympic Games at Athens in 1896 – what an amazing achievement for the world to celebrate, Christians and non-Christians. If only Pindar the Great Olympic Poet from Thiva, Boeotia could witness our contemporary situation maybe he could express the notion, the Sacred Rules of the Olympic Oath, to honor the Olympic Truce, Ekecheiria, that no nation that participates in the Olympic Games is allowed to invade another nation in any Olympic Year. This violation of military aggression must be immediately put in effect this year 2022 by the International Olympic Committee. Mr. Putin your nation is in contempt of the sacred law of Ekecheiria. The Russian Olympic athletes will not be allowed to participate in the next Olympic Games!
