Honoring the old goat demons

Dignitaries from all across Europe attended a bizarre ceremony for the opening of a new tunnel under the Swiss Alps. The pagan festival reminds us of the Old Testament warning by God to abandon the seirim, the goat-demons to which the Israelites sacrificed during their 40 years in the desert.

From Set to Azazel to Pan, it appears the seirim are still with us, and there are people still willing to pay them homage.
