Use of Wiccan Symbol on Veterans’ Headstones Is Approved

Post by tacomascene » Tue Apr 24, 2007 8:35 am

"Though it has many forms, Wicca is a type of pre-Christian belief that reveres nature and its cycles. Its symbol is the pentacle, a five-pointed star, inside a circle."

That's surprising. When my husband was stationed at Fort Campbell they had a sect of Wiccans there that went out every month to have their religious functions. And no matter what cycle the base was in or what the units were doing, the soldiers had to be excused so that they could practice their religion.

It doesn't make sense that the military has to make allowance for the practice of a religion but didn't have to make allowance for the inscription on a tomb stone.

“I don’t think witchcraft is a religion,” Mr. Bush said at the time, according to a transcript. “I would hope the military officials would take a second look at the decision they made.”



Would someone shoot this guy already?

I'm surprised anyone gives a shit. If you are religious you are a sheep. If you are a sheep, your God is busy fucking Jake Gyllenhaal in his asshole. Even if your god is "nature"
