Wiccan symbol OK for soldiers' graves

CNN is reporting this morning that the pentacle, a symbol of the Wiccan religion, is to be allowed on the graves of fallen soldiers buried in national cemetries in the US.

'A settlement between the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Wiccans adds the five-pointed star to the list of "emblems of belief" allowed on VA grave markers,' says the report.

'This settlement has forced the Bush Administration into acknowledging that there are no second class religions in America, including among our nation's veterans," said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which represented the Wiccans in the lawsuit.'

I'm no fan of religion of any sort, but jeez, I can't help enjoying seeing Dubya and his Christian cronies getting a good snotklap. Link
