Wiccan Symbol Approved for Grave Markers...

The Wiccan symbol has been approved for use on military grave markers in the nations military cemeteries. The Wiccan Symbol becomes the 39th religious symbol that is approved and available for use by families of deceased military personnel. The various symbols represent the wide spectrum of religious belief in America. There is even a "whirl" that is symbolic of atheism.

Barry Lynn, director of Americans United, called the decision to allow the Wiccan symbol "a proud day for religious freedom in the United States." What do you think?

Associated Baptist Press has an article on the decision to approve the Wiccan symbol here.

b) i think you're fishing for discussion.
