Wiccan Soldier Can't Get Religious Symobl On Memorial Monday, March 06, 2006

It seems a U.S. soldier, killed in combat in Iraq can't get his religious symbol on a memorial along with other soldiers in the plaque. the symbol, the pentacle isn't an officially recognized symbol despite the military recognizing Wiccan clergy as chaplains. While there's obviously some religious favoritism here, I also think it's some bureaucratic BS as well, something of which the military is legendary for.

MajikThise mentioned that and the fact that Missouri is trying to make the official Missouri state religion Christianity. They're basically saying with the legislation, all religions are equal, it's just that this one is more equal than others.
