VA Approves Pentacle for Gravesites

After negotiations of 9 years by several Wiccan and Pagan groups, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has added the Pentacle, to its list of emblems of faith that can be placed on government gravestones and markers. For more info, see Witchvox story, and Circle Sanctuary story that also has links to press coverage. This is significant not only for the Pagan/Wiccan community, but also for the continuation of separation of Church and State and freedom of religion, which, it seems to us, has sometimes been under stress in the U.S. in the last few years.

Blessed be!

I had been following this story for quite a while. I was so happy to see it finally have the right resolution.

Joyous Beltane
