Fallen Wiccan Soldier Due Honors Of His Faith

It's something I never really stopped to think about, but we have American soldiers in the line of fire who happen to be Wiccans. Last year, Sgt. Patrick Stewart, a member of the Nevada National Guard, was killed in Afghanistan. He is, or was, a Wiccan. We had Wiccan soldiers in the Korean War and in Vietnam. For all I know, Wiccans have been taking up arms for one side or the other since the beginning of time.

The reason I know this is because I have been following the story of the difficulty the Wiccans are having with the government. The government will not allow our fallen Wiccan soldiers to have the pentacle on grave markers issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The pentacle is a five-pointed star within a circle that, according to Wiccans, represents earth, air, fire, water and spirit. I guess to some people, like the producers of horror movies, the pentacle has been used as a sign of the devil, just as the Wiccans themselves have been associated with flying broomsticks, bubbling kettles of toil and trouble, and evil spells cast under the moonlight.

If Wiccans could really cast spells, we wouldn't be talking about this. They would have taken care of it. Full Story
