Let's just hope they get it right and make pentacles available and not pentagrams.
I suppose it seems a bit scary, especially to Christians, that people would support Wicca, since witchcraft in general is assumed to be evil. Of course, the Wiccan don't seem to go around killing things in the name of nature, do they?
Hey, you obviously haven't seen Wickerman? Britt Ekland haunted my dreams for years after seeing that flick.
Seriously, most folks in the US think witches are straight out of Macbeth or the Wizard of Oz. Good points, bousozoku.
I'm sure. But these people shouldn't have their right to believe as they wish taken away because of someone else's ignorance, no matter how commonplace that ignorance may be.
And nobody saw the remake.
While I think that Wiccans are dead wrong in their beliefs, I agree that they shouldn't be denied the right to believe it and follow those beliefs so long as their not trying to sacrifice children or something (note: I don't truly think Wiccans do that, it's just a joke). Let them put their pentagram on the tombstone, the guys are dead anyways, it's not like they're going to change their beliefs.
Assuming that these two soldiers themselves were Wiccan and not just their wives... I think that they certainly should be allowed to commemorate the final resting place of their bodies with a symbol of their own religion....
i found this much more confusing
listing faith on dog tags ? how strange is that
I think this tradition started with individuals who take part in religions that sort of *require* or strongly encourage some sort of last rites... like even within "traditional" Western religions, this is a big, big deal to Catholics, whereas it is not so much so to most Protestant Christians....
Men are a bit subservient in Wicca, from what I've seen but I would have doubts as to whether any Wiccan would impose their beliefs on a tombstone, if the husband didn't believe.
What symbol do Scientologists get on their military headstones? And what about atheists -- do they get a cross with a circle and slash over it?
Inquiring minds demand to know.
The authorized list: http://www.cem.va.gov/cem/hm/hmemb.asp
None for those faiths, guess the atheists will sue next.
Atheism is number 16 on the list. None for scientology though.
I want to sue whatever atheists came up with that goofy symbol.
I'm blind. Thx!
Sorry, not on the list. Sue or choose another!
if i were picking a religion based on avatars, i think i'd have to go for #23, "SEICHO-NO-IE".
worst: #28, "ECKANKAR". their 70's redesign is just now starting to look a bit dated.
Why would anybody want to put "Not shown because of copyrights." on their headstone?
I don't know, the Atheist symbol looks like something from the Justice League headquarters.
I can think of a couple of reasons, but personally I'd prefer a sell-by date.
Where is the smiley face on the list? It should be the symbol for the Church of the Late Sleepers.
This is normally so they knoww hat kind of priest to use or how to handle the body if you get offed in combat.
I was going to say it looked either like a nuclear power station's logo, or Drax's organisation from Moonraker.
What, no FSM?
Pretty creepy, they allow the
Isn't someone forgetting that the south lost?
