Pagan Headstone Project

It seems as if our government will not allow a Pagan emblem of belief on the headstones of those who have died for this country. Sad.

Mikki over at Non Fluffy Wicca has done research into what is happening regarding requests for a Pagan emblem of belief. I find it rather disturbing that many other religious groups have been approved, even sometimes without the proper process. Those of Pagan faiths have been denied again and again, even though they have filed the proper forms and provided any additional information that was asked for.

No matter the faith of the person, they should be allowed to have their religion's symbol on their headstone. Our government, but denying the right to do so, is allowing religious discrimination to happen.
