CNN broadcasts the Pentacle Quest by Veteran´s Widow

The media has been offering a great amount of coverage to this issue, especially to the fact that the US military does not allow for Wiccan and Pagan Symbols in Military Graves.

The Government allows religious symbols such as the Christians Cross the Jewish Star of David and the Islamic Crescent, but not the Pentagrams or any other Pagan Symbols.
This is an old debate in which Pagan Activist from all over the world have been involved with.
The famous phrase of the USA president Jorge W. Bush in June 1999 to the ABCNews: "I don't think that witchcraft is a religion. I wish the military would rethink this decision,” reveals the spirit of the government .

Recently, with the case of Roberta Stewart, a widow of a Pagan soldier killed in combat, who is fighting to have a Pentacle included on her husband’s government-issued memorial plaque, has received a big coverage form the media and has caught the attention of the CNN, who is broadcasting the information all over the world.
I suggest, for more information on this case, that you visit this witchvox article .

Roberta Stewart and Selena Fox walk together in Washington, DC (from CNN's American Morning).

If you want to help Roberta Stewart and other Pagan widows in the same situation and be an active part to help the Pentacle being added to the NCA list, I encourage you to get in contact with Lady Liberty League via email (liberty@circlesanctuary.org) or fax (608 924 5961). They are very proactive and fighting openly in this specific case.
