War Widow Dedicates Wiccan Plaque Symbol

It took her more than a year, but Roberta Stewart, widow of Patrick Dana Stewart who was killed in Afganistan on September 25, 2005, finally has a Wiccan symbol installed on her husbands war memorial.

This is a very good thing. All veterans should be honored for their service to our country, and if Christians are going to be honored with their own holy symbol, everyone else should be extended the same courtesy based on their religious beliefs.

Roberta Stewart, widow of Sgt. Patrick Stewart, and Wiccan leaders said it was the first government-issued memorial plaque with a Wiccan pentacle -- a five-pointed star enclosed in a circle. More than 50 friends and family dedicated the plaque at Northern Nevada Veterans Cemetery, about 30 miles east of Reno.

Atheists are represented by an atomic spiral. How do you think magicians should be represented?
