MOONDRAGON'S CULTURAL DIVERSITY INFORMATION


This web page is dedicated to the creative, open-minded, resourceful and humanitarian individuals and groups that encourage world peace, international diversity in all of its wonderful colors, religions, cultural societies, and lifestyles, past, present, and future. Hate, bigotry, prejudice, and all the "-isms" (such as racism, genderism, and sexism) are learned social problems, not genetic ones. They can be treated and prevented by eliminating the fears that fuel them through education and social interactions. Support racial, sexual and religious tolerance and cultural diversity. Life is not just vanilla or chocolate. Sometimes we all like diversity in our lives such as strawberry swirl, banana split, pistachio, and coconut tutti frutti as a choice.

WitchVox: 'Symbol' The Veteran Pentacle Quest Has Been Graced with An Anthem

- Story and update on the quest of Sgt. Patrick Stewart's family to have a pentacle placed upon his headstone as a symbol of his Wiccan religious affiliation.

On September 25, 2005, Sgt. Patrick Stewart was Killed in Action fighting in Afghanistan during the United States war on terrorism. Sgt. Stewart was the recipient of a Purple Heart and Bronze Star. It has long been a practice in this country for the Veteranís Administration to say "Thank you for your service to our country" by providing a headstone or marker to fallen veterans who served in the armed forces. Upon the marker or headstone, could be placed a "Symbol" representing the religious affiliation of the fallen soldier, a representation, if you will, depicting not how the soldier died, but how he or she lived.

In support of Sgt. Stewart and his family and other Wiccan Veterans, MoonDragon offers support by providing links to this effort so that they can continue to work towards having the Veteran's Administration approve the Pentacle Symbol for all Wiccans and other Pagans serving this country in the U.S. Military. Please visit these links and offer your support!

Other petitioners and their families requesting the Pentacle Symbol to be put on their beloved veteran family members:
  • Kathleen Egbert of Laurel, MD, daughter of World War II veteran Abraham Kooiman, a Wiccan who was buried in Arlington National Memorial Cemetery in 2003
  • Patricia Darlene Howell Corneilson of Kentucky, mother of James Price, a Wiccan who was killed in action while serving in the Army in Iraq in 2004
  • Scott Stearns of Kent, WA, a retired disabled U.S. Navy veteran discharged in 1997 and a member of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church

MoonDragon supports all of our military veterans serving our country, Wiccan-Pagan and all other spiritual pathways, in time of peace and time of war, giving their lives that we may continue to have and enjoy our freedoms and way of life in this country.
Blessed Be.

News Update: Wiccans Settle Military Grave Lawsuit
By SCOTT BAUER (AP)
MADISON, Wis. (April 24, 2007) - The Wiccan pentacle has been added to the list of emblems allowed in national cemeteries and on goverment-issued headstones of fallen soldiers, according to a settlement announced Monday. A settlement between the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Wiccans adds the five-pointed star to the list of "emblems of belief" allowed on VA grave markers. Eleven families nationwide are waiting for grave markers with the pentacle, said Selena Fox, a Wiccan high priestess with Circle Sanctuary in Barneveld, Wisconsin, a plaintiff in the lawsuit. The settlement calls for the pentacle, whose five points represent earth, air, fire, water and spirit, to be placed on grave markers within 14 days for those who have pending requests with the VA. I am glad this has ended in success in time to get markers for Memorial Day, Fox said. The VA sought the settlement in the interest of the families involved and to save taxpayers the expense of further litigation, VA spokesman Matt Burns said. The agency also agreed to pay $225,000 in attorneys' fees and costs. The pentacle has been added to 38 symbols the VA already permits on gravestones. They include commonly recognized symbols for Christianity, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism, as well as those for smaller religions such as Sufism Reoriented, Eckiankar and the Japanese faith Seicho-No-Ie. "This settlement has forced the Bush Administration into acknowledging that there are no second class religions in America, including among our nation's veterans," said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which represented the Wiccans in the lawsuit. The American Civil Liberties Union said the agreement also settles a similar lawsuit it filed last year against the VA. In that case, the ACLU represented two other Wiccan churches and three individuals. VA-issued headstones, markers and plaques can be used in any cemetery, whether it is a national one such as Arlington or a private burial ground like that on Circle Sanctuary's property. Wicca is a nature-based religion based on respect for the earth, nature and the cycle of the seasons.
