Live a Wiccan, Die nothing

Apparently, our government does not “recognize” Wiccan paganism as a religion. And thus, Nevada National Guard Sgt. Patrick Stewart may not have the symbol of his beliefs placed on his marker.

I thought the literal text of the Constitution read, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….”

Apparently, that doesn’t matter to the executive branch. Small wonder.
