Ye CAN Have Ye Pentacle


The Department of Veterans Affairs has settled the lawsuit over allowing the Wiccan pentacle on graves in national cemeteries (story here). The pentacle has been added to the list of available emblems of faith. It's 37, but it's not old.

The atheist symbol is awesomely Populuxe. I love Friendly Mr. Atom! Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with atheism, and I suspect that people exposed to sick-making levels of radiation probably have a higher incidence than average of suddenly believing in God.
