Marine veteran of the Vietnam War.
I dropped out of my local Vietnam Veterans of America post after if became evident
they were more interested in their own positions than in doing much of anything. I
got into some conflict by mentioning the simple fact that veterans, at least Vietnam
ones, often end upon the extreme of issues like religion or the lack of it, patriotism to
don't mention the government or flag. Needless to say my being a Wiccan didn't go over
well. They spent their start up money on fancy marching uniforms and have had to beg
space off the Disabled American Veterans every since in my town.
- offend anyone you like david, they;ll (even me) get over it. rk----- Original Message -----From: Rev.

So it's okay to offend some Pagans (previous posting regarding
criticism of messing with the Pentagram to which these people would
systematically be told to "get over it") but not okay to offend
Veterans/Military Personnel (posting purple heart)? Why can one
group "get over it" but not another? We're going to hold a military
symbol as more sacred than a religious symbol? Food for thought.
