Wiccans in our midst, once again

WorldNetDaily, known to its readers as "WorldNutDaily," headlines, "Wiccans Meeting on Air Force Base." (The shock of it!) The chaplains, as usual, are outspokenly in favor of the idea. Most military chaplains do support the idea of Pagan congregations.

This quote illustrates a weird kind of acceptance for Pagan military personnel:

Tim Wildmon, president of American Family Association [the "family values" people], said he didn't see how the Wiccans' meetings could be stopped, as long as the participants are not "committing violent acts or subverting the American government," adding, "I disagree obviously with their faith, but I don't see it as a threat to the military."

Wildmon noted that he has a much bigger problem with Muslims in the military.

"They ought to say no Muslims in the American military," he told WND. "Wicca doesn't teach, as far as I know, what Islam teaches about killing the infidel. Muslims in the American military are a much greater danger to the institution than is Wicca."
