Wiccan Not a Religion (in the U.S.)
It seems that in the United States military (which supposedly fights for Amendment I of the Bill of Rights), the Wiccan religion is not recognized. The issue has come up because Sergeant Patrick Stewart was Wiccan and died when his helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan. But the use of a pentagram on his memorial is not authorized by the government, as it is not a "recognized" religion.
