Interfaith Religious Rights Rally To Be Held at Farragut Square Park on the Fourth of July

Wiccan Soldier's Widow to Speak About VA Approval of Religious Symbols


June 23, 2006, Silver Spring, Maryland--An Interfaith Religious Rights Rally will be held at Farragut Square Park between Noon and 4 PM on America's birthday, the Fourth of July. The rally is in support of universal religious tolerance and free exercise for all religions, as guaranteed in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

Speakers include:

  • Rev. Barry Lynn, spokesperson of Americans United for Separation of Church and State
  • Jared Leland, Esq., spokesperson for The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty
  • Phyllis Curott, Esq., author and priestess
  • Rev. Selena Fox, senior minister of Circle Sanctuary
  • Caroline Casey, radio host and author
  • H. Byron Ballard, United Religions Initiative
  • Diotima Mantineia, editor, The Witches' Voice
  • Roberta Stewart, widow of Sgt. Patrick Stewart
Our most special guest is Roberta Stewart, widow of Sgt. Patrick Stewart, who was shot down in Afghanistan in 2005. Sgt. Stewart was Wiccan. Currently, the Veterans Administration has approved 38 symbols of faith that may appear on veterans' memorial plaques, but the Wiccan pentacle is not among them.

Roberta Stewart is coming to Washington for the first time to speak out about this violation of her husband's Constitutional rights.

For more information, call Caroline Kenner at 301-412-1760, email or call Angie Buchanan at 847-456-4833, email

Thank you!
