Wear a Big Pentacle Day!
When: September 22nd, every year.
Where: na, USA
Get out of the Broom Closet
Event Details: On September 22nd a foster child and her parents decided that they had had enough of the teachers taking off her pentacle and keeping it. The pentacles were never given back. The teachers lied and said that she never wore a pentacle to school when asked about it. But they said that she could not wear it in their school it was disruptive.
So on September 22nd they decided to let Sky wear mascara pentacles not unlike the ash Wednesday marks that catholics put on at their school which I had found to be allowed at school even though the principle claims they could not. She was suspended and they tried to expel her, the superintendent of the school district the very next day changed that, because we spoke out as Pagans!
While they agreed the mascara pentacles the size of a quarter were disruptive in a classroom environment. We all feel the same way. The point was, that wearing a Pentacle is a religious symbol and if Christians can wear crosses, Pagans can wear Pentacles.
Its really funny, that Christians are allowed to wear crosses in any way they wish in public without harassment.
Lets celebrate this direct action and capturing Americas attention by doing something to show solidarity for religious freedoms!
Always, wear your pentacle and other symbols of your faith proudly and don't let this happen to you. Wear it and refuse to take it off if it is noticeable that there are crosses or other religious symbols at your work or school that people wear.
And if you can get away with it, take some make-up and show the wold who you are and what you believe.
And when people ask you about it, tell them what happened and why you are doing it.
I mean, follow the rules, but hey it's the point really it will show these crazy people, that yes this nation's first amendment is the freedom to practice your religion in peace without harassment.
