Virginia County Allows Wiccan Priestess To Officiate At Weddings
Americans United reports that last month Arlington County, Virginia officials relented on an earlier refusal and have issued an order permitting a Wiccan high priestess to officiate at wedding ceremonies. Literata Hurley appeared to meet the requirements of Va. Code Sec. 20-23 for approval. She was ordained by the Order of the White Moon, a non-profit organization. Initially the clerk of court refused to approve her because her congregation has no permanent location, but meets in members' homes or outdoors.
