Scott Stearns started on the Pagan path when he was in the US Navy in 1996. He started working for the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2002 and in 2006 noticed that the VA did not recognize the Pentacle as an emblem of belief. There were several requests to have the Pentacle as an emblem of belief. So, he started a letter writing campaign. He was not alone in this venture and in 2007 their request was granted.

Tune in as I interview Scott Stearns, Elder of Covenant of the Blue Moon Church, and learn about his journey of religious freedom in life and death.

Scott’s full bio-

I started on the Pagan path while I was in the US Navy in 1996. I was medically retired in 1997 because I was diagnosed with Leukemia. A group of us started the a steady group in 1997 that became the Bluemoon Coven in 1999. We decided that we need some formal training, so we turned to the ATC. We became dedicates of the ATC in 2000. I started working for the Department of veterans Affairs in 2002 and in 2006 I noticed that the VA did not recognize the Pentacle as an emblem of belief. I contacted Rev Pete “Pathfinder” Davis, the head of the ATC. I did a Freedom of Information request to the Department of Veterans Affairs. There were several requests to have the Pentacle as an emblem of belief. I started a letter writing campaign. I was not alone in this venture and in 2007 our request was granted. Today I enjoy being an Elder, Mentor and teacher in the Bluemoon Church. I also really enjoy helping pagan veterans with their claims for compensation.

Rev. Scott Stearns
