Witch denied license to perform weddings at pagan ceremonies
Rosemary Kooiman, of Lanham MD, applied to Fairfax County Circuit Court for permission to officiate at marriages in her pagan religion - Wicca.
"I am not criticizing your beliefs," chief Judge F. Bruce Bach said. "But your religion does not qualify as a religious denomination."
Kooiman, 69, who said she was a self-ordained minister of a 50 member group, said she was disappointed by Bach's decision, and intends to appeal.
