This might be something my place of employment would send to its employees.

My guess (based on little knowledge and much speculation) is that the wheel represents the Buddhist Wheel of Life. Not sure.

You are correct, sir. Here's the badge for Buddhist chaplains in the US military:

OK - I can see that. Now, Mr. Henn Co Govt worker - then what does that funny #3 mean?


I think it to be a Hindu symbol. Not sure, however.

You are also correct. Here's a graphic I found searching Google Image Search for "Hindu." The one on the card doesn't seem complete though.

My guess is Arabic script. Don't read Arabic, but it does resemble symbols/writing I saw in Ayasofia in Istanbul years ago.

I do read Arabic, and it's definitely not Arabic. Since it's a Hindu symbol, I'd guess it's a script from one of the many languages in India.

I think we should all gather around the campfire and feel all warm inside! NOT... :evil:

Indeed, that symbol is Hindu, and is in a form of Sanskrit script. It is the one actually pronounced "OM", which is considered a sacred word of god.

The Muslim symbol is the crescent at 6 o'clock. What's the funky thing at about 10 o'clock?

Ahhhhhhhh, I stand corrected on the Hindu glyph. Hinduism was never one of my strong points. :oops:

OK, you got me with the symbol at 10 o'clock. I don't even have a stupid guess as to what that could be.

It looks like 10 o'clock is the Islamic Crescent.

I thought that was at about six by the pink triangle and the yin-yang symbol.

I think you are correct sir. That brings us back to the original question, what is that thing?

Why aren't gun owners represented in there? Isn't this for diversity? Is not ownership and use of guns a religion, at least as much as some indicated there? What about the Church of the Revolver or the the Synagog of the Slide Guns....... :shock:

I'd guess the thing at 10 is a rainbow.
