AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — An ordained Pagan priest has gotten the OK to wear goat horns in his Maine driver's license photo. Phelan Moonsong says that unless he's sleeping or bathing, he always wears his goat horns, which serve as his spiritual antennae and help him educate others about Paganism. Moonsong applied for an updated driver's license in August, but had to appeal his goat horn photo to the Secretary of State's office.
