Crystal educate your self fool !
To whom it may concern,
After viewing the video on "Wiccans, Pagans, and people who support Freedom of Religion along with Equality", I have come to the conclusion that your news people have NO idea what they're talking about! You are sooooo misinformed! For one, Wiccans do not celebrate 20 holidays, and if you had any sense what-so-ever you would have known that. Our holidays have been stole by the Christians, do your research if you're so up date! (which you're not) Who ever wrote this...

(which you're not) Who ever wrote this article on "To: Wiccans, Pagans, and People who support Freedom of Religion, along with Equality."was a total idiot. And "I" for one who AM Wiccan can name all my holidays... I am not a midwife, I have not been divorced three times, and I don't burn incense all the time. Why don't you come to one of our Sabbats and get an idea of what Wicca truly is about instead of drumming up ignorant ideas and spreading your lies to the population. It is astounding to me that somebody with such an education, and to have a position in the public eye can be so ignorant to what is truth. The sad part is that lack of knowledge creates ignorance, and ignorance creates hatred, because that which you don't know you speak wrongly about, therefore leaving truth in the dark and then ignorance abounds.
Which leaves me to say, you owe the Wiccan/Pagan community a MUCH needed apology.
Sincerely, Kimberly A. G. Braddy 1st Degree Wiccan Priestess.
Who in my case are several. :)
I am just astounded at the absolute prejudice and the laughing from these "people"! I am also not twice divorced and living in a rural area! I live in the city of Melbourne Australia. A Wiccan is not hand in hand with a Pagan, it falls under the Pagan umbrella. Wiccans do not all practice witchcraft. Wicca is a religion and witchcraft is a practice of healing and helping others as well as ourselves in a way that "Harms NONE" Education is what they need and I had my mouth open this...

Signed this petition and an apology is soooo needed!
Thank you for sharing Sevyn )O(
Why are your feathers so ruffled up over this silly news cast? Christians and Jews are a constant target from the media and you don't see us crying over it. Grow some thick skin and get over it. Everyone has their right to freedom of speech. That doesn't mean we have to listen!
Christians make up the largest group of any single religious faith. Just sayin'.
So let me get this straight... In my religion, a priest can molest a child and get away with it. Doesn't make the news and he doesn't get any punishment other then sending him to isreal until we forget it? That's cute. But someone with other religious beliefs is a joke? I think these guys need to do more research on who's religion is really the joke. And that's coming from a Catholic. Sad how petty this world has become.
yep so true this whole thing is joke as pagan my self i not upset over this I find this funny cause so many people want be so P.C lol so what what one may think about something they have ever right to believe what they want say what they want as everyone has the right to comment back their feeling too but in the long run it just endless joke with no punch line lol
Suck it up and quit your bitchin'. Christians have been doing it for over 2000 years.
and there no sign of stopping lol :P
I originally read the recap, and there were only two paragraphs at the end that were the least bit derogatory. Most of it seemed focused on the Jews, Buddhists and Hindus, with honorable mention to the Muslims and Taoists, and I don't think the Jews and Muslims are what anyone would consider "Pagan." Then I really don't consider Heathens to be all that nihilistic.
I just got to watch the video of the news spot, and I am not the least bit angry. I am disappointed. Your under-educated,...
I just got to watch the video of the news spot, and I am not the least bit angry. I am disappointed. Your under-educated, unprepared hosts were pandering to the far right Christian religious conservatives that are only a part of your viewership. I am a rather devoted viewer, and I haven’t played D&D since I was in college in the early ‘80s. I am not a middle-aged, cat owning, twice divorced woman. I would love to live in the country, but my life has been tied to our nation’s major urban centers. I am a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, a career law enforcement officer, a career reservist, and a community volunteer. I hold a BSCJ in Law Enforcement and Public Safety, an Undergraduate Certificate in Homeland Security, and I am a Master’s Candidate for a dual major in Homeland Security and Justice Management. I am a veteran of four wars and three overseas deployments. I have spent my entire adult life serving my community, state and nation, and I am a moderately conservative, Libertarian Pagan.
Fox News, you might be surprised at the number of non fuzzy bunny pagans who are extremely conservative, especially in the Heathen Kinfolk. I am a Heathen, not a Wiccan. I am rather conservative. I am part of that population of most of the electorate, just right of center middle class American. Though, I am likely a little more right than some. I believe in our Constitution, and understand how the Second Amendment is the protection of the First and all the other Amendments. I am disappointed at the tenor of the hosts of this news spot. I am disappointed at production and management staff that would allow this type of imbalanced presentation. I truly expect more from the Anti-CNN channel. I am the target market and voter you should be trying to include and court for your candidates, not the one you should be excluding and trying to marginalize. I deserve better for my life long service and sacrifice protecting your rights as the Fourth Estate. I deserve your equal protection for exercising my First Amendment Rights.
The article was considerably better.
My oldest daughter is a Christian, single mother of two, and just happens to be a nursing student who is intending to become a midwife. There are fantastic professionals in that community of RNs who chose to deliver our children, help us with our prenatal and immediate post natal care, and I hope to salute my Registered Nurse Midwife daughter as an Army Officer some day soon too.
In addition, it's very silly of them to say that "we" trample their rights to observe their holidays, but the second pagans and wiccans want recognition of our holidays, it's a sin and it shouldn't be done. Double standards for the win.
like been trying to say to other why should it matter what someone say I don't mind what faith one is if someone come up to me and wish me a Merry Christmas and not going to get mad at them I would thank them and I even say Merry Christmas back to as respect to them and those should do the same if I say happy holiday to someone not be disrespectful I just being nice and not passing judgment So yeah lot people today need stop with the double stander :)
They look so unprofessional. It's so sad. I hope their ignorance, little intelligence, and snobby attitudes doesn't continue to get the best of them.
sadly nope it won't stop them lol
Ok hi am a baptist and I know many pagans and just because they have diffrent belifes don't mean that thes idiots have a right to say thes horrible things I challange theses reporters to do a report on the pagan religion then maybe they won't be so aragant
it would be nice if people would do that but sadly the world is what it is I learn to take with grin of salt and don't let what one say get under my skin and all should do the same but you know we all wish people would use there head before speaking but they don't lol
