I think that is is very sad that actual news people can get on t.v. and with their lack of knowledge, bash what they are scared of. I work at a bank..I am middle aged but, I have followed in the footsteps of my family and my children are now in my footsteps. NO, they don't teach the history in schools because there would be a war there too, Pagans have been around longer than Christians...sorry there is the truth and the Christian faith has been tailored around the Pagan faith so that more...

Will We, as a Unified group of enlightened, and deeply Religious People, stand firm together to right the words thrown at Us , slandering and mocking Our Beliefs? To what avail do these dull minded people hope to have come forth from these remarks. I say We shall prevail upon the Stones of Mother Earth and have these few weak minded individuals come forth and offer a sincere apology to a Religious Group, of which the Government of the United States has recognized, and the Spirits...

They really do need to apologize, they are being a$$holes by making jokes about Wiccans and being cruel by stereotyping them as some kind of 'nerds' or 'social outcasts'. I'm not Wiccan, but I have respect for other people and their religions, even the ones I don't agree with. The school needs to figure out what it's going to do, if anything at all. IMO all schools should adopt a policy for religious holidays that says people who take the day off for a holiday will have an excused...

IMO all schools should adopt a policy for religious holidays that says people who take the day off for a holiday will have an excused absence for that day. Then no one religion will be 'in control' of when school breaks are scheduled. Most holidays have their origins in Pegan holidays that are older than Christianity. The woman in the middle who seems to think people would be in some kind of trouble for saying Merry Christmas is full of sh#t. Not once have I ever heard of anyone not being able to say that, I've never seen anyone get in trouble or put down for it. That idea comes from people who don't know what they're talking about, and using it as an excuse to complain that OTHER PEOPLE EXIST in the world who are of different religions. I've said Marry Christmas and no one has ever tried to force me to say Happy Holidays. People like that are the same kind of people who say 'You're taking Christ out of Christmas if you write Xmas.' They are too stupid to know that X is actually a Christian symbol to represent Christ and has been used since the 1500s.

I'm not Wiccan, but I am still a life long pagan and I cannot figure out what these 20 holidays are. I know of 8, and a few of those are already national holidays under a different name. I don't see what the big deal is with this story that Fox felt the need to report it.....oh yeah, it's Fox. What I find offensive is the stereotyping. What ever happened to news being just that, news. It's not a place for personal opinion. Go on a morning talk show to voice your opinion....oh yeah....it's Fox 'news'.

Sad to see idiotic people spew bigotry and misconceptions when they are supposed to report FACTS, not opinions

I signed the petition and I'm a Christian. In my church, we are taught hate against anyone it wrong. That we are to love everyone equally whether we agree with them or not. I love you all and what Fox said in their interview was degrading and insulting from my point of view. And by the way, I play Dungeons and Dragons, there is nothing wrong with someone using their imaginations in a constructive and intuitive way with their friends.

I am a Pagan and I for one am TIRED of only being "allowed" to have Christian holidays shoved into my life! I can name the Pagan holidays too, but just for arguments sake say I trade 4 of mine for 4 of theirs we all come out equal in the end! Christians think they OWN the world and they aren't even the biggest organized religion- Their ZOMBIE WORSHIP will be the down fall of us all!

Nice to see the 'we have killed more people in the name of our god than cancer' crowd insulting something of which they have no clue. Hell, just throw in a few Jew, gay, black, Muslim and Mexican jokes in and you have the high score in Bigot Bingo! You have just lost a viewer and listener for good.
