I wouldn't mind signing and posting it to all my feeds, but like Tammy Morton, I want to read this before I sign it. I went to the link everyone is posting. What I GOT was 4 0 4 NOT FOUND And I searched the site for it and came up with nothing. There is nothing there about the story. I'd LOVE to sign this as I am a Pagan, but I won't do it without first reading up on it. So sorry.

You can google it and see how I fought my case. I do seriously think some kind of action, or apology, should be made from these people thinking our religion is a joke.

You are so sick in the head that it is only by Satan's help that you can stand and talk this rubbish. What a load of gibberish that comes sprouting from the mouths of you people who call yourselves pagan and wiccans. The Devil is your master and he is whispering lies into your ears and just to keep you occupied the devil has demons who will rape you for eternity, you see, he likes wiccans and pagans. Take a good dose of soothing butt ointment with you. Cheers.

Basically, they attack Wicca and paganism and the University of Missouri's decision to include the Wiccan sabbats in their schedules so exams can be scheduled around the sabbats to give pagan students time to celebrate.

If they thought Pagans wouldn't fight back, they're going to get a rude awakening. That petition has far exceeded the number of signatures required, not to mention the people who are genuinely pissed off right now and making public statements against them.

Just to remind everyone, freedom of religion does include all spiritualities. Freedom of speech and expression applies to us all, also. The world is big enough for many ways of being and many belief systems.

yes, but they sounded like total arrogant assholes on the air and they should have had their facts straight and perhaps talked to a few Wiccans before they started speaking in the manner they did.

I agree, Sondra. We all have a freedom to feel and express how we feel about things. Sadly, I've seen far too many people on ALL sides of this issue act like ignorant rear ends, stereo-typing and playing the blame game. If this is in fact based on something said on a commentary show, then folks need to get over it. Christians face a lot of hate, too, because some jack-offs decide to practice hate in the name of their god. Muslims face the same prejudice. I no longer subscribe to any...

Christians face a lot of hate, too, because some jack-offs decide to practice hate in the name of their god. Muslims face the same prejudice. I no longer subscribe to any particular religion, simply because I find wisdom and truth in virtually all of them, at the same time I find a lot of prejudiced junk, generally because of twisted translations. You want to prove to these guys you are not what they think? Going around whining and demanding that they apologize isn't going to make you look mature or educated. And it's not going to make you look respectable. Try offering an interview on their show to explain your beliefs. Otherwise, grow a thicker skin and get over it. This country needs to go back to recognizing that "free speech" means that others are entitled to disagree with you, without having to apologize for exercising their rights.

@ Jennifer .....Fox New as a whole has a long and sordid history as it is. Standing up to them is the right thing to do. Demanding an apology is immature Jennifer ??? Really ? It makes one look 'uneducated' ? How so ? And do you not realize that these kinds of shows will NOT want a Wiccan or Pagan on their show for an interview ? That's not how they operate. They are a sounding board for the close-minded, right wing, conservatives. They need to apologize ! PERIOD.

Religious defamation is a hot button in the international community. That is not the issue here. Faux News lack of accurate reporting and dubious fact checking is. There are factually 8 Pagan holidays -- not 20. Another fact is that the membership of both communities is richly diverse in age, race, gender, and social strata and not made up of twice divorced middle aged women who like incense. As an individual, Tucker, and his two flying monkey companions may express whatever bigoted opinion...

As an individual, Tucker, and his two flying monkey companions may express whatever bigoted opinion they like but as employees of Faux News and as alleged journalists, do they have some responsibility at accurate reporting? That remains to be seen in the days to come and how much exposure this receives.

Get over it, is like telling a child to get over hurt feelings.
It is not the hurt feelings, it is the Defamtion of Character this can cause, false information on the biggest "news" channel, just because they wear ( and are) to lazy to do research. So I don't care about Christans at this point because they get a way with a lot of shit. So it time for Wiccans, Pagans, a Witches to take a stand. This is not helping with the fear people have.
