I'm still unsure what's going on none of the links I found are working...

That's strange. I JUST had it up and it was working. Basically Tucker Carlson on Fox News bashed Pagans and Wiccans and really overgeneralized and stereotyped them as a culture. Saying they are all "twice divorced middle-aged women living in rural areas who like incense or Dungeons and Dragons players." And basically that their holidays should not be included in the Missouri University list of holidays AND that he can't even take the religious practice seriously because it centers around "Halloween".

Please have some sense of humor. I know THEY didn't, this is a very tasteless joke, but you cannot ask people to be apologetic about their jokes. Are we gonna go after Fox News like muslim extremists going after some fuckin' Mohammed caricature?

Maybe some of it was meant to be jokes but most of it was presented as NEWS and factual when it was not. There are dozens of inaccuries, misreprentations, and bigoted remarks in only 3 min. time. If you don't understand what the problem is please read this article. http://semrys.blogspot.com/2013/02/fox-news-anti-wiccan-diatribe-insulted.html

I heard NOTHING negative about Wiccans or pagan's that Fox news said. But, I will tell you this, God said we are NOT to practice any type of paganism...any type. This can be dangerous in more ways than one. Believe me when I say, God has a very good reason for people to stay away from such things.

Sarah, you are right about that. Holloween, easter, christmas are all pagan and God said not to practice them. We as a nation have gotten away from Gods true holy days [ they are in Lev ]. I for one have been doing his holy days now for 45 years and counting. I don't do the pagan days. My mom was a witch and practiced it for many years and she wanted to get me into it, but I had a gut feeling it was wrong and down through the years I found out why. All of this can be most dangerous. I truly know it can be and I know why.

I will tell you this though and there is a way for you to find out if I'm right or wrong...most all of those that practice this stuff, satan already has his hand on them. Now, if you don't believe me, try giving up, either your thoughts that its okay or if you are practicing any of this, trying giving it up and begin just reading your bible and see what happens...and it will either happen right away or later, but you'll see what I mean.

You know what's really sad? I'm a Christian who doesn't follow the beliefs and ideals of Pagans or Wiccans, but I know that what was said was wrong. Somehow, its a break of tradition for other religions to have their holidays be recognized? I thought we lived in America, where free religion was encouraged. Making fun of Wiccans and saying durogatory things about their lifestyle and holidays is pathetic. No matter what anyone's religion, this should not be tolerated.

I don't subscribe to really an religion, but I think everyone should be free to practice what they wish. Almost every Wiccan/Pagan I've met have been kind and really relaxed. I just can't handle intolerance due to ignorance. Educate yourself before you make an ass of yourself, Fox News "Reporters".
