I am not twice divorced. Been with the same man for over 20 years. Married to him for 13 of those. We have 3 kids and live in a decent sized town. I don't play Dungeons and Dragons. And I get migraines from incense. Yes, I can name all the Sabbats, of which there are 4 major, and 4 minor, which are Esbats. Now I can list them from their beginnings, or, by the Christian holiday that "borrowed" from the pagan holiday. And actually, not all pagans are witches, and not all witches are...

I am certainly glad I am not an American, for I would be ashamed to be part of a country that could belittle a sacred belief so easily, and so effortlessly. What a wonderful way to teach tolerance, compassion, and acceptance of the difference's in others, and in case you missed it, that was dripping in sarcasm.

You three are WAY out of line. You should truly study your facts before spouting off and making yourself look stupid in front of a nation of people.

It's not just a nation of people. This is quite globally shared by now.

I am a 25 year old Canadian woman in a very happy and healthy common-law relationship. Yes, I play video games, but I also have a life, friends, and a great job. I have been a Solitary Wiccan since age 16. Paganism is more main-stream today than these Fox "newscasters" realize!

I am SO offended by the sheer ignorance of these people! They're sitting there spouting of about a recognized religion they obviously know NOTHING about! Don't talk about something in a news segment when you haven't bothered to educate yourself on what your spewing your hateful, bigoted, ignorant mouth off about! And, just an fyi, I am not a D&D player nor a twice divorced midwife in a rural area! I'm a successful adult & I guarantee you there are more of us around you than you realize! As...

As for trying to compare it to christians mot being able to say merry christmas, how about not being able to openly state your religion at all, let alone give a holiday greeting! To the 'human' sitting on the left who said he didn't want to come off as a bigot - here's a NEWSFLASH for you: YOU ARE A BIGOT!!!

Oh, and incense gives me a headache... Does that mean I can't be a Wiccan anymore? Smh What ignorance.

Wow, just...wow. Apparently they didn't even do a cursory wikipedia search on the topic. That was an incredibly uneducated piece of journalism.

Lol, they gave their personal opinions and conmon stereotypes. I say live and let live. Just because someones belief system is different from yours, does not give you the right to bash them.

If brains were dynamite, these three together couldn't blow their noses! I wonder who they allegedly spoke with to research wicca or paganism. I beat its another twist of the truth. If you will recall, this country was founded by Puritans who were fleeing persecution for their faith... So more than 200 years later its OK to persecute others for a faith that you don't understand?

I, too, am Pagan and not a middle aged, twice divorced woman, nor am I a mid-wife... actually I find what these people said a statement on how totally uneducated they are. Pagans and Wiccans are not the same thing. Twenty holidays... ridiculous! You can say Merry Christmas all you want to if I am allowed to say Happy Yule in return. I do not make fun of your holy days... how is it you think you can make fun of mine. Quote "How can I take anyone serious who holds Halloween sacred?" It...

I do not make fun of your holy days... how is it you think you can make fun of mine. Quote "How can I take anyone serious who holds Halloween sacred?" It is not Halloween to us anyway. How is it that you can expect respect from us without respect given in return. Also, you may find out that there are a lot more Pagan and Wiccan folks out in the world than you may think. Maybe your religion should teach you about loving one another and not throwing the first stone unless you are without sin... Oh, wait, it does! YOU JUST DID NOT LEARN IT!

As a side note I'd like to meet a pagan or Wiccan that can actually pronounce their holy days by their proper pronunciation. The days are based on Celtic names so learn the proper Gaelic and Brythonic pronunciation please!!!

Not all Pagans follow the same holy days, nor follow the same beliefs. Take American Indians for an example, their beliefs and ways are considered Pagan, so is Buddhist. Any belief that is not Judaism, Christianity, Islam, or the Baha'i is Pagan.

This is what America has come to... Freedom of religion my ass. If someone came on making fun of the Christian religion I bet there would be an uprising..... This is sad and an example of how ignorant people are.
