For the information of everyone; many christian holidays are based on pagan holidays. Back when the Christians were trying to convert the pagans they added and integrated the pagan holidays into Christianity hoping for more converts. Easter is based on a spring holiday hence the easter bunny and Jesus was born in July. They changed yule to Christmas to hook the Vikings. I don't currently claim any religion bit I don't want to be labeled ignorant either.

This is why people with an education don't listen to fox 'news'. You'll never hear them post anything negative about that old howling hillbilly pat robertson though.

making fun of Christians. Bobbie Jo Justice Bobbie Jo Justice, she is the reason that I am hear to look at what you potty mouths are going on about. 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...

Take a good dose of soothing butt ointment with you. Cheers.

I have been a pagan for over half my life, I have never ever played dungeons and dragons nor do I have any desire to. Get your heads out of your asses. Witches are all around. They are just clueless. I doubt this petition will make the close minded individuals to apologize but MAYBE open their eyes a llttlle.

I have played the game back when I was a kid, and I have partied with many a pagan. Wonder what that makes me?

Most of society lives in a rural area. Most religions use incense. Everyone will become middle age eventually. I have no idea where they get the twice divorced information from and most of the D&D players I know are not wiccan nor Pagan. 20 holidays? They need to research before they report.

Gah! How are they allowed to just spew random nonsense like that? It really shouldn't be considered a news station anymore, but rather "conservative white opinions"

I am not as "PC" as most others in my faith, have never played D&D, am a 240lbs former full contact MMA fighter and exist comfortably in a regular world. I even have a moon tattooed on my forehead and I promise you I have never had one derogatory remark in my direction. lol I have no problem with the phrase Merry Christmas, or what other Americans choose to worship. It is amazing that such dim witt is rewarded with a job and viewership.

Not a Wiccan, but have Wiccan/Pagan friends, And I know some of the Holidays! *L*
Also, when the lady said she didn't know any Pagans... My immediate thought was, "Of course you don't, they haven't TOLD YOU they're Pagan! Tlhey KNOW what your response would be and don't want to go there!"
Then they go off on stereotypes! Ugh! *tries hard NOT to bang her head on her desk...*.
Anyways, I think it's kind of cool that the University they were talking about acknowledges a diversity of student...

So very ironic that Fox doesn't say anything about all those Jewish Holidays which have probably been acknowledged by schools either and they have just about as many major holidays as Pagans! (thinking Rosh Hoshanah, Yom Kippur, Purim, Hannukah, Passover... Oooh and many of them are Multi-day holidays!)
Just an extra thought or two...

It was actually Jewish students who had the most holidays at the University (11). Cached version of original Media Matters article breaks it down: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache%3Amediamatters.org%2Fblog%2F2013%2F02%2F17%2Ffox-news-attacks-wiccans%2F192713

I will sign it when liberals openly apologize for insulting Romney's faith all through the election. You want YOUR "nutty" faith to be treated with respect? Treat his, and all "nutty" religions (yes, I think they all are, to an extent) with the same courtesy. You can't mock a man for his faith, and then cry when someone challenges yours.

I think you have the wrong people who were attacking his faith, again that was the conservative Christians, not the liberals who really don't care what your religion is, rather your character.

If they had done any research at all they would have found that Christmas and Easter and pretty much most of the Christian holidays have pagan origins.

People fear what they don't understand. I would like to think research would be done on anything that gets reported. However, we are talking about Fox here. A prerequisite for attaining employment there seems to be bigotry and stupidity. I would like to think that anyone who actually saw this would look into wicca to educate themselves. Please do not take these "news people" seriously. It's such a sad state when these false things can be said on a "news" program. Love and light to everyone this affects.
