You should study any subject before reporting on it. It makes the reporters and Fox look uneducated and foolish. We as pagans deserve the respect of an apology for the poor reporting on a subject based in herbal lore and a history that has helped fuel medical discoveries that the world has reaped benefits from among other things. If your goal was to insult a culture that spans over many countries I wish to congratulate you. You have achieved your goal.

Don't these morons realize that "pagan" only means non-Christian, which includes Jews and Muslims... Fox news are only showing their stupidity over and over and over, what a crock. And YES, FOX NEWS MOUTHPIECE....YOU ARE A BIGOT. The idiots at Fox News should all be charged for denigrating the pagan religions in the media.... this is plainly hate-speech against a protected religion, and they should be held accountable. Where the hell did they get these idiots, High School dropouts?

nope cause lot people don't know what any meaning of what word mean cause they to busy wanting to blab there mouth before thinking Paganism (from Latin paganus, meaning "country dweller", "rustic"[1]) is a blanket term typically used to refer to religious traditions which are polytheistic or indigenous.

It is primarily used in a historical context, Greco-Roman polytheism as well as the polytheistic traditions of Europe and North Africa before Christianization. In a wider sense, extended to contemporary religions, it includes most of the Eastern religions and the indigenous traditions of the Americas, Central Asia, Australia and Africa; as well as non-Abrahamic folk religion in general. More narrow definitions will not include any of the world religions and restrict the term to local or rural currents not organized as civil religions. Characteristic of Pagan traditions is the absence of proselytism and the presence of a living mythology, which informs religious practice.

Ethnologists often avoid the term "pagan," with its uncertain and varied meanings, in referring to traditional or historic faiths, preferring more precise categories such as polytheism, shamanism, pantheism, or animism.

In the late 20th century, "Paganism", or more correctly "Neopaganism", became widely used in reference to adherents of various new religious movement including Wicca.[2] As such, various modern scholars have begun to apply the term to three groups of separate faiths: Historical Polytheism (such as Celtic polytheism, Norse Paganism, the Cultus Deorum Romanorum and Hellenic Polytheistic Reconstructionism also called Hellenismos), Folk/ethnic/Indigenous religions (such as Chinese folk religion and African traditional religion), and Neopaganism (such as Wicca and Neo-Druidism).

Hell yes, Kelley I agree completely, the problem is that charging them for hate-speech is the only legal remedy we have. It is not against any laws in the US for the media to lie... It IS, however against Federal Law to promote hate-speech against a religion as far as I know. Unfortunately in this country Fox News can't be charged for telling lies, it is considered protected under the 1st Amendment by the courts. There is no law in the United States that makes it illegal for the news media...

I didn't watch the clip... but I always thought "pagan" meant more than just non Christian... I thought it was more specific to nature worship, and especially in the Celtic tradition. I didn't think that religions such as Muslim and Judaism were considered Pagan.

watching this... it was clearly an editorial piece and not "news" per se... and as such, they can say what they want. The guy on the left was definitely a biggot. The girl really had nothing to add and was just there for eye candy, has probably been legally brain dead for years... I wouldn't really get angry or demand apologies. I would just label them idiots and move on. I've heard equally ignorant things said about Christians and especially about Catholics, and nothing is ever said...

I think it is still hate-speech, and they can be charged if the Federal govt. gives a rat's ass... which they probably don't. But like many have said, it's Fox news and typical of their ignorance.

I didn't think the federal government could actually do anything... as long as there was no violence or anything. We have had that idiot from Florida.. I forget his name now, the one that spews the anti-muslim rubbish here in Dearborn several times doing his thing at the big Mosque they have here. It's kind of stupid that police have to protect that kind of ignorance because he has "freedom of speech". I remember one time in Saginaw when I was a teenager, the KKK did a march through...

I remember one time in Saginaw when I was a teenager, the KKK did a march through the primarily black downtown and the police again had to protect the marchers with their sheets and their signs because of freedom of speech... all at the expense of the tax payers and business owners who had to board up their stores for the day in fear of violence breaking out.

Hmm and why are you looking at pagan and witch info ?bottom line we should have respect for all religions which you don't so in my eyes you are no true Christian and if you were you would also know your holidays are based on pagan holidays and the Christmas Easter Halloween were all chosen to convert pagans to Christianity have some respect and not be rude~and it's odd you know so much of what the devil so called likes you must mingle with him over tea

I believe Fox news is banned in Canada because they don't support lies in the media...We need to respect all faiths...Fox is trash-we know this-no surprise here.... they should apologize but won't Blessed Be )O(.

that only applies to Canadian broadcasting.

Fox News should either be banned or have a disclaimer that states that they don't report news and their material is not based on facts. Claiming to be news is misleading and irresponsible.

This country was FOUNDED on the Principle of Freedom of Religion by religious groups and people who were persecuted in their original countries because their religious beliefs did not follow those of the Majority or State Sanctioned religion. It's truly SAD that 230 plus years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, that we have come full circle, and Too many people in this country today seem to think that "Freedom of Religion" is only for "Christian" religions! SHAME on you...
