To Whom it May Concern within the Chambers of Fox News Broadcasting,

I, along with many others around the world, would like to inquire how you get the rights to slander and mock a Religion that is older than your existence upon this planet? It amazes me that you feel you had the biggest set of manhood rounds to even air this rubbish we all had to endure on February 17.

To Whom it May Concern within the Chambers of Fox News Broadcasting,

I, along with many others around the world, would like to inquire how you get the rights to slander and mock a Religion that is older than your existence upon this planet? It amazes me that you feel you had the biggest set of manhood rounds to even air this rubbish we all had to endure on February 17. Now, We all know the Media enjoys twisting and altering facts to enhance news broadcasting statistics, but to down right speak on something you have absolutely no clue or research on is just blasphemy. Your knowledge of "The Old Religion" is not even worth a single inhale of oxygen. Let me ask, can YOU list off all of our "Holidays"? First off, let me enlighten you, They are not considered Holidays to us, they are considered a time for respect and thanks and we do not abuse our everyday life routine, such as school or work to do so. Sabbats and Esbats are a time for witches to become one with those we believe in for Diety and to become one with Nature and the Lunar cycles. Do you have any idea how much of your everyday life is based off of something in the Old Religion path? There is so much I could pick apart from your so called broadcasting, but let us start simple.

Can your reporters count? Let's see - We have 8 'Sabbats' that make up our Calander in a year, or as we call it, our Wheel of the Year cycle.

These are Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltain, Litha, Lughnasadh, and Mabon. Oh wait, I am not suppose to be able to list all of our Sabbats according to your high and mighty reporters. Oopsie.

Now, along side the Sabbats we have 13 Esbats - 13 Full Moons that occur every year. -Note, these are not considered 'Holidays' but are more for us giving praise and thanks and respect to the Goddess and the life Mother Nature shares with us and the Energy conducted from it.

Fact - Witches/Pagans do not honor just 'Halloween', All Hallow's Eve just also happens to be one of our Sabbats, Samhain. This is the day that the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead is at its thinnest. This is a good time for divination, renewal of life, a day where Witches cleanse that of negative auras from themselves and prepares to be renewed, or reborn for the next coming year. It is also not just Witches or Pagans who run festivals on Hallow's Eve. Many corners of the world celebrate and honor the dead, the passing of their loved ones. Have you done your research there as well to mock them? In fact, why not point out here that America in itself and it's stereo-typical marketing schemes has made All Hallow's Eve a laughable event? We should be asking you, How can WE take it seriously when you have turned it into some marketing candy infested masquerade?

Lets look at the statement I made of your everyday life which sits right along side the Wicca/Pagan/Old Religion tree. Ostara - Guess where your Easter sits? Yule - Oh Look, Christmas rides the waves too. Imbolc - Valentines Day? Are we seeing a pattern yet my little lambs or do you need imprints stamped all over your half closed eyes?

I wonder, just how much research you dabbled in before airing this nonsense you call news. As for some of these 'Holidays' being accepted as legit off days from such things as school or work, so be it, I speak for many of us I believe when I say, what makes our Sabbats any different than your Christian, Muslim, Jewish or any other religious traditions and holidays?

Here is another fact for you - Wicca/Paganism is not just a female "cliche" folks. Your statement of mid-aged housewives who like incense, irrelevant. There are as many MALE witches as there are female all over the world. See, that is another piece of fact you can chew on, we believe in equility in EVERYTHING we do. This includes male/female. You cannot have ONE, without the OTHER.

Contrary to what your staff and reporters might believe, You know nothing. You ask a few young bucks who are just barely living their life what it is to be pagan or wiccan and suddenly you are an expert to our ways of life and reason. Please.. That is just self-righteous and viewed as absolutely ridiculous. This whole broadcast was without facts, unorthodox, insulting and by far, the most idiotic view point you have ever aired. This is exactly why you will NEVER know the solid and true depth of Wicca or Paganism, the many who are TRUE to it remain in the 'broom-closet' because of social media hype scabs like yourself.

Before closing I would also like to point out, Wicca and Paganism, though have the same basics, are two different paths to some degree. Also, 'witchcraft' is not the main point of either segments, and it is not at all what your stereo-type minds consider it to be. I will not go into depth to this because small minds cannot possibly understand the nature of such magic'k'. I would also like to point out to the world, how did Pagan go from it's true meaning of 'Earth-Dweller' to something negative as sinner, or evil, or whatever else you may claim it to be? Tsk tsk.

In short, a major rise of society is outraged by this condensed set of minutes aired on a subject that should NEVER have been chuckled on by the likes of you. Do you know what Karma is - Think about it.

Apparently, this is not the first time Fox has attacked us - back in 2011, there is an archived video of them being kicked. http://video.foxnews.com/v/1118760543001/wiccan-days-included-on-college-calendar

Watching this broadcast just proves how little people know. AND that if you do NOT have the facts, you should NOT speak!

Wow most pagan holidays have been assimilated into Christian holidays. Wow, the guy on the left was really being a stereotyping ass. Smh

These guys would have been burned to the ground if they'd made light of Christianity or Islam. Sit up straight Fox News. Your rep isn't that good to begin with.

An apology to you heathens? 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.

I can not only name every Wiccan holiday, I can give you their historic roots and spiritual meaning. Oh, and I am grateful for anyone who derives spiritual peace on their own holidays, whatever their faith may be. These so called journalists don't sound respectful of anyone's faith. I wonder how they treat their own faith on the spiritual level?

I am NOT twice divorced woman! I have been married for 37 years! As stated earlier there are 8 Wiccan holidays NOT 20. More fox wrong information. Never mind that the chrisitan holidays were pagan to begin with. There are more of us pagans and Wiccans than they even realize!
