Shouldn't journalists do some research on topics they present? What a bunch of morons.

This is absolutely unacceptable in every way and was obviously premeditated. Personally, I don't think that a recant or an apology is enough in this case. I think that everyone at Fox News who were involved in this broadcast should be immediately terminated.

I have a Petition for a NATIONAL apology on Facebook if anyone is interested--I am also promoting this Cause Page through my profile and my Pages.

I don't know about Pagan holidays... but I know that Sabbats are the only WICCAN holidays that I personally recognize.

Yule: December 21st, the Winter Solstice. Celebration or the return/rebirth of the sun.
Candlemas: February 2nd. A fire festival during which most initiation rites take place.
The Spring Rite: March 21, the spring equinox. A celebration of fertility in man, crops, and animals.
Beltane: June 21st the midsummer festival, or summer solstice, usually a time where covens mix and...

Beltane: June 21st the midsummer festival, or summer solstice, usually a time where covens mix and mingle, learning from each other.
Autumn Equinox Rite: September 21st, a clebration of thanks for the blessings of the year. Basically it's thanksgiving.
Hallowmas: October 31st, is a clebration for the reunion of souls of the family members who have left the physical plane. We ask them to return bringing with them messages of wisdom, in exchange for offerings.

There are other's but those are the major 'holidays' that I celebrate... and I've never been married, I do NOT live in a rural area, I'm not a mid-wife, I'm not a Dungeons and Dragons player either... By the way, might I point out that you just described everyone who works for the Kansas City Rennissance Festival. Is that where you got your 'information' from, cause might I point out that most of them are athiests with nothing better to do than to make fun of everyone else who DOES have a belief system?

It never ceases to amaze me the ignorance of Fox News. Most Pagans/Wiccans have nothing against major religions. And most major religions don't give a flying fig about Pagans/Wiccans. Cause guess what? They're decent human beings. No one ever goes up to each other and goes:

"Hi, I'm so and so and I'm some sort of major religion."
"Oh, well, that's nice. I'm so and so and I'm a Pagan/Wiccan."
"Oh, well now I hate you."
"Oh, I suppose for no reason, I'll hate you too."

It just doesn't...

"Oh, I suppose for no reason, I'll hate you too."

It just doesn't happen. What this is is plain out stupidity. Do some research before you make a news story about it. Most theologists agree that if a religion does not have a singular entity as a God, it's more or less under the 'pagan' list. Why? Not because pagans are witches and wizards, like you morons believe. Paganism is a blanket term typically used to refer to religious traditions which are polytheistic or indigenous. Such religions are Hinduism, Shintoism, and so on and so forth. Are you calling their holidays ridiculous? For goodness sake, Fox News, this stuff is on Wikipedia. You didn't even have to try hard to figure that out!

I know very little about Wiccans so I can't defend them properly (sorry, I do respect you, I just don't know much) but I'm sure other people do and they can school you on how stupid you're being.

To all mainstream, monotheistic religions, this is not an attack on you. I know lots of decent Christians, Muslims, Jewish, etc. who don't pull off this stupid stunts. This is an attack on the morons of Fox News who can't even be bothered to pick up a dictionary, let alone a theology book, and decided to poke fun at THOUSANDS of respectable religions and practices.

By the way, Fox News, I'm 21, single female, Buddhist, I don't play Dungeons and Dragons, I ride horses and raise dogs and work like any average American, and I respect all religions, even if I'm not fully educated on them, and treat other people respectfully who treat me with respect. Come. At. Me.

According to about 5 min of my own research: there are (www. religioustolerance. org) 134,000 Wiccans and 140,000 other Pagans in the U.S.. According to a 2006 article in the NY Times there are "About 11,000 Zoroastrians live in the United States". I guess a 5 min internet search is beyond the capacity of fox news. What a bunch of Bigots!

You three should be ashamed!! Do your homework before you go hate bashing someone's religion!! Yes you ARE bigots!! I was completely shocked when I saw the clip of you three talking about the Pagan/Wiccan faith!!!! So disrespectful and filled with hate your words!!! Samhain "Halloween" is a day to honor the dead!! To show respect to the loved ones that have passed!! Not about Satan, candy and what a lot of other Christians think!! You all obviously have NO respect!! Research facts before you...

Taking the link down, too late!! It's been seen and will not be forgotten!! I quote -"The bad side of being Wiccan is because its full of witchcraft.......any religion whose most sacred holiday is Halloween I just can't take seriously..........every Wiccan I have ever met has either been a compulsive dungeons and dragons player, or is a middle aged twice divorced, older woman living in a rural area who works as a midwife." ...........WOW. Get a clue! Witchcraft for one thing has been victimized by people like you! We don't believe in the Devil or Hell!! We don't curse people!! We believe that you get back what you give out! Samhain (Halloween) a day to honor our ancestors and loved ones past...you can't take that seriously?!?!?! I have YET to meet a fellow pagan who is obsessed with dungeons and dragons!! And really....a middle aged twice divorced midwife?!?!? What?? How many middle aged twice divorced Christians are out there??? You think none??? And what is wrong with being a midwife????? Learn some respect and get your facts right!
