wow , what ass holes....
I don't want them to apologize, they should just flat out be FIRED for this mess. They can take their apology and shove it. We have a right to freedom of religion just as much as they do. This was completely unnecessary and uncalled for. We tolerate Christians and other religions and even respect beliefs of others. ALL religions speak of respect, these guys showed absolutely NO respect. I say not only should the OWNER of FOX to apologize but he or she should terminate the employment of these disrespectful people.
This could be seeing ( and should be seeing as such) defamations of character.
Well 1st off they didn't do their research, of Wicca: so saying we are all twice divorce wives with teo kids, that are mid-wives that love to buren inceses.
Fox News is not news. It is reporter created drama from news stories based on pure ignorance. This is proof.
For anyone who doesn't think this is bigotry... I changed the wording in the transcript. NOW how bigoted is it? If someone did this to THEM, Fox would have a new "The War On..." logo.
CARLSON: The bad side of CHRISTIANITY is it's obviously a FALSE RELIGION. But the upside is you get a ton of holidays. Twenty percent of all school holidays, as described by the University of Missouri, are CHRISTIAN holidays. Twenty percent of all.
MORRIS: But you get 20 holidays now if you're a...
MORRIS: But you get 20 holidays now if you're a CHRISTIAN. I guess that's the one to go with, right? I mean, that's certainly the one. If you're going to pick one, go with the one with the most holidays.
CARLSON: Except any religion whose most sacred day is RESURRECTION DAY, I just can't take seriously. I mean, call me a bigot. And I'm not, you know, not offering an editorial against CHRISTIANITY.
MORRIS: Well, that would be more the CHRISTIAN side of it, right, would be RESURRECTION DAY.
CARLSON: How many CHRISTIANS can name every CHRISTIAN holiday? Or 50 percent of CHRISTIAN holidays?
KOOIMAN: I don't know, a single CHRISTIAN.
MORRIS: I will say this, because, you know, we're journalists and I have covered this. I actually went -- because there was some backlash a number of years ago against CHRISTIANS, and I remember I had to do a story and I went and interviewed a number of CHRISTIANS and they say, "Look, we are the most peaceful individuals, we don't practice crazy things, we're just WORSHIPPING OUR RISEN MESSIAH, we believe in" --
CARLSON: I think that's right. Every CHRISTIAN I've ever known is either a compulsive HAPPY CLAPPY SONG SINGER WHO THINKS IMPLEMENTS OF BARBARIC TORTURE ARE GLORIOUS AND SOMEHOW OFFER A REDEMPTIVE BLOOD SACRIFICE, IF YOU WORSHIP THE RIGHT JEW OUT OF THE THOUSANDS THAT WERE MURDERED ON THEM, or is a middle-aged, twice-divorced older woman living in a rural area who STAYS HOME WITH HER FIFTEEN KIDS AND TEACHES THEM ‘GOD HATES FAGS’.
MORRIS: And likes a lot of BREAD AND GRAPE JUICE.
CARLSON: Yeah, totally.
He says call me a biggot! I call him a BIGGOT and raise him a soothsayer. All areas in life base there misconseptions of "religions" of wide spread rumor and bad experience with the "religious" sect that is being attacked. I do not practice Wiccan, but I did sign the petition. It is not right to misrepresent in the news media. Yellow journalism is not real journalism.

Just another reason for people to wake up and not trust the main stream "news" (soothsaying) media.
I used to live in OKC....I wish I was still there to stand with yall! Good luck I will be with you in spirit!! LOVE & LIGHT )O(
This is incredibly insulting. Clearly they know zero wiccans and pagans, so if one is so very uninformed, perhaps they should refrain from stereotypes. Wonder if these tools know that many of their christian holidays are modeled after ours. Doubt it because that would take an informed mind. And btw, I knew all of my holidays from childhood.
I'm not surprised at all by the ignorance shown. They DO need to do some real research, talk to some real Pagans/Wiccans and clear up the misinformation! The actual number of "holidays" is more like 36 IF you count all the Esbats. If you count those, then you would also have to count the 52 SUN DAYS that most Christians have off! And then there's the matter of many of their holidays actually having Pagan origins..such as Christmas, Easter, and Halloween. Harvest Festivals also predate Christianity as well.
Freedom of speech is one thing, but spewing false information to thousands of people who will swallow it hook, line and sinker does not fall under that banner.
