Said anything so bigoted to judeochristian friends and family but I am sick and tired of heaeing such rudeness from the media and other idiots who font know the meaning of live and let live. And yes I wont tie up the whole message board with naming every holiday but anyone who is an educated pagan or wiccan knows the wheel of the year. By the way native americans and aisan culture use insense in their religious practices, maybe we should belittle them too. What an insult!

Sorry about the typos. My tablet sometimes acts up. But I wanted fox news to get a loud and clear message. Ive been the victim of employee discrimination back in 2009 in an ultra orthadox medical facility here in Ny of all places. I lost my job over my beliefs and no lawyer wanted to touch it. I can tell u that discrimination is like havind a knife in your gut. And this is someone who grew up a a jewish white girl. Well now I am a jewiccan and proud I made the switch.

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 you for eternity, you see, he likes wiccans and pagans. Take a good dose of soothing butt ointment with you. Cheers.

That's strange. I JUST had it up and it was working. Basically Tucker Carlson on Fox News bashed Pagans and Wiccans and really overgeneralized and stereotyped them as a culture. Saying they are all "twice divorced middle-aged women living in rural areas who like incense or Dungeons and Dragons players." And basically that their holidays should not be included in the Missouri University list of holidays AND that he can't even take the religious practice seriously because it centers around "Halloween".

This broadcast displayed a despicable lack of information regarding Pagans, Wiccans and Wytches.
All women are my sisters. The snide remarks leveled at their gender are offensive to my ears. They warrant an apology to all women, be they Pagan or not.
Twenty percent of all holidays only equals one fifth of all holidays. The point was sadly moot.

these people are seriously stupid.. christian holidays all have pagan roots.. As for some of the other holidays, such as Christmas, Christians didn't allow the pagans to keep their celebrations, but rather provided an alternative to the more popular secular festivals. During the Christmas season, for example, many Christians were uncomfortable with the worship of a pagan god, Mithra (for more on Mithra and Christianity, see Did Christianity Steal From Mithraism?). So the church decided to...

During the Christmas season, for example, many Christians were uncomfortable with the worship of a pagan god, Mithra (for more on Mithra and Christianity, see Did Christianity Steal From Mithraism?). So the church decided to counter the pagan festival with one of their own, one that celebrates the birth of the savior. Since no one knows on just which day Jesus was actually born, December 25 worked as well as any other. We see many churches do similar things today in their Harvest festivals; they choose October 31 to create an alternative celebration to Halloween.

I'm about to be 21.
i'm single
have never been married.
i like dungeons and dragons but most of the D&D players I know are not pagan.
i've been pagan since I was about 12.
and I'm willing to bet some of the more "popular" religions have more holidays than we do.

I was always okay with Fox News, until I saw the University of Missouri segment about Wiccan Pagan holidays. Never before have I personally witnessed such a horrid case of misinformation and blatant bias. It was an extreme case of prejudice and an outright public attack on the Pagan community. Their facts were non-existent.The whole segment served absolutely no value or purpose other than to mock a community that is much larger than they are aware of.

It is the type of closed-minded, biased so-called journalism they exhibited that keeps many Pagans in the shadows, due to fear of persecution.

Many people [non-Pagans included] are demanding a public apology. I feel an apology would be an insincere attempt at pleasing the masses. I personally feel that their network should do an in depth study and investigative report on what Wicca and other Pagan religions are truly about. Discover what major holidays [Sabbats] they actually celebrate and other fact based information. I believe only when they have conducted an in-depth, well researched, unbiased investigation, then report their findings publicly will an apology (if so inclined after research, which I believe they will be) hold any merit what-so-ever.

I agree that a "forced" apology simply to smoothe ruffled feathers would be insincere and no apology at all. I was also raised that you don't apologise if you plan on doing it again. You know they're going to pull this kind of thing again on many topics - it's how they generate ratings. So why bother apologising? Why are people actually demanding an apology from them, knowing it won't even be sincere? You can't -force- someone to feel actual remorse for their actions; that has to come...

Until/unless it does, it's worthless currency.
