They complain about 20 holidays (incorrect number, btw); when ONE Christian holiday closes school for over a week, Really? Better yet. no school should recognize ANY holiday. If it's your holiday you're going to take off from school anyway; so why should it be the schools responsibility to schedule itself around you? Regardless of religion; they have it backwards. The school's job is to educate. Period.

This sort of hatred is what satan looks like! for all of you against Pagans..ask youselves this, who are you to speak against the first recognized religion and or belief system! If God would not love us as he does everyone else, he would not have created us? As journalists these people are uneducated Baboons! These are not Humanitarians nor believers of God, because to understand God you must have absolute love! In God's eyes Love Is The Law! Now walk your talk!

Americans love crap, look at their speech and now Obama has his Nazi FEMA thugs ready to round you up. making fun of Christians. Bobbie Jo Justice Bobbie Jo Justice, she is the reason that I am hear to look at what you potty mouths are going on about. 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...

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...

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...

To whom it may concern,

After viewing the video on "Wiccans, Pagans, and people who support Freedom of Religion along with Equality", I have come to the conclusion that your news people have NO idea what they're talking about! You are sooooo misinformed! For one, Wiccans do not celebrate 20 holidays, and if you had any sense what-so-ever you would have known that. Our holidays have been stole by the Christians, do your research if you're so up date! (which you're not) Who ever wrote this...

(which you're not) Who ever wrote this article on "To: Wiccans, Pagans, and People who support Freedom of Religion, along with Equality."was a total idiot. And "I" for one who AM Wiccan can name all my holidays... I am not a midwife, I have not been divorced three times, and I don't burn incense all the time. Why don't you come to one of our Sabbats and get an idea of what Wicca truly is about instead of drumming up ignorant ideas and spreading your lies to the population. It is astounding to me that somebody with such an education, and to have a position in the public eye can be so ignorant to what is truth. The sad part is that lack of knowledge creates ignorance, and ignorance creates hatred, because that which you don't know you speak wrongly about, therefore leaving truth in the dark and then ignorance abounds.

Which leaves me to say, you owe the Wiccan/Pagan community a MUCH needed apology.

Sincerely, Kimberly A. G. Braddy 1st Degree Wiccan Priestess.

I am just astounded at the absolute prejudice and the laughing from these "people"! I am also not twice divorced and living in a rural area! I live in the city of Melbourne Australia. A Wiccan is not hand in hand with a Pagan, it falls under the Pagan umbrella. Wiccans do not all practice witchcraft. Wicca is a religion and witchcraft is a practice of healing and helping others as well as ourselves in a way that "Harms NONE" Education is what they need and I had my mouth open this...

Why are your feathers so ruffled up over this silly news cast? Christians and Jews are a constant target from the media and you don't see us crying over it. Grow some thick skin and get over it. Everyone has their right to freedom of speech. That doesn't mean we have to listen!

Christians make up the largest group of any single religious faith. Just sayin'.
