I am almost a middle-aged woman, but I've been Pagan since I was 20. I think it's disgusting that any "reputable" news source would belittle a federally recognized religion. If I went on TV and made sweeping inaccuracies about Christianity, you can bet your ass they would come out of the woodwork like cockroaches, with torches and rope, ready to lynch me!
I think before they do a show or talk about wiccan or pagan, they should really learn what it is all about. Ignorance is showing here.
I think the point may be that they want a public acknowlegement that they were in the wrong. They said things that are steriotypical. They put themselves in a possition of making people feel that you "Choose a religion" based on holidays, not by your beliefs. If he said something like that about Christians they'd be flocking too. The point here is that the guy was wrong to say "all pagans and wiccans are middle aged, twice divorced, and play dungeons and dragons."
How would you feel if he...
How would you feel if he were to say "All Christains spend all their time going to church and pushing Christ on evveryone around them" (he didn't but what if).
Point here is, he was being HATEFUL and mean! (Just note, when was the last time a pagan/wiccan went door to door to tell you about how much you should worship the earth?)
I am neither Pagan nor Wiccan but know that what was said on this program is WRONG. The man on the left said "call me a bigot", well...what they said was ignorant, rude and close to racist towards Pagans and Wiccans and they SHOULD appologize to the viewers, the station and the general public. Journalism is considered freedom of the press but their personal opinions should be kept personal.
Can we say so narrow minded they can't see anything?
Yes, they should apologize, to say such closed minded statements and stereo type all "pagans and wiccans" is just plain rude, to me personally this is almost verbal bullying just gotta remember its Fox news, what's to be expected = / I'm sure they wouldn't say the same things about muslims for fear that theyd be targets by radical extremeist if they bullied that religion.Im sure karma will catch up with this closed minded group of individuals......
Did they forget where Christians got their holidays from...oh yeah..they stole them from Pagans...do some research...to make fun of something you know nothing about, you can even see on the woman's face that she knows they shouldn't be saying the stuff they are saying. Total BS...I am not middle aged, been Pagan most my life and not even 40 either, never played Dungeons and Dragons, and don't know anyone that does, Wiccan/Pagan or not. We are all human, did we forget that...Christians get...

We are all human, did we forget that...Christians get their holidays, Jewish get their Holidays, Africans can have theirs, hell even Martin Luther King has a holiday, but Pagans and Wiccans (We were here long before the Christians stole everything from us) we can't have holidays...that is just predjudice and last I heard, that was not tolerated...
How dare they make fun of any religion on live TV? That is just disgusting. The man on the left needs to be slapped up-side his head...journalist? Report the facts buddy, no one wants to hear your opinions.
posted on my store page and my page and I got the ball rolling :P Blessed Be Everyone.
Best part of my day? Watching the 1, 5 and 7 thousand signatures come and go! Yay! :D
