I am young. I am a teenager and I am Wiccan and I grew up this way. Open minded people are really hard to come by and people like this and comments like this that make it even harder. I wished I could have made a video for good old Fox News! Maybe I will but this has to end because I have had to live my life in the shadows while everyone else was open about their religion. Not anymore! We are protected under the first amendment and its about time people finally saw that!

I totally agree with you but unfortunately we are weirdos and freaks in the eyes of the world. Are we weirdos or freaks absolutely not we are good, honest caring people that care about the real core of life.

Fox and friends, the report you made about Wiccans & Pagans is disgusting! You are discriminating against a Legitimate, Federally Recognized Religion, get your facts straight! I am Wiccan and I am NOT a DnD playing (I actually watched a friend play and I didn’t like it, it was boring and stupid in my opinion), Middle Aged Housewife with nothing better to do. I am 23 years old, and I was born with Psychic abilities and a natural gift for Witchcraft ever since I can remember.

Fox and friends, the report you made about Wiccans & Pagans is disgusting! You are discriminating against a Legitimate, Federally Recognized Religion, get your facts straight! I am Wiccan and I am NOT a DnD playing (I actually watched a friend play and I didn’t like it, it was boring and stupid in my opinion), Middle Aged Housewife with nothing better to do. I am 23 years old, and I was born with Psychic abilities and a natural gift for Witchcraft ever since I can remember.

I am also NOT a Midwife who delivers babies.I am a licensed Hairdresser, I make my own All Natural Beauty Products, and I freelance in Website Styling and Graphic Design. I also rescue stray cats, get them well fed and hydrated again, and then find them good homes for FREE out of my own Pocket. I am studying to become a Wiccan Priestess so that I can become a Mentor and Teacher and Spiritual Adviser, and taking Psychology and Sociology classes to become an even better Spiritual Adviser and maybe even a Psychologist/Counselor, and using my natural psychic gifts as a way to help people.

First of all there is nothing bad or “unfortunate” about Witchcraft, it is a way of manipulating energy to create change in the universe, it is known to many non-Pagans as “The Law of Attraction” like from the Secret and is very similar to praying. Many Christian/Catholic Churches and Ministers/Priests light candles and incense and use anointing oils during their preaching, so do we, we just recognize a different God and the addition of a Goddess sometimes in the form of Mother Earth.

2nd of all we have 8 Holidays, not 20, and it is well known if you actually read Religious History that Christians stole the Wiccan and Pagan Holidays and altered them and called them Christians hoping that having similar holidays will promote Conversion by saying “hey you can keep your holidays but celebrate them our way instead.” And for so many years it’s not OUR holidays that we get off from work and school, it’s your Christian Holidays that are recognized as days off. We Pagans work hard and accept that we may have to work on one of our Holidays, but obviously Christians can’t bother to work on their holidays. As soon as we want our Holidays recognized it’s a big deal, but it’s perfectly okay for Christians to have every holiday off from work, but we can’t?

And your ignorant and disrespectful comment about “I can’t take any religion serious who’s most sacred day is Halloween.” You obviously have NO idea what Halloween is really about, it has nothing to do with trick or treating and getting candy, the modern Halloween was a Christian invention. The true Halloween is known as the Sacred Day of the Dead where we Honor the Spirits of our Ancestors and Loved Ones who have passed over, we visit their grave sites and bring candles, incense, read poems and just talk to them, we set a place at the table for them on this day to let them know that although they are not longer here, they are not forgotten. You obviously have NO Respect for dead loved ones, I bet you don’t even visit the grave of a loved one who died or do anything in remembrance of them.

From your report you seem like a heartless and judgmental jerk with nothing better to do than judge other people for things you can’t be bothered to even research and understand better. And for the record not all Wiccans and Pagans become Midwives. They become Doctors and Nurses, Psychologists, Firemen and women, EMTs, Environmentalists to help the environment, Veterinarians, and go into various other industries of helping the community, helping people, helping animals. One day you may find yourself in need of a Doctor and they may be Wiccan or Pagan, or maybe you find yourself in an accident, a medical responder may be Wiccan and Pagan and be trying to help you, because that’s the kind of people we are. We are compassionate towards other people and animals and all of nature, and many times we help people and animals more than Christians do, who keep preaching the same thing.
Before you Judge, get your facts straight Jerk! Everything you know about Christianity and Human Morals CAME FROM PAGANISM!

Well said, I just hope no one comes along and tries to argue with you. I have known several 'trolls' who love to argue that your beliefs are wrong and theirs are right.

If someone wants to be that ignorant that they want to argue that they're right and I'm wrong, then I take comfort in the fact that Karma is going to bite them in the ass so hard they won't know what to believe when Karma is done with them.

I have been bullied all my life and I HAVE HAD ENOUGH. I am a 57 year old grandmother and have been Pagan/Wiccan since my early youth. My daughter follows our faith, as do my grandsons.

I have a voice. I will speak up, and I will NEVER give up. Please stand with me and my family, and watch this space for a blog entry, once it has been composed, after I have calmed down...

Namaste.

One of the prime points of the foundation of the United States of America is freedom of religion! Even if you are not Pagan, once someone died to support Your freedom to have or not have a religion. I take that sacrifice Very seriously, and so should the people who claim to bring you the news of the day. None of us want to hurt you, get over yourselves. We have lives and we live them. We eat, pay taxes, love our kids and pets and fight for our country in and out of uniform. Who the hell do...

Who the hell do these smiling fear mongers think they are to crap on any peoples in the name of sarcastic fear based shock shlock. Shame on you all for co operating with Anything that undermines the basic freedoms of any nation and any people! There are more of us than you can imagine here and abroad. We will spread the word and we will concentrate strong on being just as free as anyone would wish to be. smib BB.

I am neither Wiccan nor Pagan, but a Christian, and yet I do not condone the actions of stereo-typing I found in this news clip, along with various forms of laughing down which denoted thoughts of inequality due to a person's choice of faith. For your information, Fox News, various Christian holidays were, in the past, changed to accommodate the conversation from paganism into Christianity. That includes added practices that did not exist before the conversions. Anyone could research that...

The point is not about how many holidays you get out of a year, but what you get from your individual, yes individual, religious experience. Any guidelines should supply accommodation for ALL divisions of faith because faith is an INDIVIDUAL accountability.

Watch it again, listen to the things they say. Joking around about what someone believes is offensive. Saying things that are ignerant is offensive. Saying Pagans/Wiccans don't matter is offensive. Saying we don't make up much of society is offensive. Making jokes about Halloween being our "Main holiday" is OFFENSIVE! and calling us "Middle-Aged, twice Divorced" is OFFENSIVE
