So let me get this straight... In my religion, a priest can molest a child and get away with it. Doesn't make the news and he doesn't get any punishment other then sending him to isreal until we forget it? That's cute. But someone with other religious beliefs is a joke? I think these guys need to do more research on who's religion is really the joke. And that's coming from a Catholic. Sad how petty this world has become.
yep so true this whole thing is joke as pagan my self i not upset over this I find this funny cause so many people want be so P.C lol so what what one may think about something they have ever right to believe what they want say what they want as everyone has the right to comment back their feeling too but in the long run it just endless joke with no punch line lol
Suck it up and quit your bitchin'. Christians have been doing it for over 2000 years.
and there no sign of stopping lol :P
I originally read the recap, and there were only two paragraphs at the end that were the least bit derogatory. Most of it seemed focused on the Jews, Buddhists and Hindus, with honorable mention to the Muslims and Taoists, and I don't think the Jews and Muslims are what anyone would consider "Pagan." Then I really don't consider Heathens to be all that nihilistic.
I just got to watch the video of the news spot, and I am not the least bit angry. I am disappointed. Your under-educated,...
I just got to watch the video of the news spot, and I am not the least bit angry. I am disappointed. Your under-educated, unprepared hosts were pandering to the far right Christian religious conservatives that are only a part of your viewership. I am a rather devoted viewer, and I haven’t played D&D since I was in college in the early ‘80s. I am not a middle-aged, cat owning, twice divorced woman. I would love to live in the country, but my life has been tied to our nation’s major urban centers. I am a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, a career law enforcement officer, a career reservist, and a community volunteer. I hold a BSCJ in Law Enforcement and Public Safety, an Undergraduate Certificate in Homeland Security, and I am a Master’s Candidate for a dual major in Homeland Security and Justice Management. I am a veteran of four wars and three overseas deployments. I have spent my entire adult life serving my community, state and nation, and I am a moderately conservative, Libertarian Pagan.
Fox News, you might be surprised at the number of non fuzzy bunny pagans who are extremely conservative, especially in the Heathen Kinfolk. I am a Heathen, not a Wiccan. I am rather conservative. I am part of that population of most of the electorate, just right of center middle class American. Though, I am likely a little more right than some. I believe in our Constitution, and understand how the Second Amendment is the protection of the First and all the other Amendments. I am disappointed at the tenor of the hosts of this news spot. I am disappointed at production and management staff that would allow this type of imbalanced presentation. I truly expect more from the Anti-CNN channel. I am the target market and voter you should be trying to include and court for your candidates, not the one you should be excluding and trying to marginalize. I deserve better for my life long service and sacrifice protecting your rights as the Fourth Estate. I deserve your equal protection for exercising my First Amendment Rights.
The article was considerably better.
My oldest daughter is a Christian, single mother of two, and just happens to be a nursing student who is intending to become a midwife. There are fantastic professionals in that community of RNs who chose to deliver our children, help us with our prenatal and immediate post natal care, and I hope to salute my Registered Nurse Midwife daughter as an Army Officer some day soon too.
My mother before me was of pagan religion and I follow in her foot steps. Im not a middle aged woman, I am sixteen. My mother trully believes in the pagan way of life and she is my teacher. This religion is not something to be made a moclery of on national television. Paganism has many followers and true believers and it is a disgrace to make fun of someones religion like fox news did. Most of their information was inaccurate anyway.
I'm not Pagan/Wiccan.....I'm a Witch!
Here's a Link to Story:
The bad thing is that we Watch Fox News sometimes......These People need to be Educated on things more.
When you go to the Link now you get: 404 Not Found.....Wonder why?
I'd already posted the Article on my Witchy Wisdom Network but couldn't get the Video Link to work.
Maybe the site crashed due to so many pagan supporters hitting the site....that, or it's been taken off.....those are my guesses......Blessings:)
No, you get "404 Not Found" but the Video is on You Tube now.
I heard NOTHING negative about Wiccans or pagan's that Fox news said. But, I will tell you this, God said we are NOT to practice any type of paganism...any type. This can be dangerous in more ways than one. Believe me when I say, God has a very good reason for people to stay away from such things.
So by all means, continue to partake in the blood sacrifice demanded by your god at the altar....what's that? You don't have a blood sacrifice? Oh, that's right...you call it communion so as not to scare the sheeple. (look up transubstantiation if you need to)
Oh do behave, you Christians have adopted most of our Pagan holidays anyway, as paganism was a recognised religion a very long time before Christianity was even thought of.
Sarah, you are right about that. Holloween, easter, christmas are all pagan and God said not to practice them. We as a nation have gotten away from Gods true holy days [ they are in Lev ]. I for one have been doing his holy days now for 45 years and counting. I don't do the pagan days. My mom was a witch and practiced it for many years and she wanted to get me into it, but I had a gut feeling it was wrong and down through the years I found out why. All of this can be most dangerous. I truly know it can be and I know why.
It is only dangerous if you decide to make it so, if you have experienced danger through other pagans then they were obviously following a different path than most other pagans i know. And i fully believe that your Christian beliefs are archaic and do as i say or you will be punished nonsense. I was raised Christian by Catholic and Church of England beliefs so i know what I AM talking about. All this hate that is associated with the Christian faith is why i turned my back on it and chose to...

Sarah, by what your saying, I see you have been listening to others and not learning things for yourself. You have to study Gods word and find the answers, not just listen to what others have to say,and if you do, you need to study to see if what they have to say is true or not...even God tells us to do that. And ALL paginism is connected to satan...All paganism. There is a lot more here I have not said about such practices and my own experiences because it would more than likely scare the...

There is a lot more here I have not said about such practices and my own experiences because it would more than likely scare the H... out of you. I will tell you this though and there is a way for you to find out if I'm right or wrong...most all of those that practice this stuff, satan already has his hand on them. Now, if you don't believe me, try giving up, either your thoughts that its okay or if you are practicing any of this, trying giving it up and begin just reading your bible and see what happens...and it will either happen right away or later, but you'll see what I mean.
You know what's really sad? I'm a Christian who doesn't follow the beliefs and ideals of Pagans or Wiccans, but I know that what was said was wrong. Somehow, its a break of tradition for other religions to have their holidays be recognized? I thought we lived in America, where free religion was encouraged. Making fun of Wiccans and saying durogatory things about their lifestyle and holidays is pathetic. No matter what anyone's religion, this should not be tolerated.
Thank you Kylie. My husband and I both thank you. The world needs more accepting people like you.
there needs to be more "Christians" like you Kylie! I don't profress to be a Christian because of the stigmatism behind it....I do however profess my belief in Jesus being my Lord and Savior.....it is a shame when anyone is judged based on what "religion" they profess...when in reality ALL religions have ALOT of simularities it just takes being open minded to see that we are not that different set here with one thing in common to choose our own path as it was originally designed....
There needs to be more people like Kylie and Debbie here. Even though I am not of a christian faith, I do still believe in Jesus. I've studied many religions and find Druidism something I fall into, it's more of communing with earth but that doesn't make us satan worshippers like I saw someone state. We need more accepting people out there.. everyone has their choice in religion and should not face this kind of treatment, specially on TV.
I would like to count you, Kylie, as one of the few "true" Christians out there who actually follow the teachings of Christ. He never would have mocked or treated a group of people in this manner.
I can't handle Fox News. I know most news stations are biased, but the fact that they let them keep babbling on with facts that obviously aren't true is appalling. I don't subscribe to really an religion, but I think everyone should be free to practice what they wish. Almost every Wiccan/Pagan I've met have been kind and really relaxed. I just can't handle intolerance due to ignorance. Educate yourself before you make an ass of yourself, Fox News "Reporters".
It's just stunning...... I kept thinking,"they are professionals, they'll stop. They'll say 'just kidding!' Or the director, or stage manager, or even a camera man... Someone will signal them to move on as quickly as possible.." But they kept digging themselves deeper and deeper. I don't care what you believe, as a broadcaster you have to know any religious subject deserves to be handled with some measure of respect. And bringing up Halloween? Holy cow! -(not a Hindu joke)-((seriously!))
I'm still wonder WTF? when I contemplate this mysterious occourence...
making fun of Christians. Bobbie Jo Justice Bobbie Jo Justice
wow...I'm...seriously..at a loss for words.
It was rude but to be honest I really don't expect anything different from Fox "News" or their dedicated followers.
I agree Fred. I expect nothing short of idiocy from FOX "NEWS". Its just still baffles me that people can be this ignorant, rude and just plain misinformed.
Hey, at least he was upfront about him being a bigot. I am neither middle aged, nor twice divorced. I know all my holidays and I have never played Dungeons & Dragons...I can't believe they would call themselves journalists, this is the stupidest piece I've heard in a while. Shameful!
oh and for the record, my main holiday is NOT Halloween...Christians are the ones who twisted Samhain, Yule and Ostara specifically to fit their tradition in order to convert the pagans. What a fucking idiot.
Lolz, those are anchors, not journalists. Talk about an idiot lolzz.
