Actually, they do. And they don't care. The Todd Starnes blog is a hotbed of people decrying how Pagans are trying to "steal Christmas" every year. It's like a mugger whining that his victim wants his wallet back!

this video clip is, from beginning to end, full of hypocrisy. but, really, i expect nothing less from these people. they would die if someone "stole" their beloved christmas trees, wouldn't they? these people are mocking wicca and paganism throughout this discussion, and then whine about not being able to say "merry christmas" without offending someone. to me, and i am not religious at all, it is offensive that a major news organization is this blatantly unprofessional. this clip is so entirely demeaning.

It pains me to continue reading and hearing these misinformed "journalists" who obviously don't take a moment to research. Had this been Christian or Jewish religion that had been attacked the hammer would have fallen hard on this crew. As it stands, the network will probably apologize for the remarks but the individuals will face no consequences. I wonder, if they are aware or care how much damage this type of ignorance causes? I wonder if they are aware of how long and bitter the struggle...

I wonder if they are aware of how long and bitter the struggle was to have symbols of OUR faith to be allowed in military cemeteries. A struggle that should not have taken place and would not have taken place had it not been for ignorance about our faith.
But just so they know the type of people they are discriminating against, they should understand that other religions would most likely be calling for their removal from the network. That would be something we will most likely shy away from. They would know why if they bothered to look into our faith rather than tear at it.
I hope we all remain horrified that this still happens in 2013 yet all remain calm. Return the insult with thoughtful and informed answers. As I said, the station will probably apologize but it would be nice if the "journalists" would be made to research what Wicca and the Pagan community is before they attack it.

Do not be surprised. After all Christianity thinks it rules the world. After all they get their own city state in Rome. The fact that people always seem to overlook is Christianity treats all other religions like 2nd class citizens. The more moderate groups of the Christian religion are civil and open minded, but the hard core ones treat any people who do not worship them as though they should be hung and burned. It is truely sad that such a great religion acts so corrupt and against...

Yet even now they insist on pulling this. A sad day ineed.

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.

Jeez, is Fox trying to start a religious war? Pegans and Wiccans have been around since long before Christianity was around. It was in Europe and Christianity forced its way into the British Isles with the Anglo-Saxon Invasion. Prior to that the many tribes of Celts wandered the Isles as nomads. The Romans tried almost 100 years prior and failed. So you have to wonder, is this fox video a slander against Wiccans? Christianity forcing itself once again to oppress religions that are not...

Christianity forcing itself once again to oppress religions that are not their own? Personally I think its just fox making a fool out of themselves. Let it be known that Fox news must be made to apologize for such slander and libel. If this is them delivering news, then they should be forced to report the facts, not belittle a culture around for centuries. Let us stand united against this and see this petition through for every Wiccan and Pegan out there. I don't speak for them but this Shintoist shall stand beside you for equal religious rights. May the Kamis be with you.

How very sad that these "so called" journalists did so little investigative journalism on what the Wicca and Pagan spiritualism is. They also might want to consider what a Midwife is and does since there seemed to be a jab in there referencing midwives in a negative way. Midwives are trained professionals who save the lives of women and infants all over the world everyday. They come in all shapes, sizes, races, and religions. For heavens sakes educate yourself before you spew your 'fair and balanced' BS.

And midwives...how uninformed, ignorant. So sad that many people rely on this misinformation as their source for news. I guess if it were up to these guys we would still be burning midwives alive for being witches. Surprising that these pro lifers seem to have no clue that midwives are all over the world saving women and infants lives in very dire conditions and places daily...some places where the women can't even afford to burn incense!!! Good grief, read a book or do some research or something :/

I am shocked and apalled that people who call themselves journalists could be so insensitive and irresponsible. pagans are a part of this country and we deserve the same respect as any other minority population I am a veteran a husband of 27 years a father to 2 fine young men and grand father to two precious little children you should know what and whom you are speaking about before you open your mouth. And I have a news flash for you you cannot stop being a biggott by saying you are not....

This is the reason we dont watch Fox in our house. I am glad people are signing the petition but at the same time people are advertising for them. These are people who are real news caster failures so they go to Fox for a job. Lack of intelligence and common sense. One thing I will say that I found funny was the dumb blonde "i dont know any wiccans" she probably doesn't know her name either if it wasnt for her ID....

Ragnbjorg Frida Donarsdottir

typical narrow minded conservative intolerant jackasses! I am an Asatru believer and I found it offensive just to hear it. They have no idea of what Wicca or what the other pagan religions are all about...they should ask a wiccan or pagan what they believe in before they talk shit and bash people who are wiccans or pagans. FREEDOM OF RELIGION APPLIES TO ALLLLLLL RELGIONS not the popular or majority religion only.
