Dear Fox and Friends
Even though my religious beliefs may be different, I have many friends in Wiccan/ Pagan Community, whom I Love and Respect and what you did on your broadcast was very discriminatory and disrespectful to their faith.
Instead of taking an opportunity to educate your listeners, you used your platform to offend and insult them.
I would like for you to do a recap and apologize to their community, as well as provide the public with correct information.

Thank you for being cooperative,

This one is for Members of The Pagan/Wiccan Faith and was edited from Felix's original:

Excellant wording....I will sign it once it's up and running, have sent this petition to many friends on FB as well and will be contacting this channel today via em. Hope this gets international attention. Have been a practicing pagan for years and assumed this much ignorance had diminished..Can see it has not. Blessings, Michele

Are we subhumans that the declaration excluded from freedom of religion? Fox news needs to be educated on inaliable rights, and our freedoms under the law and the fact that they have no right to judge us or anyone else! Are they going to be making fun of Christians, Jews, Catholics, Muslims, or athiests next? We just want everyone to coexist! As pagans and Wiccans we have friends from all walks of life and we respect them, and accept them for who they are... 1.Human Beings 2.Sisters and...

As pagans and Wiccans we have friends from all walks of life and we respect them, and accept them for who they are... 1.Human Beings 2.Sisters and Brothers 3.Friends and Loved Ones. We care about each one, pray for them, and feel their pain when they are hurt. Their religion is irrelevent!!! Fox has no right to judge ANY religion, much less ours.

Maybe we are Pagans yet were still a Religion and deserve the same respect as a Catholic or a Christian.

As a profesional person, you should realize that people are of different backgrounds and education, no matter what their religion. How can you be sooo biased? I too, am a Pagan and Wiccan Priestess. I also am a RN and have been for many years. Please rethink your reality. If you are a Christian-----Jesus would frown upon you and your judgements.

This is what I sent :
To Fox News Directors and Produces and everyone concerned,
I am writing you to express my thoughts and concerns about your segment on February 17th regarding Wicca Holidays at the University of Missouri. I am just shaking my head at the idea that your host was so unprepared and basically making up stuff about a Religion they obviously know nothing about. I have watched Fox and Friends on my days off, and found the light heartedness fun, but this time they were so off...

I am just shaking my head at the idea that your host was so unprepared and basically making up stuff about a Religion they obviously know nothing about. I have watched Fox and Friends on my days off, and found the light heartedness fun, but this time they were so off the mark, I feel this needs to be corrected. News is not some idea that you heard on the street or read off a cracker box top, Wiccan's are people, they were talking about them as if they were some crazies, and it was disgraceful. (The Host on the left) actually said Halloween is the most sacred day for Wiccan's. What? Really? Then (the host on the left) goes on to say most Wiccans are middle ages twice divorced older women living in a rural area , and work as a midwife. W.T. H is that suppose to mean? When (the host on the left) said that you could see the look on (the host in the middle) face, she was quite embarrassed. (And frankly so was I).
It would be nice to for your journalist to do some research and have a segment on correcting there misguided facts.Thank you for your time,
Judy A Styres.

As a journalist and proud Wiccan I find it very degrading that these idiots who call themselves journalist would put down a religion they obviously know nohting about. Try doing some research next time, but unless you have walked the walk you can't talk the talk. Pagan and Wiccan is as old as time and I do not profess to know all there is to know. I love mother earth and she has been kind to humanity, she has fed , clothed and sheltered us since the beginning of time.To say they interviewed...

I love mother earth and she has been kind to humanity, she has fed , clothed and sheltered us since the beginning of time.To say they interviewed some Wiccan's makes them an expert lol, or to comment that it only seems to be divorced women in rural areas buring candles, what a joke. I have been Wiccan my whole life it is a part of who I am , do I do spells not as much any more, but I still follow the regilion, which to me isn't really a religion for me it is just a way of life. You disgust me with your igornance Fox News needs some new journalist, if your going to talk about a subject do your researc. Blessings and love to all my fellow Wiccans and Pagans, don't let igornance make you angry just smile because we know they have no clue.

Please correct the spelling!

"I am apart of the Wiccan/ Pagan Community..." is wrong. It needs to be "I am a part of the Wiccan/ Pagan Community...." The word "apart" means to be separated from!
