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...

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.

Greetings from Ireland so sad to hear that as a community we have to still deal with been ridiculed for our beliefs, beliefs that are thousands of years old and that speak ofacceptance and respect for all. Keep up the cause.I must say after spending time in the USA I cant believe that there is such a channel as Fox news but hey you cant count for good taste! Much love to all involved with petition.

Bright Blessings to all my Pagan and Wiccan family out there. I watched the broadcast and seriously wanted to slap those two boys for their sheer ignorance. I have shared this petition.

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!

Allow me to offer a thought here. Christmas is and was originally the Winter Solstice, Easter was originally the Spring equinox Beltane where tribute to the goddess Ishtar goddess of fertility was paid tribute to. Samhain was the festival of the thinning of the veil became Halloween later. the Cross of Christ was originally a 'T' which was modeled after Thor's hammer, because Jesus was actually a political prisoner of the Jewish and Roman Empire, because of his religious/political...

Allow me to offer a thought here. Christmas is and was originally the Winter Solstice, Easter was originally the Spring equinox Beltane where tribute to the goddess Ishtar goddess of fertility was paid tribute to. Samhain was the festival of the thinning of the veil became Halloween later. the Cross of Christ was originally a 'T' which was modeled after Thor's hammer, because Jesus was actually a political prisoner of the Jewish and Roman Empire, because of his religious/political attitudes. There are religions that long predate Christianity that share the same religious Icon, the Virgin birth, the son being crucified to a tree, and being reborn again.

Our Fore fathers were a collection of various belief systems, atheist, agnosticism, christian, deist and Ben Franklin was a Horus worshiper and belonged the "Hell Fires Club.' Point being this country was found of Deist principles and the freedom of religion and to follow that faith which ever one desires... for no one faith or religion to dictate to another and yet Christianity has prevalently dominated the political arena and stated how it is being oppressed.
I once was a Christian, but now I am a spiritualist. Simply put the belief that "God simply is' whatever form or shape that takes in one's own understanding. I believe in enlightened souls or spirits who come here and guide us in good conscience.
What Fox did was uncalled for and as usual bias, fear-mongering reporting with little or no fact and opinion based reporting to create hate, fear and an one sided commentary that has no place in the major media.

Let one say that about Christian or Muslim, or even the Jewish faith. Heads would be rolling. I think they owe an apology, and these reporters... if one would dare put such a title on them. I think sensationalist and bigoted reporting would be more appropriate.

P.S. My wife is a pagan and she is not a practicing mid wife in the middle of no where. She is a citizen of the United States and deserves the same respect and rights as every other citizen in the U.S. And Fox's little head patting comments demean and insult her and belittle and make trifle of what of Forefather's and their good intentions stood for. They were human so to error is to be human and judgment and good intentions always do not lead to the best results and it can be twisted to what was not intended to be.

And Pagan is not necessary a practitioner of witchcraft... it is one who follows many or a different path that the Christian community has taken the liberty, and not in the loving spirit of Jesus, I think to mark any one who is not of their particular faith. Call me silly, but I think that is a little bit arrogant and predisposed to be just a bit judgmental on their part. I believe Christ talked about removing the splinter from your own eye before judging your fellow brother and sister and to love your neighbor and enemy as do you do your own self
