Demand Fox news Apologize to Pagans and Wiccans


To: Wiccans, Pagans, and People who support Freedom of Religion, along with Equality.

Fox and Friends on February 17, 2013 decided to belittle women, make fun of a Federally recognized religion, present inaccurate information as "facts" concerning the religion of Wicca, and decide that religious freedom and respect is ONLY for the mainstream or "traditional" religions rather than for EVERY American Citizen regardless of their spirituality. Obviously they need to re-read our Constitution. They also need to reflect on the fact that this is -not- a "majority rules" based Country, a commonly held misunderstanding. If it were, we would not have an electoral college but would operate strictly on a one-person-one-vote system (which we do not). So while the majority of citizens may follow a more traditionally recognized religion in this Country, that in no way invalidates the rights of citizens of other "minority" religions to have the exact same rights and respect given to those of a traditional religion or a majority group. 

They are also doing a lot of damage control by removing this video from the public record due to the backlash it is receiving but I, and many others in the Pagan community will not allow them to hide their bigotry and pretend it didn't happen.

By signing this, you agree that Fox News was being hateful and Discriminatory against Pagans and Wiccans and they should apologize for their exaggerations, and should correct their mistakes by doing proper research before interviewing.
Like above, they are doing a bunch of damage control, getting rid of this on the internet, but I am not going to let this slide. THEY NEED to do a recap and provide the public with CORRECT and ACCURATE informatiion. We deserve equality just as much as Christians.
