Fox News and their bad Wiccan Humor

I normally don't get super riled up about things, because you can't really fix stupid, but when ignorance and intolerance are broadcasted on a national news station, something needs to be said. Now I realize that a lot is being said already, but the more voices saying the same thing the quicker we will get heard.

One thing I have to stress is, don't respond with hate. I joined this religion because of the open mind mentality and because it was the best for my beliefs. I have seen so much hate from such a peace loving community about this issue, it's actually makes me sad. Stand up for what you believe in, but don't take it to a place of darkness. Remember negativity breeds negativity.

When I first watched this broadcast hours later on the internet thanks to The Domestic Witch, I was outraged, then angry, then sad. Outraged because I couldn't possibly believe they said those things, angry because they couldn't take the time to do their research before they started spewing their ignorance, then sad because they didn't know any better and were probably taught from a young age that anything but what they believe in is silly and frivolous. I agree we should demand an apology, and it upsets me when I see so many people saying "It's Fox News. They will never say sorry." That is just an excuse to keep you from doing something about it, and you give up before you even tried. Would you rather say you tried to do something about it or say that you didn't have the courage to say anything?

So go to Twitter, Facebook, and even Fox News itself and demand to be heard. Demand an apology for what they have said. They need to be held accountable for what they said, and learn that it's not okay to say that kind of stuff on national television without consequence. They should know better, and they should know they are not immune. So go out and peacefully tell them how wrong they are, and if you are angry, take a moment to calm down before answering and come from a place of good.
