Easter its self is named after a pagan deity.
Christmas has wayyyy more than yule related to paganism like the worship of a tree and putting offerings under it... the date it falls on is the birthdate of tamuz.

I live in the Bible Belt, so hateful an ignorant comments are common around here. I had no idea a news channel would go that low, though. :(
I've even been threatened to have my kids taken away. :(

I'm a Norse Paganist. Fox News is about as informative and understanding as the News channels in China. All I can say is that I can't wait to see what Jon Stewart says about this.

Imo...if your holiday includes you doing pagan things...it a pagan holiday... fyi "jesus christ" wasn't even born in december.... nor was the letter "j" possible to have been used to name him... due to the fact their was no letter j. :\

I have been a Pagan and Wiccan for 18 years, and to me, water off a ducks back.
Misconceptions about any religion are always going to be around.

Yeah but you would think that a news program would at least try to have the facts straight and attempt to be professional.

They seem very uneducated on the topic that they are reporting on.
