Kathy Lee Gifford made a comment on the Today show about the “nasty, bad pagans”. You can watch it here, look at about the 4:15 minute.
If she had said the “nasty, bad Christians”, the “nasty bad Muslims”, or the “nasty bad Jews”, she probably would have been fired. But, of course, it’s just fine to degrade the pagans, right?
Um, not so much.
If you feel like taking a stand on this, you can email the Today show here: email@example.com.
You can call the show at 212-644-4249, press 1 and ask to speak with Jim Bell, who is the Producer of the Today Show.
It is time to step up and tell people that paganism is not meant to be mocked and degraded. We, as pagans, friends or relatives of pagans (or readers of pagan blogs!) will not stand for religious bigotry.
