Fox News has been going on about how the University of Missouri has asked professors to be accommodating to religious groups. Fox is upset that one of the religious groups is Wicca. On Fox & Friends: Tucker Carlson Attacks Wiccans As Christianity Haters! – NewsHounds.
They talk endlessly about how many holidays the Wiccans have. But they don’t even have the most number of holidays.
And the guide published by the university never said to NOT schedule anything on these days, just to take it into consideration.
Perhaps Tucker Carlson thinks that major events should be scheduled during the Jewish High Holidays. (The University of Chicago did not start classes in the fall until AFTER the Jewish high holidays. Maybe Mr. Carlson has a problem with that. (It made the fall term pretty short, and spring term run very late, but what are you going to do when the faculty wouldn’t be available for a big part of 2 weeks?)
Fox News and Tucker Carlson aren’t upset about religious holidays; they are upset about Wicca. They are upset because it is no longer possible to cram Christianity down every non-Christian throat. Otherwise, they wouldn’t lie by omission. If they are upset only because Wicca has one more holiday than Christianity (as far as this UMissouri guide is concerned) why are they not upset about the extra 4 holidays the Jewish faith enjoys?
