Hate Crime Against Pagans/Wiccans

petition over offensive halloween decor 1:06 AM
Here’s the story:
Halloween Decoration Offends Witch
A Halloween decoration in Chicopee, Mass., featuring a witch hanging from the gallows is under fire from one neighbor who calls it a hate crime
My personal Comment to this was: “This is outrageous. What if the “hanging figure” was a Black person, or Jewish?”
And that is exactly what this is about – it’s not about religion, it’s about the factual depiction of something that actually took place – the killing of hundreds of thousands of real and alleged Pagans/Wiccans throughout history.
This is just as offensive as a burning cross on a black person’s lawn, or the nooses hanging from a tree not so long ago: The Jena Six – now, both actions were racially motivated – this is just what we are talking about – a hate crime. Period.
