and then apologizes, sort of, not really, quite smarmily<br><br><a href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/25411068#25411068" target="_blank">http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540...11068#25411068</a><br>
The "apology" is at 2:25 into the clip.<br><br>
Now, I think she's probably just ignorant that there are pagans in modern society and she was just letting her ignorant flag fly. But the smarmy, obnoxious apology was what really ticked me off. I'll be emailing nbc.

I'm sorry, I must have missed the apology while my Pagan self was snacking on the roasted baby with turnips I just got out of the oven.

I don't really care what Kathie Lee Gifford thinks of my choice of spiritual path. But, once informed that there were people who self-id as pagans and follow those paths, you would think she would show a little remorse.

She's just jealous she got passed over when it was time to sacrifice a virgin.

That's a lot of stupid in one place. Egyptians are good but Pagans are bad? Does she think the Pagans were reading the Bible and praising Jesus?<br><br>
And that was not an apology. At all.

people are dumb. I had a Catholic friend ask me why Easter always moves and isn't the same day every year and when I said to her that it has to do with it's Pagan roots and the moon, she responded, "Easter has nothing to do with Pagans, it's religious."<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

umm, actually easter corresponding with the moon has roots in Judaism, not pagan. it has to do with passover, which is biblical linked with a certain phase of the moon.<br>

True. But the egg and rabbit symbols have pagan roots.<br><br>
There was a lot more travel and interaction between ancient peoples than we often think. A lot of Abrahamic and pagan traditions overlap.

On behalf of many, many, many Christians, I apologize, we do not agree with Kathie Lee Gifford's bigotry and do not hold with judging those with different religions or believe in treating them in such a manner.<br><br>
We also do not believe in Kathie Lee Gifford being our spokesperson

No worries, Sacha, I never thought Kathie Lee spoke for Christians. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Heck, some of my best friends are Christian.<br><br>
I'm actually more annoyed that the powers that be at nbc news didn't take her gross misstep more seriously and demand that she be more contrite.
