Victory

Benjamin Burr: My petition, along with several others, persuaded Facebook to remove those horrible groups. I do not claim victory for my petition alone. I claim a victory alongside my fellow Pagan/Wiccan brothers and sisters for ALL of the petitions that were started, and for the group effort made by the Pagan and Wiccan communities who united together as one to make a positive change.

Pagans and Wiccans should be protected just like Christians, Muslims, Jews, and any other group because it is a religion; all religions should be protected under Facebook's Community Standards. Facebook should not turn a blind eye to the hate groups that are being started on their social networking site just because this particular religion isn't mainstream or popular. These groups promote hatred and violence by using libel to spread lies and encourage intolerance. Facebook should treat and protect everyone equally. It's only fair and it's only right.

To:
Take down the page "Witches Must Die By Fire" and the group "Those Witches Nd Wizards Must Die By Fire By Force". These pages and groups promote hatred and violence towards a group of people just because of their religion. By signing this petition I state that I will not turn a blind eye to religious intolerance or violent hate speech.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This sort of bigoted, hateful pages should not be allowed on Facebook. I've reported both of them & some of the contributors of the latter page to Facebook who will do nothing in all likelihood. The really worrying thing is the 'Witches nd Wizards...' page originates from a country (one of many) in Africa where there's been many instances of individuals being accused of sorcery, or 'just being different' & murdered, often in the most brutal fashion. Sites/pages that perpetuate such intolerance/hatred/ or violence should not be allowed on social media sites. It's disgusting.

      No one should be burned for other peoples ignorance and lack of knowledge when it comes to the craft.

      I am a practicing Wiccan and these people believe that I should be murdered for my beliefs
