I dunno if this really goes here, but I figured it’s about a book, sort of.
So this evening I was driving around and couldn’t find anything on the radio, and wound up on the local Christian station where (you guessed it) a fellow was talking about the dangers of Harry Potter. He was not all that rabid about it, actually. But anyway, he then made the following weird statement: that Rowling has studied witchcraft and the occult (I’m sure she looked into it), and that she has said that many Wiccans, witches, and “occultists” have actually told her that they assumed that she was Wiccan, because she got so many things right and accurate.
Now, of the Wiccans of my acquaintance, very few of them recite spells in fake Latin, go to boarding schools in the north of England, or wear pointy hats. But perhaps I don’t know the right sort of Wiccans. So, oh Doper Wiccans, is it even possible that anyone really thought Rowling was a true Wiccan from her books? Did she get something ‘right?’ And does anyone know where this guy might have gotten the idea that Rowling has actually made a statement to that effect? He seemed to feel that he was quoting her.
