------------ Just about any fantasy fiction you find-----------------
Were you listing the books you find are a misrepresentation or an accurate representation? (I am not sure that just about all fantasy fiction is accurate to Wicca, but maybe you feel differently, or maybe you meant those books are misrepresentations. That's why I ask.)
I agree with you. It bugs me because it's one of the few belief systems that, IMO, don't allow for poor treatment of others. I don't think other religions themselves intend to allow for it, either, but in the real world it's people of other religions citing their religions documents to excuse such behavior. I've never seen any Pagans do something cruel in the name of their religion. Anyway, thanks for weighing in.
I will check out the movie Merlin.
I saw Wickerman. I don't remember the details, but wouldn't approve of that meant as as a reflection of paganism. I'm sure there are people out there who are unstable enough to do such things, if they could get away with it, but I simply can't agree with it as a fair representation of any religion, and *especially* not pagan beliefs.
I've heard good things about the Sweep Series (by Cate Tiernan)
Anyone have any thoughts on that?
And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. Mark 4:10-12
What does that have to do with Wiccan fiction? Just saying, I don't think you'll find a Wiccan preaching to you, because they tend to be respectful of other's beliefs.
