The Question of Pagan Mixing with Harry Potter
The Wildhunt Blog has an interesting post concering the question of Pagan mixing with Harry Potter. With the latest film now hitting theaters, the post notes that Pagans have taken different postures concerning Potter, with some eschewing any connection and others drawing upon the interest and success of Potter as a tool for promoting Pagan interests. This interesting post concludes by raising an interesting question:
But the larger question is, should we be intentionally mixing with Harry Potter? Isn't using the books and films as a recruitment tool for a Pagan-run organization exactly what intolerant Christians blast J.K. Rowling for all the time? Isn't it a bit unseemly to hijack an author's work in order to make money for your own organization?
