I was doing some research for my book about the historical accounts surrounding Sarah the daughter of Mary Madelene. Weather you believe that is the case or not is not the issue here. What is driving me crazy is that simply because this was a portion of a story in a fictional story means that it is now being seen as fiction itself by those that even themselves once believe... This seems to happen over and over. When the Craft came out people all over the place started seeing Wiccans and Pagans as dangerous (even more than usual).
The point is that when ever religious beliefs or practices are shown in a fictional light it gives those beliefs a bad representation and people seem to discredit them even more than before...
Does it drive anyone else crazy? Or am I it??
I don't watch those kinds of movies or read those kinds of books but it drives me nuts every time I drive by a church during Christmas time and see the nativity scene.

Yes and no. No because I know it's fiction, but yes because others will see it and think that it's an accurate portrayal of a belief and hold to that even when it is explained and proven to be false and the little bit that is truth to be highly exaggerated for ratings.

Sort of. I personally know it's fiction, and so it doesn't bother me. However, there are a lot of stupid people out there that believe anything and everything. Those are the people I worry about because they are easily influenced by what the see and hear. An inaccurate portrayal of any religion or belief can mean bad news when it is absorbed by those people.
