The church of Buffy

Filed under: TV, Treats — posted by Breakup Girl @ 1:12 pm

Headline of the week from The Daily Mail: “50,000 women abandoning church every year as Buffy the Vampire Slayer turns them on to witchcraft.”

Dr. Kristin Aune of the University of Derby, “said many young women are put off going to church because they link it with traditional values,” the Mail reported, adding, “She also said television icons such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, who promote female empowerment, discourage women from attending services.”

Hmm! Reminds me of that classic from BG anti-crush Pat Robertson: “Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

Well. Who says we can’t have it all?

  1. That’s, like, the best headline ever. Why can’t we have headlines like that in the US? I didn’t get a clear sense that Dr. Aune was condemning women or Wicca so much as analyzing causes for women leaving the traditional church. Unlike Pat R., who equates killing children with lesbianism.

    But thanks for the link, I hadn’t laid eyes on ASH in far too long.
