True Blood ofende al colectivo real de...Brujos

Mensaje por Selene el Lun Ago 22, 2011 3:20 am

Según este artículo, parece ser que el colectivo de los brujos no están muy de acuerdo con la forma en la que los están representando en True Blood. Algunos comentan que un verdadero brujo debe tomar el control cuando se invoca un espíritu y no dejar que te posea... Y yo que pensaba que lo había visto todo en internet Rolling Eyes

Critics of bloody violence and excessive sex on TV have long had HBO's vampire drama True Blood in their cross hairs, but now the popular series has another group of wary citizens - witches, real ones.

The series' fourth season has focused on Marnie Stonebrook (Fiona Shaw), a seemingly harmless medium and leader of a Wiccan group who becomes the physical conduit for Antonia, a long dead witch who is bent on vengeance against vampires who persecuted and burned her at the stake.

Marnie winds up as the mouthpiece for Antonia's spell to drive the bloodsuckers of fictional True Blood town Bon Temps into the daylight. And that sort of deadly revenge, say some modern-day witches, is what gives witchcraft a bad name.

"I'm absolutely disappointed with the portrayal of Marnie," said one witch - and professor of biology at a college in New England - who goes by the magickal name Taarna RavenHawk.

"When Marnie gives up her 'power within,' which is a witch's ability to practise the craft without harming others, it allows possession by Antonia who becomes the controlling entity. Marnie lets it happen. It's unconscionable a witch would act this way."

Elaanie Stormbender, a witch and mother of five who lives in Jackson, Miss., said all the members of the small community of witches to which she belongs are displeased with Marnie's behaviour. "When witches invoke a spirit, they take precautions and retain full control to banish," she said. "Marnie didn't stay in control, so she's entirely to blame for giving herself over to being possessed."

Marnie's behaviour also feeds into some people's fears about witches tampering with forces beyond their control, and the character's recklessness only reinforces this fear, Stormbender said.

Christopher Penczak, co-founder and president of The Temple of Witchcraft, a religious non-profit organization based in southern New Hampshire that teaches witchcraft to students worldwide, also had concerns about Marnie's negative impact on the overall reputation of witches.

"Marnie does communicate with the dead but she comes into witchcraft lacking groundedness," said Penczak, author of The Inner Temple of Witchcraft: Magick, Meditation and Psychic Development. "A witch who gets good training usually learns to balance that with discipline, strength and focus. I would have liked to see a witch who was more competent and had a clearer sense of will and purpose."

Another red flag for Penczak is how Marnie has begged spirits to enter her. He said modern-day witches don't look for spirits indiscriminately. In fact, they are very specific about what they want to summon. "They'd never say 'I'm opening the door to whoever wants to come through,' " Penczak said.

Being a witch is hard work, too, and a key complaint about Marnie is that she makes her job seem way too easy. Moreover, she actually raised the dead - something real witches don't do. They just communicate with those who have passed on.

"Ethical witches communicate with the dead, not bring them back to life. Crossing these lines was very grave and not something any of us would advocate. She went overboard," said RavenHawk.

Of course, going overboard is exactly what True Blood does best with not just its vampires, but its shapeshifters and werewolves and even werepanthers. It's the sort of behaviour that spikes ratings and lures viewers.

"My witch friends are rabid fans of True Blood, and watch it every week," said Ellen Dugan, a witch and priestess of a six-member coven she co-founded in St. Louis, Missouri.

Dugan, the author of Practical Protection Magick and Natural Witchery, conceded that Marnie's portrayal contains a sensational element, but noted that her witch friends laughed during a recent levitation scene.

"Most witches have a good enough sense of humour," she said.

Esto me recuerda a aquel senador que quiso demandar a Dios XDD lo típico que solo ocurre en guirilandia... en fin, por esa regla de tres los españoles también deberíamos demandarles porque con el proceso de Zugarramurdi están contribuyendo a prolongar la leyenda negra de la Inquisición española. Que es cierto que se cargaron a muchísima gente pero por otros motivos, en España hubo muy pocos procesos por brujería, fue la Inquisición luterana y calvinista la que quemó brujas a montones y sin embargo el pato lo estamos pagando nosotros¬¬
