No more crones on broomsticks

So says Brooks Alexander, author of the latest anti-cult ministry book on contemporary Paganism (hey, we dropped the "Neo-" a while back), Witchcraft Goes Mainstream.

"The old crone on a broomstick is gone," says Alexander. "In her place is a young, hip, sexually magnetic woman who worships a goddess and practices socially acceptable magic."

Rich Poll of Apologia Report crows over the book's favorable mention on a Pagan blog: "Praise from one's opponent is high praise indeed."

The author claims "personal experience in the occult," but then that can mean anything from a detailed study of Neoplatonic theurgy to merely having used a Ouija board once, so who knows?
