I think it was very informative. its just a real shame that we have to be so judgemental of the way others do things that we have to come up with classifications like fluffy bunny in order to put them down. sometimes my veiws probably do fall under the fluffy bunny typecasting because I have in the past found many good clues and hints to my own magical growth through fiction books and through movies but I also know enough not to believe everything I read or see on the screen too. I really hate that we find the need to look down our noses at people who are not at our place of growth or do not practice the craft as we do. But I guess that is part of being Human.

What you are talking about with regards to your own spiritual growth is a bit different, though, from what is typically classified as a fluffy bunny.  You are taking something from a book or movie, which resonates with you.  

If I understood correctly, you do not take a whole movie or book as the basis for your religion, nor do you take a fictional account, and see it as factual.  This is what qualifies one to be a fluffy bunny.  I mean just about everyone I have ever met, has found something in at least one movie or book, in their lifetime that makes sense.  It doesn't mean that they take the whole movie or book, and base their entire relgious/spiritual experience around it.

Also, I tend to see a difference between fluffies, and newbies.  You only become a fluffy, IMO, after repeated attempts to correct misinformation you have and/or are giving out.  For example, someone telling me that I cannot be pagan, because I eat meat, or because I do believe in causing harm to someone who is threatening myself or my family before they can do so.  This person I would classify as a fluffy, if they had already been told that not all pagans are vegetarians and not all pagans follow the Rede or anything similar.  However, if the person after having been informed of this had a more correct view of pagans, and quit saying such things, then they would not.

I think it has to do with the willingness to learn, rather than just straight lack of knowledge.Those who lack knowledge, are simply newbies.  Those who are unwilling to learn, are fluffies.
