Let me answer that question with a head-butt

Dr Kristin Aune, a sociologist at the University of Derby, has authored a report claiming Buffy the Vampire Slayer is "slaying" (lols) church attendance among women. Nothing the Church of England has done -- or has failed to do -- enters into it, apparently.

The report claims more than 50,000 women a year have deserted their congregations over the past two decades because they feel the church is not relevant to their lives. It says that instead young women are becoming attracted to the pagan religion Wicca, where females play a central role, which has grown in popularity after being featured positively in films, TV shows and books.

Also, chicks dig vampires.
