Religious Themes in the Shows We Love

I think this is appropriate to this community.  In the fic I'm currently writing I'm about to do some very involved spells to facilitate the climax.  I've got Wiccan friends who can help me but after Writer Con I face a conundrum.  I heard two opposing viewpoints.  Both started from the point that Joss obviously knew little about Wicca and that neither Willow nor Tara followed the tenets of that faith.  Some said this could be corrected in fic, others said it was disrepectful to pretend they were real Wiccans at this late date because that's not how they were represented in the show.  Opinions?  Discussion?

I think this will be the approach I use. For my purposes I think it's well withing creative license to shorten a long ceremony to maintain reader interest. This is a story, not a how to manual or religious text. Since the practice of Wicca is so varied I find it unlikely you will insult someone unless you break the major tenets, which ME did regularly.
