That may be so, tho I doubt it very much. However, a few years ago the Family did form some kind of NRM coalition with the various other NRMs (cults/sects) such as the JWs, Scientology and Wicca. Of course, the cartoon witches in Harry Potter have very little to do with the real thing.
I dunno. I think the Family barely has time to dog-paddle to keep up with the latest Maria & Peter slop, let alone to read their own spurious books by C.S. Lewis and Marilyn Monroe. Why would they ever let them read outsiders' books?
Now, they MIGHT approve them watching the movies as Berg's old theory was it's OK to watch movies but not read books, as movies take so little time compared to reading books. Wow! What a mental sponge he had become, getting all his spiritual revelations from movies.
