A Tennessee Catholic school has removed the “Harry Potter” books from their library overs concerns involving “evil spirits.”
Rev. Dan Reehil of Nashville’s St. Edward Catholic School said he consulted exorcists in the U.S. and Rome who recommended removing the books. In response to the decision, Catholic Diocese of Nashville superintendent Rebecca Hammel stated Reehil has the final say at his school.
Reehil wrote, “The curses and spells used in the books are actual curses and spells; which when read by a human being risk conjuring evil spirits into the presence of the person reading the text.”
