Harry Potter removed from Tennessee Catholic school library

Nashville: A Catholic school in the US state of Tennessee has removed the Harry Potter books from its library after the school’s priest decided they could cause a reader to conjure evil spirits.

The Reverend Dan Reehil of Nashville’s St Edward Catholic School said he consulted exorcists in the US and Rome who recommended removing the books, according to an email obtained by The Tennessean.

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.”

Catholic Diocese of Nashville superintendent Rebecca Hammel said Reehil has the final say at his school.

Hammel said she thinks the books by J.K. Rowling are still on the shelves of other libraries in the diocese.
