'Harry Potter' Books Banned From Tennessee Catholic School

The decision at St. Edward Catholic School in Nashville was made its pastor, Reverend Dan Reehil. Reehil writes in an email that the use of "curses" and "spells" cast was a reason for his decision. 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, Reverend Dan Reehil, via email. Reehill adds that the seven-book series runs the risk of inspiring someone to "raise evil spirits.". Many reading these books could be persuaded to believe these acts are perfectly fine, even good or spiritually healthy, Reverend Dan Reehil, via email. Reehill even says that he was advised by exorcists to take the books away. I have consulted several exorcists, both in the United States and in Rome, and they have recommended removing the books from circulation, Reverend Dan Reehil, via email.
