Fear of “evil spirits”, Nashville priest has Harry Potter banned from school

Students will no longer be able to borrow books relating to the adventures of the famous wizard. The priest of St Edward’s school in Nashville, Tennessee (United States) had the seven books in the Harry Potter series banished from the library of this Catholic establishment.

Reason? “The curses and spells cited in these books are real curses. When read by humans, evil spirits may arise, ”wrote Father Dan Reehil, in an email to parents of students.

According to the Tennessean newspaper, Dan Reehil also explains in this text that he addressed exorcists in the United States and the Vatican before deciding to ban the works in this series launched in 1997 and which met with immense success.

Already banned several times

Rebecca Hammel, head of schools in the Diocese of Nashville, assured that Dan Reehil had “the canonical authority to make such decisions”, adding that the books would no longer be present in the school’s new library.

In seven volumes, readers follow of a young wizard named Harry Potter at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and his fight against Lord Voldemort.

The literary saga of British novelist J.K Rowling has been repeatedly banned in schools in the United States and the United Kingdom for allegedly promoting Satanic values ​​or black magic.
