- Reverend Dan Reehil of St. Edward Catholic School has implemented a ban on the Harry Potter books in their school library.
- According to the school pastor, J. K. Rowling’s novels contain actual magic spells and curses, allowing its readers to “conjure evil spirit.”
- Parents of the students received an email from Reehil, informing them about the ban.
A Catholic school has just officially banned the Harry Potter books, believing that the magic spells and curses in the novels are actually real and can potentially “conjure evil spirits.” According to reports, Nashville, Tennessee’s St. Edward Catholic School has dropped all seven titles of the series this school year 2019-2020.
Apparently, school pastor Reverend Dan Reehil claims he made the decision after consulting with exorcists from Rome and the United States. So now the school’s library will no longer be having the J. K. Rowling books in their shelves.
Not merely fiction but a “clever deception,” said Reverend Dan Reehil.
In an email sent to the students’ parents, the school pastor explained:
“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.”
Meanwhile, school superintendent Rebecca Hammel shared that the Catholic Diocese of Nashville doesn’t have any official stand regarding the issue.
However, she also pointed out that Reehil does have the right to implement such a ban, saying every pastor is authorized to “make such decisions” for their respective schools.
J. K. Rowling’s massively successful Harry Potter series had released seven books from 1997 to 2007 and it inspired 8 blockbuster films starring Daniel Radcliffe as the title character, along with Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley and Emma Watson as Hermione Granger. So far, the spin-off franchise Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have released 2 movies and both have also gained considerable box office earnings.
