I've heard of religious schools and libraries banning the "Harry Potter" books because they promote witchcraft. But this is a new one.
St. Edward Catholic School in Nashville, Tennessee just banned the "Harry Potter" series from the school library . . . but not just for promoting witchcraft. This school had bigger fish to fry than THAT.
Here's the explanation from Reverend Dan Reehil, the pastor who runs the school.
Quote, "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."
Reehil also says he consulted with several exorcists who confirmed his theory and told him to ban the books.
