Students at a Catholic school in Nashville, Tennessee, won’t be checking out the Harry Potter books from their school library anytime soon.
The Rev. Dan Reehil said in an email to the St. Edward Catholic School community that he’d consulted several exorcists, who recommended removing the books from the library because the spells within them could summon evil spirits.
A spokeswoman told a reporter at the Tennessean that a parent’s inquiry prompted Reehil’s investigation and decision to remove the books from the K-8 school’s library.
According to the Tennessean, Reehil is out of the office until tomorrow, so stay tuned for further developments if the media is able to get in touch with him.
