What the shit?

A Catholic school in Tennessee has removed the Harry Potter books from its library after the school’s priest decided they could cause a reader to conjure evil spirits.
In an email obtained by The Tennessean , the Rev. Dan Reehil of Nashville’s St. Edward Catholic School said he consulted exorcists in the U.S. and Rome who recommended removing the books.
Reehil wrote, “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.”
Catholic Diocese of Nashville superintendent Rebecca Hammel said Reehil has the final say at his school.
Oh he consulted with exorcists.
Well alright then because surely THEY must know what they are talking about.
These are not actually instruction manuals for magic, they are just fucking children’s fantasy books.
JK Rowling is not a head witch, and the only magical thing she did was to inspire children to embrace reading.
But this is the problem with believing in supernatural nonsense.
Once you open the door to superstition you find yourslef vulnerable to the most ridiculous fears imaginable.
The fact that this ignorant moron is in charge of children is probably the only thing worth fearing in this story.
