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.

    Well, it is a running joke in my family that after we ruin the planet with carbon and nukes, the mutant humans who survive will find an intact copy of the Harry Potter series and think of him as a god and turn build a religion around the books. Potterians.

    All we can hope i that these indoctrinated children some day wake up and wise up.
    It took me a while, but I did.
    My charismatic catholic mother indoctrinated me into a lot of scary stooopid shit which ultimately impacted my life by maikng me waste the best years of my life.
    Did you know that if you have sex with people before you are married, you inherit all their sins as well as the sins of those they have had sex with??? Fucking scare tactics to keep girls virgins.
    Did you know questioning theology means your intellect is of the devil?

    Anyway, taking things on “faith” is a construct developed to counter the cognitively preoperational level magical thinking that religion requires of thinking people.
    Glad I’ M OUT!. Literally years of my life that I can’t get back, though.

      This is also a page right out of 12-step “programs”. Simply absurd.

    “France’s National Assembly (lower house) began hearings this week on a draft law that would prohibit any practice aimed at “curing” homosexuality. The two MPs behind the project hope to submit a final bill by early 2020.

    Also known as “conversion therapies” and “reorientation therapies”, such practices claim to be able to alter an individual’s sexual orientation. Young gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transsexuals have been subjected to all sorts of questionable methods aimed at “reorienting” them toward heterosexuality.”

    “The PsyGay association underscores the importance of raising awareness of the challenges that “potentially fragile” young people may be facing and the dangers of treatments claiming to “cure” homosexuality. If the bill succeeds, France would join the 18 US states that have already outlawed such practices”

    Yup, spells and curses are as real as imaginary sky friends who show their love by watching us kill each other a few at a time or by the millions.

    Harry Potter got kids away from video games and into reading. i’m sure you won’t find the Lord of the Rings there, either. just lots of religous stuff. santimous crap.
