Harry Potter Books Banned at Nashville School to Avoid ‘Conjuring Evil Spirits’
Want to get me pissed off? Tell me a book of fiction for young readers that extols the virtues of friends, family, and love is evil.
A Catholic school in Nashville has banned all the Harry Potter books because they contain real spells. What the actual hell?
The Reverend Dan Reehil explained is “reasoning.”
These books present magic as both good and evil, which is not true, but in fact a clever deception. 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.
Holly Meyer, writing for Nashville Tennessean, has the whole story.
I hate this. If a school administrator had done this when my kid was in school I’d be in that person’s office immediately telling him off and telling the media what an idiot they were and demand they resign.
