1999 called, they want their headline back. Yes, a Tennesse Catholic school has banned Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire from their school library.
The year might be 2019, but this Catholic school in Tennessee is still adhering to rules that expired more than a decade ago. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has been banned from their library. According to Entertainment Weekly, the reason is due to the pastor believing reading them risks “conjuring evil spirits.”
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, it was customary to read an article about schools banning seemingly innocent books. Many religious public schools would block any book they deemed provocative or potentially controversial.
The last I checked, Harry Potter was a reasonably innocuous book series, not the Necromonicon.
