Rev. Daniel Reehil of the St. Edward Catholic School in Nashville consulted with exorcists in the US and Rome and decided not to include the books in the collection of a newly opened library.

& # 39; These books present magic as both good and evil, which is not true, but in fact a clever deception, & # 39; wrote the pastor in a recent e-mail to a parent, reports the Tennessean.

& # 39; The curses and spells used in the books are actual curses and spells; who are at risk of evoking evil spirits in the presence of the person reading the text when reading by a person, & the priest explained.

It is not clear whether he is the & # 39; Unforgivable curses: Avada Kedavra, Imperius and Cruciatus & # 39; or another so-called malicious word from the popular book series of J.K. Rowling.

School officials did not respond immediately when DailyMail.com contacted.

Rebecca Hammel, chief inspector of schools for the Catholic Diocese of Nashville, confirmed that Reehil sent the email and said he also informed the faculty at the K through 8th grade school, according to Tennessean.

Although the books are available elsewhere in the district, Reehil's question is whether they should be in his school, Hammel said.

The 8-book Potter series and other related stories, audio recordings, films and games focus on a young wizard and the evil that he and his family have been confronted with.

The Catholic Church has no position on the Potter books in this case.

Hammel explained why Reehil could still take a position.
