Since the "Harry Potter" series debuted more than 20 years ago, the books have prompted countless responses from religious leaders of varying faiths due to the witchcraft and wizardry featured in the books, among other reasons.

The books even showed up on the American Library Association's most challenged books list from 2000 to 2006, but it's been quite a while since the books made one of the ALA's yearly lists. However, one private school in Tennessee is raising questions about the books again.

St. Edward Catholic School in Nashville has removed the books from its library due to their magical contents, according to the Tennessean. The Rev. Dan Reehil, a pastor at the school, stated in an email that the spells in the books are "actual curses and spells" that could risk "conjuring evil spirits into the presence of the person reading the text," the Tennessean reported. The pastor went on to say he consulted with exorcists before making the decision to remove the books.
