In a parish in Gdańsk, northern Poland, earlier this week, three priests set fire to books including parts of J.K.Rowling’s famous Harry Potter series.

They also set ablaze other items that were linked to what they described as “the occult and magic.”

In a statement to the Catholic Information Agency, Archbishop Wojciech Polak, Poland’s Primate, said: “Books must not be burned but should be read so that one can debate their content in a critical manner.”
