A group of Catholic priests in Poland have staged a book burning regarded as “sacrilegious”, including titles from the Harry Potter and Twilight series.
The SMS from Heaven foundation destroyed dozens of books alongside other household items during a ceremony in the city of Koszalin over the weekend. Posts made by the evangelical group on Facebook show books deemed inappropriate, such Harry Potter and the vampire romance series Twilightburning on a bonfire.
A statue of an elephant, a tribal mask and a pink umbrella were also set on fire as part of the event. “We obey the word,” the group wrote on social media alongside the photographs, quoting several bible verses condemning magic, witchcraft and astrology, The Independent reports.
