Catholic priests in northern Poland have burned a number of books which they considered "sinful," including the famous Harry Potter series.
According to the BBC website, the group, called SMS, a branch of the Paradise Foundation, published on Facebook images of burning books in the city of Kushalin.
There was also a sculpture of Phil and a tribal mask burning on the books.
The group justified burning books with quotes from the Bible condemning magic, and the group sent Christian messages via SMS.
“Many of those who practiced magic gathered their books and burned them in front of everyone, so they calculated their value and found 50,000 pieces of money,” said a piece. of the Apostles Acts, quoted in the group's Facebook publication.
Harry Potter books by British author JK Rowling is believed to be the most popular fiction in history, selling over 500 million copies worldwide.
Some Christians object to novels taking magic as the main focus of storytelling, as Harry Potter fights the evil embodied in Lord Voldemort's dark wizard.
The conservative government of law and justice in Poland adopts traditional Catholic values, and the Church has a huge influence on Polish society.
