Harry Potter and Yoga are dangerous, even Satanic

A former chief exorcist at the Vatican says yoga and Harry Potter are ‘dangerous’, even Satanic.

In an interview with the Telegraph, Fr Gabreile Amorth, who for four years held the position of the Vatican’s chief exorcist, and who has cleansed hundreds of people of evil spirits, said Yoga is Satanic and JK Rowling’s Harry Potter books are no less dangerous.

Amorth says the problem with Yoga is it leads to worship of Hinduism and “all eastern religions are based on a false belief in reincarnation”, and Harry Potter books, that on the face of it seem innocuous, but actually encourage children to believe in black magic and wizardry.

“In Harry Potter the Devil acts in a crafty and covert manner, under the guise of extraordinary powers, magic spells and curses,” Amorth said.

“Satan is always hidden and what he most wants is for us not to believe in his existence. He studies every one of us and our tendencies towards good and evil, and then he offers temptations.”

Amorth says science is incapable of explaining evil, and not worth a jot.

“The scientist simply explores what God has already created.”

Giorgio Furlan, the founder of the Yoga Academy of Rome labelled the claims as “outrageous”, and said yoga had nothing to do with religion, “least of all Satanism.”

“Whoever says that shows that they know absolutely nothing about yoga,” he said.

Father Amorth has also claimed that the sex abuse scandals which have engulfed the Catholic Church in the US, Ireland, Germany and other countries was proof that the Anti-Christ is waging a war against the Holy See.
