So the new Pope has decided it was a good idea to set up ‘Exorcism Squads’ to combat Satan around the world. In fact, the Pope has declared WAR on Satan. Wow!
Nothing like an unseen, abstract, unproven concept to get the masses mobile! So the Pope has decided that demon possession is on the rise and it’s up to those intrepid ‘Exorcism Squads’ to get the job done! I just have to ask, do they dress like the Ghostbusters? Oh geez I hope they dress like the Ghostbusters.
The Vatican believes that people are turning to the occult for all their religious answers, and this is a direct result of rock music and the internet. I say, perhaps if the Vatican had better answers, maybe people wouldn’t need to turn and look some more. But for real, blaming rock music and the internet for a rise in demon possession? Seriously, what is wrong with these people? Here I was the whole time foolishly thinking that it was belief in the abstract concepts of good and evil in Christianity that led to Satanism, I mean after all, didn’t they invent Satan and make him popular?
My final thought goes as such, even if people do want to become Satanists and occultists instead of being Catholic, so what? Correct me if I am wrong, but don’t we live in an age of choice and free will? Last time the Christians had the power to force thought on people it didn’t go too well. Are these people forgetting that it’s deep into the aughts of the new millennium? They don’t have the authority or the power to forcibly take people and ‘cast the demons out of them’. So what exactly the heck is this all about? And how can millions of people actually take this junk seriously?
