The Middle Path, One Day At A Time

The Exorcism of Bobby Jindal

Leave a comment

Exorcisms are apparently coming back in style. Utne Reader has some interesting commentary and links to more information about this … ah … unusual throwback to the Middle Ages.

“To the people who come to see me, I first advise them to go see a doctor or a psychologist,” the official exorcist of the Diocese of Rome, Father Gabriele Amorth, told the Spanish newspaper La Razon, but there are still enough possessed people to keep him busy. At 82 years old, Amorth has performed an estimated 70,000 exorcisms in his lifetime, he continues to work seven days each week, and his schedule is full for the next two months. Amorth also gave some insight into the roll of exorcisms in politics, telling La Razon, “the devil likes to take over those that hold political positions.”
