Situation Vacant: Exorcists

Vatican and Pope Francis Seek New Demon Exorcists

The Catholic Church says it's dealing with a spike in Satanic worship by training a growing team of specialized priests to keep the devil at bay.

A new push to train priests in Italy and Spain to perform the mysterious rite of exorcism could rid these two Catholic countries of their demons—or at least confront a growth in occult worship.


Taraborelli, who says he performs up to 100 exorcisms some weeks, is part of a new training program in Italian Catholic churches designed to teach priests called to this particular specialization. Similar programs have been launched in Spain and Malta, where a spike in devil-worshiping practices has caused concern among Catholics. A host of new websites advertising everything from pagan rituals to training in black magic and the occult have sprung up in recent years and the Catholic church is hoping to fight fire with holy water. In Milan, seven new exorcists have been certified for service. In Florence, five new exorcists now take appointments

So how can pope modernise catholic church, whilst at the same time supporting this kind of bollocks?

Modernising, right.... :coffee:

Because it's S.O.S. All that Bergoglio's after is to stop pissing people off and attract more people to his church. Nothing about their supernatural beliefs will change.

100 a week? Fuck, there's a lot of demon activity these days. Wonder what they do with all the succubi? They could send one round here once a week, I wouldn't complain.

I'd be really surprised if anybody actually does worship Satan. Even Satanists only seem to use Satan as a symbol and to annoy fundie Christians.

Still, seems to be a pretty standard business model; create a non-existant problem and then offer to fix it (for a reasonable fee, of course).
Power doesn't corrupt, it reveals. Only when someone is free from constraints and consequences do they show their true character.
