I’ll Be Damned: Exorcisms Are On the Uptick

The Catholic Church has established an exorcist hotline in Milan, its biggest diocese, to cope with demand. Monsignor Angelo Mascheroni, the diocese’s chief exorcist since 1995, said the curia had also appointed twice as many exorcists to cope with a doubling in the number of requests for help over 15 years.

“We get many requests for names, addresses and phone numbers; that’s why we’ve set up a switchboard in the curia from Monday to Friday from 2.30pm to 5pm,” he told the chiesadimilano website.

“People in need can call and will be able to find a priest in the same area who doesn’t have to travel too far.” And to that end, the number of demon-busting priests on call has increased from six to 12.

The Monsignor said he knew of one exorcist who had been seeing up to 120 people a day. “But with so little time per client he was only able to offer a quick blessing. That’s not enough,” he said. ”There should be two to four appointments a day, no more, otherwise it’s too much.”

It’s not clear why the number of suspected possessions has risen so sharply. But Monsignor Mascheroni said that part of the increase might be explained by the rising numbers of parents having difficulty controlling disobedient teenagers.

    The US government needs to be exorcised starting at the White House. Also the way John Roberts head spun around when he ruled on Obamacare, I would say he is a great candidate too.

      Right! But you can’t exorcise the Anti-christ. Instead, the sheeple of the US put the beast in the White House.

      Doesn’t make you feel very good about the future, does it? These brainwashed, spoiled, entitled, dumbed down products of our gummint controlled Youth Indoctrination Day Camps aren’t intelligent enough to find their own butts with both hands and a flashlight. They make the lamestream media liberal bias irrelevant, cause they can’t read anyway.

    • jerry sweet

      they already are at the helm.all the hippies of the 60′s grew up and now instead of hating government,but still wanting all the free goodies,they have now become the goverment.difference is they don’t want the rest of us commons to share THEIR goodies.i was 20 years old in 1968 and watched this filthy misguided sect grow into a cancer and its terminal!!

    Exorcize the greed from your party!

    Ultimately you are avoiding the fact that greed is one of the deadly sins and those, whose side you are on, is run by those,. who are not at all like you. You want us to feed your monsters. Robme is miles above you an, if your lucky, will drop a few crumbs, maybe.

    When the richest control everything what will make them happy?
    You are their pawns.

  • jerry sweet
