Some say the Divil is dead and buried in Killarney. The Pope is receiving adulation from the International Association of Exorcists for reviving the war on demons.
At a conference last week in the Vatican, two hundred exorcist delegates (who function mainly in South American and Eastern Europe, which are plainly more susceptible to demons than the rest of the world…) met to talk about how Satanic cults are spreading like wildfire in the age of the Internet.
During the conference, the Rev. Cesar Truqui, an exorcist based in Switzerland, recounted one experience he had aboard a Swissair flight. “Two lesbians,” he said, had sat behind him on the plane. Soon afterward, he said, he felt Satan’s presence. As he silently sought to repel the evil spirit through prayer, one of the women, he said, began growling demonically and threw chocolates at his head.
Asked how he knew the woman was possessed, he said that “once you hear a Satanic growl, you never forget it. It’s like smelling Margherita pizza for the first time. It’s something you never forget.”
