A Romanian lawyer is suing his local Orthodox bishop and four priests claiming they failed to properly exorcise flatulent demons that were forcing him out of his home.
He claimed that after the failed exorcism the demons even started haunting him at his home at Pitesti in Arges County in central Romania.
The case alleging ‘religious malpractice’ is reportedly the first time there has been such an allegation made in a Romanian court.
The case has already been rejected by a lower court in Romania and was rejected again this week by the Romanian High Court, but now the businessmen says he plans to go to the European Court of Human Rights.
He told the court: ‘If they (the accused) represent the way of God then God’s ways are crooked. They did not remove the demons that made these bad smells as they promised to do, and I still see all sorts of demons in the form of animals, usually crows but also other such things, that are making my life miserable.
‘When I am at home they switch the TV on and off all the time, they make foul smells that give me headaches and basically roam unhindered around my house and my business.’
So, the “demons” did it. Wouldn’t it have been easier if he just blamed it on the dog?
