Bob Larson, the colossal fraud who claims to cast out demons, has found yet another way to bilk the credulous out of their money. He’s now offering exorcisms over Skype for a mere $295. And it’s all tax-deductible, of course, because it’s a ministry.
You may not believe in the practice but it is still prevalent among many religions, including Rev. Bob Larson’s evangelical Christianity.
“In simple terms, an exorcism is the process of expelling an evil spirit from an individual who has become somehow invaded and demonized by that being, and sending it back to hell and freeing the person,” Larson said.
In the age of electronics, exorcisms are done over Skype.
So what does Larson say to those people who see these dramatic exchanges as nothing more than a disturbing night club act?
“It’s real,” Larson says. “There would be no reason to theatrically stage this for any reason. Why would anybody do that? I have no idea.”
Because you can charge people $295 to pretend to rid them of demons that don’t exist, obviously.
