Worried that the ridiculous little rake ritual put on by a bunch of childish “satanists” in Oklahoma City might have released non-existent “demons” into the city, Catholic officials in the area say they have done the very important duty of exorcising any of those supernatural bad guys from the venue at which it was held.
Oklahoma City’s Roman Catholic archdiocese said on Thursday that its archbishop and a priest performed “prayers of exorcism” to help rid the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall of dangerous spirits after a satanic “black mass” was held there.
The black mass was held Sept. 21 at the venue by a satanist group known as the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu Syndicate despite protests from the archdiocese. Thousands of people demonstrated outside the event.Aarchdiocese spokeswoman Diane Clay said the ancient exorcism ritual was performed the following day at the public’s request. She said the archdiocese received dozens of emails and calls from people concerned about entering the building or attending events there.
“From the beginning, we have taken seriously the dark and dangerous spirits being invited into our community,” Archbishop Paul Coakley said Thursday in a written statement. “To address those concerns, we visited the venue the next morning to pray prayers of exorcism over the place and to pray the prayers for cleansing.”
Well good for you. You could have been more useful, I imagine, by picking up litter from the parking lot.
