Here’s a deranged priest that performs exorcisms who calls abortion a “demonic industry.” Listen to this guy. He’s nuts:
“Abortion is a demonic industry,” he told The Bulletin. “Abortion is blood sacrifice of innocent blood to the devil. The clinics are like temples, the doctors are like priests, the medical table is like their altar. It’s a ritualized sacrifice. They have a dogma called choice, a hierarchy called Planned Parenthood, and guardian angels in the form of police guards that will arrest you if you try to stop them.”
Now that’s some loaded language. He’s trying to make abortion look like a satanic religion, when really it’s just a medical procedure.
He said that there have been abortionists who have called abortion “their sacrament.”
As Wikipedia would say, “citation needed.” Perhaps someone said this, but if they did, they were joking. But he doesn’t sound like the kind of guy who would get a joke.
“Abortion is a spiritual evil,” he said. “If we are to beat it, we can’t just fight it in the political realm. It derives its power from below. To confront a force this strong, you need a massive amount of prayer.”
If God has such a problem with abortion, why doesn’t he do away with it? God allows or causes millions of miscarriages each year from natural causes. He told the Israelites to kill innocent children. He even killed King David’s son for David’s sin. The God of the Bible doesn’t seem to have any problem with killing children. So I wouldn’t expect his help in these matters.
Anyway, this crazy priest goes on about exorcisms and demonic influence. He says:
I’m very set against Harry Potter, it’s pumping into our children’s minds the language and imagery of the occult. It’s extremely spiritually dangerous….
The number of soft-core occultism in the form of things like Harry Potter, Wicca and the New Age is on the increase. These are the gateways to the hardcore stuff. Ask any inner-city police department if they’re seeing evidence of Satanism. They’re organizing whole task forces to deal with crimes having to do with these things.
What’s astounding is this nutjob actually believes magic exists! And who knows where he gets the idea that police are seeing evidence of Satanism and creating task forces against it. Probably from an email forward.
