The practice of exorcism isn’t anything new. It’s been around for thousands of years. But thanks to the age of technology a Scottsdale reverend says he is getting a chance to help people possessed by demons, all over the world. 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.” Larson says he’s done more than 20,000 exorcisms. He’s sure there’ll never be any shortage of the devil’s demons.
Larson is doing nothing more than trivializing the very real problem of evil. What. A. Buffoon. With thanks to Antonio ‘Mythbuster’ Lombatti for pointing the report out.
