Sarah Bond on Possessed Politicians

Here, which begins

At a recent Hillary Clinton campaign rally on Tuesday, October 11,President Obama took the opportunity to address some grave accusations waged against both himself and Hillary Clinton as of late, namely that they are demons. In reaction to a comment by radio host Alex Jones, who said the president smelled of sulfur, Obama playfully took a sniff of his own shirt sleeve and declared that he did not, in fact, agree with that assertion.

The accusation of demon possession has a long history within early Christian literature and liturgy–even if demon possession seems only the stuff of horror movies today.
