Catholic Church Combatting Freelance Exorcists

bill-swift - May 16, 2014

The Catholic Church is launching a new campaign to train new exorcists. The problem, in the eyes of the Church, is that there are way too many freelance exorcists going around expelling demons from the possessed. These scabs rarely have the adequate training to take on the Prince of Darkness. It's like when employers bring in unskilled labor to replace union workers. If you think about it, priests are the exorcism union. I'm not sure how you get into the freelance exorcism business. Do you just wake up one day and say, "You know what? I'm going to expel demons for fun and profit!" or is it something that you've always dreamed about but didn't want to do the whole priest thing? I'm not sure.

I don't understand where you even find an unlicensed exorcist. Do they advertise on Craigslist? Do they have a Facebook page. Personally I think if you get a Craigslist exorcist you get what you get. Chances are your soul will end up in hell. Caveat emptor.
