Actually it does. One of the "minor orders" (I assume priests-to-be are still "ordained" in minor orders along their way, .. maybe not ??), but one of them was "exorcist".

I think exercising devils today has pretty much been taken over by Personal Trainers. Angel

Quote:He called for the establishment of a permanent training college or university where Catholic priests would be taught how to counter the malign influence of the Devil. “There doesn’t exist a training institution at university level. We need an interdisciplinary approach in which science collaborates with religion, and psychiatrists work with demonologists and exorcists.”

Sounds like Trump University. Maybe we should start this school ?

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Funny in the new article they admit that about only 1% are "possessed by Demons". How about that 1% is a new psychiatric illness.

It doesn't have to be.Environment, mental disorders,stress, anxiety, small room,religious symbols, one authoritative person or a group people chanting prayers, facial expression or voice of the exorcist or group of people, victim's mental state, placebo and other things can together create such phenomena.Its hard to point to any one factor as a prime cause.
Faith healer's 'slaying in spirit' and 'driving out demons' are somewhat similar to this phenomenon.

Really, I recommend watching "The United States of Tara"
Now, just imagine that someone with multiple personality disorder has an "alter" that happens to be a "demon".
Voila! Exorcism required.

Truth is stranger than fiction.

Your faith is not evidence, your opinion is not fact, and your bias is not wisdom

Me neither. Seems all the possession cases happen only to believers.

Funny, that.
Same with stigmata.

Well, in a lot of places atheists are still stigmatised enough as it is Drinking Beverage

I've certainly heard fundamentalists claim that atheists are possessed by demons.

What other POSSIBLE explanation could there be, after all, for someone not believing in god??
