I wonder what would be the point of casting a demon out of a corpse?

She wasn't dead yet! lol Sorry I guess my post wasn't worded very well. They were praying just after she had been diagnosed with the cancer.

maybe the demon would be upset if the body was buried/cremated while it was still inside

Unfortunately regardless of religion, many people do believe in evil spirits and demons. Even in Buddhism there are some sects that believe in spirits called "nats".

This is not unique to Christianity, or even modern history. While the west has advanced in science the ancient world, including polytheism mistook illness as being possessed. Claudious it is now highly suspected by the medical experts based upon the accounts of the time, had epilepsy and those in that polytheism thought it was some sort of possession.

Unfortunately you can find this kind of delusion worldwide. Even when I was in Japan I watched a TV show and without understanding the language I could tell that the people in it flopping and groaning and screaming, that it was their version of what they thought spirit possessions were.

But no doctor I would call sane or ethical would ever sell any of this crap. If you get cancer or any other disease or mental illness, it is genes and or environmental factors, but no human has ever been possessed.
