Decline of religious belief means we need more exorcists, say Catholics

The decline of religious belief in the West and the growth of secularism has “opened the window” to black magic, Satanism and belief in the occult, the organisers of a conference on exorcism have said.

The six-day meeting in Rome aims to train about 200 Roman Catholic priests from more than 30 countries in how to cast out evil from people who believe themselves to be in thrall to the Devil.

These predate Christianity.
"Prior to Christianity, many pagans believed in "fairies" - who were lesser-gods or spirits of nature, as Christianity spread the idea of these lesser-gods and spirits were not in line with the strictly monothestic Abrahamic religions and thus the Fairies were either declared to be angels, figments of the imagination or evil spirits that existed to lead people astray. Like Baal and Pazuzu before them the Fairies suffered a degeneration from lesser-gods and spirits to demons, though some particularly malevolent Fairies (such as Redcaps) were always considered demons, even in pre-Christian societies (though they went by different names and appearances)."
I'm not so certain we understand the true nature of these things, but they appear to exist somewhere between life and death and feed off our fear. They are anything but benevolent and, unlike ghosts, can inflict physical harm, normally in the form of 3 deep scratches, all the way to documented instances of unexplained death.
It's a subject that has far more questions than answers.

I thought religion was based on the threat of evil and promise of hell. Ergo, religion most certainly believes in the devil coffeetime.gif

Religions have done nothing to stop these lower entities that have been around far longer than religion, so... Someone ain't doing it right. 13.gif
