PZ Myers has a great quote on his blog today. It's part of a post he did about Pope Francis's latest folly: doubling down on exorcism. It seems the new, liberal, sensible pope believes in the debbil! Fun. Apparently Francis brought all the big-time exorcists together so they could share the elite practices of their craft:
During the conference, the Rev. Cesar Truqui, an exorcist based in Switzerland, recounted one experience he had aboard a Swissair flight. “Two lesbians,” he said, had sat behind him on the plane. Soon afterward, he said, he felt Satan’s presence. As he silently sought to repel the evil spirit through prayer, one of the women, he said, began growling demonically and threw chocolates at his head.
Asked how he knew the woman was possessed, he said that “once you hear a Satanic growl, you never forget it. It’s like smelling Margherita pizza for the first time. It’s something you never forget.”Can you imagine the stupidity required to think and say such a thing? The ooze that is the Roman Catholic church is sinking ever deeper into the swamp of superstition. And Pope Francis is cheering the collapse on. So much for hope, me bloggies. The church is lost.
