    We the meek are a whole we will always share from one another. Yet demons only exist in our psyche...

        If you have religion, you are most to attract demonic thoughts. And many religious people think non believer are already own by demons. They sure got you coming and going, don't they.

          I found a study once, I don't remember where, that said Protestants claimed more demon possession than any other group.  How much was real or imagined, I don't know. But I am sure some is due to people having mental illnesses.
          Exorcism in the Protestant religions, is known as "casting out demons", who have been known to preform the act of the alleged exorcisms in front of the congregation, even children. They lay hands on the person, and yell out to the demon "I command you to come out, in the name of Jesus, and after a few more words are shouted at the Devil, it is over. They feel this is so powerful that it works the first time in most cases.
          It's hard to believe they would do this during a regular service, in front of the children. The minister at times, explains to the people, that they need to "plead the Blood of Jesus", so the demon(s) won't enter them.
          To me, this is extreme abuse of our children

    Ever seen a person you would describe as "possessed?"  Yup, I have.  And it wasn't in church.  Gives ya chills when the demon surfaces.

    Ever seen a person with the ability to "exorcise" a demon?  Nope, I haven't, but God might step in on occasion.

    Ever wonder why the "exorcists" don't visit the hospital and hospices and other uncontrolled settings?

      How many exorcists do we have in the US? According to Father Thomas, there are probably two dozen.

      There are more suicide deaths than murder, terrorist and wars combined. Could it it not be that exorcists is just a suicide attempt. The source of evil or problem come from the mind; go to the source of the problem -your mind, in order to solve it

      You never see people flying around or really looking as ugly like in the exorcist movie. Your DEVIL who is staying inside, try putting them to Stay Outside, for building inside are 10 time more toxics than outside. There are bishops who“ think that exorcism can resolve by them ... The hierarchy don't want it going on outside the official channels. Because delusion for control can be create by praising Hero pastor, for saving the person from demons.  It starts with a misunderstanding of what kind of mental illness at the hospital.

        to the extreme, and downs syndrome people, and they have the appearance of someone possessed, but they aren't
        What do you think about them "allegedly casting out demons" in front of the children?

            Yes I guess it is, because mental illness is passed down, but I think some people just think they are possessed, but of course, aren't really

    Nope, mental illness is not a catch-all. 

    There are the mentally ill and there are the demon possessed.  However, to admit there are demon possessed people is to admit there is a spiritual world to deal with also.  Therefore, demon possession is a myth that can be corrected with "prosac" and others.

      If you chemically disable the vehicle, even the demon cannot operate it properly, which may give the illusion of "treating" the possession.

    We're spirits driving machines which allow us to interact with the physical world. 
    Mental illness has to do with a damaged vehicle, if you will, where as demon possession is akin to a car-jacking.

      In order for you to be possessed, you must give your whole soul (everything personal) to your person God. The adversary of that particular God is Satan or demon.  Your demon is through your choice of your personal god , no one else.  Back on earth your personal choice of slavery, is through Banker/Government debt prison as our debt will never be paid in your lifetime. Welcome to hell on earth too. We are being delusion by our mastering pretending to be your servant.  In your bible language “wolves in sheep clothing” how did man come from sheep and return back to sheep?

      The car jacker either wanted some false freedom, or some means of support toward his controllable debt to his masters. People are basically good, and their freedom is their abilities control themselves from delusional mind
