The devil, demons and magic are big in the Roman Catholic Church. Always have been.
That's why the RC Church "authorizes" certain priestly types to conduct rituals which, through the use of magic, will exorcise the devil and demons from people an places.
One such authoritzed exorcist is Father Thomas Euteneuer, president of an outfit called "Human Life International." According to an article in The Bulletin, Father Euteneuer "is an exorcist authorized to perform exorcisms in several states."
The Rev. Euteneuer was a speaker at a recent luncheon of In His Sign Network (IHS). Some of the folks attending brought salt with them so that Father could bless them to ward off demons. Which he did.
Father Euteneuer believes that the devil is behind and in and through the "abortion industry." I wonder if the abortion industry is anything like the magic religion industry? Anyway, Father Euteneuer told The Bulletin:
"Abortion is a demonic industry. Abortion is blood sacrifice of innocent blood to the devil. The clinics are like temples, the doctors are like priests, the medical table is their altar. It's a ritualized sacrifice. They have a dogma called choice, a hierarchy called Planned Parenthood, and guardian angels in the form of police guards that will arrest you if you try to stop them."
Wait. Father also said that some abortionists have called abortion their "sacrament."
[I think that's bullshit!]
Would a priest lie? You betcha!
How to deal with this terrible demonic industry which is just like the Catholic Church except for the object of its affections?
'Tis a spiritual evil, says Father Euteneuer, so we gotta pray. We can't fight the devil by political means alone, we've gotta use our spiritual weapons. Pray, pray, pray ... "you need a massive amount of prayer."
Yup. And lots of magic.
