      Catholic bishop will do mass exorcism over city

      https://www.foxnews.com/world/city-w...holic-exorcism

      "After the brutal murder of a 10-year-old girl in a port city in Colombia, Monsignor Rubén Darío Jaramillo Montoya, the bishop of Buenaventura, announced he will perform a mass exorcism over the city beset with violence, drug smuggling, and poverty this weekend, The Guardian reported."

      What do you think about this? Do you think holy water alone is going to save them?

      It sounds like the kind of silliness more associated with the uber charismatic nutjobs who think they can simply declare curses to be broken.

      Even if he does drive out demons (which is itself unlikely), Jesus was pretty clear about what happens after the demon wanders the wild places and returns. So this scheme seems ineffective at best and counterproductive at worst.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      I’d rather see a call to mass repentance and prayer.
