Exorcism should not be theater.

In either case they believe this, it is part of their cultural narrative, so perhaps it is not theater but an actual break in the person's personality causing him to act out.

And since it is part of their cultural narrative I don't think making fun of them or saying they are wrong is a very sophisticated way to discuss this issue. I still oppose making a spectacle of it all.

Eh? Who's doing that? I said nothing, merely posted the video, which is interesting.

Exorcism shouldn't be an excuse to claim that ones problems or vices are created things by a fictional being.

It is quackery, it serves no other purpose than to fuel delusional beliefs.

I suppose mocking the World Wrestling Federation would also be 'unsophisticated', but that aint gonna stop me.

Except in this case the actors might actually believe the roles they play. It becomes modern mythology, a part of the psyche, a bit bigger than your average con.

Where did I imply they didn't? A charlatan doesn't necessarily mean a con artist, just someone peddling foolishness as knowledge.

I think Brian needs to rethink his vocation, he is not a very good actor.

We just can't redefine words on a whim. Charlatan as a word has a very specific context of fraud coupled with profit.

He is still gay. The only thing being Exorcised is his own will. Now he will have to remain in the closet and will think anytime he has sexual thoughts that a demon has returned.

Poor man. I I felt sick watching what was being done to him.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "
Bruce Lee-

Maybe you better get your facts straight then?

http://dictionary.re...rowse/charlatan
a person who pretends or claims to have more knowledge or skill than he or she possesses; quack.

Edit: A fraud or con artist is a charlatan, but not all charlatans are con artists.

I don't have much respect for television evangelists.  They are always wanting money.

Geez. So much hair splitting it's a wonder we don't all have split ends.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde
