Exorcist calls for rules to be relaxed

Father Gabriele Amorth claims to have personally rid the world of more than 160,000 demons.

Head of the International Association of Exorcists, Father Amorth has called for a change in the rules so that all priests can perform exorcisms without first requiring permission from their bishop. The call came following the claim that Pope Francis performed an exorcism on camera last week which was later denied by the Vatican.

"Today, unfortunately, bishops don't appoint sufficient exorcists. We need many more," said Father Amorth. "I hope that Rome will send out directives to bishops around the world calling on them to appoint more exorcists."

"The Catholic Church's leading 'exorcist' is calling for all priests to be allowed to conduct the ritual after Pope Francis apparently performed one in St Peter's Square last week."

Assuming one demon possesses one individual, you would have to do 20 exorcisms a day every single day for over 21 years to have 160,000 under your belt.

why is it I never hear about exorcism's now days "similar to the movies" its just small hauntings and objects been moved and a slight touch. Nothing to sinister anymore, makes me think that all the old cases were fake.. I would love to hear your cases on exorcisms

Why don't they just bring back "burning at the stake" too, for people who are deemed witches? This whole exorcism thing just breeds superstition and paranoia - fear - in the world [which was/is probably the whole aim of the Church in the first place, to be honest. Easier to convert people, you see]. Frankly, it goes down a quite dangerous path. Ban it, once and for all.
