Demand for exorcisms rising ‘exponentially’ in Ireland, priest warns
Ireland urgently needs more exorcists to deal with rising cases of demonic possession and other evil phenomena, a priest has said.
Fr Pat Collins, a leading exorcist, said he was “baffled” Church leaders were not taking action as more people claim to be victims of demonic activity.
“It’s only in recent years that the demand has risen exponentially,” Fr Collins told the Irish Catholic. “What I’m finding out desperately, is people who in their own minds believe – rightly or wrongly – that they’re afflicted by an evil spirit.”
“I think in many cases they wrongly think it, but when they turn to the Church, the Church doesn’t know what to do with them and they refer them on either to a psychologist or to somebody that they’ve heard of that is interested in this form of ministry, and they do fall between the cracks and often are not helped.”
The arc of the moral universe bends towards chaos.
People who believe God or History are on their side provide the chaos.

Probably caused by an influx of migratory snakes.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Tell him about the twinkie.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

No! Not the twinkie! If they can't handle demons or snakes, there's no way in hell they'll be able to take the twinkie.

Well, they do have a half life of 500,000 years.
Perfect for encapsulating nukular waste.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
