I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

The problem with telling people that there is such a thing as demons is they might believe you.
Then what?

Police: Second woman charged after 2 children killed during attempted exorcism
By Faith Karimi and Joe Sutton, CNN

(CNN) — A second Maryland woman has been charged with murder in connection with the Friday stabbing deaths of two children during an exorcism attempt, authorities said.

Two children died of multiple stab wounds and two others are hospitalized with undisclosed injuries, police said.

Monifa Denise Sanford, 21, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder, Montgomery County Police said.

Earlier, authorities announced that the children’s mother, Zakieya L. Avery, 28, also faces the same charges. Police said Saturday that Avery stabbed two of her children to death and wounded two others while attempting an exorcism.

Norell Harris, 1, and his sister, Zyana Harris, 2, suffered fatal stab wounds while their siblings, who are 5 and 8, were hospitalized, authorities said.

“Investigators have learned that the two defendants believed that they were performing an exorcism. The investigation into this motive and other aspects of the crime continue at this point,” police said.

Unfortunately for these children, their guardians were ignorant enough to believe they were doing right.

The Bible teaches that demons are evil and fallen. They are evil in that they oppose God who is good and love and they are fallen in that they once held a more lofty position yet were punished due to their rebellion.

Job 4:18, “Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly.” (KJV)

Matthew 25:41, “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” (KJV)

And then the church promotes the idea of exorcisms by offering it as a service and employing people to perform that service.

Well there are always going to be DIYers. The church is as complicit in the deaths of these 2 children and the injuries and psychological damage suffered by the surviving children just as much as the ignorant women who committed these crimes. Of course the church has a long history of sidestepping its culpability and responsibility so I am certain none of those who perpetrate crimes like these on society as a whole will suffer a moments unease over it.

    Blaming the church or religion for the actions of a couple of nut jobs is like blaming satan for any diabolical acts…but wait, that second statement is true…

  • Nyarlathotep

    Its religion and church who put the idea of demons possessing people in their heads in the first place.

  • Arclight

    Bullshit. Its just another worthless excuse like the ones of countless other murderers…You are another hypocrite who is quick to blame Christianity for anything you can even vaguely form a nexus to…

  • IThinkso

    Inference is dependent, primarily on the intention, and can also be the part of a satanic ritual.

    I would say the church definitely holds some accountability. Not related, but have you seen the documentary “Jesus Camp?” Poor kids are brainwashed, say they will stand up and fight wars for Jesus. That is bloodshed we are talking about. These kids are all under 13. It’s disgusting.

    I agree, radicalizing the young is egregious. But your escalating it to another level, similar to Jihad, the same method utilized to brainwash terrorists. I doubt the assailants in this case were ever enrolled in demon exorcism classes at the local community college…

    I get tired of those who make excuses for murders. They blame everything from the church, Allah, satan, UFOs, their childhood…might want to start with the perpetrator. I do believe secular society does not want to acknowledge that evil exists in the world and pass off those who commit diabolical acts as psychologically unstable (Christians included) and not responsible for their actions.

    I doubt most of the Christian critical commentators have never seen the inside of a church, at most, once a year and have never stared evil in the face. Until you do, you’ll be as naive as the rest…
