Veteran Rome exorcist sees devil's influence in attacks on Pontiff
April 01, 2010
Father Gabriele Amorth, the longtime exorcist of the Rome diocese, has said that Satan's influence is behind the recent spate of media attacks on Pope Benedict XVI for his handling of sex-abuse cases. "There is no doubt about it," Father Amoth said; "it is clear that the devil wants to grab hold of him."
Father Amorth raised eyebrows earlier this month by saying that demonic influence is widespread even inside the Vatican.

When people say there is no Satan, that makes him so happy. Can you imagine someone who voted for a man who advocated killing babies that survived abortion and yet tries to castigates the Church. If that isn't Satanic, I don't know what is. Apparently, when he gets them into his domain, they will learn, but too late. Those people on their deathbed will be hell on earth. Well, we all make choices.
