People are gullible
“Inspired by true events”. What the fuck does that even mean? Father Gary Thomas believes that people who practice Wicca, the harmless bullshit so many young women fall for, are corrupted by the devil. Does he have any proof? It’s morons like this guy who remind us all why we’re lucky the church isn’t in control anymore.
This idiot claims about 80% of the people claiming demonic possession have suffered some form of abuse, but he can recognize the “real thing” when he sees it the other 20% of the time. Ah, I guess when you’re using your priest magic and someone gives you the old “crazy eyes”, you know it’s gotta be real!
Exorcisms are dangerous, irresponsible, and traumatic to anyone involved. There are even people who die because of this stupidity. The fact the movie claims to be based on real events makes me shake my head in disbelief. Father Thomas is a scary man who shouldn’t be allowed near anyone who happens to have opaque eyes, let alone have a movie made about him.
