Now the Chief Exorcist of the Catholic Church says Vatican City and the upper echelons of the Catholic Church is ripe with demons! More of my thoughts on this topic follow this UK Press release:
The Devil is living in the Vatican, says the Pope's chief exorcist

CHILD sex scandals rocking the Catholic Church are proof of the Devil living in the Vatican, the Pope's chief exorcist claims.
Father Gabriel Amorth, 84, who has carried out more than 70,000 exorcisms in 50 years, said that Pope Benedict "fully agreed" with him in "casting out evil".
In the last few months, the Catholic Church have been rocked by a series of sex scandals in Ireland, Holland and, most recently, Germany.
Even the Pope's brother, Father Georg Ratzinger, has admitted he hit choir boys.
Italian priest Fr Amorth said: "His Holiness fully believes in casting out evil.
"The Devil lives in the Vatican. Naturally it's difficult to find proof but the true consequences are visible.
"We have cardinals who don't believe in Christ, bishops connected with demons.
"Then we have these stories of paedophilia. You can see the rot when we speak of Satan's smoke in the holy rooms of the Vatican."
Fr Amorth was speaking yesterday during the launch of Memoirs Of An Exorcist, written by Italian journalist Marco Tosatti.
Fr Amorth, the basis for the priest in hit horror movie The Exorcist, said he had "six or seven assistants" to help him hold down possessed people while carrying out exorcisms.
He thinks the 1981 attempt on the life of the late Pope John Paul II and the recent attack on Benedict were the work of the Devil.
He also criticised JK Rowling books, saying: "Behind Harry Potter hides the signature of the king of the darkness."
I discussed the absolute evil of the Harry Potter books and movies when they began emerging from the Pits of Hell. Now Universal Studios Orlando is announcing the Harry Potter Theme Park! If you have ANY love for your children do not bring them into this Hellish zone! Seriously!
I completely agree with Father Amorth on this!
Harry Potter is different. It is EVIL and countless children who have been exposed to this series have been oppressed and in some case possessed while reading the books or watching these movies. They are EVIL. Now the evil will be placed at Universal Studios Orlando!
So serious has the problem of demonic activities become that Bishops of the Catholic Church established the International Association of Exorcists in 1993. This association was established by the world-famous exorcist of Rome, Father Gabriele Amorth and Father Jeremy Davies. Demonic activity is epidemic today. That's the point.
Now the Chief Exorcist of the Catholic Church is speaking out publicly about the clear and present danger of demonic activities including possession. As of the year 2000 there were over two hundred Bishop authorized Catholic priest/exorcists. There are also hundreds if not thousands of Protestant exorcists and others. I have witnessed and/or participated in scores if not more over the past 40 years.
70,000 Exorcisms in 50 years by One Priest Alone
Father Gabriel Amorth alone has overseen more than 70,000 exorcisms in 50 years of this ministry. Consider this: before performing the Catholic Rite of Exorcism the Catholic Church requires its priests to pass very specific qualifications for their clients. The person must undergo standard medical and mental health professional examinations first in order to rule out "natural causes" for the symptoms. Then the priest must convince a Catholic Bishop that an exorcism is called for and a doctor must be present during the rite
-- And still 70,000 exorcisms in 50 years by this one exorcist alone.
I Timothy 4:1,2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
