Huh? Huh? Huh?

Oh, don't you just admire how the priest isn't overwhelmingly Catholic, but rather more of a pragmatist and how the doctor can perform her duties without letting her Catholicism influence her?

Eh, I'm not sure if the best defense against possession can be said to be anything but the Catholic faith.  Any old faith ain't gonna cut it padre. 

I would not want this man exorcising me.

I don't leave my faith at the door when I come to work.

Maybe we should pray for them.

Everybody makes fun of Catholics...until they need an exorcism.
I remember that story of a prot mother who went to a pastor asking him for the deliverance of his son who looked to be possessed.
The pastor advised her to go to a catholic priest saying that his prayers would be unefficient in that case.

That happens all over the country, all the time.  It's funny that Prots don't put 2 and 2 together.
They do, Walty. They just refuse to read the number as anything but 6 3/4. While there are those who do not know the truth, there are those who will refuse to accept it. Like another said, pray for them.

My prot friend always does this. When we discuss demonic stuff he always mentions holy water/crucifixes/priests/exorcism in a positive light. But the rest if the time he criticizes them. He just doesn't get it...
