Possessed by the Devil!!!
In fact, according to Father Gabriele, the entire Nazi party was possessed!
Glad we've finally got to the bottom of that mystery. All those books and papers offering one tortured psychological explanation after another concerning why Joe and Adolf behaved the way they did, and all along the reason was simple--- the Devil made them do it!
Pope Pius XII, sez Father Gabriele, attempted a long-distance exorcism of Hitler, but failed. (Gosh. I'm so surprised.)
Father Gabriele is the founder of the International Association of Exorcists (which, alas, seems not to have a web presence). In another article, he mentions that the Holy Father has performed no less than three exorcisms personally, and complains mightily that no professional exorcists were consulted when the new ritual on exorcism was written. Maybe he'd better try a long-distance exorcism of the College of Cardinals.
Father Gabriele is also against the Harry Potter books, claiming that behind them "hides the signature of the king of the darkness, the devil."
Hatred of Rowling goes with the territory, I guess. But I wish these people could point to at least a single case of someone led to Satanism by the works of JK Rowling. Just one! That's all I ask.
In the meantime, I'm tempted to conduct a long-distance exorcism my ownself.
"In the name of Reason, in the name of Science, in the name of the Light--- I cast you out! In the name of Franklin, I cast out ignorance! In the name of Darwin, I cast our superstition! In the name of Voltaire, I cast out bigotry!"
So . . . did it work? Or do I need to tinker with the ritual?
