Mental illnesses are being called "demonic possession" in 2017

    And people are dying because of it.

    This is serious. Because superstitious Buddhists, Christians, and Muslims still believe in demonic possession and exorcism, curable diseases are being ignored, and the victims are dying because of it.

    Much of what is labelled as demonic possession is simply an illness called Huntingdon's Disease.

    What happens when a mentally ill person is considered possessed? They are viciously beaten until they often die.

    By the way, what is a country with a rising number of exorcists?

    France.

    Why? The African immigrant population in France has gone up. While exorcists were falling in demand in France, the sudden rise in Africans in France has led to Africans asking for exorcism activities from their church. This is causing the Catholic Church in France to increase the number of "exorcist trainings" and "exorcist licenses". Apparently, Third World migration has not only brought new diseases to Europe, but has also caused old superstitions to come back. So much so that even Europeans are being turned back to their old superstitions. It's not the Africans who are becoming European, it is the Europeans who are becoming African. This is madness.

    But it is true, those people are possessed by a demon and only a very brave cleric can get it out.

    Wyrmlord read more about actual exorcism procedures you fool. You always like to jump to conclusions after reading a little bit about something.

    The Catholic Church actually screens extensively for mental disease before classifying a case as one of demonic possession. Only a tiny minority of cases reported to the Church is classified as such.

    Mental diseases can be misdiagnosed as demonic possession, yes. That doesn't mean demonic possession = mental diseases. Basic logic.

    Mental illnesses are being called "gender fluid-ism" in 2017, and being encouraged by allowing (and encouraging) to perform a genital mutilation through a surgical operation.
    And people are dying because of it.

    Fuck off. If the Catholic church still perform exorcisms today, it's a tiny number overall and percentage-wise, and the priests always take care to refer those who desire exorcisms to a psychiatrist first, to make sure it's not just a curable mental illness. The problem with Christians is that they do not perform ENOUGH exorcisms, hence the openly satanic rule of pure evil and abomination everywhere nowadays.

    As usual, Wormshit reads two lines somewhere, doesn't bother doing any research, and then writes a wall of text based on nothing but fantasies and prejudices. When will someone commit a terrorist act at the gay club he frequents, so we can finally be rid of this retarded chimpanzee?

    Even a Buddhist gook knows better than to slander Christians. You are truly the lowest of the low, degenerate Hindu transvestite.

    So nobody else is going to mention that Huntington's isn't a mental disease, I really had to be the one to do that?

    How is it possible to fit so many imbecillic misconceptions into one post?

    Huntington's disease is not a mental disease. It is a well known adult onset genetic disorder caused by a short tandem repeat variation in a single gene, with a dominant inheritance pattern. It manifests as a progressive neurodegenerative disease. It is easy to diagnose, but is lethal and untreatable. It cannot be mistaken for demonic posession.

    Catholic Church doesn't perform exorcisms on the whim and it certainly doesn't perform exorcism on Huntington's patients. It takes multiple negative diagnoses and referrals from physicians and psychiatrists before the case is even considered by the Church. Then, if the investigation concludes that the case is indeed demonic posession, one of very few remaining certified exorcists is tasked to perform the exorcism.

    You take some boogaboo jungle treatments of possession and make sweeping generalisations of all exorcism traditions across the globe. It is definitely not common practice in western nations to "beat the demon out of people" or just straight up murder them. The horror stories are as exceptional as serial killers.

    Strictly speaking, there is no such thing as "mental illness". Every form of mental illness is a consequence of being affected by malicious spectral entities (e.g. anxiety is a result of being attaked by demons of fear). However, many can be driven away safely by psychotherapy, so long as the spectral parasites have not yet deeply merged with one's soul.

    When fear manifests it's when one is unable to face their fears due to internal contradictions. The best psychotherapy sometimes is a change of scenery and people, therapy itself is just a bonus if you got change to spare for it.

    I think it's about time to perform an exorcism on Liberal.

    And by that, I mean ban.

    There is not a single case of possession that exists. Keep thta in mind. All are linked to health. Welcome to the 21st century. Sorry to ruin it for you.

    Just bring back judicial torture - we'l have evidence not only for demonic possessions, but witches and warlocks, demonic and hidden genestealer cults.
    Only judicial torture can crack those hard nuts. Those librul morons are diggin' their own graves by banning it, I'm telling ye.
