You atheistic heathen meanies want to grab all (even the 90+) virgins, eh?

The course I alluded to ended happily:
Crux wrote:ROME — Citing what organizers describe as a culture saturated with “sexy young vampires” that trivialize evil, New Age spirituality, and a burgeoning interest in the occult and Tarot cards, a fabled Roman course held in mid-April aimed to boost the number of Catholic priests trained every year to perform exorcisms.

The annual week-long course on “Exorcism and Prayers of Liberation,” offered by an institute for priests linked to the Legionaries of Christ religious order and sponsored by Vatican’s Congregation for the Clergy, concluded on Saturday.

More than 170 priests from more than 30 countries traveled to Rome to learn about this centuries-old rite, often “misrepresented” in Hollywood movies: Making evil sexy for teenagers, course organizers say, films about exorcism usually go too far.

Hollywood misrepresenting hell, the mind boggles! :o

Police in Masaka have arrested three people in connection with the killing of a primary school pupil. The suspects are reported to have beaten the girl to death in a ritual meant to exorcise demons out of her. The girls beating was ordered by a witch-doctor.

Violence and abortion reminiscent of human sacrifices cast out by Our Lady of Guadalupe

At noon on May 20, behind closed doors in the Cathedral of San Luis Potosí, a unique event in the modern history of Mexico took place. Headed by Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, Archbishop Emeritus of Guadalajara, and guided by the famous Spanish priest and exorcist Fr. José Antonio Fortea, a group of priests performed a “Great Exorcism." This rite is intended to be used to exorcise a diocese or a country.

In his book The Great Exorcism, Fr. José Antonio Fortea explains this ritual step by step. He writes that this ceremony “drives away demons” and “is useful in situations in which great violence has been unleashed in a country.”

Mexico suffers from a growing wave of violence, and according to official numbers, approximately one hundred thousand abortions have been performed just in the capital since abortion was legalized in 2007.
[…]
The Mexican archbishop indicated that this rite “prays, for example, about the problem of divorce and of abortion, which often are favored by inhuman laws, laws that go against nature itself.”

Certainly the most urgent violence problem in Mexico.
