Former Vatican exorcist: Yoga and Harry Potter are Satanic

CORKY SIEMASZKO
Tuesday, November 29, 2011

The Vatican’s former chief exorcist says yoga and Harry Potter are tools of the devil.


“Practicing yoga is Satanic, it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter,” Father Gabriele Amorth said this week.


Those seemingly “innocuous” Potter books convince kids to believe in black magic, he said.


“In Harry Potter the Devil acts in a crafty and covert manner, under the guise of extraordinary powers, magic spells and curses,” said Amorth.


As for yoga, it leads to Hinduism and “all eastern religions are based on a false belief in reincarnation,” the 86-year-old priest said.

He's an exorcist. Perhaps he's just trying to drum up some work.

That's more like it...

In fact, the very first line in Wiki is VERY "un-Vatican-like"...

Quote:
Gabriele Amorth (born 1 May 1925) is an Italian Roman Catholic priest and an exorcist of the Diocese of Rome who claims to have cleansed tens of thousands of people of evil spirits.
This is self-aggrandizing BS...and something the Vatican would NEVER stand for...

I haven't found any stats on how many exorcisms are officially done by the Catholic church in total, but I DID find this story in Salt Lake City's local newspaper...

Quote:
Lampert said exorcisms are rare, and that he's performed just three since completing his training in Rome in 2006, even though he said he's counseled hundreds of people who believed they might have been possessed. All prospective subjects go through counseling with a psychologist, he said.
That's MUCH more realistic...

Didn't an evangelical closer to home say Yoga was evil recently? I tried to find it but couldn't.

Someone? Anyone?

Whatever. He's 86 years old. He's lived long enough to earn the right to say silly things every now and again.

How many other priests in their 80's are also exorcists? When they die off, will there be any of them left? I'll bet the younger priests have no interest in exorcism.
