Recently accounts of rising numbers of exorcisms have appeared in media and governmental inquiries. In the midst of this, the International Association of Exorcists, a sanctioned body of the Roman Catholic Church, has released a new set of guidelines for exorcists.
BROOKLYN, N.Y. — The Catland bookstore that hosted the Oct. 20 hex action against Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh found itself the target for an exorcism. According to reports, Father Gary Thomas, the exorcist for the Catholic Diocese of San Jose, California, scheduled two masses prior to the hex event in order to stop it. Father Thomas told The National Catholic Register “that he has witnessed people in the satanic world becoming bolder.” He said that the more confident these so-called Satanists become, the more “the general public will be more accepting of the demonic.”
