In one of her routines, Kathy Griffin says: "The Catholics will fuck you up worse than heroin." How prescient of her. More than 90% of the world's problems throughout history can be traced directly to religion, and most of those to the catholics (though the Muslims are doing what they can to even out the balance). The fact that they and their non-Catholic ilk continue to do business is the surest proof that there is no god. Were there such a diety, s/he would never allow such disgraceful behaviour in his/her name and would have interceded centuries ago.

But an exorcism?? How can this guy be an "expert" in something that has no plausible basis? Since the devil is also a mythical construct, it is impossible to kick him/her out of anyplace. Thus, no exorcism.

These people, and all those who support and follow them, are idiots. We should take the concentration camps the conservatives were pushing for to hold all the gays in the latter part of the 20th century and fill them with catholics. And muslims and every other religion that advocates the suffering of groups they don't like. Then lock the gates and walk away. Eventually they will all have killed or eaten each other and the world will be a better place.

QED.

And people often wonder why I am so anti-Catholic.

Well, this is certainly a good example.

What the what? What is this supposed to DO, exactly? Turn the law back? Let God know who the people were that opposed it? Doesn't he ALREADY know that? Are they worried that they'll suffer his punishment along with the "sinners", due to his inconsolable wrath (and terrible aim)?

For that matter, why did God put the administration of marriage into the hands of the state in the FIRST place? Didn't he see this coming? If he omnisciently put the administration of marriage into the hands of the state, and he doesn't like what they did with it, then he has only himself to blame.

If only ONE person comes to the realization that this is all nonsense, then the exorcism will be worth it.

Hello, this is Satan speaking: Do you Xtians really think I have time to entice every jurisdiction on earth to legalize same sex marriage? Hell is full of souls and I have to punish all of them. There are only so many hours in a day, even when it is beyond time and space.

Why don't a contingent of GLBT people from Illinois go to his cathedral and spit pea soup at him?

The bible also COMMANDS Christians to OBEY civil law. And this was written at a time when Christians lived under a brutal Roman dictatorship, NOT a democracy like we have.

The Roman Catholic Church does NOT believe in, respect, nor support the U.S. constitution, including the protection of Freedom Of Religion.

THIS is why the Roman Catholic Church is ANTI-AMERICAN.

Apparently these people have no sense of shame ( if they ever did !) ; desperation in the face of defeat has become the norm with them and they now depend on the approval of the lowest of the low . Exorcisms had become an embarrassment to them long ago ; but they clearly have no other resources left to impress the ignorant with .

I do agree on that last, for certain, bnut "Protestant" is just Pharisee Lite (except when they get the bit of power in their teeth, of course).

I'll never understand why ANY LGBT person remains, and\or wants to be, a Roman Catholic. I know there are many Roman Catholic LGBT people, but it makes no sense to me.

That bishop is in for a brow-beating, but it's just a political stunt to begin to galvanize support for 2014-16. They want a place at the political table again.

Lessee ... the pedophile scandal is getting a bit old, and the political finance stuff is working it's way through the Courts, so what's next on their list of hypocrisies that we can bring to light ... hmmm ... perhaps we should start to take a look at Real Estate holdings and interlocking directorships of RC-related corporations and organizations.
