The Power of Christ Compels You

Very interesting case out of Texas, via dotCommonweal blog.

All of the exorcisms you see on TV and in movies are Catholic exorcisms, because Catholic exorcisms make for good theatre--the Old Priest, the Young Priest, Latin, Holy Water, etc.  But most of the exorcisms (or, for the cynical, purported exorcisms) that occur in the U.S. are done by Pentecostal churches.   

The video below is of a Pentecostal exorcism in a Spanish-speaking church (not sure the location)

The lawyer in me sees massive opportunities for liability in that video. 

I haven't read the Texas case--I hope to do so soon and update.
