The Vatican’s top exorcist has spoken out in condemnation of yoga and fantasy novels, branding them as “Satanic” acts that lead to “demonic possession”.
Father Cesare Truqui has warned that the Catholic Church has seen a recent spike in worldwide reports of people becoming possessed by demons and that the reason for the sudden uptick is the rise in popularity of pastimes such as watching Harry Potter movies and practicing Vinyasa.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giuseppe_Ferrari who has recently attended a meeting in Rome where Catholic authorities and delegates discussed how to deal with this alleged demonic possession crisis, says that the Vatican has declared that shows that “glorify wizards”, and activities such as yoga, “summon satanic spirits”.
The Catholic Church also ruled that watching TV shows like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries that contain “demonic characters” who are portrayed as beautiful human beings with desirable characteristics and superpowers, may lure the unsuspecting into dabbling in the occult which could lead to “sinful deeds” such as harming a child.
Monsignor Luigi Negri, the archbishop of Ferrara-Comacchio, who also attended the Vatican crisis meeting, claimed that homosexuality is “another sign” that “Satan is in the Vatican”.
The Independent reports: Father Cesare says he’s seen many an individual speaking in tongues and exhibiting unearthly strength, two attributes that his religion says indicate the possibility of evil spirits inhabiting a person’s body. “There are those who try to turn people into vampires and make them drink other people’s blood, or encourage them to have special sexual relations to obtain special powers,” stated Professor Ferrari at the meeting. “These groups are attracted by the so-called beautiful young vampires that we’ve seen so much of in recent years.”
Is yoga about worshiping Hindu gods, or is it about engaging in advanced stretching and exercise?
