The Exorcist; The Story Behind It & Possession in Children

Spread the love

On today's episode, we talk about the true story that the classic film, The Exorcist, was based on. We're gonna follow it up with real life examples of possession and exorcism recorded in children from the late 1800's through to our present day.

What is disheartening are the extreme lengths to which frightened, superstitious people will go, to rid their young of a perceived demonic presence. It's obvious – it ain't right.

And it ain't necessary.
