I believe in it I think there is a difference between someone being phsyco and someone be possesed mostly you'd know if you were well trianed or well experanced. It's really creepy and the Exorcist was based on a ture story.

Certainly. However, as a Catholic, I am part of a religion which believes its priests have the ability to perform exorcisms, and I respect anyone who does not have a similar belief. As for any other Catholics who are disinclined to believe in exorcism, you might be surprised to find both John Paul II and Benedict XVI have performed exorcisms while Pope.

However, I will say that I expect most exorcisms are not actually useful--for every actual exorcism, there are surely dozens, even hundreds of ordinary mental and physical disorders; however, since exorcisms aren't harmful, just a prayer, usually, I see no problem with someone with a mental disorder wanting an exorcism.

Oh, and to the earlier poster, I believe you are confusing exorcism and excommunication. Excommunication is where a person is removed from the church. (Also, I'm amazed by the number of Catholics in this topic. I wonder if there's some correlation)

I 've heard from pastors about their personal experience of calling out demons in the name of Jesus, but personally I have not done it or met with a situation where I would need to do it.

In fact the bible describe several incidents in which Jesus himself, or his deciples had called out demons, it's noted that different demons require a different kind of treatment, not all demons can be called out some types need prayer and fasting.

^ exactly. That movie was a massive hit, the hype just made people more prepared to believe/hoax....etc. Similar thing with the Amityville Horror.

I freaked-out at this site I viewed and read just now (4:11 in the morning): http://www.phantasmpsiresearch.com/Demonic.htm

It has the creepy exorcism music. X) Trust me. READ and VIEW it between the time of 3 to 4 in the morning.

If I have a website of my own. I'd be sure to add that scary music!♥

Anyway, in my opinion. Exorcism maybe proved wrong (or a mental illness) someday sooner. First-off, technology is growing fast (interactive porn on the Interwebz is the future OMG). Second, many supernatural unexplained things got explained within the 20th and the 21st century thanks to SCIENCE!!! And crap.

Exorcism was first practiced centuries ago right? So isn't it possible that it stated out with someone with a mental illness and because of the lack in medical technology, it would have be easier to point fingers at the devil instead rationally explaining the real cause. Something like this probably caused a panic and people began to notice the "signs", so the church had to intervene because they were a big power back then. I mean mental illness or not, if you were restrained and splashed with "holywater" "freaking out" would have been human nature. Considering how there has been cases where exorcism goes on for hours. Which puts alot of mental strain on those who were "possessed". Btw this is just by theory on how it started (not to be taken too seriously)
