Exorcism Works!

If killing the possessed person is the objective.  Yet another Christian exorcist procedure ends in tragedy.

Guyana Cops Look Into Teen’s Death After Exorcism

 A 15-year-old girl has died after neighbors and a local pastor tried to treat her convulsions with an exorcism at a church, and Guyanese police said Friday they are investigating.

Sangeeta Persaud began to convulse Sunday as she drank tea for breakfast at her grandmother’s home in Canal Number Two, a farming village west of the capital, Georgetown, the grandmother told The Associated Press.

Chaitranie Ramotar said she became worried and called the girl’s mother, who brought the pastor to the house.

“I experienced the same thing at age 12,” Nankumarie Jaikissoon, the teen’s mother, told the AP. “That is why I did not rush her to the hospital. My heart did not tell me to rush her to the hospital.”

The pastor, Ewart Cummings, said he decided to take the girl to his small, concrete church, where he and several elders spent five hours praying for her as they pressed on her stomach and head. They also made her drink an anointing oil, he told the AP.

At times, the teen would bark and make other strange noises, Cummings said.

“I did nothing wrong,” he said. “I just responded as pastor of the church. … Ungodly people would not understand certain things like driving out spirits.”

No, ungodly people, that respect science and medicine probably won’t understand things like “driving spirits out.”  Can those “spirits” be quantified?  Can they be identified in any way and their pathologies explained?

Police Commander Colin West said results from a preliminary autopsy were inconclusive but an investigation continues. No one has been charged.

Of course not.  The Invisible Sky Being defense trumps logic and law.  Nothing to see here folks.  Move along now.
