One Believes What One Wants To Believe, 24 February 2015
Author: Dalbert Pringle from New Zealand

When it comes to the likes of exorcisms and demon possessions, there's an old, familiar saying that goes - "One believes what one wants to believe." - And, if you ask me, I think that that particular phrase fits in so very well when it comes to discussing such a topic as the one at hand.

And, on top of that - What I'd really like to know is, why is it that the Catholics are the one religious order who seem to have cornered the market on exorcisms? Eh? Why?

Anyways - In this unbelievably dull & religiously dry documentary concerning the role of the exorcist in the 21st Century, I think that this film's "Vatican-approved" scenario was a total set-up as a means to prove to the doubting viewer that (yes, indeed) Christianity really does wield "holy" power - But, hey, let's face it, folks - It was all hollow and gutless from start to finish.

The Exorcist In the 21st Century presents to the viewer a Colombian woman named Constanza who boldly claims that for the past 15 years she has been demon-possessed. And, let me tell ya - If Constanza really is possessed, she certainly came across as being one of the most non-possessed "possessed" persons that anyone (in their right mind) could ever imagine.

Yes. Constanza did have something that suggested a mild mental disorder, but, unfortunately, she was so totally hell-bent on attaching anti-Christ significance to this dysfunction. (And this was all because she viewed herself as being a very "bad" girl)

Anyhow - For anyone who's interested in watching this documentary, I promise not to spill-the-beans about what all takes place when it comes to the likes of Constanza's affliction.

But, I will say that it really killed me that out of the half-dozen, or so, Catholic priests who were asked what they thought of the 1973 movie The Exorcist, each and every one of them, literally, gushed gleefully over it with holy praise.

Ha! I thought that that was absolutely priceless 'cause, in that very movie, it wasn't the priests uttering religious mumbo-jumbo that drove the demon out of young Regan. No. It was Father Damien beating Regan repeatedly in the face with his big fists that convinced the unclean entity to vamoose out of there, like, pronto!
