The Light Side vs. The Dark Side

Cartoons are wonderful venues for religious satire.   One of the best is Slap Upside the Head by “Mark,”  a 28-year-old Canadian.

Mark’s August 20th post was about a story reported by LifeSite,   conservative  website that oozes sex in the same type of sensational reporting  as the average supermarket tabloid.

One of their recent stories had all the elements guaranteed to whip their readers up into a frenzy: sexual perversion and demonic possession!

The article quoted an English Roman Catholic priest who is also a self-styled exorcist.   He completed a 4 month course of training offered at the Vatican (details were a little fuzzy).

“Promiscuity, as well as homosexuality and pornography, says 73 year old Fr. Jeremy Davis, is a form of sexual perversion and can lead to demonic possession. Offering what may be an explanation for the explosion of homosexuality in recent years, Fr. Davis said, ‘Among the causes of homosexuality is a contagious demonic factor.'”

“Fr. Davis’ comments come in conjunction with the publication of his new book, Exorcism: Understanding Exorcism in Scripture and Practice published earlier this year by the Catholic Truth Society (CTS).”

“He also said that Satan is responsible for having blinded most secular humanists to the   ‘dehumanising effects of contraception and abortion and IVF, of homosexual ‘marriages’, of human cloning and the vivisection of human embryos in scientific research.”  

“Fr. Davis also warns in his book against so-called New Age and occult practices, as well as trendy exercise and ‘spiritual healing’ regimens derived from eastern religions.”

“‘The thin end of the wedge (soft drugs, yoga for relaxation, horoscopes just for fun and so on) is more dangerous than the thick end because it is more deceptive–an evil spirit tries to make his entry as unobtrusively as possible.'”
