Ok, we will need to file this one under … Really, ya don’t say and as the Gateway Pundit put it, now tell us something we don’t already know.
Father Gabriele Amorth, a noted Italian exorcist states that the Devil is working behind the scenes within the state run media. The well timed 50 year old case was designed to take place during Holy week, that was no coincidence. It was designed to cause damage to the Pope and the Catholic Church during the most holiest of Christian weeks, the crucifixion and rising of Christ.
According to a leading exorcist said the devil that made the media do it and who was behind the Holy Week attacks.
Noted Italian exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth, commented this week that the recent defamatory reporting on Pope Benedict XVI, especially by the New York Times, was “prompted by the devil.”
Speaking to News Mediaset in Italy, the 85-year-old exorcist noted that the devil is behind “the recent attacks on Pope Benedict XVI regarding some pedophilia cases.”
“There is no doubt about it. Because he is a marvelous Pope and worthy successor to John Paul II, it is clear that the devil wants to ‘grab hold’ of him.”
Father Amorth added that in instances of sexual abuse committed by some members of the clergy, the devil “uses” priests in order to cast blame upon the entire Church: “The devil wants the death of the Church because she is the mother of all the saints.”
“He combats the Church through the men of the Church, but he can do nothing to the Church.”
The exorcist went on to note that Satan tempts holy men, “and so we should not be surprised if priests too … fall into temptation. They also live in the world and can fall like men of the world.”
Granted, we are against those that would exploit children and pedophilia priests; however, we also know a well timed and convenient hit piece against Christianity. We are still waiting for the news article from the NY Times on similar type actions within Islam.
One thing is for certain, the Italian Exorcist just might be spot on in his analysis regarding state run media.
