Exorcisms, Demons & Spirits

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - October 18, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: Christina McKenna, Sherry Jackson, David M. Kiely

Authors David M. Kiely & Christina McKenna spoke about their new book The Dark Sacrament, which documents ten contemporary cases of possession and exorcism, and the work of two elderly exorcists Canon William Lendrum, and Father Ignatius McCarthy.

There are two different sources for oppression and possession, said Kiely. A deceased spirit can be transformed in the afterlife into an evil force, oppressing the living with its dark thoughts. Then there are demonic entities who have never walked the earth, and are capable of possessing a living person. He also spoke about ancestral evil, in which behaviors such as incest can be passed down into subsequent generations.

McKenna recounted the case of Gary, a boy who came into contact with a demon at the age of 10. He has experienced seizures in which he engages in automatic writing in a foreign language. Now 14, the boy has not been successfully exorcised because he seems to want to keep the demon with him, she said. McKenna also told of a successful exorcism that was performed in her own home when she was 11-- her brother had been the subject of a haunting by a deceased aunt.

US Tax Laws

First hour guest, former IRS examiner Sherry Jackson discussed how she could not find a law that states Americans have to pay federal tax. She stopped filing taxes in 1999 and has been under federal investigation since 2004.
