The Daily Mail(1) is reporting that Pope Benedict has ordered his bishops to set up special exorcism squads to deal with growing worldwide interest in Satanism. The plan was revealed to the online Catholic news service Petrus by Vatican "exorcistinchief" Father Gabriele Amorth. The Vatican quickly denied the report on Friday, according to UPI(2). "Pope Benedict XVI has no intention of ordering local bishops to bring in garrisons of exorcists to fight demonic possession," Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi told reporters.
