New Mag for Exorcists

In Polen haben sie grade ein neues Monatsmagazin für den Exorzisten von heute an den Start gebracht. Das Ding heisst Miesięcznik Egzorcysta (Monatlicher Exorzist oder besser: The Monthly Exorcist), ein Jahresabo kostet 100 Złoty (24,50 Euro) und in der ersten Ausgabe geht's um Briefe von Toten, den verlorenen Glauben an den Teufel und die Nichtverhandlungstaktik bei Dämonenbefall. Lustigerweise hat Polens Chef-Exorzist dem Kapitalismus die Schuld für den Anstieg der Exorzismen in die Schuhe geschoben.

"The rise in the number or exorcists from four to more than 120 over the course of 15 years in Poland is telling," Father Aleksander Posacki, a professor of philosophy, theology and leading demonologist and exorcist told reporters in Warsaw at the Monday launch of the Egzorcysta monthly.

Ironically, he attributed the rise in demonic possessions in what remains one of Europe's most devoutly Catholic nations partly to the switch from atheist communism to free market capitalism in 1989. "It's indirectly due to changes in the system: capitalism creates more opportunities to do business in the area of occultism. Fortune telling has even been categorised as employment for taxation," Posacki told AFP.

"If people can make money out of it, naturally it grows and its spiritual harm grows too," he said, hastening to add authentic exorcism is absolutely free of charge.
