If You Believe in Demons, You Are an Idiot

Posted by Clamence/The Chaplain on November 13, 2010


There is an article in the New York Times titled “For Catholics, Interest in Exorcism Is Revived.” Whenever I do my best to focus on common ground in discussions I have with believers, I get a nice little reminder of the fact that these people are like undeveloped and naive children. It is hard to avoid applying a descriptor like “stupid” or “dumb” to people who willfully choose to ignore the discoveries of psychology to cling to their superstitious beliefs in evil spirits. Reading something like this makes me feel very justified in saying that if you believe in demons, you are an idiot.
