His body went limp and his mouth dropped open.<br /> <br /> "Exorcists who have seen the footage have no doubt – this was a prayer for liberation from Evil, an actual exorcism," said TV2000, which is owned by the Italian Bishops Conference.<br /> <br /> The station gathered a panel of clergy specialising in exorcisms who scrutinised the footage and concluded that the pope had performed an exorcism.<br /> <br /> The Vatican downplayed the incident, although it used ambiguous language that did not deny altogether that Francis had tried to rid the man of evil.<br /> <br /> "The Holy Father did not intend to carry out any exorcism," said Father Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman.<br /> <br /> "Instead, as he often does for sick and suffering people, he simply intended to pray for a person who was presented to him."<br /> <br /> Leading exorcists insisted that the Pope had indeed taken on the forces of evil.<br /> <br /> "The Pope is also the Bishop of Rome, and like any bishop he is also an exorcist," Father Gabriele Amorth, the Catholic Church's best known exorcist and the head of the International Association of Exorcists, told La Repubblica newspaper.<br /> <br /> "It was a real exorcism," he said. "If the Vatican has denied this, it shows that they understand nothing", said Father Amorth who claimed that the Mexican was "possessed by four demons".<br /> <br /> The Rev. Giulio Maspero, a Rome-based systematic theologian who has witnessed or participated in more than a dozen exorcisms, said he was certain that Francis' prayer on Sunday was either a full-fledged exorcism or a prayer to "liberate" the young man from a demonic possession. He noted that the placement of the pope's hands on the man's head was the "typical position" for an exorcist to use.<br /> <br /> "When you witness something like that - for me it was shocking - I could feel the power of prayer," he said in a phone interview, speaking of his own experiences.<br /> <br /> Fr Maspero said it was particularly symbolic that Francis' purported exorcism occurred on Pentecost, an important feast day for the church when the faithful believe Jesus' apostles received the fullness of the Holy Spirit.<br /> <br /> "The Holy Spirit is connected to the exorcism because ... it is the manifestation of how God is present among us and in our world," he said.<br /> <br /> There was now, more than ever, a need for exorcists to combat people possessed by "sorcerers" and "Satanists", Father Amorth said.<br /> <br /> "We live in an age in which God has been forgotten. And wherever God is not present, the Devil reigns."<br /> <br /> He acknowledged that many people, even Catholics, regarded exorcism as mumbo-jumbo but insisted they were mistaken. "Those who don't believe should read the Gospels. Jesus continually performed exorcisms.<br /> <br /> "Today, unfortunately, bishops appoint too few exorcists. We need many more. I hope that Rome will send out directives to bishops around the world calling on them to appoint more exorcists."<br /> <br /> He said John Paul II had carried out many exorcisms during his pontificate, but that Benedict XVI had not performed any, instead leaving it to bishops and priests.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/the-pope/10070991/Pope-Francis-performs-first-exorcism.html">http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/the-pope/10070991/Pope-Francis-performs-first-exorcism.html</a> Instead, What Yahweh Says Is... tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2012-06-07:2182797:Video:1974962 2012-06-07T21:39:19.079Z George hawkins http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/gphhawkins <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/instead-what-yahweh-says-is"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/82ck9PDoV2wURY7K9erOHJN54XgTqwFbmaFEWTPbRH0Ofejq65axVIP9R4sOylvfMPb*Ug4lPKIcTVIeLjrc-9Q6i53umEPr/999234636.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>If God loves people it shouldn't require bowing down and kissing his feet.

He should be able to say "You made some bad choices in your life, you didn't believe in me or you believe in another higher power, but I still love you, you are still my child". But no, he doesn't do that. What the abrahamic God Yahweh does instead, he says "if you don't come here and kiss my feet im going to burn you for all eternity in a like of fire." That's not a loving God at all. That is a vindictive, sadistic, and cruel God. Even if Yahweh were real, which by all evidence shows he isn't, that is not a God I would worship. If it turns out that he does exist, and there is a hell, I will gladly take my punishment, knowing that I lived my life in a good decent manner without the need to praise a being for just existing when there is no proof for his existence, than to worship him blindly without real evidence to go to heaven, with my free will stripped from me. to praise him forever and ever.<br /> That's just me...<br /> <br /> Website:<br /> <a href="http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/">http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/</a><br /> <br /> My Facebook Page:<br /> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/gphhawkins">https://www.facebook.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Tweet with me:<br /> <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins">http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Blogtv:<br /> <a href="http://www.blogtv.com/people/gph_hawkins">http://www.blogtv.com/people/gph_hawkins</a> The Afterlife, Part 2 tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2011-10-22:2182797:Video:1706326 2011-10-22T05:35:19.760Z George hawkins http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/gphhawkins <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/the-afterlife-part-2"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/tCViiwZQfSynEyJOoI0CmJxXrC-3hBp3HuHsZLkan4wOZn50Hb5hfaLoTWD7JyqjTEJrFWaq-duA4uYnXpNu-MtWjr9YbtQk/574758670.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Website:<br></br> <a href="http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/">http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/</a><br></br> <br></br> My Facebook Page:<br></br> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gphhawkins/246909378669578">https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gphhawkins/246909378669578</a><br></br> <br></br> Podcast:…<br></br> <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/the-afterlife-part-2"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/tCViiwZQfSynEyJOoI0CmJxXrC-3hBp3HuHsZLkan4wOZn50Hb5hfaLoTWD7JyqjTEJrFWaq-duA4uYnXpNu-MtWjr9YbtQk/574758670.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Website:<br /> <a href="http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/">http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/</a><br /> <br /> My Facebook Page:<br /> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gphhawkins/246909378669578">https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gphhawkins/246909378669578</a><br /> <br /> Podcast:<br /> <a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/gphhawkins">http://www.blogtalkradio.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Tweet with me:<br /> <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins">http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Blogtv:<br /> <a href="http://www.blogtv.com/people/gph_hawkins">http://www.blogtv.com/people/gph_hawkins</a> Luciferianism tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2011-08-07:2182797:Video:1500532 2011-08-07T13:57:59.540Z George hawkins http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/gphhawkins <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/luciferianism"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/sT58LjADvRqtrQiiSEASzz5bt9fjJ3wqxlFjdGPnaJl3INX-IDLboJnWpFqtQD4vFEimuO1i0Xi1GOEqvJbEaqpSlJtEwEDO/461551388.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>She claims that the crusades, the inquisition, and many more things where done in the name of luciferianism, which is the exact opposite of what they really did it for..<br></br> <br></br> Website:<br></br> <a href="http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/">http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/</a><br></br> <br></br> My Facebook Page:…<br></br> <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/luciferianism"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/sT58LjADvRqtrQiiSEASzz5bt9fjJ3wqxlFjdGPnaJl3INX-IDLboJnWpFqtQD4vFEimuO1i0Xi1GOEqvJbEaqpSlJtEwEDO/461551388.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />She claims that the crusades, the inquisition, and many more things where done in the name of luciferianism, which is the exact opposite of what they really did it for..<br /> <br /> Website:<br /> <a href="http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/">http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/</a><br /> <br /> My Facebook Page:<br /> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gphhawkins/246909378669578">https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gphhawkins/246909378669578</a><br /> <br /> Podcast:<br /> <a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/gphhawkins">http://www.blogtalkradio.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Tweet with me:<br /> <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins">http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Ustream:<br /> <a href="http://www.ustream.com/channel/gphhawkins">http://www.ustream.com/channel/gphhawkins</a>
