A REAL-LIFE DEMON POSSESSION IS BEING REPORTED IN INDIANA
theblaze.com ^ | january 27, 2014 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 01/27/2014 5:39:18 PM PST by lowbridge

A terrified mother claims she watched in horror as her demon-possessed 9-year-old son walked backwards up a wall and ceiling. Her claims would be easy to dismiss if a child services case worker and a nurse weren’t reportedly there to witness it all.

Latoya Ammons claims all three of her children showed signs of being possessed, including “evil” smiles and strangely deep voices, the Indianapolis Star reports. The mother says she also witnessed her 12-year-old daughter levitating in their Gary, Ind., home.

Strangely enough, the scary-sounding incident is outlined in official documents. Further, Gary police Capt. Charles Austin told the Star that he is a “believer” after making several visits to the home and interviewing witnesses. He first thought the family was making stories up as part of a get-rich-quick scheme.

Ammons’ home was “exorcized” by a catholic priest in a number of ceremonies that were reportedly authorized by the Diocese of Gary. The story apparently became so believable that officers with the police department said they were too scared to stay at the house and some city officials wouldn’t even step foot on the property.

Why does Satan need to possess kids like this when we have the television he gave us?

come on... in this day and age no one whipped out their cell phone to grab it on video?

of course, Gary being one of the murder capitals of the country, i can understand why possessions would start there.

start... there.

I guess Catholics Priests are the only ones that can remove the devil. No wonder why the left hates Catholics.

I happened to be present when an exorcism was carried out by an experienced person. It wasn't quite like Hollywood depicts it but it was kinda scary any way.

Possession? There’s been an actual demon in the white house for 5 years.

Seriously, I believe this stuff. I’ve seen it on a small scale but was enough to scare the crap out of me.

Well, at least she's gone to the media with it, instead of just chopping off their heads or drowning them like some others have done.

From the linked IndyStar:

Campbell and Ammons also told The Star they reached out to two clairvoyants, who said the family's home was besieged by more than 200 demons. Their explanation made sense to Campbell and Ammons, they say, because it meshed with their Christian faith.

I'm sure the clairvoyants gave really good advice.

Cameras are everywhere, why is it none of these so-called levitations or whatever has ever been recorded?

Tell you what, anyone starts acting possessed around here I’ll be making the biggest bucks Youtube has ever paid out.

Seems like The Blaze could do better than posting silly spook stories to generate link clicks. I’ve seen videos of the “possessed” before, and invariably they are either pathetic frauds looking for attention or are in dire need of psychiatric care.(And often both.) Sometimes they’re on an intoxicant of some variety. Never have seen one of them levitate or spin their heads around, etc., other than in Hollywood productions.

Everytime he gets on camera, I hope for a fly to appear. I’m not saying he is the devil, but I think his past history with flies is both bizarre and hysterical.

I've never seen this. But I think it's possible. The Bible records a couple of cases of demonic possession.

The realms we are dealing with here have mastered technological mimicry. It is no surprise the crucifixion of Christ Jesus occurred in an age when video cameras and the New York Times were not yet on the world stage. I know a man who experienced the occult personally, and when his presentations are recorded, for some reason the recordings never turn out. On one occasion the playback contained radio transmissions from the local school bus drivers.

We can just imagine their desperation to explain this away.

I guess Catholics Priests are the only ones that can remove the devil. No wonder why the left hates Catholics.

That is hardly the case, as most Catholics are on the left, in contrast to evangelicals , and the most subtle effective demonic activity is in religion, especially Rome.

And Jews cast out demons, and in this case after several exorcisms, it was apparently after moving that they found relief. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/01/27/family-possessed-seeks-exorcism/4939953/

This video is kind of interesting. It's got the landlord, who doesn't really believe but acknowledges that 5 people claim to have seen the kid walk backward up the wall. It's got the priest describing the reactions to the excorcism ritual.

A googling of the priest, found a linked in profile, several articles where he is defending another priest. Apparently he is both a priest and a canon lawyer.

And a 2004 article where he was refusing to submit to a background check requested either by the church or by the bishop. Wasn't clear on who was requesting it.

So the priest appears to be a legitimate priest, though his fight against a background check does raise questions.

It isn't true. I have seen it twice. Baptist context. Worked on first try. No ritual whatsoever. Just a straightforward three-way conversation where the believer pulls rank on the nasty critter and Jesus does all the heavy lifting. No recidivism either. Seriously. This is available to all believers. Bring at least a mustard seed's worth of faith.

Of course it hasn’t. You can’t form a reasoned opinion with your head in the sand, and I generally check on stories that challenge my beliefs. I have yet to see evidence of a “possession” that cannot be explained without resort to the supernatural, but the Blaze story thread piqued my interest. I guess I gave them more credit than I should have.
