Exorcist: Devil Influences Abortion Industry
The Bulletin ^ | February 03, 2009 | John P. Connolly

Posted on 02/06/2009 5:35:10 AM PST by IbJensen

An exorcist authorized to perform exorcisms in several dioceses spoke at a religious ministry luncheon on Sunday, explaining the basics of exorcism and its connection with abortion.

Fr. Thomas Euteneuer, president of Human Life International and an exorcist, spoke at a luncheon hosted by In His Sign Network (IHS). He is an exorcist authorized to perform exorcisms in several states, and highlighted the connection between the abortion industry and demonic influence.

“Abortion is a demonic industry,” he told The Bulletin. “Abortion is blood sacrifice of innocent blood to the devil. The clinics are like temples, the doctors are like priests, the medical table is like their altar. It’s a ritualized sacrifice. They have a dogma called choice, a hierarchy called Planned Parenthood, and guardian angels in the form of police guards that will arrest you if you try to stop them.”

He said that there have been abortionists who have called abortion “their sacrament.” Fr. Euteneuer advocates prayer as a necessary step to successfully fighting abortion.

“Abortion is a spiritual evil,” he said. “If we are to beat it, we can’t just fight it in the political realm. It derives its power from below. To confront a force this strong, you need a massive amount of prayer. That’s why I like the 40 Days For Life group, because they bring us what we need where we need it.”

Fr. Euteneuer explained the basic exorcism procedure, and the tactics the devil uses to possess a person. The first tactic relies on seduction, trying to get the victim to invite him into their lives.

“Most people with demonic problems have opened a door somewhere,” said Fr. Euteneuer. He cited the popularity of the occult in bringing people closer to demonic interaction, primarily through the growth of the New Age movement and other paraphernalia. He said that even Hasbro markets Ouija boards to children.

“I’m very set against Harry Potter,” he said. “It’s pumping into our children’s minds the language and imagery of the occult. It’s extremely spiritually dangerous.”

He also called attention to a growing fascination with the cult of the vampire, especially through the popularity of books and movies like Twilight, where the main character falls in love with a vampire.

“I predict that in the next 10 years or so, we’ll see an explosion of occult activity,” said Fr. Euteneuer. “The number of soft-core occultism in the form of things like Harry Potter, Wicca and the New Age is on the increase. These are the gateways to the hardcore stuff. Ask any inner-city police department if they’re seeing evidence of Satanism. They’re organizing whole task forces to deal with crimes having to do with these things. As society becomes more faithless, this wickedness comes and fills the vacuum.”

Fr. Euteneuer said the other tactic a devil uses is victimization of a person. The person in question doesn’t always need to invite demonic activity, but can have it placed on them by other groups or people.

Nevertheless, Fr. Euteneuer stressed that exorcism is not often the dramatic thing the movies make it out to be.

“The devil doesn’t have the power you see in the movies,” he said. “He cannot hold onto a state of possession for a given length of time. The movies glorify his power. They do a good job in showing the priest coming to care for these people, but the priest carefully binds that devil, and he is a prisoner in that person.”

Exorcism requires prayer and fasting, and requires a long period of discernment to determine if the problem is not, in fact, psychological.

“A report is made to the diocese, and then the bishop must authorize a solemn exorcism,” explained Fr. Euteneuer.

The priest will then use a ritual in Latin where he binds whatever demonic entity is troubling a person and commands him. Fr. Euteneuer told the audience that the process is not unlike a trial, where the priest is the prosecuting attorney and the demon is trapped. The word “exorcism” itself means to put somebody on trial. The devil is required to answer any demands the priest makes to him in the name of Christ, because of the authority that the priest has from Christ.

“Exorcism is a pastoral ministry of the Church, and it’s an important ministry,” said Fr. Euteneuer. “But confession is a much more important ministry, because it pulls out the sins which are the conditions for a possession.”

IHS Network Serves As Radio Ministry

The In His Sign Network (IHS) has been a listener-supported radio ministry for over 30 years.

IHS broadcasts a daily show on WTMR 800 AM, out of Trenton from 5 to 6 p.m.

“We put on retreats or events that are topical to issues going on in the Catholic Church,” said Kathleen McCarthy, president of IHS. “I see our mission as bringing the fire of God’s love to the world.”

Ms. McCarthy’s son, Brian, spoke about its mission at the luncheon on Sunday.

“One way or the other, media will guide and shape society,” he said. “That society has a lot of weaknesses, fears and anxieties. [But] Christ has already won the victory. The IHS Network is proclaiming that victory.”

While a bit over the top by and large I agree with him. There is something sinister about a society that supposedly relishes life but snuffs out innocent unborns like so much garbage.

The good father failed to mention sexual perversion and immorality as a way of giving an invitation to demonic forces.
The spilling of innocent blood and sexual perversion/immorality empower the forces of spiritual wickedness.

Abortion will haunt this country even more than slavery did in the end.

“Abortion is a demonic industry,” he told The Bulletin. “Abortion is blood sacrifice of innocent blood to the devil.

Abortion is a terrible evil, I will never understand the logic people use to defend it. The devil's mission is one of hatred - hatred of God, hatred of souls and all that is sacred, pure, holy and innocent.

Precisely.

And, by the way, the government school is really the bus ministry of the state church of humanism.

It would be better for the abortionists and their sycophants that they place a rope tied to a millstone around their necks and jump into the Potomac River.

What awaits them in hell is forever.

You have only to read your Bible to see he is right...(on many levels)

There is blood guilt and it's on our nation.....

..We have created an American Holocaust by murdering 50 million babies.....50 million potential citizens of the US.

Corporately we are in trouble bigtime with God.

I agree with you. We had a priest in Ft. Worth who used to preach on this very thing. Even if you, a Christian, have no blood guilt personally, we as a country in fact do have it. And God will not be mocked and this innocent blood is crying out for justice.

Scary, scary, scary, it’s coming folks, may already be starting.

This IS the end. God gave us a neo-Marxist president and congress. And they are Godless.

What do you mean by WE?

God has a problem with people that support abortion; or vote to put someone like that into the ruling class. The responsibility is equal.

My father was a family physician in a small town and in his 60 years of practice delivered many babies at home. He often said that abortion was a great affront to God and that those who supported it would be subject to divine punishment.

There are two undeniable truths about liberalism

1) Liberalism is simply using force to make the innocent pay for the consequences of the irresponsible.
2) The only freedoms that liberalism supports are those related to sexual behavior.

Abortion is the quintessential liberal issue, because it makes the MOST innocent pay, with its very life, for the irresponsible sexual behavior decisions of others.

And yes, it’s easily proven that liberalism is anti-God. Just step through the 10 commandments, 5 through 10 specifically, and think about where libs stand on each.

I’ve seen homosexuality and political correctness as gateways to get people to reject traditional values and traditional morality. The media also pushes a lot of stuff on young people that ridicules religion, the family, personal responsibility etc. If people reject traditional values they seem to gradually drift towards bad things.

Mother Teresa said years ago that "abortion was the work of the Devil."

Now the Catholic Church is catching on? Boy are they slow.

The media apparently has a death wish.

Media glorifies Islam and Islamic traditions while it trashes Christianity. If terrorists get their hands and scimitars on a 'journalist's' neck, heads will roll.

Humans, although created by God, are a feckless gaggle.

Lifetimes are measured in decades which to God is no more than a blinking of an eye.

Some feel that there will be no accounting at life's end for the evil we have allowed to happen. We are as responsible for the piles of murdered babies as the ones who actively support this evil if we don't fight back.

Original Version of the Prayer to St. Michael the
Archangel written by

Pope Leo XIII in 1886

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

Glorious Prince of the Celestial Host, St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the conflict which we have to sustain against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places (Eph 6:12).

Come to the rescue of men whom God has redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. It is thou whom Holy Church venerates as her guardian and her protector; thou whom the Lord has charged to conduct redeemed souls into heaven.

Pray therefore, the God of peace, to subdue Satan beneath our feet, that he may no longer retain men captive nor do injury to the Church.

Present our prayers to the Most High, that without delay they may draw His mercy down upon us. Seize “the dragon, the ancient serpent, which is the devil and Satan,” bind him and cast him into the bottomless pit...”that he may no longer seduce the nations” (Rev 20:2-3).

Well said - one need only turn to the Old Testament to see that children were sacrificed on altars to the god Moloch (satan) - God told the Israeli's that He could hardly believe that he had to tell them (the Hebrews) not to do those things (paraphrase) that the pagans were doing.

Standing outside abortion mills telling people that "they kill babies in there" is just so bizarre - sometimes I can't believe we have to be telling people that.
(But if you said: "They kill puppies in there", thousands would be outside protesting....)

Yes, she was a Catholic nun, and the Church didn't by and large didn't listen to her. Her voice was one crying out in the wilderness. The Church had been silent about abortion up to now. They should have stood up in outrage when Roe v Wade was ruled on, and they did nothing.

Evil triumphed then.
