“Folks who are truly possessed are in dire need. I am sure it happens.”

Truly terrifying. I’m a P.K. and our (independent Baptist) church supported many missionaries on foreign fields. Some would use our parsonage as home base the times they were in the U.S. on furlough. We heard many stories of people being possessed, and the casting out of those demons.

So... when I went to see The Exorcist and many in the theater were laughing, I was terrifed. That was mid-’70s, I guess, and it’s still terrifying.

I started reading the book, until I came to the blasphemous rantings, then I tossed it into the garbage.

It must have been nervous laughter because there was absolutely nothing funny about it.
