So, why is there no evangelical rite of exorcism? We “deal with angels and demons,” too, right?

Because evangelicals don't have "rites." They have the authority of the priesthood of the believer.

That must be why there are something like 23000 different brands of Evangelical Protestantism.

Some brands believe they are saved regardless of their sins, others that believe they have no free will, and so on.

Here's the common denominator: they all believe like crazy, and they do it on their own authority.

Which is very different than the ministerial Priesthood of the ordained.
