Mixed feelings about this. First, they’re tackling a very dangerous topic. Second, I worry about this being used to mock the Church.
On the other hand, I think some people forget that evil is very real & does indeed exist. Maybe this will remind them.
They need to send the team to Washington. Stat!
Mention a papal pilgrimage or the life of a modern saint and it's .........blaaah.............whatever.....
Mention something about the occult or exorcisms and it's......."wow........what time's it on??!!"
Discovery knows this and thinks it's on to a winner.
I'm not sure what the Vatican is thinking. Perhaps they think this will help to convince people of the existence of evil as an objective reality but they need to be careful. Exorcism is not meant to be entertainment and real exorcists are self-effacing, retiring people who do not court publicity
I wonder if they will tackle the muhammad possession?
I won’t be watching. Demons and Satanic possession scare me to death. I read an article about exorcisms in Crisis magazine several years ago that made my hair stand on end. Terrifying subject matter.
I’m not happy about this.
The Catholic church has, up until this, kept exorcism and demonic posession very low key. It has thus avoided making a serious issue into a sensational issue.
I saw that, it was great.
I’m no fan of the Catholic church but when it comes to this, I am. I have no doubts this stuff is real and they are the only ones prepared to fight it.
interesting . . .
Sounds interesting. I usually laugh when Discovery or History try to tell the world about anything Christian, but this doesn’t seem to be one of their usual stories. This one could be really good.
The timing of this series is interesting. According to the article, they plan to broadcast the episodes this spring, when the movie Suing The Devil opens in theatres.
I think it will be good.Vatican has final say on what to cut.
Gave up the TV once had our first child. 5 children and 9 years later, we only use the TV for VHS/DVD. Saved my children from getting poisoned, saved a ton of time to do productive activities and work, and saved like $10,000 in cable fees.
