Fr. Amorth's latest contribution to confusion
Recently, Fr. Amorth announced his conclusion that Hitler and all Nazis, and Stalin (but not all Communists?) were possessed by the Devil. I suspect that others will ably point out what a very problematic assertion, at many levels, that is. For now, I only call attention to my negative review of Amorth's most famous book, An Exorcist Tells His Story (1999) and respectfully suggest that IAE consider making it clear that the ubiquitous Fr. Amorth does not speak for them.
For those who would like a generally reliable narration of an actual possession/exorcism case, see Thomas Allen, Possessed: The True Story of an Exorcism (1993); see also Henninger Media Development, "In the Grip of Evil" (DVD 1997), containing, among other things, interviews with Allen and Fr. Walter Halloran, SJ, the seminarian who assisted the original St. Louis exorcist in 1949. (And yes, I know the weird Bp. Emmanuel Milingo makes a brief appearance toward the end of the film. Oh well.)
