Well, a group of rabid – not to say highly dangerous – Christians in Connecticut seem to think so, if this story in the Lexington Herald-Leader and reproduced on its website is anything to go by.
It talks of a video that’s been made of such a ceremony:
The video shows the 16-year-old boy lying on the floor, his body convulsing, as elders of a small Connecticut church cast a “homosexual demon” from his body.
“Rip it from his throat!” a woman yells. “Come on, you homosexual demon! You homosexual spirit, we call you out right now! Loose your grip, Lucifer!”
You can see bits of the video (it’s a bit disturbing) by clicking below. It’s part of a news programme, and the anchors discuss the video after showing an excerpt from it. So you might like to play all 5:20 of what we’ve embedded below and hear the comments.
It does raise wonderful possibilities if it works, though. Imagine exorcising members of the Deluded Herd of the weird spirits that possess them.
That would make for an interesting video.
[Since writing this I’ve come across the entire video, so I’ve put it below the one we first embedded. Enjoy! If that's the right word!]
