What about exorcisms for molesters?

This is a serious post with some serious questions.

Do you suppose that any clergy sex molesters in Los Angeles and elsewhere have needed, or still need, exorcism? Have you seen any articles by exorcists or bishops about this?

You would think a molester might be under demonic influence to the extent of being at least obsessed.

Have any exorcisms ever been carried out on clergy sex molesters? Have any exorcisms been suggested or recommended for them? Have any molesters ever sought exorcism?

I am not at all saying that exorcism would cure a molester. But maybe it could have some beneficial spiritual influence and lead to ultimate repentance.

If any exorcist, padre or obispo has any thoughts on this, I would love to hear from him. Thank you in advance.

You're, literally, opening a Pandora's box with this question. The implications are very troubling. What if these folks were indeed oppressed (or worse)...and didn't want the demons exorcised?

Rumors have circulated in the past that some Church officials had embraced Satanic worship. Further, sexual abuse is sometimes associated with ritualistic Satanic worship.

When you start asking questions like this, and start noticing how a select few seminaries produced a huge number of molesters and bishops who protected them, well, it's troubling to say the least. And isn't it funny, those are the same bishops that the rumors were... well, enough conjuncture.

All in all, it's an incredibly disturbing line of thought to consider. Didn't Jesus say something about, "Wolves in sheep's clothing"

What if such accusations are wrong? What if they are right? Smoke of Satan indeed. St. Michael, pray for us.

Dear Anonymous 4:13 p.m.,

Let's say the prayer:

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. Restrain him, O God, we humbly beseech Thee; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Divine power cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits who roam the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
