Father Gabriele Amorth, one of the Vatican’s leading excorcist, claims that yoga is Satanic because it often leads people to Hinduism. Father Amorth feels that “all eastern religions are based on a false belief in reincarnation”.
Father Amorth also feels that reading Harry Potter books is also a cause for concern. He feels the books encourage children to believe in black magic and wizardry. He told reporters at a film festival that “practising yoga is Satanic, it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter”. He was invited to the festival to introduce the movie “The Rite”, a film about exorcism starring Sir Anthony Hopkins as a Jesuit priest. Father Amorth went on to say that “in Harry Potter the Devil acts in a crafty and covert manner, under the guise of extraordinary powers, magic spells and curses”.
Two women in Milwaukee have been charged with rape among other charges after police found a man bloody in the street near an apartment building. Police followed a blood trail to the apartment of Rebecca Chandler, whom police say met the victim online and invited him to her apartment for sex. According to the victim, he was held captive for nearly two days during which time Chandler and another female suspect raped the man and stabbed him more than 300 times. Chandler claims that the sex was consensual and that the stabbings started out as cutting but was also consensual and just got out of hand. Chandler also claims that the other suspect known only by her as “Scarlett” did most of the cutting and stabbing. Chandler believes that Scarlett, whom has only been her roommate for a few months, is part of the occult. Both women are being held without bond.
