      Given the tone of the thread at that point, didn't think anyone would care to make the jump.

      And of course, my larger point, is that 1) the comments are by one priest-advocate-agitator-self-interested promoter, not the pope. 2) There are mostly cautious, reasoned voices in the church regarding exorcism, the devil and demonic possession.  3) The Daily Mail in UK is like the Enquirer here in the states and no "squads" have been dispatched!
