Mirror- A Polish priest claims he has been getting hate texts – from a demon. Parish priest Father Marian Rajchel from Jaroslaw, a town in south-eastern Poland, said he started getting the texts after carrying out an exorcism on an unnamed teenage girl. Rajchel interpreted the messages as a sign his attempt to drive out the devil from the girl’s soul had clearly failed, and that it was now using the teenager to attack him via mobile phone messages. “The author of these texts is an evil spirit who has possessed her soul,” he told local media, adding that the devil and his followers were not shy about using modern technology but that in many cases their actions were not identified as being the work of evil. “Often the owners of mobile phones are not even aware that they are being used like this, however in this case it is clear.” One of the text messages he claimed to have received read: “She will not come out of this hell. She’s mine. Anyone who prays for her will die.” Rajchel’s response, however, was that he had prayed for her and sent back another text message, getting the message in return: “Shut up, preacher. You cannot save yourself. Idiot. You pathetic old preacher.”
Welcome to the 21st century, demons! It’s about time. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say we started to lose faith that demons actually existed. You guys were all the rage in the 1970’s when the first Exorcism movie was made. That little girl’s head was spinning around like an owl and she was running up the stairs on her hands and feet. Pea soup throw up and all that. Very convincing stuff. But since then it’s just been shitty movie remake after shitty movie remake that nobody sees and people not giving two fucks about demons. We’re too busy worrying about Kim K’s ass and Johnny Football’s latest slam. But this new strategy is a winner. Berate priests with mean and hateful texts about botched exorcisms. Whoever runs the demon PR department is a genius. What’s all the rage right now in the world? Dick pics, drunk texting, SnapC….Cyber Dust and all around tom foolery with text messages. Demons saw the opportunity and jumped on it. Hateful post-exorcsim tweets is the wave of the demon future. Savvy, savvy indeed.
What’s most likely going on here? Some dude with a messed up sense of humor is fucking with the priest. I gotta say, I approve.
