FAKE EXORCISMS TO GENERATE CASH
A reader sent in this story of an Italian priest who performed false exorcisms for cash. He claimed that "30,000 people came to us every year." The priest operates the House of the Sainted Archangels which is not a registered business and does not have a bank account. Instead the account was opened in the priest's name and funnels money for their charitable works through it. Projects are located in India and the Philippines. No website is given in the article, but this looks to be the same organization. They have an orphanage or school, apparently, though I can't read Italian and I might be wrong. Sigh. Why does it always seem to be about the kids--the most vulnerable ones.
