Exclamation woman dies in exorcism-style death - May 5th 2009, 12:55 AM

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/809...exorcism-death

"Nine members of a New Zealand family will be named tomorrow after being charged over the exorcism-style manslaughter of a 22-year-old woman. "

sometimes i really think this world is goin bakwards...i do believe ppl hav the right to believe what ever they want but performing an exorcism which leads to a death n then moving on to other ppl who the believed to be "perssesed"...gosh..i dont know.

"During the ceremony, other members of the family were also believed to have become possessed by the curse and were also cleansed.
A 14-year-old girl had her eyes gouged and water poured down her throat, and two people have been charged with injuring her."

Well, I don't know the facts, so I can't be the judge on whether an exorcism should have been performed, or even considered.

As for how they carried it out....I mean...Don't they at least care for the well-being of the person who is "possessed?" This was a pretty messed up exorcism..

Wow. That's pretty insane. And weird that things still go on like that. Like.. really guys? Really?!

I can't even imagine how horrible this was for the girl who got killed. She basically had no chance of survival. And something really is wrong with the family who killed her. Who knows what all they've done to other people.

Oh lord... Well, even if it is in their beliefs, murder trumps religion in this country. It's just absurd... poor girl.

I like to call this segment "Really?" with Bernie.

Awww that poor 14 year old girl.... that would suck so much to have your eyes gouged out.

On another note, I really don't understand these exorcisms. How is killing the person or gouging out their eyes going to help anything? Hm... that reminds me of that play where the guy gouges out his eyes because he killed his father and married his mother.

That would be so painful. But I have to say exorcisms interest me: I really don't know enough on the subject to gauge whether this was an act of compassion or cruelty. I would sway towards cruelty obviously. But there is so much evidence of demons etc in the world, and has been for thousands of years, then there must be some truth in it in my opinion. Although I'm sure there are safer and more humane ways to go about exorcism, if being possessed by demons is infact possible.

wow, what the hell?

Anyone know what religion this is or anything?
Like, Why did they think pouring water all over her was going to help??

And if she changed after he grandmother died, she was probably just acting out as a way of greiving.

What a shame.

It was a Maori curse-lifting ceremony. But I have no idea what that entails.


Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
Marcus Aurelius
