So who decides when exorcism work is needed ? and how far is to far people? there are about (6) cases of self proclaimed exorcisms that went horridly wrong. The end result, was always the same In these said cases. Murder was the outcome and the said individuals who were to undergo exorcism’s were always the victims.The very sad part was in these 7 cases the folks who did the said exorcism, they were the ones that needed the help, either they had mental disorders or some sort of schizophrenia, but the individuals that performed the exorcism’s were the ones that needed to be exorcised..
The idea that people are possessed with demons or evil spirits is one the most widely held religious and spiritual beliefs in modern day time, perhaps in the history of the world
Demonic possession and exorcisms are often thought of as archaic.The Vatican released its guidelines for exorcism in 1614, but has redone their policies and guidelines since then many times. They have rewritten the methods and ideology.
It seems every since the Movie, “The Exorcist” came out, it made a larger then life splash on the demonic theme and concept. Now all our shows of the paranormal are evil entity types, associated with demonic influences, poltergeists and anything that will scare you. Has this been the reason for so many already psychologically disturbed folks and their ideas to perform these so weird and horridly gone wrong exorcisms? I think we should take a look at how the media and entertainment world effects people. How do you think these types of shows effects a young child?

This next botched said exorcism is a sad one in detail.This is a story about a is two year old named Jocelyn Guzman Rodriguez. Eder Guzman-Rodriguez. A 28-year-old father lived in Floyd, Virginia, and thought that his 2-year-old daughter, Jocelyn, was possessed by demons. The brutal exorcism was held on November 23, 2011.

One other account of a said botched exorcism, was the death of a 17 year old teen, Charity Miranda Martin. The article was also published inside The New York Times.
Woman Who Called Daughter Possessed, Pleads Not Guilty to Her Murder.
RIVERHEAD, N.Y., Jan. 27— Vivian Miranda, a 39-year-old Long Island mother who told the police she killed her 17-year-old daughter because she was possessed by a demon, pleaded not guilty today to murder charges.
Mrs. Miranda’s 20-year-old daughter, Serena Miranda Martin, who the police say held her sister down while her mother suffocated the girl during a seven-hour exorcism ritual, also pleaded not guilty.
Judge Morton Weissman of Suffolk County Court set bail at $1 million for Mrs. Miranda and $250,000 bail or $50,000 cash bond for Serena, whom the prosecutor, Assistant District Attorney Janet Albertson, described as ”less culpable” because it was Mrs. Miranda, she said, who covered the face of her younger daughter, Charity Miranda Martin, with a plastic bag while directing Serena to hold her down.
Ms. Albertson had asked for a $750,000 bail for Serena to keep her in jail. A $50,000 cash bond, if obtained by Serena’s father, Arthur Martin, would enable Serena, Ms. Albertson said, to rejoin her 15-year-old sister, Elizabeth Miranda Martin, at their father’s house. Elizabeth was present at the Miranda home at 17 Aldrich Street, in Sayville, and told the police in a chilling four-page statement that she observed most of the exorcism ritual on Jan. 18.
Ms. Albertson said that placing Serena back with Elizabeth, who was not charged in the death but might be a witness during the trial, could be a ”catalyst for future events.”
As a show of support for Serena, Mr. Martin sat in the front row of seats in the courtroom. Outside the courthouse, he indicated that he did not yet know whether he could raise the $50,000 bond, but said, ”I love and believe in my daughter and I have trust and confidence that the criminal justice system will do the right thing.” He declined to comment on the charges against his former wife. They were divorced eight years ago.
Mrs. Miranda’s lawyer, Eric Naiburg, told Judge Weissman that he had withdrawn an earlier request for psychiatric tests for his client. He told the judge that he had met several times with Mrs. Miranda and that she seemed capable of understanding the charges against her and able to participate in her defense.
Mr. Naiburg said that he did not doubt Mrs. Miranda’s claim that she suffocated Charity, a high school cheerleader, ”because she had a demon inside her.”
”All you have to do is turn on the television on Sunday and you hear one preacher after another talking about sin and the devil and about driving out one’s demons,” Mr. Naiburg said. ”What she did should not come as a surprise to anyone who has heard those preachers.”
Richard Haley, the lawyer representing Serena, said that Mrs. Miranda had a strong influence over her daughter. He said Mrs. Miranda had raised her three daughters under a strict religious doctrine and had educated them at home, permitting them to go to public school only during their high school years.
Both lawyers indicated that they would seek to convince a jury that while their clients were not psychologically ill or mentally diseased when they suffocated Charity, they were nevertheless suffering from a mental defect because of their intense religious beliefs.
The sixth case that was equally disturbing is Terrance Cottell J.R. the only thing wrong with Cottell, is he had autism. Like so many children today he was severely disabled. Cottell as having autism the young lad acted out, as many do who have the autism disease. This is what may have lead the parents to their ideas of their boy being demonic influenced.
Terrence’s mother, Patricia Cooper, brought him to Faith Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith in Milwaukee, where he was given nine special prayer sessions over a three-week span.
On August 2, 2003, at the storefront church, Ray Hemphill, who was a minister at the church, tried to perform an exorcism on the young autistic boy. Terrence, who hated to be touched, was held down by his mother and two other parishioners while Hemphill laid a cross on top of the boy’s chest.
While it is unclear what happened from there, at the end of the two-hour exorcism Terrence wasn’t breathing because he had been suffocated. Hemphill was sentenced to only two and a half years in prison for killing the eight-year-old boy.
The cases I have listed are just a few of some horridly gone wrong exorcisms, we hop that if you feel you need or know of someone in need of a said exorcism, you will get proper attention, consult a doctor first, then consult actual clergy that have been known to practice such a thing, We wish everyone out there to be safe and to be careful.
