Priest ‘Exorcises’ Hotel Room of Vegas Shooter

October 26, 2017

by Ed Brayton

A Catholic priest performed an “exorcism” in the hotel room of the shooter in Las Vegas and gave all the usual vague nonsense about how he felt the presence of evil and blah, blah, blah. But he splashed some “holy water” around and uttered some words, so it’s all gone now.

“I felt like I was being pushed back like don’t come in here,” he said. “On the inside, I’m going, ‘Oh no, you have to go.’”

Kiley saw bullet holes sprayed across the hall and plaster covering the floor. As he walked toward Paddock’s room feeling on edge, he began to say the Catholic prayer, “‘St. Michael, the Archangel,’ to defend us in battle.”…

Kiley could sense the evil in the room and what had happened there, he said.

Like the rest of the world, the priest could not comprehend what had taken place.

“This is what we call the mystery of evil,” he said. “You cannot use reason to put the pieces of this together.”

Yeah, so instead of using reason, he used fantasy. Hey, I’ve got an idea. Now that he’s done getting the evil out of Mandalay Bay, maybe he can make a tour of all the Catholic churches in the world where priests molested children and get all the evil out of those. Or go to the Vatican itself and cleanse the place of the Inquisition and all the anti-Semitic pogroms that killed so many Jews. Just a thought.
