There is a reason why Jesus' name is spoken during exorcisms and to cleanse a habitat of evil spirits.

That is because Jesus is real.

There's a reason that Allah and Muhammad are brought up five times a day and people die for those two.

It's because Allah and Muhammad are real.

There's a reason the Indians dance for the spirits to cause the rain to fall. It's because the spirits are real.

Excuse me? That's like saying Harry Potter's real because he's talked about on forums.

Mickey Mouse is even more real.

No, it just means that people really believe in him. And if his name is brought up by people exorcising demons or removing evil spirits, then it means that silly superstitious people really believe in him.

Nope, JC is dead if he ever existed and spirits are are made up, but Janet Moses was real before she died during an exorcism, so was Irina Cornici a 23 year old nun who starved to death during an "exorcism" while chained to a cross. Spirits don't kill people, superstition does!

"There is a reason why Jesus' name is spoken during exorcisms and to cleanse a habitat of evil spirits."

Because "exorcists" are insane morons?

Such a beautiful circle of logic.

There's a reason Gandalf could cast the Balrog from the Bridge of Khaza-dum.

That is because the Flame of Anor is real.



Amirite?

Well, yeah, of course he is. But why would you invoke the name of my landscaper in an exorcism?

Jesus H. Christ, this is good coffee!

The coffee was real.

Nevermind that exorcisms have killed the unfortunate souls on the receiving end and the Catholic church had to change the rules so that victims of suspected possession had to under psychoanalysis to rule out mental illness first.

So hang on, I can make any fictional character real just by using their name in an exorcism?

I EXORCISE THIS KEYBOARD IN THE NAME OF THE DOCTOR.

Gotta run, the TARDIS just landed...

No, it's because the people who perform such things generally believe in Jesus. That's not the same thing at all.

I have a magical anti-unicorn amulet. There is a reason why you never see any unicorns anywhere near me. That is because the magic in my anti-unicorn amulet is real.

Old Viking

He's certainly as real as the evil spirits are.

Fuck the exorcism in the first place. Have some fun with it. Why don't they just invoke the one we call The Desolate One. The first of the fallen. The spoiler of virgins. The master of abortions.

Let me help you out of your chair Grandma...

my little reference to Clerks 2 here

Or you could use Harry Potter's Finite Incantatem spell to counteract their powers. It works just as well as calling on Jesus ...

So when people say god's name during orgasm, that proves he's real?

I'll exorcise mine in the name of Eric Northman, thanks ;)

Go right ahead, #1124784 :D In fact, why stop at our keyboards? I exorcise this candle in the name of Dream of the Endless, I exorcise this partially knitted Dalek in the name of Lord Vetinari, I exorcise this lava lamp in the name of Ged...

We can just keep going forever! There are far more objects in the world to exorcise than there are fictional characters we might want to make real.

(Yes, I have a weird collection of things in my desktop environment.)

Actually, if Poul Anderson's book Operation Chaos is correct it's simply psychology. The demons only THINK Jesus exists and they get scared enough to leave the body. No requirement for Jesus actually being real.

Hmmm. Last time I checked the source code, Jesus was integer.

I would say its because these exorcisms are done by Christians. As in Jesus CHRIST.
