Mass hysteria or demonic posession

The Possessed: True Tales of Demonic Possession The Trinidad Guardian: "As a pastor with over 17 years experience, I feel compelled to respond to the events that unfolded at the Moruga Composite school recently where several young “female” students began manifesting behaviour and symptoms that most people hastily concluded was the work of satan and his hosts of darkness.
I am especially incensed at the haste with which some pastors moved to cash in on the 15 minutes of fame, proclaiming themselves to be exorcists and moving in on the compound like Clint Eastwood armed with holy water and all.One of the most serious issues I have had with my colleagues over the years is their blatant refusal to lift their followers out of the stench of superstition and irrational beliefs.
