Read the article (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=402602&in_page_id=1770):


Adolf Hitler and Russian leader Stalin were possessed by the Devil, the Vatican's chief exorcist has claimed.


Father Gabriele Amorth who is Pope Benedict XVI's 'caster out of demons' made his comments during an interview with Vatican Radio.


Father Amorth said: "Of course the Devil exists and he can not only possess a single person but also groups and entire populations.


"I am convinced that the Nazis were all possessed. All you have to do is think about what Hitler - and Stalin did. Almost certainly they were possessed by the Devil.


"You can tell by their behaviour and their actions, from the horrors they committed and the atrocities that were committed on their orders. That's why we need to defend society from demons."


According to secret Vatican documents recently released wartime pontiff Pope Pius XII attempted a "long distance" exorcism of Hitler which failed to have any effect.


Father Amorth said: "It's very rare that praying and attempting to carry out an exorcism from distance works.


"Of course you can pray for someone from a distance but in this case it would not have any effect.


"One of the key requirements for an exorcism is to be present in front of the possessed person and that person also has to be consenting and willing.


"Therefore trying to carry out an exorcism on someone who is not present, or consenting and willing would prove very difficult.


"However I have no doubt that Hitler was possessed and so it does not surprise me that Pope Pius XII tried a long distance exorcism."

Ridiculous. I cant believe they really tried to exorzise Hitler and they even admitted it. I believe that the Catholic Church and its clerics is posessed by the Devil. They have violently killed more people than the nazis and communists togheter, they just did it over a longer period of time. But to kill innocent pagans, wise women and other infidels is no crime, thats to do gods holy work.

Well they're catholics and I'm sure they also believe in the official version of the history so I can't see anything wrong with it eventhough they should get a reeducation visit to the holocaust conference in Iran ;)
