    In an interview with the magazine “Maria Mensajera,” famous Italian
    exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth said, “Everybody is vulnerable to the
    work of Satan” and that “the devil loves to take over those who hold
    political office.”

    The Spanish daily “La Razon” published the interview in an article by
    Alexander Smoltczyk in which the 82 year-old priest describes what
    happens in an exorcism. He said he has performed more than 70,000.

    “Evil exists in politics, quite often in fact,” Father Amorth said.
    “The devil loves to take over business leaders and those who hold
    political office. Hitler and Stalin were possessed. How do I know?
    Because they killed millions of people. The Gospel says: ‘By their
    fruits you will know them.’ Unfortunately, an exorcism on them would
    not have been enough, since they were convinced of what they were
    doing. We can’t say it was a possession in the strict sense of the
    word, but rather a total and voluntary acceptance of the suggestions
    of the devil.”

    “I tell those who come to see me to first go to a doctor or a
    psychologist,” the priest continued. “Most of the time there is a
    physical or psychological basis for explaining their suffering. The
    psychiatrists send me the incurable cases. There is no rivalry. The
    psychiatrist determines if it is an illness, the exorcist if it is a
    curse,” Father Amorth explained.

    Nobody, he went on, not even himself, is “safe from the devil.
    Everyone is vulnerable.” “The devil is very intelligent. He retains
    the intelligence of the angel that he was.”
