A new trend is on the rise in Europe and the United States.

According to warnings from church leaders, the trend is proving to be a “booming industry,” despite its historical implications.

The strange ritual is on the rise in both western countries, and it has everything to do with the influx of immigrants and lack of morals found within the younger generation.

The demand for exorcisms has risen exponentially since aliens with Pentecostaland charismatic backgrounds have migrated into the western world.

Pentecostals and Charismatics are known particularly for their dealings with exorcisms and “deliverance,”  and many individuals from underdeveloped cultures who follow such faith believe that exorcisms are the best way to cleanse oneself.

Theos’ strange report claims that the trend is occurring in the United States as well, though it is less likely due to migrant travels and more to do with the degradation of morals in society.

The Daily Caller reported:

“Jesus’ command was to heal the sick and to cast out demons,” the report reads. “The two are not synonymous. Just as for physical ailments we recommend seeking medical assistance, so it must be for mental illness. This is not to discount the possibility of demonic attacks, but it is to apply caution, in order to ensure that we are best looking after the needs of sufferers.”

Leaders in the Catholic Church noted that the increased demand for exorcisms was not localized to the U.K. but is also seen in the U.S. Catholic leaders’ assessment of the issue. The cause for the increased demand, however, is not simply an issue of immigrant culture, but was also attributed to an increase in demonic activity, according to Father Vincent Lampert, lead exorcist of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

“The problem isn’t that the devil has upped his game, but more people are willing to play it,”  Lampert said in an interview with National Catholic Register (NCR). Among the entry points for demonic activity into someone’s life, Lampert pointed to drug use, the occult, pornography, and in more extreme cases, satanic rituals, all of which Lampert said has been increasing in use in the U.S.

The demand for exorcisms is currently dominating Europe due to its many open-borders policies.

While the United States still has a demand for exorcisms, the demand is far less and has more to do with the loosening of morals in a liberally-challenged society.

Breitbart News reported:

“As the acceptance of sin has increased, so, too, has demonic activity,” Esseff told NCR. “The bishops saw the need for more trained exorcists because so many cases were being referred from all over the country to the dioceses that had exorcists.”

While neither the church nor the report issued by Theos denied the reality of demonic possession or exorcisms, interviewees in the mental health field claimed those requesting exorcisms were most likely experiencing mental health issues rather than actual possession.
