Francis’ Troubles and The Demon Possessed Italian Historian

“I wonder what it was that caused Francis to get Diverticulitis Hemicolectomy?” Amadeus remarked as he looked at the photo.

“Probaby that huge tray of multi-layers of cheese and multi-layers of meatballs pasta that he ate,” Renfield suggested.

“That would do it all right,” Amadeus agreed.

. . .

Rev. Father Aidan Bury Saint Edmunds the Church of England’s leading exorcist was in an attic in the city of Rome performing an exorcism on the demon possessed Italian historian Roberto de Mattei.

He was being assisted in this by Tony Fausti of the Italian Weightlifters’ Association.

“I don’t like French split green pea soup,” the demon possessed Italian historian Roberto de Mattei commented as he vomitted alphabet soup all over the place, “That’s why I’m not barfing up French split green pea soup while my head is spinning like Linda Blair did in the 1973 film The Exorcist. I much prefer alphabet soup.”

The demon possessed historian spewed forth more alphabet soup.

“Look,” Fausti pointed, “These letters in the demonically spouted alphabet soup spell EMMANUEL MACRON over here and over there those letters in the demonically spouted alphabet soup spell COUGARS.”

Fausti sighed, “Well, I guess if we have to confront a demon, it might as well be a demon with a sense of humour.

“Be quiet, Tony,” Father Aidan Bury Saint Edmunds admonished, “This is serious business.”

    Damn…I can’t believe it took me so long to put some of this stuff together! Mattei is possessed by SARS-CoV-2, and the alphabet soup is spelling those also “possessed”. The assistant is Fauci, and the church is against the vaccine. I knew and understood the humor and was laughing right up to the last sentence when it just hit me like a ton of bricks when my brain connected Tony to the real name. I may be completely off base, and if I am, please tell me. But whether or not I am, this is brilliantly done. And if I’m right, it’s even more brilliant.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Mattei is possessed by the vaccine.

      And the alphabet soup is spelling out the names of those also possessed.

      Francis’ church is actually for the vaccine.

      During the early part of 2021, I couldn’t make up my mind about the vaccine or not.

      Was it safe? Was developing it too rushed?

      It was actually when Francis started insisting that everyone take the vaccine that I turned against it.

      Since about the autumn of 2015, everything that Francis is for, I’m against is about the way it is and my writing shows that.

      Tony Fausti is my pun on the name Tony Fauci.

      It’s a combination of Faust (the German alchemist who sold his soul to the Devil) and Fauci.

      So I’m implying that the assistant Father Aidan Bury Saint Edmunds selected in helping to hold the possessed person down (you often need such a person at exorcisms) is himself demonically possessed.

      I remember about a month or two ago, I wrote an email to an old university friend of mine wondering if this Delta variant wasn’t in fact being caused by the vaccines themselves.

      Since the Delta variant seems to be spreading like wildfire in Israel which has the most vaccinated per capita population on the planet.

      A few days after I wrote that email, I came across an article saying that the French scientist who isolated and discovered the AIDS virus is now saying much the same thing.

      That it’s the vaccines themselves that are causing the Delta variant.

  2. Marlapaige said,

    OK, so I was correct by being completely backwards LOL But here’s where I got what I did, and some response to your response:

    Mattei and Macron both contracted Covid which is why I thought that’s what you meant. I have not read anything stating that they came out for the vaccine. Also, “cougars” made me think that it was the infection itself as it was just recently announced that the first cougar had contracted it, and that humans can pass it on to our fury little friends.

    I got half of the Tony Fousti pun. I know who Foust is, and I know who Fouci is, but I didn’t put it together that you were also speaking of Faust. Knowing that, I get the implication.

    I am also oddly aware of how exorcisms are supposed to occur. Not just from movies and fictional books, but because I actually had a weird interest in them a long while back. It is not in my belief system, but I still found it fascinating. It was about the time they were exorcising children and some of them were accidentally being killed during the unnecessary procedures. Also, they are apparently on the rise again in America – fun times.

    I heard the Pope was for the vaccine, but in this country that doesn’t seem to count for much anymore. He says to get the vaccine and suddenly every single person says not to get it. So I had forgotten that he said they were for it as everyone is always spouting their religion as a reason not to. Why do you disagree so strongly with Pope Francis? Is it because he has yet to apologize for crimes against the indigenous children?

    My entire family has had the vaccines, but we didn’t all get them at once. Some got Pfizer some Moderna. Since there are children in the family, and anxiety runs deep as almost a genetic trait, the discussions about Israel, India and the vaccines has been pretty heavy. Moderna supposedly offers more protection than Pfizer does, and both more than the single vaccine. A booster may be a solution but since the majority of people have not yet had their second dose, a booster will have to wait.

    I believe that the vaccines causing the Delta variant is both accurate and inaccurate. If there was no inoculation against it then the Delta variant would probably have existed anyway, but it would have just continued to fall under “Covid infections.” With more information comes more knowledge. Also, it’s no different than a super-strain. When you take antibiotics for an infection, the end result is that the infections can get bigger and more virulent. But without antibiotics, people would have continued to die from minor wounds all of this time.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Cougars is actually a reference to Emmanuel Macron’s penchant for older women.

      His wife is 20 years older than he is.

      And a couple of years ago, he hit on the Australian Prime Minister’s wife (who was also about 20 years older than he was) at a dinner party in Australia.

      I’ve had a problem with Francis ever since he was elected.

      When he was first elected, I had dreams for about 6 weeks afterwards that he was under the influence of the Devil.

      Then I told myself to ignore these dreams and give him the benefit of a doubt.

      Then starting about 2015, I started to seriously wonder if the initial dreams I had weren’t accurate.

      Then things he said and did since then, I’ve become more and more convinced of that.

      Being a mystic in very materialistic inclined times isn’t easy.

      That’s why I write my ideas in the form of fiction so that people don’t start thinking that I’m nuts which is the first inclination most people have when they encounter a mystic in today’s world.

      • Marlapaige said,

        I don’t think you’re nuts, but I just simultaneously thought of Jim Henson, Van Morrison, and Sean Penn. None of which has anything to do with what you wrote.

        I forgot about Macron’s interest in older women. i don’t follow that closely, but Tracey Ullman got another show a few years back and covered it. When the show went off, I forgot all about his interest in older women. There were much bigger things to be concerned about, namely a pig-headed orange brute who tricked a nation into believing that a lying conniving jackass was the best choice for the highest office.

        I do not have any personal affiliations with the Pope, so I do not share your strong emotions about him one way or the other. But out of curiosity, what made you believe he was aligned with the Devil? As someone not particularly versed in this subject, he always sort of seemed down-to-Earth.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I don’t know why I dreamed that he was aligned with the Devil when he was first elected.

        I didn’t know anything about him.

        That’s why after about 6 weeks, I sort of had to convince my mind to stop dreaming about him.

        Then whenver he did interviews with the Marxist co-founder of La Repubblica newspaper from about 2015 on, he always ended up denying some doctrine of Christianity and I thought how did this guy ever get to be Pope?

      • Marlapaige said,

        As I said, i am not well versed in this. what doctrines has he denied? I know he said that Vatican II was to be followed and he said something about hell not existing, but other than that, i’m honestly not informed enough to fully grok what you’re saying

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        In one interview with Eugenio Scalfari, he denied Jesus’ Incarnate Deity and in another interview, he denied Jesus’ bodily Resurrection.

      • Marlapaige said,

        I was unaware of both of those things.
        Is it presumptuous to think that you are Christian after these conversations? p;lease don’t feel pressured to respond, it is merely a question.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,


      • Marlapaige said,

        That makes sense as to why you would follow it so closely. I myself am spiritual but I do not believe in any particular thing. I was raised in a Jewish and Roman Catholic (Vatican I) family and came out believing in something more akin to the Tao. The specifics of the Popes statements tend to elude my attention overall. Same with all religious orders.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I once took a course in Asian Philosophy and studied Taoism.

        I always thought the German philosopher Hegel plagiarized Taoist philosophy and did a piss poor job in his plagiarism in much the same way that Quentin Tarantino plagiarized themes from Japanese and Korean movies.

      • Marlapaige said,

        It is interesting. One calls it plagiarism while other may believe it to be the highest form of flattery. Different vies an all that.

        I’m sorry, but I have to done eleep. I’ll take w you tomorrow

        Good night!

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Have a good night.

        I know my friend Judy Eun Kyung Kim has a problem with Quentin Tarantino stealing his ideas from Japanese and Korean film.

      • Marlapaige said,

        Actually, so does Bruce Lee’s daughter from what I’ve read. She was upset about thebride wearing a yellow suit and something about the fighting in the scene but it’s too early for me to recall

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, Shannon Lee is really letting Quentin Tarantino have it.

        And deservedly so.

      • Marlapaige said,

        I used to like him a lot… but there’s just too many things to have to overlook to keep being interested in him. Plus he retired, so that makes it easier.

        my dad loved Bruce Lee movies. Not really, he started liking them when he got YouTube. He would be amazed at Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan and how fast they could move. He’s come down very strongly on the side of Shannon Lee, although I’m not sure he knew who she was before this whole thing.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I always liked Bruce Lee.

        In addition to his martial arts films, I also saw him in a Hong Kong made film production of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations where he played the role of the hero Pip.

        He appeared in it when he was only 14 and he did a tremendous acting job.

        Therefore I always felt that given the chance and had he lived, he could have played a wide range of dramatic (and even comedic) acting roles that went well beyond his obviously superb martial arts skiils.

      • Marlapaige said,

        Yes. He was exceptional. I never saw him in Charles Dickens though. That would be really neat. But all I’ve ever really able to see much of him outside of his us theatrical releases because that’s all there was by the time this legend burst on scene.

        The one thing I remember most vividly from when I was a kid was that he knocked some guy clean across a room but never seemed to move. They had to slow it down like 30 separate times so you could see him look like he flinched. It was breathtakingly fast.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, Lee was fast.

      • Marlapaige said,

        As I said I have a lot of reasons not to like QT, including this new mess, but he did steal from the best. It’s not like he found the worst possible choice and stole that. he only stole the best.

    Very interesting discussion that you have going on. I think the Pope had declared that other religions are equally valid, in some interfaith dialogue about 2 years back.

    It is hard to ignore the allegorical/metaphorical aspects of most religions. Also newer ones borrowed heavily from pagan rites. Exorcism is itself a variant of shamanic rituals. And why do Muslims worship a black stone in Kabah? Many festivals are around some astronomic phenomenon.

    R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, who studied the temple of Amun-Mut-Khonsu at Luxor, Egypt, and wrote “The Temple of Man” from this research, says the Biblical statement in Genesis that God made man in His own image, means that we are a reflection of the cosmos.

    This is also the basis of Ayurveda, the Indian system of medicine.
    As is the atom, so is the universe
    As is the human body, so is the cosmic body
    As is the human mind, so is the cosmic mind
    As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm

    Jesus’ statement that the meek will inherit the earth, is the same as the Hindu belief, that one has to forgo his ego to achieve Moksha.

    Many Catholic priests in the non-western world don’t accept Heaven and Hell, the way the Renaissance artists painted. Or assume partaking in the Holy Communion is same as eating the body and blood of Jesus Christ. They take it as symbolic of a person aligning himself with the teachings and spirit of Christ.

    The Pope is in a hard place, technology and alternative/pagan beliefs have reduced the faith of his flock. Even within the Catholic community what the Pope teaches and believes in are not exactly what the Catholics believe.

    As for the COVID vaccine, faith leaders, army generals, actors and actresses, prime ministers, and presidents have been pressurized to push the vaccine. What will the poor Pope do? He has no choice. It is up to the people to figure out why the leaders have been made to push the vaccine when the leaders neither understand the “novel disease” or the “science” behind the vaccine.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Very interesting exposition of shamanism, the Kabah stone, Egyptology, Indian medicine and Hindu philosophy you’ve included here.

      I always have found the history of world religions and studying the mythologies of the world so very interesting.

      I was going get my Master’s Degree in the Philosophy of Religion and write my Master’s thesis on Jung’s Theory of the Collective Unconscious if the idiots in the Faculty of Grad Studies at the University of Alberta hadn’t lost my letters of recommendation and then neglected to inform me until it was too late for me to get in.

      The moving finger writes as Omar Khayyam once wrote and due to life and its various mishaps (to say nothing of a neurotic and totally mentally unbalanced mother) getting in the way, I wasn’t able to go down that path again.

      Yes, religion does have metaphorical and allegorical aspects to it but literal as well I believe.

      The heresy of Modernism in the Catholic Church as Pope Saint Pius X was to define it was an inherent anti-Supernaturalism and to reduce everything in religion to a metaphorical and allegorical level (as the Freemasons do).

      Thanks to my Celtic ancestral background, I happen to believe in the actual literal existence of elves, gnomes, leprechauns, fairies, wood nymphs and water nymphs (as did J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis) .

      They exist in other realms and occasionally intersect with this one.

      That’s why after people get to know me, they start thinking I’m nuts until after associating with me for awhile and things start happening to them in their own lives which would force them to give up their own philosophical worldviews, they just stop associating with me.

  5. voodooville said,

    It is good that you have kept your Celtic ancestral beliefs.
    Catholic Church and in fact other Christian denominations would have had an inherent anti-Supernaturalism bias right from the beginning. The only supernaturalism allowed was limited to miracles by the Prophets, and Saints. Anything else, including special capabilities given to humans by God, were probably regarded as Devil’s handiwork.

    Modernism, technology and today’s hedonistic attitudes have removed the remaining fig leaf of any supernatural beliefs. Church is obviously pro-LGBT today. In prior years it was hidden behind sacred rituals and sanctimonious posturing, so there isn’t much difference. If there is a Church, it is just a shell, a few buildings of Gothic and Renaissance architecture, and a few men of character here and there. The core is corrupt. A reflection of society itself.

    You are nuts, of that I’m certain :). But I like the humor, magic and fantasy you weave from medieval characters, ancient Egypt, elves and gnomes. And I like the way you mix them with absurdities of modern life.

    As for your interrupted education, I’m not sure if education interferes with one’s learning and imagination. Or whatever is it that Mark Twain said.

    However Jung’s Theory of the Collective Unconscious would be a good thing to research on, rather unfortunate that you couldn’t do that.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, I agree with you, the Church today is corrupt at its core and is a shell of its former self.

      I think Mark Twain was right in what he said now that I think about it.

      Advanced education at an institution does not necessarily help one’s learning and imagination.

      And I must confess the humour, magic and fantasy I weave from medieval characters, ancient Egypt, elves and gnomes and mixing them in with the absurdities of modern life I thoroughly enjoy doing.

      A friend of mine who’s a former employee of DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) who, I guess tired of staring at photos of goats to help develop his psychic abilities, says that the geopolitical explanations I offer for the world’s troubles do make more sense than any analysis anyone within the U.S. government can come up with.
