The Pope's Exorcist Amorth is back on the case of the literal devil

Skeptobot is a long time fan of Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican's Chief Exorcist. Because he's insane. He thinks that Hitler was possessed by the Devil and that possessed people have superhuman strength and can levitate. So I guess he thinks Hitler can fly. But to be fair to Father Amorth, that's pretty awesome.

Anyhow Amorth has been quoted recently saying

"There is a greater openness towards the devil"
and that that medicine and science can’t solve all illnesses, but some are resolved by exorcism, and his colleague Father Pedro Barrajon says:
“Satanism and the occult are in fashion.”

So much so that the article I'm getting this from says
Italy has an estimated 800 satanic cults, with more than 600,000 followers
Who in their right mind believes that Italy has half a million devil worshippers? And more so, if Amorth and co believe that the devil is literal and runs around making people do bad things why doesn't he prove possession if it's so common? Why doesn't he film one of his levitating devil men? Or is faith less fun when you've proved you were right?

It boggles my mind that the Pope is a-ok with this.

Actually, no it doesn't.

While this idiot rails against an imaginary evil, there's plenty of real evil going on in Italy:

This is about a victim of a mafia carbomb who has lost an arm, a leg, and his sight.

Way to strawman Hitler there.

@shpalman: No you fool, 600,000 levitating super human satanists are the real problem facing italy!

@Anonymous: To be fair, he didn't just say that just Hitler was possessed, he thought that all the nazis (and stalin) were possessed. Which makes a lot more sense.
