Sometimes I love spam.

I thought I'd seen it all, when this little beaut arrived in my inbox. Do you think it could be for real? I don't think they have female exorcists -- or do they?

Someone stop me before I click "Reply"...



Honorable

It is with great honor and pleasure that I the President and Founder of the only Portuguese Association of Exorcists located in Fatima, Portugal, wish to introduce to you our goals and objectives in anticipation of your future collaboration with our organization.

In order to familiarize you with the founder I wish to offer you the following curriculum vitae information which will clearly shows my lifelong dedication to this study and cause.

Your past and present interest in this area is of mutual interest and more so to our organization as it is composed of only international professionals in the area and study of Exorcisms.

As a roman Catholic Priest, ordained in the Jesuit Seminary I have now seeked to establish a society where all members would assist and collaborate towards a common goal of continuing study and practicing of this ritual.

We will be promoting the assistance of priests and other practitioners from all religious and non religious sectors in order to provide this much needed and in high demand service to the needed. The society members will be recommended after properly certification from our Society to perform the ritual as it is requested from all parts of the world.

We further intend to hold an annual convention of practitioners in our headquarters in Fatima, Portugal and would be honored to have your presence in this event to be scheduled at a later date.

The International Society of Exorcists, proudly invites you to become a member of this organization and would be very interested in receiving your reply and recommendations as early as possible.

I wish to thank you in advance for accepting this invitation and we are looking forward to meeting with you here in Fatima, Portugal in the very near future.

Best Regards

Fr. M. Humberto Gama
Founding President

I agree hit reply!! Everyone should know an Exocist! You could be introduced forever as "This is my friend Marie, she's an exorcist." Can you hear the ewwing and ahhing now? :)

Frankly, I get enough cred by being able to introduce my friend Marie, forensic geneologist. The first bit gets all the good attention, and they assume she has something to do with my private investigator gig (like we could do CSI-Salt Lake or something.) (Not that I don't know the guy who runs crime scene investigation for the valley; he taught me how to take fingerprints.) (But we'd look much better on television than he would.)

However, perhaps Sharon could be the exorcist.

Tempting . . . very tempting.

My reply would be somewhere along the lines of, "Get thyself an editor."

Huzzah! I was wondering where I could get in touch with the local chapter of the P.A. of E. Ever since my first meeting at a chapter in Seville, Spain (such problems and needs for exorcisms you've never seen!)I have missed the bonding that a good exorcism can give a group of people. Thanks Marie!

No request for financial support? Just exorcism from the goodness of their hearts?
