Evidence of demonic possession at Boston College

Boston College is under fire for bringing crucifixes back to its classrooms. Some of the school's professors and students find the crucifixes "offensive" and a break from the Jesuit tradition of tolerance.

A tolerance which displays a hatred for the Cross of Christ? This is clear evidence of demonic possession. When one of the world's leading exorcists, Father Gabriele Amorth, was asked how one can tell if someone is possessed, he replied, "By their aversion to the sacrament and all things sacred." One of the clearest signs of demonic possession is a hatred for the Eucharist or the crucifix.

Boston College is in dire need of prayer. We should all offer up deliverance prayers for those professors and students whose idea of "tolerance" includes an aversion for the Cross of Christ.

Oh my God, oh my God. Our culture is really becoming satanic.

I couldn't agree more. Why would ANYONE be surprised that an institution which is supposed to be Catholic (Jesuit) would want to have crucifixes in its classrooms? And why the hatred of the crucifix? Do they find the Star of David similarly "offensive"? Or any other symbol of a religious faith or tradition? Or is it just the crucifix which raises their ire? Bizarre.

It goes without saying that I'm not making a definitive judgement as to whether or not a particular person is possessed. But there is, nevertheless, strong evidence of demonic possession when a person finds the crucifix to be "offensive." The crucifix is a symbol of God's love for us. For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son for us. That we might have eternal life (John 3:16).

The crucifix is THE symbol of love. To find the crucifix "offensive" is to find His Sacrifice - His death on the Cross - to be offensive.

The Boston Herald did a quick survey of some Catholic Colleges (especially in Massachusetts) concerning crosses/crucifixes in the classrooms:

Boston College crosses paths with other schools

Boston College’s move to reassert its Catholic heritage by hanging crucifixes in all its classrooms places it in the company of some of the country’s leading Catholic universities, a Herald review shows.

Georgetown went the way of the cross 10 years ago after students rallied to restore the tradition of crucifixes in classrooms. Notre Dame and Holy Cross have long adorned their classrooms with the revered Catholic symbol.

The Herald reported yesterday that BC’s move sparked an outcry from some professors and students who called it offensive.

But while many Catholic colleges in New England have an abundance of Christian imagery on their campuses, a crucifix in every classroom is not always a given as it once was.

A gold cross tops College Hall at Regis College in Weston, but when its classrooms were renovated in the 1990s, the crucifixes came down and never went up again, said Ernest Collamati, who heads its religious studies department.

Meanwhile, at Merrimack College in North Andover, crucifixes can be found in some classrooms but not others. “It’s not a policy to have or not have them,” said spokeswoman Heather Notaro.

Crucifixes have adorned the 59 classrooms at Holy Cross in Worcester since the Jesuit school opened in 1842. “It’s something that’s always been a tradition here,” spokeswoman Kristine Maloney said.

And at nearby Assumption, crucifixes hang in every classroom, even in new buildings. “The college throughout its history has always had crucifixes in its classrooms,” President Francesco Cesareo said. “We have never moved away from that.”
