A news story about an exorcism that was performed in 1928 starts with this disclaimer:
Warning: The following story contains references to spiritual matters of an extremely frightening nature. Readers with heart conditions, children and those who are otherwise ill-at-ease with detailed descriptions of demonic possession and its associated behaviors may not wish to continue reading beyond this point.
I must be pretty jaded because the story in this article didn’t seem that frightening to me. Of course watching the Exorcist as a movie and seeing something similar in real life would make a lot of difference.
What got me was the disclaimer and I thought it was pretty frightening itself. I can easily imagine any news story on spiritual matters in the future staring out with:
Warning: The following story contains references to spiritual matters such as a frank discussion of God and references to humans having a soul. Readers easily offended or ill-at-ease with a discussion of God actually existing may not wish to continue reading beyond this point.
