This seems like a great idea for a show on the CW but maybe not so much for reality.
The Daily Mail reports:
The five teenage girls might look like they’re in a normal class, eagerly reading their textbooks and answering their teacher’s questions diligently.
But the textbooks are Bibles and the girls all have crosses instead of protractors, as they train to become exorcists – real exorcists who fight demons, curses and evil spells.
‘People do look a bit surprised when I arrive,’ admits graduate exorcist Brynne Larson. ‘When people call for an exorcist, they don’t picture a 16-year-old high school girl.’…
We have found that our female, teenage exorcists are particularly effective at curing the possessed,’ says Rev Larson, whose daughter Brynne is a supernaturally talented exorcist.
Highly experienced in casting out demons, saving souls, and banishing evil spirits to hell, she is also a student who enjoys styling her hair, shopping and meeting her friends at Starbucks.
First, let’s hit the mall and then we’ll do a little exorcising? Cool! Lol!
Doesn’t this seem to be a good way to put young girls in very bad situations? But I don’t think this is really about a pastor in search of demons. I think this is all about a pastor in search of a reality show.

Actually, this is beyond awesome. Somehow, Satan being scared of tweens sounds reasonable.

None of them would last 5 minutes in front of a real case of possession.

I do believe the virginity does allow the Holy Spirit, ohhh, more room or space or something to use the person as a conduit of supernatural grace. Of course, I am assuming (hoping and expecting) these young ladies are chaste.

I don't doubt that these young women think they are doing God's work, but attempting exorcisms is completely dangerous. For a supposed pastor of souls to allow these girls to be put in harm's way is utterly contemptible.
To pray for deliverance is one thing; to conduct an exorcism is quite another. These girls are sitting ducks for a fallen angel. God, help them!

You're absolutely right about the reality show. His web site says he did one already and "is currently working on a brand new reality show to be aired soon."

Shouldn't these girls be fighting vampires instead?

Playing with fire.

And the Buffy legacy lives on…

Btw…thanks for posting my link today. It's appreciate on a Friday. When my kid bit me this morning, I thought it might be a bad day…;)

And you're sure it's not a spoof?
August 13, 2011 at 12:03 am
Sounds like they've all watched too much Buffy …
August 13, 2011 at 8:47 pm
not a good idea. rev.larsen is placing these kids in harm's way. and I don't JUST mean physical harm.

Who said they're virgins. Statistically speaking, at least three of the five is sexually active and on birth control.

According to the article it's being run by Bob Larson. A con man if there ever was one. Maybe they can start by exorcising the demon of extreme gullability in these girls.
