In a recent Facebook post, well-known Roman exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth said the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL or ISIS) “is Satan,” and he also questioned the lack of response from Western nations.
“ISIS is Satan. Things first happen in the spiritual realms, then they are made concrete on this earth,” he said in an April 8 post on the social media website. Father Amorth continued, “there are only two spiritual realms: The Holy Spirit and the demonic spirit.” He said the demonic enters in “because evil is disguised in various ways: political, religious, cultural, and it has one source of inspiration: the devil.
