Why in hell are exorcisms still so popular? Joseph Laycock from Texas State University explains :

And a part of the explanation written:

 
So why has exorcism made a comeback? It may be that belief in the demonic is cyclical.
Historian of religion David Frankfurter notes that conspiracy theories involving evil entities like demons and witches tend to flare up when local religious communities are confronted with outside forces such as globalization and modernity.
Attributing misfortune and social change to hidden evil forces, Frankfurter suggests, is a natural human reaction; the demonic provides a context that can make sense of unfamiliar or complex problems.”

The golden age!
When exorcisms take place outside Starbucks and the Pope lays hands on people to rid them of demons.. The golden age indeed.

The paranormal’s golden age is potentially here as well. When mainstream news focuses like a laser beam on devilish subject matter and strange lights in the sky.
It’s a good time to be alive. And if you believe exorcisms are the true manifestation of evil, then to appears to be a prime time to be a demonic entity.
