Arizona Pastor Now Performs Exorcisms Via Skype

An Arizona pastor claims he can now exorcise demons from people in different parts of the world via Skype.

Bob Larson, who says he has conducted more than 20,000 exorcisms in his lifetime, showed CNN how he uses the video chatting service when expelling evil spirits. He performed an exorcism from his office in Scottsdale, Ariz., on David, who is from Norway, while the network's cameras filmed the event.

Larson says David was inhabited by four demons but that the exorcism was a success. Despite what some people may think, the reverend says his exorcisms are more than just an act.

"It's real," he told CNN. "There would be no reason to theatrically stage this for any reason. Why would anybody do that? I have no idea."

Larson recently said in a blog post that pop singer Katy Perry has demons.

Perry, who was raised in a Christian family and performed Christian music as a teenager, recently told GQ magazine that she believes in "a cosmic energy," astrology and aliens. She does not believe, however, in heaven or hell, or that "God is an old guy sitting on a throne with a long beard."

"To be who she is now compared to who she was then requires demonic delusion and gives legal right for Satan to control her life," wrote Larson. He also included a message to Perry in his blog post saying an exorcism could help her and that "God isn't finished with you yet."

Larson, whose website says he has ministered in more than 100 nations, garnered media attention several years ago for training a group of teenage girls who travelled the world casting out demons. One of the three girls is his daughter, Brynne, who previously told the Daily Mail that she performed her first exorcism in Africa at the age of 13.

In addition to being a pastor, Larson is also the founder of Spiritual Freedom Church International, an association made up of two dozen churches, and the International School of Exorcism.
