The diocese of Milan, Italy set up an exorcist hotline to handle the growing demand of saving souls from demonic possession.

Between 2:30pm and 5:00pm, callers can schedule a visit from one of the church’s 12 oncall priests. Monsignor Angelo Mascheroni, chief exorcist in Milan since 1995, said authentic cases of possession are extremely rare. Most of the time his staff deals with wayward teenagers and individuals with various psychiatric disorders.

Commentary: Would it really help a person suffering a psychotic episode to call 1-800-PEA-SOUP and have this guy knock on the front door?
