Lucifer is finally moving into the 21st century, at least according to priest Father Marian Rajchel, who claims he has been contacted by a demon by text after performing an exorcism.
It would seem a part of the teenage girl rubbed off on the demon ostensibly inhabiting her, as the priest was inundated with texts from it shortly after performing the exorcism.
"The author of these texts is an evil spirit who has possessed her soul," Rajchel, from Jaroslaw, Poland, told media.
He added that many instances of evil spirits using smartphones and tablets may be going undetected.
"Often the owners of mobile phones are not even aware that they are been used like this, however in this case it is clear," he claimed.
One of the texts from the demon allegedly said: "She will not come out of this hell. She’s mine. Anyone who prays for her will die."
Rajchel text back saying that he would indeed be praying for her, and received the response: "Shut up, preacher. You cannot save yourself. Idiot. You pathetic old preacher."
"Clearly this young girl has been possessed, and needs further help," the priest said.
Lord help him when the demons get hold of Whatsapp.
