A Romanian lawyer is suing his local Orthodox bishop and four priests claiming they failed to properly exorcise flatulent demons that were forcing him out of his home.

Madalin Ciculescu, 34, accused the five of fraud after they turned up several times to exercise the demons which were responsible for the bad smells that were ruining his business.

He claimed that after the failed exorcism the demons even started haunting him at his home at Pitesti in Arges County in central Romania.

The four priests had all tried and failed to exorcise the demons, according to the legal papers that named bishop Constantin Argatu, even though he had not been to the property, as he was in charge of the priests who had been there.

The case has already been rejected by a lower court in Romania and was rejected again this week by the Romanian High Court, but now the businessman says he plans to go to the European Court of Human Rights.

He told the court: ‘If they (the accused) represent the way of God then God’s ways are crooked. They did not remove the demons that made these bad smells as they promised to do, and I still see all sorts of demons in the form of animals, usually crows but also other such things, that are making my life miserable.

‘When I am at home they switch the TV on and off all the time, they make foul smells that give me headaches and basically roam unhindered around my house and my business.’

The man produced his mother to back up his claim saying that even the hair-dryer was possessed and a black shadow came out of it when anyone tried to use it – and she also said the fridge was infested by the flatulent demons that she confirmed left foul smells about the property.But the lawyer for the Archdiocese from Arges, Anton Alin, rejected the allegation of fraud saying that the exorcism had been properly carried out and they believed the allegations of further demons and more bad smells were simply a product of the man’s imagination.

The Romanian court agreed with the church and rejected the application against Bishop Argatu as well as priests Ionut Cret Ovidiu, Gheorghe Nicut, Marius Dumitrescu and Gheorghe Dunitru – and ordered Ciculescu to pay legal costs.

    flatulent demons humm sounds totally legit.

    Exorcism and possession is a pinhole window into a bizarre and ubiquitous plane of spiritual war. Seeking legal recourse with a matter that hardly regards the worldly avenues of power is a non sequitor.

      Exorcisms are more common in Europe.

        probably understood best and therefore not under-reported.

      Maybe priests should have a disclaimer like ouija boards-“for entertainment purposes only”.

      • kowalityjesus

        lol, priests are sometimes phonies but sometimes extremely good people. I can’t vouch for the alleged monopoly of power over evil of the Catholic Church, but I will say the power of the Holy Spirit dwelleth within.

  • InfvoCuernos
