Surely this is tautology ?

A doctor who poisoned his partner in a series of bogus exorcism ceremonies has been jailed for 14 and a half years. Strangely , he convinced the 34 year old that she was possessed , which is barmy .
He " cured " her by reciting verses of the Koran and placing holy water and oils on her skin . Now , isn't the phrase " fake exorcism " rather unnecessary ? What do you think ?

I suppose the difference between a "fake exorcism" and a "real exorcism" is that in the latter the person doing the exorcising actually believes (however misguidedly) that they are doing some good. Reply

I think you are using a word incorrectly and are being unkind to people who have religious beliefs, including the partners in the news story.
By some estimates, there is less than 15% of the World population that does not have a religious belief system. I am not suggesting that this means there's just 15% of non-believers here but I would suggest that a humble person might think that their non-belief might, potentially, be wrong and that it is unkind to urinate on other peoples feelings.

If you're daft enough to believe in a none existent god/demon you're daft enough to believe it can be exorcised so it must be a real exorcism. :)
Yes you're correct.

Fake exorcism? Every exorcism is fake, demons and evil spirits don't exist and neither do gods for that matter, religious mumbo jumbo mate.;-b Reply

Tautology is repeating oneself but using different words according to the O.E.D.. It's done a lot in the education sector, to advantage while explaining abstract concepts in e.g. Physics... Reply

The only way to remove a demon from a person is to tell it to go in the name of Jesus and charge it with the blood that was shed on calvery . Because that name is above every other name those things have bow. I Know this works its part of my ministry Reply
