BBC Reports On Teen Exorcists

As I've previously reported, the three daughters of crackpot exorcist Bob Larson, whose clips have appeared here for years, have gotten their own reality show. Today the BBC talks to the girls.
"Every single country has a specific kind of demon," says Tess, 18, who loves music and reading. They believe that the UK in particular is a hotbed for "witchcraft", because of the popularity of J K Rowling's Harry Potter books. "The spells and things that you're reading in the Harry Potter books, those aren't just something that are made up, those are actual spells. Those are things that came from witchcraft books," says Tess. The teens see themselves as "freedom fighters". During an exorcism they brandish silver crosses and Bibles while confronting the so-called demon to make it return to hell. "I'd have to say my special skills [are] probably the enforcer or the lead exorcist. I can take on those demons," says Brynne. The teenage exorcists are greeted on stage as if they were celebrities. There is applause and they announce to the audience that they look forward to "kicking some demon butt". But Brynne denies that it's a theatrical performance.
