Autism is not demon possession

Don’t watch this video unless you are prepared to hear the most vile idiocy you’ve ever heard.

In the beginning of this video, the ignorant host calls autism an incurable illness. Autism is not an illness. The word “cure” doesn’t apply to it at all, and to attempt to apply it makes no sense. It’s not just religious fundamentalists who think this way about autism. It’s many people, especially parents who won’t accept their child unless he or she is exactly what they want him or her to be. This is bigotry.

I suppose I can understand a parent’s distress to a point. When you find out your child will not be like other children and will have a hard life, you wish things could be different. You wonder why it happened to you, and you wish you could make things easier for your child, but the answer is not to change him/her. The attempt will only make things worse. Once the initial shock wears off, your resolve, as a good and responsible parent, should be to accept your child and to get to know him/her just as you would if he/she was whatever you wanted him/her to be. You don’t decide who other people are.

The video is a religious program, so it’s possible that this is all staged. None of the events in it may have happened, so take heart in that possibility. Around 7 minutes in, the lady says something interesting. Most of the christians she knew were sad and disappointed in their lives. She might be saying this to contrast the churches she had gone to with the organization that “healed” her son, but it says something about christianity if people agree with it. I’ve heard christians claim that there seemed to be something wrong with every atheist they’ve ever met, so to hear a christian say that other christians had issues like this is very interesting. She’s not claiming that christianity will make one’s life perfect. She’s not trying to convert people to christianity because the audience is already christian. She’s trying to sell the services of the “deliverance program” or whatever it is. She says Yahweh (or God as she calls him) called for her to go there. That’s what the people in the program who called her said, so it must be true, right? Yahweh wouldn’t lie.

Note also that she did not say that the “deliverance session” was free. If it was, she would have said so because that would have been a big selling point. It’s not, so she has to really play up the miracle angle. She needs for the audience to believe that a miracle happened. Also note that in the beginning of the video, the host mentions that the doctor who verified that the child had been cured and that it was a miracle was Jewish. The doctor was Jewish because if he isn’t a christian, that means that his claim that it was a miracle carries extra weight because he isn’t supposed to believe in christian miracles. It’s also supposed to imply impartiality on the doctor’s part.

The mother says her son was described as a monster. When the host asked her what the cure rate is, she says there is no cure (which is true) and that there is no hope. No hope. You have to just live with a monster. Lady, that is a child. He’s a human being, not a monster. Autism is, what SHE would call, a pandemic. She says this with no medical background whatsoever and certainly no knowledge of autism. Heck, she doesn’t even know what a pandemic is.

The guy with a stethoscope and lab coat who they claim is a Jewish doctor, who doesn’t look very Jewish to me but what do I know, says that the boy was out of control and would end up having to be institutionalized. He has an interesting pattern of prefacing a lot of his statements with “I gotta tell ya”. He does this when he states opinions, not facts, and the preface is meant to make him seem more honest, like he’s leveling with us. There are also some jump cuts in there, and there’s no telling what was said in that footage. It didn’t support the case for the boy being beyond the help of medical science, so it was unimportant for the show.

The deliverace session was basically an exorcism. The woman claims that the boy, who was almost totally nonverbal, reached back and yelled “Come back!” to whatever demon was leaving him. Riiiiiight. Also of note is the fact that the video is periodically interrupted by advertisements. At about 12 minutes and 45 seconds in, there is one for a book written by the supposed mother. This is the what it’s all about. Everything this lady is saying is a lie meant to dupe a gullible audience into buying her book. What audience could be more gullible than a religious audience? None. They even promise miracles to those who read it. Wow. Buy this book and magic will happen. They’ve turned autism into a gimmick so they could trick gullible fools into buying magic beans.

  1. It’s interesting how the autism community will try anything to help their children. Spend thousands of dollars on therapy, but a story about an autistic child being healed or delivered from their afflictions seems ridiculous. But, what if God can heal and that he has shown us an example of an autistic boy in the Bible that was cured of his afflictions that seem to mimic autism.

    Mark 9:17-27:
    17 And someone from the crowd answered him, “Teacher, I brought my son to you, for he has a spirit that makes him mute.18 And whenever it seizes him, it throws him down, and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid. So I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able.” 19 And he answered them, “O faithless generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to me.” 20 And they brought the boy to him. And when the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. 21 And Jesus asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” And he said, “From childhood. 22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” 23 And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.”24 Immediately the father of the child cried out[a] and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” 25 And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” 26 And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, “He is dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.

    The symptoms of this boy mimic autism:
    1. The boy was mute. The definition of mute is not able to talk or speech problems. Language disorders are a major symptom in autism. Autistic children may be non-verbal, lose ability to say words or sentences, speak abnormal in tone or rhythm, can’t start or keep a conversation, repetitive words, use screams or cries to communicate.

    There are no specific details in this verse on the degree of the boy’s muteness, but it may have ranged from nonverbal communication to varying degrees of communication problems.

    2. The boy was seized or controlled in behavior. He was forced or thrown to the ground, he became rigid (The definition of rigid from Webster’s is not able to bend, not easily changed, not willing to change opinion or behavior). In autism stimming is common, rocking, spinning, head banging, flapping, grinding teeth. And also common to autism is seizure disorders. Also described above when the boy was convulsing. Self harm is a symptom of autism as well. In the above verse it states the boy tries to destroy himself by fire and water. Also, note that the father says that the boy’s behavior was since childhood, exactly when autism begins.

    The healing for this boy wasn’t ABA therapy, OT, PT, speech therapy, that’s all a band aid. But, true healing came when he was delivered from the unclean spirit or the mute/deaf spirit by Jesus Christ.

    God’s believers have the power in Jesus name to command these spirits to leave and for the autism community to be healed (Mark 16:17). But, just like the father in the verse until he truly believed in Jesus power, was his son healed. The father doubted as the verse says “but if you can do anything”

  2. Awesome post. I have a child with autism and I have often wondered about possession. It nice to see a connection in the bible. God can cure anything with faith.

    • Yes he can. Karen Mayer also wrote a book about this. It is in Amazon.com. The person saying Autism is not caused by Demons is wrong. Obviously the demon did come out so and the boy was healed. Sid Roth is not a fictional “what if” show, but investigative journalism. Kenneth Hagin regularly drove out Demons and people were healed. His book “I Believe in Visions” relates his experience with Demons. If you can’t believe the testimony of the mother, what in the world can you believe.

  3. Since ‘brain transplants’ are beyond -most likely, far beyond- the current limits of medical technology, just how do our calculating Normies propose to get a suitable (codependent) narcissistic extension?

    Answer: by ‘inducing’ a state of *demonic possession / oppression*’!

    By causing one or more ***evil spirits*** to ‘take over’ a give autist, the effect is similar to that of a brain transplant. To witt:

    Our autist become able to discern *in real time* the true calculatingly Machiavellian nature of the social world.

    Secondly, our autist becomes *calculatingly Machiavellian – andconstantly lies, cheats, steals, manipulates, etc, just like other Normies.

    Thirdly, our autist developes an all-consuming lust for – and delight in – power as an end in itself. This will be so much so that all possibilities will be sacrificed to attain, maintain, and increase personal power.

    Fourthly, out autist will discard all true morality, while cunningly retaining the capacity to provide a superficial display of the same *when it is expedient to do so*.

    This is but the beginning of a very long list of the likely benefits to Normie keepers that will ensue when their autistic charges become suitably inhabited. Is it any wonder that so many Norms will stop at nothing to ***forcibly*** insert spirits (by abuse, torture, and other forms of malice)?

Now you may speak.
