Byrd alleges the pastor later bragged to the congregation that he had "punched the devil and knocked the devil's tooth out."

This is one of reasons I tend to not belong to cults.

sloshed_again: And that's why I don't believe in any of the Fairy Tale Religions.

That's not a reason not to believe in any of the Fairy Tale Religions.  It might be a reason not to trust someone who does, and maybe a good reason not to go to church, but in of itself, crazy people doing crazy stuff doesn't provide much evidence one way or the other on the existence of a higher power- although it might suggest that if there is a higher power who created us he/she did it to cast for a cosmic version of the Jerry Springer show.

But that's as likely as any of the other reasons, so again, I say that really isn't evidence one way or the other.

According to the lawsuit, Byrd suffered extensive medical and dental expenses from the incident and will continue to incur expenses in the future.

I hear he's been unable to keep up the payments on the exorcism, and may have to be repossessed.

Assault charge from an exorcism?  Oh this case is going to be fun.  At least something good came out of that hellhole of a tourist trap.
