A staggering 68 percent of registered Republican voters stated that they believe demonic possession is real. Meanwhile, only 48 percent of self-identified Republicans believe in another equally if not more scary natural phenomenon: climate change.
A few things… defenders of the myth will say that demonic possession is in Scripture. I would argue that real demonic possession is not. I would also counter that climate change is in Scripture too – you know, Noah’s Ark.
But, the point is – is that there is absolutely nothing you can do with people who are more willing to believe in stupidstition than science.
