An exorcist has claimed that he once saw a woman throw a man twice her size across the room as he tried to “remove her demon”.
Pastor Bob Larson says he has performed more than 40,000 exorcisms in a career spanning several decades.
Many of his most bizarre rituals are shown on his YouTube channel .
But, in an exclusive chat with Daily Star Online, Bob revealed one exorcism that was so terrifying it didn’t even make its way online.
“I have seen extraordinarily violent displays of behaviour,” he told this site.
“I have seen a 90lbs (40.8kgs) woman pick up a 200lbs (90.7lbs) man and throw him across the room.”
The pastor – who performs exorcisms across the US in his “Spiritual Freedom Churches” as well as across the globe – said the troubled woman was usually “very docile”.
He added: “She was mentally troubled but in this particular case it was more than a mental health issue.
“These are very dramatic outbursts. It is when we confronted the demon and told the demon to leave the women, that’s where the retaliation took place because the woman was fighting to take control of her.”
Bob has previously told this site about another ritual that saw a woman having to be restrained by nine men.
Footage on his YouTube channel showed “possessed” Katchia trying to attack the pastor but being held back.
Exorcisms are often subjected to ridicule by sceptics, who claim they can be easily faked.
But, in his exclusive interview with this site, Bob dismissed the critics.
“I have been doing this for 40 years, is it really possible that there are that many people that I could have deceived?” he asked.
“If this wasn’t authentic, surely people would have noticed?”
If it were a hoax, the pastor added, it would be the “greatest hoax ever perpetrated”.
