Buell connects his cancer to demons

Oh, please no, Ryan. DON’T go there…

‘Paranormal State’ Star: ‘Demons Could Have Given Me Cancer’.

“Paranormal State” star Ryan Buell has been in remission from pancreatic cancer and is now speaking about his experience, which he believes may have stemmed from a demonic encounter. Buell also noted that he began to turn around and heal once he understood the idea of loss and having faith.

After becoming famous for dealing with the demonic on “Paranormal State,” Buell was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the young age of 29. He became incredibly ill and was, at one point, very close to death. He went through multiple treatments but didn’t begin truly feeling well until March of this year, when he had yet another surgery.

Buell, a devout Christian, believes that the demons can kill him. There is no clarification on exactly what happened in Buell’s “demon” encounter but it was a running theme of the TV show which include appearances by infamous demonologist Lorraine Warren. I found the demonic aspects of Paranormal State VERY irritating and potentially dangerous. There is NO evidence of demons in the world; it is strictly a religious and cultural belief. To suggest to people that their house or their souls are tormented by demons is unethical and pretty damn sick and will undoubtedly make a bad situation worse.

I’m glad Buell is getting better because I am interested to see what he will do with his life as a gay man in the Catholic faith. But I sincerely hope he drops these deep-seated gothic religious ideas and does something more productive with his popularity.

    Yeah, if he believed that he would have had an exorcism, not surgery.

    How can one possibly be surprised by this?

    Any self-respecting demon would have just skewered him on a pitchfork to kill him rather than take the chance medical science might keep him alive. Demons are awfully ineffective.

    Maybe he should go to Bob Larson to have the demons of homosexuality exorcised from his soul. Why don’t those guys help each other? They are all in the same business. Are there no professional courtesies?

    So he talks about the fake “demons” that gave him the disease, but not the real doctors that saved his ass. Classy.

    Guys! Guys. Don’t you know that exorcism and demonology are now considered Alternative/Complimentary?

    The Obamacare exchanges in Louisville have a list of good, and inexpensive, exorcists of all denominations.

    Don’t see Dr. Acula, though. He sucks! 😉

    Thank you Mitch Hedberg.

    Please, Chris, tell me you’re joking. ^^

    So, very, joking… but I wonder if they’ll include alt. med. in the expansion of Medicare?

    I hope not, but if you let one anti-science/evidence “treatment” get coverage then it’s only a short time until all the witchdoctors, quacks, and snake oil salesmen come our of the woodwork.

    It probably depends on how alt. it is. Chiropractic with all the trimmings, tai chi, acupuncture, massage therapy and similar stuff are all easy sells. Muti, qigong (Falun Gong), Young Democrat memberships maybe not so easy.

    I’ve watched several tv shows where this woman was a participant, and she, herself, on many of these programs, admitted that demons were present.
