Mayhem Bassist, "Necrobutcher" To Be Exorcised

It should be good for a laugh.
Bob Larson is the wack job that Trey (Morbid Angel) and Glen Benton used to fight with to get publicity.
Larson’s the ultimate fraud…examples of his “teachings”….
If you’re angry, you’re possessed by the demon of anger.
If you feel lust, it’s the demon of lust, etc…. etc….
The whole thing is just crap.
I also read that Larson told one of his members that their son was possessed by the demon of “greed” and forced the members son to give Larson his own car LMAO!!!
And people are stupid enough to fall for this crap?
People need to accept responsibility for their own actions and stop blaming the devil.
If anything I hope Necro puts on a good show, rolling his eyes around, spitting up pea soup.

Those Larson/Benton tapes were hilarious. Glen really laid it on,think he got Larson nervous. This show would be pretty interesting to see. Hopefully this Mayhem dude toys with that loon Larson like Benton did.

As a Christian, I'm not real impressed with Bob Larson.

Matt. 7:20 "You will know them by their works."
What is Bob's intention with Necrobutcher?
Does he really expect to exorcise him?
(Maybe the translation was lost, and Bob shows up in leggings and a workout tape.)
Given past actions, Bob's true motive looks like publicity.
Therein, lies another problem. The purpose of an 'exorcism' would ultimately be the salvation of the soul from the 'demon'. If that is what Larson cares about, then why choose Necrobutcher instead of someone closer or someone who has expressed interest in being saved. Smells like publicity and Larson has little interest in Necros' salvation.
Matt. 6:24 "...You can't serve both God and money."

Does he expect to do this in one shot?
From wiki: "The exorcist often invokes God, Jesus, a litany of saints, and/or several different angels and archangels to intervene with the exorcism. It may take several weekly exorcisms over several years to expel a deeply entrenched demon."

Also, does Larson think 'he' will excorcize the demon?
Christians believe that only God has that power and the recognition belongs to Christ, not Larson.
Where is God being glorified in Bob actions? I don't see it.

Now that MU is the CMU lately I'm outta here. There's enough religion sh** everywhere else. Got rid of one more "demon," here. Christians show up on all the BM and BDM threads and shoot away, and it's so f***ing borning, sometimes miles off and the arguments aren't worth having over and over again. The sh** is f***ing poison. Bad as an R&S board. No rest from f***ing religion. Christians don't need to convince everyone else here about their scripture and "christ." They need to convince themselves. Self accountability rules. This piece of sh** preacher prays on the weak and stupid, and sometimes mentally ill, and that's how he makes his buck. Sorry as I can be to offend anyone religious, but I find religion disgusting.

@post 19 - Get real. The article is about Necrobutcher being on a reality TV show, and if MU had any slant it certainly wouldn't be an religious one.

I think Drum Junkie makes some good points.
I was raised Catholic and was taught that true possession is extremely rare.
According to Larson....one only needs to recite the words...(insert creepy whispered preacher voice)...."IN THE NAME OF JUSUS, I COMMAND YOU TO LEAVE".
And boom, just like that the demon bails.
Hmmmm....doubt it.
The girl from The Exorcist or even Emily Rose would have had Larson for breakfast.
Anyway in the bible exorcism was much more frequent.
Why?
Duh...look at the times.
Earthquakes.
Famine.
Flood.
The ancient peoples had no scientific theories to explain such things so they were blamed on God's wrath.
Same with possession, you let a fart that smell bad enough and you got stoned to death.
"You're possessed, YOU HAVE A DEMON UP YOUR A$$!!!".
BAAM!!!
They started beaming you in the head with rocks.
I'm so glad I didn't live back then.
The demons, the stonings, and no A/C during summer.
NO THANKS!!!

My thought is: Does Necrobutcher want to be "exorcised" and live a truly Christian life, or is he just trying to call out Bob Larson and prove that he's a fake?

Totally the latter. Bob Larson is yet another psuedo-Christian televangelist. Necrobutcher wants publicity. It's just a cry for attention for both of them.

I HAVE to see this!!!!! You can't exorcise someone's soul. When you have reached into the abyss and found you like it there, religious hocus pocus is just not that impressive. Should be really funny though!

Jorn was not nearly swilled enough for this interview...he needs a quality chaperone to ensure that he is adequately tipped-back for the Exorcism itself...

Preacher Bob: In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, we now command that this vile demon that has taken possession of this poor 'Butchers soul be cast out and damned to the etenal fires of Hell!

Microbutcher: What the fvck you say?? Demons?? Which one? Who the fvck are you talking to?? Fvck them!! Ya know what I mean? And who the fvck are you? fvck YOU, ya know? Fvckin guy....

Hopefully the frustration of NOT being able to successfully "exorcise" the "demon" from Necrobutcher will cause the preacher to get so frustrated, his head explodes. Heck, then Necro can take god boy's skull fragments and make necklaces from them! Fingers crossed...


I love (The True) Mayhem. I love Black Metal. And I HATE preachy x-tians.
