By the power of the three...

Most Haunted is on the telly just now, and I haven't bothered to turn the channel over. Something really interesting caught my ear.

They're trying to invoke Satan and a load of demons, which strikes me as a rather stupid thing to do (they'd get a shock if something actually happened!). But what caught my ear is that they used an ancient spell of protection from a tradition I've never heard of, and then proceeded to call Satan "in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost... the one who is three".

Most Haunted is a con - I'm convinced it's all a setup, but I thought it was really interesting that they would use such a strange mix of spiritual traditions. In a time when people think religion's a load of rubbish, but are quite happy to believe in spirits and ghosts, it's odd to hear one called forth in the name of a God that people say doesn't exist.

Anyone remember Shirley Ghostman?
