    TORONTO – Evangelist Bob Larson and his posse of Buffy the Satan slayers are getting their own reality TV show.
    our editor recommends




    Canadian indie producer Cineflix is developing the series All-American Girls Fighting Satan, about five teen girl exorcists training to cast Beelzebub’s black-winged minions from the lives of ordinary Americans under the tutelage of Reverend Larson of the Spiritual Freedom Churches.
    The five cross-wielding teens are Brynne Larson, daughter of Reverend Bob, sisters Savannah Sherkenback and Tess Sherkenback, and Christina Massih and Melanie Massih.
    The series, being developed by Simon Lloyd and Joe Houlihan, will feature the five teenagers at Reverend Bob’s school for exorcists, saving troubled people from Satan while their peers are partying.
    Cineflix added that, while the five teens are not fending off evil in suburban America, they find time to attend beauty pageants, or play sports like horseback riding and karate.
    “The girls and the Reverend Bob believe they are on a God-given mission to save the souls of the possessed,” Cineflix said in a statement Monday.

    What they don't get is that this is likely going to mock them quite heavily.

    Jeez, it sounds like they might be getting letters from people with real 'demons' here. How much damage could these idiots do to people with mental illness/depression

    Teen Exorcists Shopping Reality Show Can’t Possibly Be Faking

    A trio of teens say they're such seasoned exorcists that they're able to tell just by looking at someone whether or not the devil resides within. Their reverend mentor says they've exorcised scores of people in their young lives. I say that watching them explain all of this to Anderson Cooper is like a Mean Girls fever dream, but with robots and curling irons.
    The Teen Exorcism Squad appeared on Anderson today to talk about their burgeoning careers. Seventeen-year-olds Brynn and Tess and 20-year-old Savannah are the proteges of the Extraordinarily Reverend Bob Larsen, a Texas preacher who says he's personally cast out 15,000 demons during his devilpunching career. The girls say they've learned the fine art of exorcism from him, relying on his guidance as a wrangler of the invisible to pick up on the finer points of kicking the demons out.
    Brynne, who is Larson's daughter, made her exorcism debut at age 13, at a bizarre-sounding event in Africa. Tess followed shortly thereafter, exorcising a 15-year-old friend of Brynne's at a sleepover after noticing that "the devil had gotten some hooks in her." Savannah says she spends hours every week training for exorcisms, and that after all that training and exorcising and devil unhooking, the girls say that they've got a pretty reliable system for telling if someone is possessed that they were happy to share with Cooper.
    First, the possessed tend to have terrible splitting headaches for no reason. Second, pupils of people possessed by Satan tend to "dilate sporadically," like a hypnotized cartoon character. Third, just look for the evil. It's there for the seeing!
    Anderson, to put it lightly, seemed incredulous. Wouldn't you be? The girls sound like they're auditioning for roles in Purity Bear: Fourth of July Orgy. Their talking voices sound as though they're reading their lines from a Guideposts magazine during a special church service for kids.
    Another nail in this stunt's bullshit coffin is the fact that these girls and their mentor are currently shopping a reality show about a trio of teen exorcists. You can't blame them for trying — after all, they've got all the important elements of a successful crazy reality show down pat: teenage girls, extreme religious ideology, the supernatural, senior portrait hair, chirpiness and Satan.
    I'd probably watch.

    Really? You are aware there are a variety of Christians in the world who define their faith a variety of different ways, yes? Many of them not including teenaged exorcists

    I dont agree. I think these guys are cashing in on something that shouldnt be messed with. If they were real demonic possessions the stuff that would go on would not be fit to record much less show on TV. JMHO.

    EDIT:
    Teenage Exorcists

    Airdate : 2/8/2012


    Meet the teenage exorcists.

    For the past year, Tess Scherkenback, Savannah Scherkenback, and Brynne Larson, from Phoenix, Arizona, say they have been purging demons from the possessed. But it's nothing like anything you've seen in the movies.

    "I would just say we are like your average girl. We love shopping, we do all kinds of girly stuff, we don't chase boys, we chase demons," said Savannah Scherkenback.

    By day they are serious high school and college students, and in their free time, like most young women, they like to socialize and go to the mall.

    But one day last month, they took a break from their studies and performed an exorcism on 51-year-old Matt Beauvais, a construction worker, who believes he's possessed by demons.

    Before the exorcism, the teens are mentored by Bob Larson, a self-taught exorcist, who has conducted thousands of his own exorcisms.

    "The thing that caught my attention were thoughts of murder, revenge and unforgiveness," said Larson when briefing the girls before the exorcism.

    INSIDE EDITION correspondent Lisa Guererro asked the girls, "Do you guys get nervous before you do this? I know you are still training."

    "We get a little nervous sometimes. You never know what to expect," Brynne Larson said.

    Bob Larson starts things off by pushing a Bible in Beauvais' chest, causing loud screams. But in a few moments Larson puts the women in charge of the exorcism.

    "Get up murder. I break the curse," said Brynne Larson.

    Beauvais believes he suffers from demons that go back generations.

    During the exorcism Bob Larson steps in and gives tips to the women. "Make him pronounce his doom and go."

    Brynne Larson then attempts to cast out Beauvais' demons by sending them to a place she calls the pit. "Murder, you go now. Go to the pit!"

    Guererro asked Beauvais, "What would you say to people who say, 'That's obviously fake?' Do you believe that you have demons inside you?"

    "I had a ton. This is how you get clean, dig in, dig in, dig in until there's nothing left," Beauvais said.

    Exorcism actually runs in the family for 17-year-old Brynne Larson. She's Bob Larson's daughter with his wife Laura.

    "It was something that she really wanted to do. There was a natural interest in it. I love that it was something that she initiated. It was something that she believed and is committed to," said Laura Larson

    "What do people say when they see you, because you are probably breaking all the stereotypes of what people think are exorcists?" Guerrero asked the young women.

    "I think the biggest shock is when they walk in the room and they see braces, teenage girls, sequins," said Savannah Scherkenback.

    Brynn adds, "This isn't just to get media, this is to help others and really make a difference."

    Guererro asked Brynne's father Bob Larson, "Is this a healthy thing for your daughter to do at 17?"

    Larson responds, "Would I prefer her to be sleeping around, on drugs, getting high or drunk? No. She is doing something to help people."

    There's no such thing as a real demonic possession.

    Personally I've always interpreted the 'demons' in the bible to be the negative internal voices of negativity, depression and temptation coupled with mental illness. So many were 'healed' because someone took the time to stop and talk to them.

    How many chronically depressed people have been brought out of a downward spiral because of the empathy/reaching out from another human being?

    I don't believe in 'demons' as described in this article, either, though I do think there are things that happen involving the human soul that are beyond our current understanding.

    They have a website now.

    Charlie’s Angels of exorcists? Teen girls say they’re experts
    Brynne, Tess and Savannah work under Brynne's father, Rev. Bob Larson
    Comments (36)

    video via abcnews.go.com

    While most people their age are studying for exams or getting their first jobs, a trio of girls in Arizona claim they’re helping people all around the country expel their dangerous demons — through exorcisms.
    Brynne, Tess and Savannah work under Brynne's father, Rev. Bob Larson, who claims to have performed thousands of exorcisms over the last 30 years, according to ABC News.
    "We're just normal girls who are doing something extraordinary for God," Brynne told a slightly flabbergasted ABC reporter.
    The young women book their clients through Larson, who claims that 50% of the population is probably affected by demons and believes that his protégés are the world's first line of defense against Satan.
    His girls, who have nicknamed different demons that they often see, say they "know how the enemy is."
    "There's a war going on every day, being waged against us," Brynne told ABC. "Satan hates us."
    During one "exorcism," the young women are shown chanting and shouting at their charges, before pronouncing them free of demons.
    When asked if she was worried they may be harming already mentally ill — not possessed — people, Brynne didn't hesitate.
    "No," she said, smiling. "We do this under dad's supervision. We never do it alone."
    The young women graduated from exorcism schools, which have been criticized for being harmful, ABC News noted.
    But Brynne denies they do anything but good — or that they are too young to perform the controversial acts.
    "After seeing an actual exorcism in person led by us, you will have no doubt whatsoever," she said.
    According to the report, more people may get to see the exorcisms soon. Bob Larson reportedly said he's shopping around a reality show about the girls.

    Theres a video at the link.

    I dont understand why these kids are mostly unheard from for months and then new articles come out repeating the same mess. I dont think the reality show pitch is going as good as they hoped.

    I disagree. And it isn't because I'm a religious nut.

    Would you mind if I asked you to expand upon both parts of that?
