An expert in the power of the devil, Father Michael (pseudonym) who has been the exorcist for his diocese for 10 years warns that Walmart is selling satanic products which he believes trivializes evil and puts people at risk.
Walmart's online catalog has 22 pages of demonic merchandise. They also carry Christian items as well. As a private business they can sell whatever they wish but according to this exorcist they have sold their soul.
He believes that just as religious objects connect the owner to the Virgin Mary or with Jesus, wearing something with satanic iconography invites the demonic into that person's life.
“If you have a picture of Satan on your chest, he’s going to pay attention to that,” Father Michael explained. “When people join cults and do blood oaths, they really do bind themselves to Satan but this, [buying satanic products] in a way, opens you up to his influence. You are also promoting it so others can see it. It’s clearly not God’s work.“
Father Michael is not sure if Walmart is selling this demonic merchandise intentionally or out of ignorance but ultimately he believes "they are responsible for spreading evil".
According to Father Michael, Baphomet the goat-headed image that is used to symbolize the Church of Satan is a high-ranking demon which during exorcisms has manifested from the possessed person.
He said. “Demons keep the rank they had before they fell. Just as there are nine choirs of angels, there are nine choirs of demons."
According to Father Michael many times those who come to him for help don't understand how they attracted a demon's attention, and unfortunately once the door has been opened it's very difficult to close. “People don’t always realize how dangerous the things they’ve been doing are, or they have a hard time letting it go. It doesn’t always happen all at once; it’s a process of conversion. Just because someone wants the demons to leave doesn’t mean they will. It can be hard to get rid of them.”
He described where demonic attacks might start on a psychological level, and then escalate to physical attacks and strange occurrences around them. They can hear voices saying, "We aren't leaving you... you belong to us... you'll never get rid of us".
He warns that the first step in seeking relief is to stop involvement in anything occult, including what they wear, anything decorating the space they live in and of course any dark practices. Items should be burned as they might have been cursed and act as a portal for evil.
