posted on June 29, 2012

A woman in Virginia is suing the Catholic Diocese of Arlington for allegedly being molested “during a more than two-year exorcism,” the Associated Press reports. The suit only targets the diocese and Human Life International (HLI), an anti-abortion ministry, because the alleged abuser, Rev.
