    I’ve listened to a few of these podcasts at this point, and I guess I just don’t get the point of them. This guy for example. He’s a “faith healer”. We know this is utter BS so what is learned from such an interview? He just blathers on about total bunk. At best he’s delusional and believes it, at worst he’s a con artist and is bilking people for $$. (Why was no question about how he makes a living?)

    All you need to do is look at his website and see he’s a nutter. I’m not sure anyone learns anything from interviews like this.

    Yeah I’m afraid I have to agree here. Marsh, you are doing good work and I admire you for it, but this guy doesn’t even really seem to know his own mind. He just can’t communicate, it’s kind of annoying.

    Marsh….classic moment.

    Guest: Porno..graphy…how do you say it.
    Marsh : Pornography, it sounds a bit like plausible deniability.

    Right over his head.

    You just know this guy is into hardcore tentacle porn and that’s why he is worried about demons slipping inside.

    Ref the other posts so far. Yes the guest is delusional but we know that when we download the podcast. Its entertaining. I think thats the point. What do the loonytunes reallg beleive. Marsh has go sit in a room with them so we don’t.

    Keep up the good work. Marsh I mean, not the crazy excorcist.

    i find them interesting if at times infuriating. keep it up, marsh. just ’cause it’s bs doesn’t mean that it is not worth knowing ppl think/believe such things.

    I would have to disagree with Erik and Ben, there is value in listening to people fully discuss their positions. If you want to fully understand an argument you have to listen fully to it. This is a classic interview in that the logical inconsistencies come out on their own. You can see his mental process, but the problems also become evident.
    Throughout this interview I couldn’t keep from recalling a line that Mark Crislip often uses “When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail”. In this case, when you’re an exorcist, everything looks like possession.

    I listened this whole podcast waiting for him to say he is the second coming of Christ. Especially after around minute 38 when he essentially begins saying that even the priests he has met aren’t doing the faith thing right. I hope you enjoyed your one true divine experience with him Marsh. Feel lucky it is on the internet for you to revisit.

    As frustrating as it can be sometimes, there is a lot of value to this type of podcast, it reminds me that there are these people out there, but they can be a brilliant tactical tool for those that are married to Douchbag Chopra reading hippies who went out and bought a decal for my wall that says “Breath and the universe will take care of everything else” So yeah I married a hippie, but she is cute so thats ok, but I like to play Be Reasonable as much as I can so she can hear it…

    I guess if there was an actual “discussion” going on I would enjoy it more. But it’s not really a discussion as Marsh is just so damned polite. So it becomes more of the guest just going on and on about his insane beliefs. I wish Marsh would challenge guests a lot more than he does.

    Just my .02

    I guess it would be easy to write off Mr Ziarko as a total crank, if it wasn’t for the fact that he repeatedly claimed an increase in demonic activity, thereby predicting and explaining last nights election results.

    Nevertheless, I would hesitate to take biblical relationship counsel from somebody who a) is divorced (the bible has something to say about that…) and b) admitted to living in sin with his current wife for three years before marrying her. Though it is possible that they were in a purely platonic relationship during that time.

    What astonishes me is how Marsh manages to not get snarky when he is told by those people what a revelation it is to talk to them. Rebello did the same thing. It shows an amazing amount of ego behind all the talk about humility.

    Brilliant that there is a ‘murder’ demon, I would have pressed him on a ‘homosexual’ demon, a ‘obesity’ demon, a ‘drug addict’ demon, etc, seems to him to be a growth industry.

    Also did he give up the taxi driving, (obviously not a black cab), as the guy in the front seat was exorcised of his own kill demon in it. Does that now inhabit a well travelled mini-cab somewhere?, that’d be a wild ride

    ” Does that now inhabit a well travelled mini-cab somewhere?, that’d be a wild ride”

    I wonder if obnoxious drivers have a “rude demon.”

    This guy talks like a politician. Did he give a straight answer to ANY of Marsh’s questions, or did he just say what he wanted to say regardless? I tried to understand his ramblings, but found it very difficult to keep track of the sentences because they went off on so many, many sub-clauses.

  13. #13 by Marla Singer on July 16, 2015 - 02:10

    I thought I would thoroughly enjoy this podcast but the guy was never challenged on his beliefs. Why does anyone want to listen to someone ramble on and on about ridiculousness? Why doesn’t the interviewer point out how insane these ideas are? I can go to church and listen to goofy ideas. I came here to hear someone challenge the goofiness.

    I would really like to meet this man Ben,on a personal level, I would like to show him, The true state of my mind, I am afraid Ben you are lost in your life, your statement about this guy doesn’t even really seem to know his own mind. is all wrong.

    Hi Linda I really love politicians, I always give people straight answers to the best of my ability, sometimes its not good enough but you should praise a man that is freeing people from their bondage’s rather going on about rambling, our line of work is always difficult to keep track of, especially when you are a none believer.

    Hi Eric just want to remind you that Delusional thoughts are often a sign of mental illness, People that know me certainly don,t share the same thoughts as you and I am glad for that, your language would not inspire anybody, you don,t know me your mouth and lips are full of Blasphemy, you should never speak badly against good people, I wish you well in your life ERIC.

    Hi to all, in my line of work to many people I am always preposterous and laughable, JESUS also was laughable, let me remind you that these words are not from God the are from Satan it is your choice how you see people but the Lord knows me better. I really appreciate your comments sorry to have let your followers down. Next time Marsh I will be better prepared thanks.
