PEOPLE Magazine on Bob Larson, Oh, sorry the “All American Exorcist” gals
IOW in Larson's narcissism about a magazine article concerning the former “ teenage exorcists” he tries to focus attention on himself.
And no I am not exaggerating this.

I have a dream that, in my lifetime, exorcism and inner healing will finally come out of the shadows of the evangelical church and receive mainstream acceptance. I realize this is a lot to hope for, but with God it’s possible. The current article about our ministry in “People” magazine (50 million readers!) is a huge step in that direction. If you haven’t seen the issue, it’s still on the stands in many cities. Check for the August 22 edition with Jon Benet on the cover. You can also get the “People” app and read the story on a mobile device.
When you get your copy of “People” you’ll find articles about gold-medal Olympians and Hollywood stars like Johnny Depp and the late Elvis Presley. But right in the middle of the magazine, you’ll see a two-page foldout photo of me, my oldest daughter Brynne, and her two friends-the three of them known as the All-American Exorcists. You can’t get more mainstream than that! There I am, holding my cross, and intently, looking straight ahead at millions and millions of eyeballs.
No longer can churches who oppose exorcism argue that deliverance is just an ancient ritual or unnecessary in our time. Critics of deliverance can’t hide behind poor biblical exegesis to disrespect those who cast out demons by Christ’s power. This fair, well-written story in “People” demonstrates the huge interest of the secular world in things regarding demons and the devil. The reporters, photographers, and videographers of “People” followed us for days, asking tough questions. They looked for facts to report this story. How sad that too many born-again Christians want to stay stuck in their religious prejudices.
Read the story. It speaks for itself. Go to the web site and watch the video documentary that “People” produced. (To view ((link deleted) Decide for yourself if casting out demons was just for the apostles or whether it is a viable ministry for our spiritually desperate times. The miracles of Christ are still available today. Deliverance and exorcism are going mainstream. To our evangelical citics I say, “You can’t kick us to the back of the bus anymore.” “People” has put us front and center, by God’s grace. This article is the Lord’s doing and He is making a point. Wake up church, Jesus still sets the captives free!
The article was a puff piece “ interviewing” the three females. He was incidental.
People Magazine, even in his description, is pretty much a celebrity gossip magazine, with the occasional “true crime” story ( some of these are actually halfway competent, though obviously no Anne Rule) added in to give the impression it has some depth. So to Larson' fair and well written” means no criticism or seeing the cracks in his act.
As I expected, the People magazine article was vacuous, a waste of space. The only real interest in it for me was the blatherings of the trio, who judging by the fluff piece might not be all that bright. IOW perfect little puppets and patsies for Larson to parade about and use.
In some small way I am looking forward to when the three young girls actually reach mental maturity and about a decade or so down the line they gain 20/20 hindsight. Maybe Brynne Anne Larson mighty finally find out the truth about her name and about her father. Maybe the trio will wake up/
Naw, probably not. When you are as immersed in the Christian cult mentality as they apparently have been, you ignore the uncomfortable facts and the reality of how brainwashed you are.
At this point, commenting on his grandiosity about being in the magazine would be redundant. His words, such as they are, speak for themselves as to his ego and need to be the object of attention. For me its him doing his same old “look at me” in “ triumph” act that, as usual, never lasts.
It's gonna be interesting after he dies and is buried who will come forward and talk about the REAL Bobbie E. Larson. I have my suspicions as to what may be behind the scenes at his current version of himself and his businesses, and knowing people as I do, over time people begin to realize and face a few things they may not have during the actual incidents.
Oh, and in case you are wondering why I, after all these years, still have an observer's interest in McExorcist, even now when he has been relegated to fringe Christianity with no realistic hope of regaining his former fame, I guess I can put it this way.
I'd like to see how this freak show runs down and ends.
His “best' days are past, his media publicity avenues are dwindling ( even Coast To Coast AM won't have him on any more), he's relegated to a Christian vanity press for his “ books” and the only inventions he's actually created ( rather than “ borrow” from other “ deliverance” ministries) was the tacky “teenage exorcists” and the ridiculous “ skype exorcisms” ( one is pretty girls sell and the other is rather like phone sex chat).
Not exactly noteworthy for the ages.
As George Burns in “ Oh, God” said, “you're better off selling shoes”.
