didja hear the one about the guy with the shaky hand?

Apparently, a Catholic guy in Charleston consulted his priest about why his hand shook when he prayed. If he'd asked a doctor or a psychologist, he might have gotten a different answer (Parkinson's disease, or repressed feelings of resentment towards the church?), but his priest's response was that the man was possessed and required an exorcism.

This alone would not be news, but the fact that the exorcism was videotaped and that the man is suing the church for ownership of that recording is:

see P&C article here

It doesn't answer the most intriguing question, though. Did his hand stop shaking after the exorcism?
