When we think of celebrities, we tend to think of them as powerful, beautiful and, above all, immortal. The fact is, while many of them portray characters that will remain forever immortalized in a media format and imbedded in our consciousness and in our hearts, these celebrities near to Death experiences serve to show that celebrities are just as mortal as you and me. In this list we’ll have a look at how they came near Death and their description of the experience.

As children, we were told that on December 25, in the wee hours of the morning, a jolly old fat man named Santa Clause would slide down the chimney and leave loads of gifts to all the good little children. We were also told that the Easter bunny would leave candy and eggs, the Tooth fairy would leave money, and that, given the right motivation (being loaded on a jetliner), pigs could fly. Well, here is one you can believe, Demons exist, they are all around us, and here is the list to prove it.
Alfonso de Spina, in 1467, compiled this classification of demons, based on German folklore and other European countries. The criterion for this classification was inspired by legends and stories, and as real to our ancestors then as it is to the Church, Demonology, Occultism, and practitioners of Renaissance magic today. Here, I use six of his ten, the rest are mine picks.
Evil is a familiar and ugly face. Rearing and peeking around dimly lit cities and alley ways at night, evil stealthily rapes, murders and tortures its victims. Evil Popes have riddled the history of the Vatican more frequently than most nations have ever seen a tyrant ruler. While a majority of black-hearted, evil men and women are brought to justice in today’s world, it is sad to know that some sources of evil cannot be vanquished as easily as a court verdict. Perhaps more abhorrent than that, is the fact that evil still hides away waiting to take more victims. Worse still is the plagued history of truly evil acts that have been committed throughout all nations. When evil deeds are done in the name of God, they not only scar our histories with shame, they blaspheme in the highest against our benevolent creator. It is only at the very pit of evil where all things are frozen in Hell from the constantly lamenting, flapping wings of Satan do we find places for the men described here. Those who’ve propagandized and spread evil throughout the world while sitting on the Throne of Peter have claimed justification through the Lord. What is to follow may disturb you, upset you and ideally cause you to shed a tear over the tragic misdirection of the evil that has been demonstrated within the office of the papacy.
