Father Rajchel didn’t indicate if he’s attended the recent exorcism training workshops held by the Vatican, but he’s clearly an expert on how evil spirits have switched to new technology.

It could of been your camera. Just like you can play your phone a song and it will tell you what song it is and the artist with the right app.
Incidents like that are what most people picture when they think of exorcism—a personal conflict between a priest and a demon, a lot of drama, “the power of Christ compels you,” etc. But just like everything else, demonic possession has been changed irrevocably by technology. Demons are now being cast out remotely via webcam or cell phone, and the next generation of exorcists take themselves just as seriously as Isaac does.
Carlos Oliveira, a Brazilian Christian exorcist who’s been plying his trade for almost 25 years, first in Brazil and now in Fresno, California, told me that he frequently banishes demons during phone calls with clients. His connection to Jesus Christ, a connection that enables him to drive away evil, can manifest itself on a landline or even a wireless hub.
“In order for me to talk to you—if you are in another state—the only way I can communicate with you is over the phone or over Skype or over the internet,” Carlos told me. “Demons communicate with one another, and they don’t have cell phones, they don’t have internet, and they don’t need that.”

In my experience, the demon is autocorrect itself. It makes me want to do bad things when it keeps changing all my shirt...
Maybe it’s time Father Rajchel upgrades to a textorcism.

Wicked spirit forces have manifested themselves to nonbelievers many times. There are many stories of atheists being harassed by them. So to say that they do not is foolhardy, and lack of either knowledge, or is deceiving. It's probably the former.
