Mark Twain was 'Demon-Possessed' Claims Pastor Kevin Swanson

Pastor Kevin Swanson appeared on the "TruNews" radio program with host Rick Wiles yesterday and claimed that Mark Twain was possessed by demons, but did not provide any actual proof.

Swanson was angry because Twain's book "Huckleberry Finn" portrayed Christians in the South of supporting slavery, which many actually did, notes RightWingWatch.org.

“Huckleberry Finn is a constant attack on the Christian church for its position on slavery in the Southern states. He mocks Christianity throughout and Huckleberry Finn is an atheist himself, who is abandoning the faith and then finding multiple reasons throughout his journey to oppose the Christian faith. He points out hypocrisy everywhere," said Swanson.

Swanson later attacked "Letters from the Earth," a book written by Twain, who was critical of the hypocrisy of Christianity in his writings as he was in life.

“Mark Twain himself I believe turned out to be demon-possessed at the end of his life, within three years of dying, he wrote Penning Letters from Satan to the Archangels and he instructed his daughter not to publish the book ever because it would get him into trouble. It was finally published in the 1960s and is one of the most acidic, horrific, evil books I think ever, ever written by any human being in the history of mankind," claimed Swanson.

While Twain was critical of religious hypocrisy, he also went to church services at a Presbyterian church and reportedly paid for a black man to go to a university and become a minister.

How judgmental of him. Some people like to cling to common sense and logic.

How does one confirm demon possession? Mark twain is one of my favorite quotable quote types. :-) Also, not sure why the article had to close with his church-related activities as defense; or does even right wing watch not want to rock the boat with the possibility of a godless man of influence?

He wrote some good satire about the church and Bible stories, this guy just has a big stick up his butt, I'm pretty sure if there was some huge conspiracy to cover up demon possession I would know about it, seeing as I'm his great great niece
