Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Okay, details on Mike Connell's service.
He preached a variety of messages throughout the weekend, but had a deliverance session at the end of every service. The first night, he preached about the passion and love of God towards people. That no one's love was like it, and I've done a bit of reading, no other religion has your God dying for you. They've got mercy, compassion, enlightenment, justice, and all that, but there is no God of love except in Christianity and Judaism (I'm excluding Hellenistic religions here). Sure, people can say that their gods do love and all, but I've read more scriptures than a lot of people, and there's no evidence of that from them at all.
On the 2nd night, he preached about how spirits can enter the body, and how people who practice spiritism, idol worship and all open up spirits to themselves, when they don't even know it.
On Sunday, he had a major deliverance session at the end of the final service. The last few days, I didn't feel anything at all, and I wasn't slain in the spirit in any of the services. But when he called for the final deliverance, I was reluctant, but I went along anyway. I didn't think there were any spirits in me, but I thought, why not be prayed for anyway?
So as I was waiting, there were people around me screaming, writhing, and all. Some were just coughing, some had no reaction. Eventually, I was prayed for, and I didn't feel anything. Well, I didn't feel anything at first. Then I began coughing, anc coughing, and collapsed on the floor. I was coughing much more heavily, and on the floor. Eventually someone stuck a plastic bag under my mouth when I began coughing really bad, I was like on the verge of throwing up, and lucky thing I didn't eat, so nothing came out except bile and saliva.
I was still very conscious, although I felt things a little more distant than usual. I was coughing like mad, and I was convulsing sometimes. Here's the thing. I'm a very skeptical person. Even seeing all the deliverances and experiencing it before myself last time, I've still got doubts. Those doubts grow when you haven't been delivered in a few years. All those doubts evaporated though, as I was being held down by a lot of people. I couldn't tell how many. A lot of arms were holding me down.
Long story short. Eventually, they cast out the demons out of me. I just stopped coughing and convulsing suddenly, and there was no more manifestations. I stood up, my face with a bit of bile and saliva from earlier. I was given tissue, wiped my face cleanly and later Pastor Kevin prayed for me, and slayed me in the spirit. I went down, but with someone supporting me from the back, slowly laying me down.
Yeah, I got up after a while, and service ended. Linda and Vonny had a lot of demons cast out after service, but i don't think its in my position to detail all their angst and secrets here. But let's just say their deliverance lasted almost 2 hours.
