Unless you're a native of Scranton, Pennsylvania or you follow "real world exorcisms" you've probably never heard of John Esseff.

He's a local priest and exorcist in the city and he has a warning for us all: Celine Dion's kids clothing line hails straight from the devil.


We know Celine Dion is one of those artists some people love to hate, but jeez.

The clothing line does not feature tiny skulls whispering into our children's souls. There are no adorable little horns or demon tails.

There aren't even any mildly-to-moderately questionable goats involved in the line. There are some little rocker-kid skulls and crosses and even a onesie that says "New Order" on it.

But none of that bothers the exorcist. Nope.

Father John Esseff's whole beef with her clothing line is that it's gender neutral. According to the self-proclaimed exorcist, gender neutral clothing invites demons.

People have worn gender-neutral clothing throughout most of human history and dressing children in a gender neutral way was the norm up until the time some of our parents and grandparents were children. Dressing gowns were the order of the day for a long time—and with good reason.

They were the easiest way to tend to a childs' sanitary needs.

Esseff himself probably grew up with family photo albums full of pictures of kids that looked like this:

Celine's clothing line features such blasphemous fashion choices as beige and black fabrics and star prints. Oh, and that one hoodie shirt with a face mask on it so your kid can be a ninja (sorry, not available in adult sizes. we already looked.)

Overall the line is filled with basic graphic prints and simple cuts—nothing overtly terrifying to most people. There are complaints that the designers Celine partnered with are a bit "scary" for children's clothing—and they certainly design for a more alternative aesthetic—but "weird" and "not my style" are a far cry from welcoming the dark lord into your baby's crib...

...or are they? Esseff doesn't want people to be fooled. According to him, well ... we'll let him tell it.

Esseff stated:

"People behind this are influencing children to disorder."
"This is definitely satanic."
"There is a mind behind it—an organised mindset."
"The devil is a liar and there are huge lies being told."
"This is being done for money, and there is divisiveness that comes from this—marks of the devil."

Twitter has some thoughts.






Do you think gender neutral clothes are demonic?

Or are you more worried about the prices and patterns?

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
