Priest Claims Céline Dion's Gender Neutral Clothing Line Is 'Satanic'
Michael Tran/FilmMag

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?

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
