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?

Death is scary. It brings the unknown of the great beyond, whether that's heaven, some other afterlife, or total nothingness, depending on what you believe.

But there is one perk that comes with death: total control of your funeral.

After we've watched a movie, it can be difficult to imagine the film as a project that took months or years to finally culminate into the product we see at the theater or on our television.

But it was built and hacked together, piece by piece.
