Time to whip out the holy water because things are about to get weird. A priest has accused Celine Dion of promoting satanism following the launch of her gender-neutral clothing line for children.
The Canadian singer just launched her clothing line, Célinununu, and it looks like the critics have already arrived. In an interview with the National Catholic Register, priest and exorcist Msgr. John Esseff described the collection of clothes as “definitely satanic.”
“The devil is going after children by confusing gender,” he says in the interview. “When a child is born, what is the first things we say about that child? It’s a boy, or it’s a girl. That is the most natural thing in the world to say. But to say that there is no difference is satanic.”

In addition to grabbing a statement from the priest of 65 years, the article continues by criticizing the images on the clothes, claiming that there are Illuminati and Devil references.
“One pair of sweatpants has a number 3 on one knee and a 6 on the other. Three 6’s? Boys are dressed as ganstas [sic] and girls with “Ho!” emblazoned on shirts.” – National Catholic Register
Dion was raised Catholic and has spoken about her relationship with religion in previous interviews.
“For me, God is life itself, the birds, the air, the sunrise and the sunset, the children. Yes, that is where I find God. Not in a church,” she said in an interview with the Toronto Star in 2014.
Although she hasn’t made a direct comment regarding the accusations, the Célinununu website says the line focuses on individuality.
“CELINUNUNU unites two forces by one voice: fashion has the power to shape people’s minds. Inspire your children to be free and find their own individuality through clothes.”
