In a video of the Jan. 5 sermon, posted shows televangelist pastor Paula White, Trump’s spiritual adviser, breathlessly calls on Jesus Christ to “command all satanic pregnancies to miscarry right now.”
“We declare that anything that’s been conceived in satanic wombs, that it will miscarry, it will not be able to carry forth any plan of destruction, any plan of harm,” White said before an auditorium of congregants.
As of Sunday morning, the clip, which was just under two minutes long, had been viewed more than 2.5 million times.
“No pregnancies are satanic. Every child is a gift from God,” tweeted James Martin, a prominent Jesuit priest. “No one should ever pray for any woman to miscarry. No one should ever pray for evil or harm to befall another person. Jesus asked us to pray for our persecutors, not to curse them. To love our neighbors as ourselves.”
Opinion: When will White whisper into Trump’s ear to bring back the Spanish Inquisitions and witch trials?
