Rev. Paula White #fundie ibtimes.com

In one of the more unexpected leaks to come out of the White House lately, a newly released video shows President Donald Trump’s spiritual adviser leading a prayer for “all Satanic pregnancies” to end in miscarriage. Unsurprisingly, this has sparked both outrage and confusion from Trump’s supporters and critics alike.

During a sermon on Jan. 5, Special Adviser to the White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative Paula White railed against “witchcraft” and called for “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 can be heard in the short video.

Some have taken White’s words literally as calling for the termination of particularly pregnancies, an unusual act given both White and the White House’s firm stances against abortion.

White has faced backlash on Twitter over her sermon, with some Christian leaders condemning her remarks. In one case, Jesuit priest James Martin tweeted that “no pregnancies are Satanic. Every child is a gift from God.”

Others, including White herself, have said that she was speaking metaphorically, and was instead making a reference to “demonic plans” which White intended to undermine with prayer. White also said that critics of her sermon were employing “a disingenuous attempt to use words out of context for political gain.”

Although White has only been with the White House since last October, she has known Trump for nearly 20 years. Before becoming Trump’s personal pastor, White made a name for herself as an outspoken televangelist from Florida. She is a well-known advocate of the prosperity gospel, which essentially equates material and financial success with a sign of being in God’s good graces.

the Darsgah Jihad-o-Shahadat group #fundie ibtimes.com

Pampers is facing outrage over a picture on their packaging after a Muslim group alleged they see the word "Mohammed" spelled out in the whiskers of the nappy brand’s cartoon cat mascot. Muslims in India were filmed burning piles of Pampers products and called for a boycott of the brand, reports said Thursday.

The lines illustrating the whiskers, nose, mouth and left eye of the smiling feline that appears on each nappy and on the brand’s packaging allegedly closely resembles the Islamic prophet “Mohammed’s” name when written in Urdu or Arabic.

According to several reports, members of the Darsgah Jihad-o-Shahadat group went on to lodge a formal complaint with police in the Indian city of Hyderabad on Tuesday over the alleged "insult" to Islam.

Several videos emerged of activists burning packets of Pampers Baby Dry Pants in protest in the streets of Hyderabad.

In a formal letter to police, the Muslim group claimed the "name of Prophet can be seen printed" on the packet in Arabic "even with the bare eye," adding it had "hurt the feelings of the entire Muslim community."

"Therefore we request your goodself to kindly immediately intervene into the matter forthwith and stop the sale and distribution of Baby Dry Pants of Pampers Company and take action against its manufacturers [sic], arrest them and punish them," the letter added.

One of the complainants, a member of the Muslim group, Shahnoor Khan, told the Deccan Chronicle the group believed the company "deliberately printed" the word on each nappy to "hurt the Muslim community" and thus spark community unrest.

Reactions on social media regarding the boycott were varied. While some joined the call for a Pampers ban, others insisted the cartoon was just an innocent drawing of a cat which was taken out of context.

One of the users, Nasar Alam Khan wrote: "Please request every Muslim brother and sister to boycott this product. It’s the only way to prove our strength and the love for our Prophet."

Another named Imtiyaz Naikoo commented: "Please grow up. It’s a cat with two eyes and a mustache."

While Azam Shariff said: "Maybe it’s the fault of the creative team but whatever the case is, directly or indirectly, it’s manifesting the name of (our) holy Prophet. That is a sheer desecration, it’s insulting. Don’t use the products until they change this, until they apologise."

On its website, Procter and Gamble say it is a global brand that has "served millions of babies since its launch in the Arabian Peninsula."

Procter and Gamble senior communications manager Scott Popham said: "I am aware of false and misleading information about Pampers being spread via social media channels such as Facebook and YouTube. The design on the Pampers Baby Dry Pants shows an innocent animated representation of a cat. It shows a cat’s mouth and whiskers like it is commonly portrayed in drawings and cartoons across the world, especially by little children."

"The intent behind the use of this cartoon is completely innocent and we would never intend to offend any person, religion or cultural belief. As a responsible corporate citizen, we respect all religions, cultures, customs and beliefs," Popham added.

North West Illuminati Rumors: Why Did Kim and Kanye Name Baby After A Direction?

It’s been long rumored that Kanye West was a follower of the secret group called the Illuminati, which would also mean he was a member of the Freemasons or a satanist. Since TMZ reported on Thursday that he and girlfriend Kim Kardashian named their daughter North West, Twitter has been going wild posts claiming that the baby was named after the Illuminati.

How exactly could anyone come to this conclusion? Some pointed out that northwest on compass points to 333 degrees, which is half of 666 -- the number of Satan. Others said north and west on a compass make a 90-degree triangle, which is an Illuminati symbol. There were a few Twitter users who simply said northwest is the direction to hell.

The Illuminati rumors following the reveal of North West’s name might be a shock for the Kardashian family, who probably were thinking fans would have been most surprised the reality star didn’t give her daughter a K moniker. West and Kardashian haven’t officially announced the name of their child, but a friend recently told Us Weekly that the name of baby Kimye wasn’t going to be what everyone expected: “They're not quite ready to announce the name yet … But the name definitely does not start with a K, despite all the rumors that have been out."

The child already has a nickname apparently, Nori, and no middle name, according to the celebrity magazine. It’s been rumored for months the couple was going to choose North.

This isn’t the first time a celebrity baby name has caused ire. Some said that Blue Ivy backwards, or Eulb Yvi, was the name of Lucifer’s daughter in Latin. While none of these celebrities have ever acknowledged the rumors, the Illuminati conspiracies continue to spread throughout the Internet.

Here’s what the Twitterverse said about the Kardashian-West baby name:
