Video Of Trump’s Spiritual Adviser Praying For Satanic ‘Miscarriages’ Goes Viral; She Responds: Smacks Critics, Cites Bible Verse

A video pushed out by a left-wing group of President Trump’s spiritual adviser Paula White praying for “all satanic pregnancies to miscarry” has gone viral, racking up over 8 million views over four days and prompting accusations of supposed hypocrisy on abortion from critics. But, in a statement Sunday, White said everyone can calm down, she was “clearly” speaking metaphorically.
The Washington Post reported on the big “miscarriage” controversy on Sunday:
In video of the Jan. 5 sermon, posted by the liberal advocacy group Right Wing Watch, televangelist pastor Paula White 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. …
White’s words are largely being interpreted literally — that she wishes for evil women to have miscarriage…
“Presidential spiritual adviser Paula White takes authority over the marine kingdom, the animal kingdom, and all ‘satanic pregnancies’ that seek to harm Trump or the church,” Right Wing watch captioned the video.
In a tweet posted Sunday, White issued what she described as a rare response to critics, explaining that her comments were “clearly” taken out of context, being interpreted literally rather than figuratively. For more biblical context, White cited a New Testament reference to fighting a spiritual, rather than a physical battle.
“I don’t normally respond but clearly this has been taken out of context,” wrote White. “I was praying Eph 6:12 that we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Anything that has been conceived by demonic plans, for it to be cancelled and not prevail in your life. That is- any plans to hurt people.”
“Let’s be clear what is really going on … ,” she added, “this is a disingenuous attempt to use words out of context for political gain.” She closed out the two-tweet statement by declaring, “I will just keep praying!”
The New King James translation of Ephesians 6:12 reads: “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Among the blowback cited by the Post is a tweet by a prominent Jesuit priest, James Martin, who wrote: “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.”
Trump’s relationship with the Christian community, particularly prominent Christian voices, has been the subject of many reports in recent weeks after Christianity Today published an editorial in December declaring that “Trump should be removed from office.” The editorial set off a public feud between the magazine and The Christian Post and was met with strong responses from both Trump and Franklin Graham, whose father founded Christianity Today.
