Televangelist Kenneth Copeland has repeatedly told his viewers he defeated the coronavirus since March, healing them through the television, declaring COVID to be dead, and putting up a spiritual “shield” to block the virus.
All of this is ridiculous, but this week Copeland doubled down.
"I was noticing today, President Trump, his beautiful First Lady, without masks. They are immune! They are immune," Copeland said. "And this display of our president giving God thanks… for helping him in that time, and he walked out immune, somehow, glory to God, woo! Thank you, Jesus!"
Somehow, Copeland made the jump from Trump's supposed immunity to immunity for all Christians: "Hey, we’re immune! We’re going through this thing with a Holy Spirit immunity from the works of the Devil!"
