Texas televangelist tells viewers flu season is not real

Gloria Copeland

In what is surely the most head-scratching theory during this bad flu season, President Donald Trump's faith advisor has denounced the existence of this time of year when the infection spreads-and yet also believes that Jesus gave the world flu shots to battle "the curse of flu". "Yes, you heard it right", she continues, explaining that the flu isn't happening because "because Jesus bore ALL our sickness on the cross".

On a related note, a megachurch the televangelist founded with her husband, Kenneth Copeland, was the site of a severe measles outbreak in 2013. "He redeemed us from the curse of flu", Copeland said in the video posted January 31 on the ministry's Facebook page.

Copeland last week told her viewers to protect themselves with the "word of God".

"Listen, partners, we don't have a flu season... we've got a duck season, a deer season, but we don't have flu season", Copeland said in the video. "He redeemed us from the curse of flu, and we receive it and we take it, and we are healed by his stripes, amen". "Jesus himself gave us the flu shot".

"We know what's wrong with you".

According to their observations and findings, the stock could provide a high EPS of $0.36/share and a low EPS of $-0.43/share. Several other institutional investors have also sold shares of the company. 31 funds opened positions while 77 raised stakes.

Copeland, a co-founder of Kenneth Copeland Ministries in Fort Worth, Texas, posted the video last Wednesday, but the video began gaining social-media traction this week, the ABC report said. "Just keeping saying that".

Praying for those with the flu, Copeland provided an innovative spin to anti-vaccination sentiment, encouraging people to "inoculate yourself with the words of god" by repeating that they did not have the symptoms of the flu. "Put words - inoculate yourself with the word of God".

But in a statement, she said she had some reservations about vaccines for "very young children with a family history of autism", hinting belief in a discredited study that linked vaccines to autism.

Copeland pointed to Matthew 8:17 once again and suggested that it was evidence that Christians weren't meant to get the flu.

Copeland is among the handful of bold-faced names in the evangelical community to have a relationship with Trump, a list that also includes former Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
