Kenneth Copeland on his televangelist show

Televangelist Attempts To “Heal” Coronavirus Patients Through The TV

Televangelist Kenneth Copeland spent part of a recent show attempting to heal his viewers of the coronavirus through the TV, literally, by putting up his oddly shiny hands to the camera and instructing people to put their hands on their television sets before reciting a rather weird prayer. During said prayer, he seemed confused as to what COVID-19 actually is, saying at one point that “the devil’s trying to give me the flu, or whatever else kind of thing he’s trying.”

That smile at the end is somehow more unnerving than the idea of any and all pandemics that could possibly be inflicted on humanity.

If it weren’t bad enough that he momentarily confused COVID-19 with influenza, he also seems to tell his viewers to ignore the symptoms of the illness.

“And I consider not my own body,” he said. “I consider not symptoms in my own body, but only that which God has promised. Only that what the Word has said. And by His stripes, I was healed. And by His stripes, I am healed now.”

Hopefully, he later advised viewers to get tested and self-quarantine if they experience symptoms, but don’t hold your breath.

This comes not long after New York Attorney General’s Office sent a cease-and-desist letter to another televangelist, Jim Bakker, telling him to stop claiming that his useless “Silver Solution” can kill the novel strain of the coronavirus. On Bakker’s show back in February, he brought on a guest who claimed that the supplement has been tested on other strains of the coronavirus and “totally eliminates it.”

Normal people are really wishing that televangelists would stop.

Who’s going to heal Copeland when he gets it?
