Scamvangelist Gloria Copeland: You Don’t Need A Flu Shot Because Jesus Already Gave Us One [VIDEO]

Kyle Mantyla reports at Right Wing Watch:

Back in 2013, the Texas megachurch run by televangelist Kenneth Copeland, a member of President Trump’s faith advisory council who recently became the proud owner of a Jesus-provided private plane, was at the center of a measles outbreak that was attributed to the church’s belief that congregants can forego vaccines because Jesus will protect them from illness.

You’d think that given past experience, Copeland’s Eagle Mountain International Church might have learned a lesson, but you’d be wrong, as yesterday a video was posted on the ministry’s Facebook page featuring Copeland’s wife, Gloria, telling people that there is no such thing as a flu season and that they don’t need to get a flu shot because “Jesus himself gave us the flu shot.”

Watch the clip below in which Copeland binds the influenza virus “in the name of Jesus” and advises her followers that they too can avoid the current nationwide outbreak by simply repeating, “I’ll never have the flu.”

    Mental illness is so sad to see displayed like this. Thanks Reagan!

  • Proud MOFO Beaner (bkb)

    I often think of the headline I would most like to see when I wake up. Beside the obvious “TRUMP DEAD; NATION REJOICES”, I think “CHRISTIANS RAPTURED” would be pretty sweet too. From my mind to dog’s ears.

      • RoFaWh

        Is it possible to take a train from the US to the DF?

        • Lars Littlefield

          Not anymore. The last scheduled train travel from the US border to DF was on Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México’s Águila Azteca a passenger train that left daily from Nuevo Laredo and got you to DF 28 hours later. Mexico stopped all passenger rail service 1n the early 1990s. The only scheduled passenger trains left are those that run the Copper Canyon route from Chihuahua to Los Mochis and bac. .

  • ChrisInKansas

    What’s the purpose of this? It can’t just be because they don’t believe in shots. What’s the financial upside here?

    • fkevin

      Most congregants will not have the flu and therefore praise & pay Jesus! Most members who do contract the flu will pull thru because praise and then pay Jesus! The ones who die do so because they failed to adequately praise & pay Jesus! etcetera, which reinforces the behavior of other followers to stay in line.

  • JWC

      This pseudochristianista fake blonde materialistic ScammerKKKuntBitch has human blood on her hands !!! Too bad a bucket of cold water can’t give her the “Begone Witch” purification routine.

      Some poor old gullible viewers will follow her ridiculous bullshit advice, avoid the flu vaccine, catch the flu, and then they’ll fucking die.

      And she will have their unnecessary deaths on her own demented lying bullshitting “soul”, as she’ll have been directly instrumental in causing their demise.

      Fuck her all the way to HellFire and eternal Damnation … that’s exactly what she deserves … she is the spawn of Satan … the purveyor of Evil, and an Agent of “christian” Hatred & Ignorance inflicted upon civilized society to the ruin of many innocent and naive human beings.

      • Librarykid

        I’ve read that the Bubonic Plague followed the Church’s pronouncement that cats were the devil’s animal and should therefore be exterminated allowing rats and mice to flourish who shared their fleas with the Christians who were also told that bathing was evil. Love that old time religion.

    • janey

      I’m 70 and I never had the flu but it wasn’t praying to Jesus that kept it from happening. Just luck or genetics.

  • Treant

    A more scientific answer: The flu shot this year sucks, with low effectiveness.

    However, it provides some resistance to the current flu, if not immunity. Without it, you are going to spend two weeks on your back wishing you were dead, and hospitalization is entirely possible.

    With it, you’re going to be really sick, but hopefully still semi-functional, for a shorter period of time. Hospitalization can still happen, but is less probable.

    I had mine, got the flu, but was actually able to function a little bit.

    Please get your flu shot if you haven’t. There’s still time.

    • William

      I’m not bothered if Copeland’s congregation skips all vaccinations.

      • Treant

        Nor I. The above was for you folks. 🙂

    • Joseph Miceli

      I got the quad shot and it really was effective. I came down with the never ending dry cough for three or four weeks, but I never had the aches and pains nor the fever that so many others did. I am VERY thankful to modern medicine for the flu shot. Getting the flu at 53 is no fun at all!

      • William

        The cough is the other strain of flu going around. The bad one comes with high fever, chills and in some people, nausea and diarrhea. Children seem to get the last two symptoms more than adults.

  • HZ81

      • Lars Littlefield

        Wrong, putz head. The discovery of circumcised 7,000 year-old Chinese mummies and six- thousand-year-old Egyptian mummies, as well as a folk tradition among some ancient West African tribes estimated to be more than ten thousand years-old (depicted in pre recorded history rock art) contradicts the mistaken schema of your fantasy world.

      • Charles Nelson

        Just like Columbus was the first to discover the New World. Those brown-skinned people who were on the beach to welcome him don’t count.

        I thought the Monty Python troupe had settled this when they published the script from the Holy Grail… circumcision is a Norwegian invention, and it was intended as a punishment “as in repeat offenders would be circumcised again.

        And they push no sex until marriage as well as younger marriage ages. Top that off with no birth control for even married couples and it’s a recipe for 1. divorce and 2. poverty cycles. Christian conservatives have the highest divorce rates in the US.

        Solution? BC cheap or free, sex ed, normalization of safe(r) sex, and education for women.

        They want not just gullible targets but dead enders who are stuck in poverty with no way out.

          May I humbly (yeah, sure) point out that shallots are even better, and here in Victoria, BC, the Fisgard Market in Chinatown sells excellent shallots for $2 a pound. The usual supermarket price here starts at $4/lb and goes up from there.

          At $2 a pound, you can use them quite freely.

          They’re grown in China, but damn! do the Chinese know how to grow shallots!

            I, embarrassingly, have a pearl onion fetish. They are so good in stews! My closest grocery stores don’t carry them frozen, so I stopped at the cross-town grocery store (a whopping 20 minutes away!) and bought 4 bags.

            Yes, I’m a lazy ass and skinning fresh pearl onions is a pain in the ass!

          • Nychta

      The problem is that they become a vector for infecting people who (for varioius reasons) cant have a vaccination, who have a compromised immune system, or part of the small percentage for whom the vaccination is ineffective. Vaccination is a herd situation. You need a certain proportion of the population fully vaccinated to prevent the spread of a disease.

      Sued for what? Remember Freedom of Religion, an adult can refuse a vaccine for religious reasons if they want to…and if they die, the church already has some defenses up their sleeve:

  • now this one i don’t get, not at all. the flu shots help the elderly, as well as children. doctors are constantly telling older folks to always get one, or more, every season.

    old people make up the majority of the fools who send these people money, and who vote the way the scammers tell them to when election time rolls around.

    Big Pharma totally wants old people to stay alive, as they are the ones who keep BP rich. same deal with mega-hospital systems. both of those groups are generally rethug donors to the tune of zillions.

    i know most xtians are dumber than a box of hair, but this just doesn’t make any sense. i mean, she’s even allying herself with, wait for it, Oprah! a rich liberal negro who has also fallen for the bullshit of woo, that says science doesn’t work. nope, i don’t understand this one at all.

      Jesus died for your sins.
      Except that he came back to life, so he didn’t really die.
      But he suffered. Except that being god, he knew it was temporary and he was going to come back anyway.
      So Jesus gave up a weekend for your sins. Which, you know, if you’re human is 0.05% of your life, but if you’re an immortal god is, well, no time at all really.
      So, Jesus didn’t do shit for you.

    Was her maiden name Anna Cephaly?

  • Blackfork

    Oh, you stupid ass bitch. You’re definitely NOT a christian, so what the fuck do you get out of threatening the lives of older people — you know, the ones who give you money!! Your faith is as deadly as it is disastrous.

  • Frostbite

    Doesn’t look like Jesus protected her from a stroke.

  • Bride of Trump

    Seems like solid advice.

  • DesertSun59

    These modern day charlatans, the televangelists and evangelicals, have tens of millions of ardent, faithful worshippers who gladly give their cash to these people

    It is absolutely no wonder that 45 is POTUS. None at all.

  • Gianni

    She forgot to urge her listeners to be sure to put the money they didn’t spend on the flu shot in with their next donation. Where’s your brain girl?

  • Ben in Oakland

    Please, please please, listen to this nice lady. No flu shots. Not now. Not ever.

  • Dunkerblinker

    I suggest she not wear a seat belt. Do not look before crossing streets because jeebus.

        Poor Miguel!

        He had quite the sexy flaunt there before that final (unforeseen) Thunderbolt, disguised here as a Hot Orange Bus. …. hehehehehehe …. Must have pissed off the Old Man on one of That Guy’s more wrathful days!! /s

    While I understand the sentiment of many here (and elsewhere) regarding the idea of letter her and her followers catch the flu because of following this scientifically unsound advice, remember this,
    Vaccines not only protect those inoculated, but those around them. That can, and often does, include the rest of us. As many of you are aware, some people have compromised immune systems, or cannot receive the vaccine because of allergies. By making sure that everyone else is inoculated, it’s far less likely for the flu to spread to those individuals, thus saving their lives.
    So it’s not all about “to Hell with THOSE assholes!” It’s also about protecting some of our friends as well.

    • KnownDonorDad

      I know, I know, not to mention their kids, who’ve done nothing wrong. Frustrating.

    • ZRAinSWVA

      Yes, exactly. “Herd immunity” is a huge factor in preventing infectious diseases. National Geographic had a great story in their most recent (fact-based, gasp!) issue.

  • KnownDonorDad

    Fine, get the flu. Just don’t come crying to science and medicine.

  • ZRAinSWVA

    Idiot. I manage medical services for our research community–who operate all over the world. Working with bats? Hell, yes, I’ll provide pre-exposure rabies vaccinations. Similar for yellow fever, typhoid, the FLU (cause we do do flu research)… And, yes, we’ll do titers to check your immunity. ’cause it works, ya know…

  • Joseph Miceli

    I truly and sincerely hope this bitch dies of the flu before she manages to kill any more of the kids in her “flock.”
    It’s up to you, God! Strike her down!
    Amen.

  • I can hardly think of anything more stupid. Not only is it dangerously bad advice, but how is this grifter going to make a living after the only people who send her money (lonely, elderly people) get the flu and die from complications. She’s obviously just not that smart. If she were she’d be promoting healthy options for the to keep them alive and keep sending in part of their SS checks. Evil and stupid is a bad combination.

  • Mike

    Hmm. Do we take public health advice from a crazy church lady, or from the crazy head of the CDC who puts her money on tobacco? The flaky church lady has the bible, but even without the tobacco lady, the CDC has a prohibition on CDC’ers using certain science-y words. Science has a well-known liberal bias, you see. I wouldn’t take health advice from either of them.

  • KarenAtFOH

    JFC!!! I’m laying here in bed next to my partner and we are both recovering from the flu after both having had flu shots, TamiFlu, antibiotics, and OTC meds of all sorts. And we feel grateful for all that science, because hospitals here in SWFL are jammed with old people like us who have the flu, and we aren’t one of them! We might be in the ER or even dead if we had chosen her “prescription”.

  • Bride of Trump

    Did God smite her face?

  • anne marie in philly

    these scamvangelists are fucking tools! and yet dump supporters send them millions of $$.

  • Marides48

    Let’s hope we never have another flu epidemic the likes of 1918 (100 years ago). Jesus wasn’t good for preventing that one, was he?

    • William

      His mother was busy dancing in Portugal.

    • kareemachan

      My grandmother lost half of her siblings in that outbreak. Screw this person.

  • Brian Bowen

    I think Jesus healed us of the flu by giving us scientists and doctors who developed the flu shot.

  • did they have flu in thee day, koo coo 4 ISA
