Popular televangelist says you can’t get the flu if you get Jesus

(ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH) – Never mind thinking there’s a flu season – a popular televangelist in Texas says there’s no such thing.

In a video on Facebook posted at the end of January,Gloria Copeland said: “We’ve got a duck season, a deer season, but we don’t have a flu season.”

The U.S. is facing one of its deadliest flu seasons in recent years. Copeland, who was part of Donald Trump’s evangelical advisory board during his campaign, also said that Jesus is a form of the flu shot.

 “Jesus himself gave us the flu shot, he redeemed us from the curse of flu,” Gloria Copeland said. “We’ve already had our shot, he bore our sicknesses and carried our diseases. That’s what we stand on.”
