This is pure idiocy.
An evangelical preacher demonstrated why Americans are more at risk of getting sick with the flu.
Doctors recommend that children and the elderly get flu shots every year because they are the most vulnerable members of the population to getting sick.
But Gloria Copeland, an evangelical prosperity gospel con artist whose church is based in Texas, told members of her congregation this week that they dont need to get the shots because Jesus already took the shot for them.
Listen, partners, we dont have a flu season, Copeland declared. And dont receive it when somebody threatens you with, Everybody is getting the flu. Weve already had our shot, He bore our sicknesses and carried our diseases. Thats what we stand on.
