Kenneth Copeland: I need my private jet because airlines want me to take the ‘mark of the beast’

During a recent fund drive, televangelist Kenneth Copeland added to his list of reasons why he needs a private jet.

“The time has come for ministries, particularly traveling ministries, to have some other method of travel other than the airlines,” Copeland said.

“You get into this situation — we’re not gonna let you fly unless you’re vaccinated. Well, to me, that’s the Mark of the Beast.”

In 2016, DeadState published a story featuring evangelical ministers Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis having a discussion about how they talk to God regularly while on private jets — conversations that would be impossible while riding in coach.

The two sat at table when at one point Copeland declared that private jets “are sanctuary that protect the anointed,” adding that commercial airline travel was impossible for preachers in a “dope filled world” and that riding coach was like “getting in a long tube with a bunch of demons.”
