During a segment this Sunday on his Victory Channel show, Christian televangelist Kenneth Copeland conducted what looked to be an exorcism against the coronavirus, commanding it to “get out” of the U.S.
“In the Name of Jesus, standing in the office of the prophet of God, I execute judgment on you, COVID-19! I execute judgment on you, Satan,” Copeland declared in a video clip flagged by the Friendly Atheist’s Hemant Mehta. “You destroyer! You killer! … You get off this nation! I demand judgment on you! … I demand a vaccination to come immediately!”
Copeland didn’t stop there, raising his voice in intensity as he commanded the virus to “come down” from its “place of authority.”
“Destroyer!” he yelled. “You come down and you crawl on your belly, like God commanded you when He put His foot on your head in the Garden of Eden. You will destroy through COVID-19 no more!”
“It is finished! It is over!” he continued. “And the United States of America is healed and well again.”
Later in the segment, Copeland confirmed that the virus had ceased to exist at 12:00 pm on Sunday, March 29.
