Courtesy of the Bipartisan Report:
On a recent episode of Believers Voice of Victory, Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis asserted that they need their private jets, with Copeland asserting a true minister cannot talk to God on a commercial flight:
“You couldn’t have done that on an airliner. Stand up and say “What’d you say, Lord? Okay? No? Yeah? And the guy sitting over there, saying, “What the hell does he think he’s doing?” You can’t do that! No, no…”
Copeland and Duplantis also claimed that a private jet such as the one owned by Oral Roberts is essential because it “protects the anointing.”
But the essence of the message from Brothers Copeland and Duplantis can be summed up thusly: Demons are traveling on the commercial airliners we all use. Yes, demons. Copeland was babbling on about how it’s a “dope-filled world” when he finally declared he simply cannot, will not “get in a long tube with a bunch of demons.”
You know at the beginning of that video this Jesse Duplantis guy acts out a conversation that he claims to have had with God, as if there was NOTHING at all insane about such a thing.
And apparently millions of people who tune in to hear this bullshit agree with him.
Holy shitballs the one time that I was standing in an enclosed space where a person suddenly started talking to God, I was in a mental health facility and the guy was having a psychotic break.
Our response was to keep him safe while he went through the episode and then to up his medication in order to control his outbursts.
We did NOT buy him his own private plane.
People are fucking idiots.
