Infamous televangelist who declared ‘Jesus is the vaccine’ mocked after getting a vaccine.
San Antonio megachurch pastor John Hagee contracted COVID-19 back in October after hosting numerous indoor church services that were lax on pandemic guidelines. Speaking to his congregation in November after he recovered, he suggested to his followers that their faith in Jesus is enough to protect them from the virus.
"I bring under the authority of Jesus Christ every sickness and every disease and especially the COVID thing that's sweeping this nation,"
he said at the time.
"We have a vaccine. The name is Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God. Let Him sweep through this country and heal the righteous who dare to ask for it. Heal our church members. Restore them rapidly. Let the name of Jesus Christ be exalted, because He is Lord over all."
Nevertheless, Hagee went ahead and got the COVID vaccine, according to a statement to ABC News from his church -- a move that his hometown newspaper the San Antonio Current slammed as the epitome of hypocrisy.
"While it's true that prayer and medicine aren't mutually exclusive, that certainly wasn't the message Hagee was sharing with his flock last fall," the Current's Sanford Nowlin writes. "After contracting COVID-19, the 80-year-old pastor seemed to imply that Jesus' blessing was all it took to beat the pandemic."
"One only needed to tune in Cornerstone's Sunday broadcasts to see how Pastor Assclown's followers read that message," Nowlin added. "Largely unmasked, they sat crowded together in the pews as a huge choir belted out praise songs."
The old fool. Sitting in his high chair Lording it over the congregation. People who look up to this man of God, Or not, as he has proven here - Because all the hypocruitical things to claim and do. Of all the lies and bullshit this man spews out. Of all the nerve this man has. Hypocricy at it height. This man who claims to be a man of God is no more a man of God than any one of us and we do not sit in high office lording it over the masses. This man who deals in death by claiming his congregation need Jesus and not the vaccine. This man who may very well have murdered members of his own congregation. This man claims to represent God and Jesus. What a lying hypocrit. What a bastard. What evil is this man. What kind of role model does he set others ? What does his behaviour and attitude show younger generations. This is not a man of God. This is not anything to be followed. This is bullshit if ever there was. This is a lying coward claiming to be doing God's work.
But he is not. Such evil.
