Wingnut: Those Who Live Godly Lives Won’t Get Coronavirus

Wingnut: Those Who Live Godly Lives Won’t Get Coronavirus March 24, 2020

“Dr.” Steve Hotze did an interview with E.W. Jackson, who said he wanted to present a real medical perspective, and Hotze declared that if you just lived according to the Bible and prayed a lot, you wouldn’t get the coronavirus. After all, he says, have you tried just not getting it? Genius.

Hotze said that despite recommendations to avoid personal contact to prevent the spread of the disease, “I shake every hand that I can because I want my immune system to be challenged every day so it builds strong health.”

“Am I crazy, or are they crazy?” Hotze asked, rhetorically. “Could I be right, and Harvard and all these CDC guys be wrong? Yeah, because they’re all conventional. They don’t talk about how you can keep yourself from getting sick … Why don’t you just not get it [the coronavirus]? Why don’t you just stay healthy?”

“What about claiming the verse, ‘Let no evil befall me, nor any plague enter my tent’? Psalm 91. Hedge your angels around us to guard us and protect us, to keep us from slamming our foot against the rock. Let us tread upon the lion and the cobra,” Hotze continued. “I look upon the coronavirus—it’s just a lion and a cobra. We’re going to tread upon the lion and the cobra. The young lion and the serpent, we’re going to trample down. In trouble, God is going to hear us because we love him, we call on his name. He’s going to exalt us. He’s going to give us a long healthful life. God has made promises to us that we ought to be claiming as Christians.”

Right. Because Christians never die young or anything. So why not just not get it? Damn, that’s dash clever. Why didn’t we all think of that?
