President Donald Trump is really going nuts, now. He has tweeted videos of a preacher-doctor woman named Stella Immanuel from Western Africa’s Cameroon who now minister’s in Houston. (I lived in metro Houston for forty years.) Trump refers to her as an “important voice” because she recommends drinking hydroxycloroquine as a cure of COVID-19, which Trump has touted since April and claims to have consumed personally for two weeks. This is despite the fact that our nation’s top medical authorities, including the FDA, recommend against taking hydroxycloroquine for this coronavirus, adding that it has caused heart attacks and killed people.
Immanuel also has been a pediatrician and physician in Alexandria, Louisiana, since October last year. The wikipedia article about her says she claims “many gynecological illnesses are the result of having sex dreams with succubi and incubi [demons] and receiving ‘demon sperm.’ She has said that endometriosis, infertility, miscarriages, and sexually transmitted infections are caused by the spirit husbands and spirit wives. She said in a 2015 sermon that space alien DNA is used in medical treatments and that reptilians and aliens run the government.”
This woman Stella Immanuel is one big nut case. And it is alarming that President Trump, his son Don Jr., and Congressman Ralph Norman (R-SC) are posting videos of her speeches on the internet, indicating their support of what she’s saying. What an embarrassment it is for Americans that our president endorses such kooky ideas.
The idea of demons, spirits, or angels having sex with humans is very ancient. It is rampant in ancient, pagan literature. When ancients built ziggurats in the Near East, such as at Babylon, temple prostitutes were housed on the top floor in the belief that the gods descended from heaven to have sex with these women.
Even today, a majority of biblical scholars believe that prior to the destruction of the earth by a flood in the days of Noah and his ark, angels descended from heaven to marry women, impregnate them, and the women gave birth to children. Scholars merely debate whether or not these progeny were fully human or half human and half angel. The classic text in the Bible that these scholars cite to support this viewpoint is Gen 6.1-4. It reads as follows in the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible:
