Multi-Millionaire Televangelist Kenneth Copeland Claims Commercial Airplanes Are Full Of Demons So He Buys Private Jets
Meet Kenneth Copeland. He’s the multi-millionaire televangelist who allegedly used his donors’ money to buy himself a private jet from Madea because a commercial airplane is a “long tube filled with demons.” He’s got a point. Anyone who’s flown commercial steerage with a shrieking baby onboard has probably felt the same.
Last month, Inside Edition, via Friendly Atheist, tracked down Kenneth Copeland after he disembarked from his assumedly demon-free private jet. The correspondent managed to catch the demon avoider as he was getting into his chauffeured SUV and the interview that ensued is crazed. They only ran a smidge of it last month but they just posted the full interview and it’s glorious!
Looking like a holy roller, cray cray-eyed Frankenstein’s Monster who just cut the ribbon on the new waterslide at Heritage USA in 1986, Kenneth Copeland managed to combine sexual harassment, anti-Semitism, and performance art about religion indeed being the opiate of the masses in a single interview.
Correspondent Lisa Guerrero brought up Kenneth Copeland’s claim that the asshole in the middle seat that keeps falling asleep on your shoulder and drooling on you is actually Lucifer’s minion. He denied saying it.
“No I do not and don’t you ever say I did,” Copeland responded. Copeland said the jet is important to his ministry. “If I flew commercial, I’d have to stop 65% of what I’m doing.”
“People get pushed in alcohol. Do you think that’s a good place for a preacher to be and prepare to go preach to a lot of people? When somebody in there is dragging some woman down an aisle, it made me so mad to see that on television, I wanted to punch the guy out myself! I can’t be doing that while I’m getting ready to preach!
They got into how Copeland, who admits to being a “very wealthy man” and owns his own airport in Texas to park his private jet in, bought the aircraft off of Tyler Perry for a song, which he admitted that he uses it to visit his vacation homes. Note the plural.
“How much did you pay for Tyler Perry’s Gulfsteam jet for example?” Guerrero countered.
“Well, for example, that’s really not of your business,” he replied.
“Isn’t it the business of your donors?” she asked.
“Listen, he made that airplane so cheap for me, I couldn’t help but buy it,” Copeland said.
Who hasn’t justified buying shit with that excuse? Creepy, swindling televangelists are just like us!
And if he wasn’t loathsome enough:
COPELAND (to Guerrero): I love your eyes.
COPELAND: If you go into the Old Covenant, do you think the Jewish people believe you should be broke?
GUERRERO: Are you saying that Jewish people appreciate money more than…?
COPELAND: They believe in wealth.
Watch this incredible shit show below. And the sad part is that some hoodwinked person out there is probably going to keep cutting his ass checks for God even after viewing this mess. Save it to buy heartworm meds for your cats, Agnes! That’s what God really wants!
