Televangelist Kenneth Copeland is scheduled to be a featured orator at the Fort Jackson army bottom ask breakfast in Columbia, S.C. on Feb 1. Copeland is a member of President Donald Trump’s faith advisory legislature and a self-described “Christian extremist.”
In 2013, Copeland claimed that PTSD wasn’t a medical condition requiring psychiatric intervention, but a problem that could be solved by being a righteous Evangelical Christian.
“Any of you pang from PTSD right now, you listen to me,” Copeland added. “You get absolved of that right now. You don’t take drugs to get absolved of it. It doesn’t take psychology. That guarantee right there will get absolved of it.”
Copeland, worth an estimated $26.5 million, cited demons drifting on blurb airlines to explain his 2015 squeeze of a private jet.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation has filed a grave censure with bottom commander Major General Pete Jackson to ask that Copeland’s invitation to the Army ask breakfast be rescinded.
