From the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, right-wing pastor and radio host E.W. Jackson dismissed concerns about the virus and vowed to defy government orders to close churches in an effort to prevent its spread.
In March, Jackson boldly proclaimed that God was protecting both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence from contracting the virus and repeatedly declared that he would never contract it because he was also being protected by God.
“I will not get the coronavirus,” Jackson guarantee. “Who do you think you are? How can you say that? Because I asked God to protect me from it. I confessed Psalm 91 over my life and over the life of my congregation and over the life of our families and we’re not getting it.”
