Conspiracy theorist Rodney Howard-Browne, best known for his “Holy Laughter“-based religious ceremonies, wants you to know he has the power to prevent the spread of the recent strain of coronavirus.

But only within the boundaries of the U.S.

He knows this because he stopped the Zika virus in Florida.

… and we destroyed and declared — we cursed that thing in the name of Jesus, and Zika disappeared. We are doing the same thing with the coronavirus. We do not need it on these shores.

And obviously, somebody said, “What about the rest of the world?”… I mean, I can’t be responsible for every city or whatever.

Imagine the ignorance you must have to think God is all-powerful, but your ability to pray away a pandemic stops at the borders because even God has His limits. (And He hates foreigners, apparently.)

The irony is that Howard-Browne may be doing less damage by praying to halt the disease than Mike Pence will do by managing the government’s response. For once, I wish Pence would just ask God for help.
