Let’s talk about Stella Immanuel for a moment. Recent information has surfaced regarding her stance on Covid-19 and the precautions that should or should not be taken. Her recommendations have been seemingly hailed by Trump, which has left many perplexed. Now, Dr. Immanuel works as a pediatrician in Texas, where she also works as the minister for her church Firepower Ministries. In fact, her medical practice and her ministry are in the strip mall.
So aside from her medical practice, which to be fair I have yet to find any substantial evidence of her claims to have successfully treated 350 Covid-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax, let’s look at her ministry. Dr. Immanuel has made some pretty bizarre claims that seem to spill over into her medical practice. For example; Immanuel claims that medical issues like endometriosis, cysts, infertility, and impotence are caused by sex with “spirit husbands” and “spirit wives”—a phenomenon Immanuel describes essentially as witches and demons having sex with people in a dream world.
“They are responsible for serious gynecological problems,” Immanuel said. “We call them all kinds of names—endometriosis, we call them molar pregnancies, we call them fibroids, we call them cysts, but most of them are evil deposits from the spirit husband,” Immanuel said of the medical issues in a 2013 sermon. “They are responsible for miscarriages, impotence—men that can’t get it up.” (Daily Beast)
She has also made claims regarding the Magic 8-Ball toy was a tool to get children into witchcraft and that an Illuminati plan had been concocted by “a witch” to destroy the world using abortion, gay marriage, and that DNA from space aliens is currently being used in medicine. These are the beliefs of the “medical professional” who is telling people that masks are not a necessity and that Covid-19 can be 100% cured by a combination of drugs not scientifically proven to do anything but a potential placebo effect. Think I’d rather consort with my Magic-8 ball, at least it more often than not, admits to not having a clue.
