Televangelist Kenneth Copeland snapped at an Inside Edition reporter in a recent interview about his lavish lifestyle and private-jet use, saying he makes no apologies for the fact that his
hypnotized blind followers ministry has made him “a very wealthy man.”
Mr. Copeland, owner of the Texas-based Kenneth Copeland Ministries, was confronted by Inside Edition’s Lisa Guerrero about using his private jets to travel to and from his vacation homes. Ms. Guerrero specifically asked him about a comment he made in 2015 in defending his private-jet use, when he argued that commercial planes are full of “a bunch of demons” who would bog down his busy schedule with prayer requests.
“Do you really believe that human beings are demons?” the reporter asked.
“No I did not,” Mr. Copeland responded, angrily. “And don’t you ever say I did.”
He said that he was talking about the demons inside of people, such as alcohol abuse, not the people themselves.
