Televangelist Jonathan Shuttlesworth completely lost his cool this week and attacked churches in Italy for canceling large gathering to protect people from getting infected by the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Shuttlesworth, who is a prominent supporter of Donald Trump, lashed out at the churches who want to protect people from getting the virus.
“Shame on every European full gospel church, bunch of sissies, that shut down during this thing!” he ranted.
Shuttlesworth even going so far as to attack individual Christians who are using hand sanitizer as a precautionary measure.
“If you’re putting out pamphlets and telling everybody to use Purell before they come into the sanctuary and don’t greet anyone, you should just turn in your ministry credentials and burn your church down — turn it into a casino or something,” he fumed in a video posted on Right Wing Watch’s Twitter account. “You’re a loser. Bunch of pansies, no balls, got neutered somewhere along the line and don’t even realize it!”
Shuttlesworth went on to claim America will face minimal casualties from coronavirus because Trump has shown himself to be an ally of the Israeli government.
“Trump honors Israel, and it’s a massive difference,” he said. “And because of that, I predict America will be minimally affected by coronavirus.”
