Texas televangelist suggests something other than a flu shot


Texas televangelist Gloria Copeland doesn't believe there's such a thing as flu season. 

Last week, she said on Facebook, "We got a duck season, a deer season, but we don't have a flu season. And don't receive it when somebody threatens you with, 'Everyone’s getting the flu!'"

Of course, people have their opinions about the flu shot but doctors recommend getting one. Even if you get the flu, it would be a milder case.

Copeland hit back on that saying, "If you say, 'Well, I don’t have any symptoms of the flu,' well, great! That's the way it's supposed to be. Just keeping saying that. 'I'll never have the flu. I'll never have the flu.' Put words. Inoculate yourself with the word of God."

Positive thinking or spiritual belief aside, do you think this is good advice overall?
