Religious Radio Show: God Gave Louie Gohmert COVID to Prove Hydroxychloroquine Works
It came as little surprise to anyone when Texas congressman Louie Gohmert came down with COVID-19. The GOP lawmaker had made a show of not wearing a mask in the House of Representatives. He even made a show of claiming that wearing a mask might have caused him to contract the virus.
There are some people out there, though, that think that there is a silver lining to Gohmert having the disease. Two religious radio hosts say that God gave the lawmaker the virus so he could prove hydroxychloroquine works.
While the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine has been challenged by a number of doctors, Gohmert says he will be taking the drug for treatment.
Dave Kistler and Gary Dull are the hosts of Stand the Gap, a Christian radio show. They recently discussed the congressman’s situation.
Why did the Lord cause, allow, or direct Louie to get it?” said Dull. “The Lord allowed Louie to get it maybe to show people what truth looks like and how to deal with this COVID-19. And I think that truth be told, we are seeing that in the way Louie has responded to that and how God is working in his life and what he’s saying about it to the American public.”
Kistler replied, “I think your point Gary is one that’s well made,Why would God allow that to happen to him? I think maybe the Lord allowed that because the Lord knew that Louie was going to respond appropriately, correctly, truthfully, courageously, and he has certainly done all of those things.”
