In Calgary Canada, police came and disrupted a worship service on Good Friday.

Here is what happened: https://mobile.twitter.com/ezralevant/status/1378506465158303747

This pastor was previously fined $1200 for feeding the hungry; because he was not social distancing.

That video was rather interesting to say the least. Methinks, even though the "pastor" (Messianic Jew?) was correct in disallowing those individuals to enter the place of worship because they had no warrant, his demeanor could have been much better tempered, IMHO. His pursuit of the police as they were leaving and screaming pejoratives at them was really uncalled for.

Now, after the video ended I notice another video that 'starred' the same man and a group of his parishioners in a park feeding the needy, poor and homeless on an obviously cold winter day. He was surrounded by police and threatened and it appeared they were looking for an excuse to physically harm him and arrest him. At least in this video, he was far more civil and argued quite reasonably and logically about how wrong it was that the "authorities" refused to help these needy people and provide them with some of the necessities of life. It was also quite telling how phony the "regulations" on the COVID19 were because the police who were allegedly there to enforce them were not social distancing nor wearing masks. evilgrin Yes, similar occurrences are common in the U.S. too. But we have a blatant "double standard" here which is not so prevalent in Canada. You can riot, burn buildings, loot stores to your heart's content, assault innocent people and even murder cops without any accountability. In fact, the now Vice President Kamala Harrison was instrumental in providing bail for those "protestors" who were arrested, which was an extremely small number of them. Porn shops, massage parlors, liquor stores, Walmart, etc., etc., were all considered "essential" businesses and thus were allowed to be open. But restaurants, gyms, schools, etc., were all forced to close. Anyway...... enjoyed the videos. grin

I agree with you about him not allowing the police to enter and like you I was uncomfortable with his demeaner.
I did watch another interview of him, where he said where he was from the police acted like gestapo and he now believes how he treated the police is how we need to treat them.
The problem however, is I have now heard lots of people take the side of the police because of how he treated the police.

Unfortunately, I am finding that most of my friends and family are saying that pastor James Coates in Edmonton is at fault and saying that pastors like pastor Coates is giving Christians a bad name.
Believing also that as long as pastors like him insist on disobeying health authorities, we will never get out of this pandemic.
I have bit my tongue many times, however I am beginning to believe it is a mistake to keep my mouth shut; despite the fact if say something it will probably result in family problems.

What I am finding strange, is Reformed friends and family are against pastors like James Coates. Yet my Pentecostal family members are completely for pastors like James Coates. I also have a Reformed friend who is saying the exact same thing.
