  • It Took A Canadian Pastor...

    I don't agree with all of the name calling - but...

    Reminds me of the scene in Disney's Robin Hood where Friar tuck kicks out the Sheriff of Nottingham without physical fighting involved.

      I sometimes wonder if people intentionally provoke these things, just to record them.

      I couldn't hear anything the cops were saying but they appeared to be rather low key about it. And they left without making a scene, so I wouldn't have any complaints. But there sure were a lot of them. Did they really need six of them?

          Why were the police there? Not clear at all.

            To shut down a Good Friday service.

              It was a "cleansing the Temple" moment.

                To make sure the attendance was in the bounds set for covid 19. His sentiment would be absolutely correct if this was actually a police action aimed at the church to quell freedom of worship as it was under the Nazi's

                  Apparently, the Pastor had experience under Communism....

                  “I grew up under communism and my grandparents lived under the Nazis,” said the Calgary pastor. “My family escaped the communists in Poland and first went to Greece and then to Canada to get away from it. There were millions of Jewish people murdered in Poland including at Auschwitz.”

                    Yuh. I could tell by the way he was speaking that he knew what he was talking about.

                    And it's clear that he, and others, can see the similarities.

                      My church had a service on Good Friday, and the police never showed up to shut us down.

                        The police showed up at our service, and they operated the sound system.

                          Good for you.

                          Did your church get the provincial "grant" for obeying their health orders, like good little frightened children?

                            Same here. Tickets for the indoor service up to the legal capacity. Tickets for the outside service, up to legal outdoor capacity. And streaming for those that chose to stay home. No police showed up other than those that are members.

                              It was pretty evident he was expressing feelings based upon bitter experience.

                              Personally, instead of yelling at the health care workers I would have been telling the police to remove them immediately that they are trespassers. And repeatedly kept doing so talking over the woman intent on first delivering a speech before leaving, and I would have insisted that they arrest her if she continues to refuse. She seemed to think it was her right to give her speech before having to leave. Wrong.
