‘Death is a welcomed friend’: Pastor calls on Christians to defy coronavirus lockdown — even if it kills them

Published

on

Pastor Tony Spell of Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge spoke to TMZ this Wednesday, saying that if his church members die from coronavirus, they’ve done so in the name of religious freedom.

Spell was charged with violating an executive order that bans churches from holding large gatherings, but showed his defiance last Tuesday by holding a service that was attended by over 1,000 people. Speaking to TMZ, Spell said that true Christians would be willing to die from coronavirus, adding that those who “prefer tyranny over freedom do not deserve freedom.”

“The bible teaches us to be absent from our bodies so we can be present with the Lord,” Spell said. “So like any revolutionary, or like any zealot, or like any pure religious person, death looks to them like a welcomed friend.”

Trump drowned in scorn for turning off White House lights as if he ‘ran out of Snickers’ on Halloween

Published

The White House turned off the external lights Sunday night as protests raged nearby, and the unusual reaction served as a metaphor for President Donald Trump's leadership during the latest crisis.

The president was also whisked away to an underground bunker as Washington, D.C., police fired tear gas at protesters, who set fire to prominent structures across the city as part of nationwide demonstrations against police brutality.
