Published

A video, discovered on YouTube by the Friendly Atheist’s Hemant Mehta, shows a pastor in Sugartown, Louisiana naming and shaming absent parishioners of his church for not showing up for his live sermons during the coronavirus pandemic, and then warning they “must be faithful to the House of God.”

In the video filmed at the Sugartown United Pentecostal Church on Sunday, Pastor Tim Deason haranguing attendees, saying that he expects their children to also attend Sunday school, but first he called out the those who stayed home by naming them one-by-one, pointing out that one family was on vacation while complaining that another’s children were not attending.

Then he issued a warning to those who did show up.

“I’m your pastor. So let me address you this morning. You must be faithful to the House of God. Everybody say amen,” he stated. “This is not a one-service church, [that] means that you take a service on Sunday morning, and we established this quite some times ago. When we have a service, then the doors are open — we need to be in church.

“You need church, you need church,” he insisted. “Why do I get up here sometimes fussing and complaining? I’m trying to get you to heaven — hallelujah. I’m gonna talk a little bit about that. I guess the Lord just knew you was (sic) gonna be here this morning. I want people to go on vacation, I do. But I don’t just want folks to stay home. If you’re not teaching your family faithfulness, you’re not exhibiting more of that attributes of God.”

"Trump has no idea what words like fascism and totalitarianism mean," McFaul, now a professor at Stanford, declared.

"To those who wrote this speech and those senior [White House] officials who approved this speech, shame on you. Perhaps the most un-American speech ever delivered by an American president and on the July 4th weekend no less," he explained.
