More pastors arrested as COVID enforcers show dictatorial colours

Pastor Tim’s distressed children watch their father head off to jail for 10 days for the alleged crime of disobeying a “health order” and meeting in the open air.

IN Melbourne, Australia, police acting for the global COVID dictators arrested Paul Furlong, the pastor of a small church, for holding an outdoor service and locked him up in a remand centre for a week. They even took away his Bible, forcing him to sign papers to get it back.

Pastor Furlong was released from custody last Tuesday but banned from social media as a condition. Police also tried to stop him from contacting Monica Schmidt of Reignite Democracy, who told Alan Jones on Sky News that Sen Sgt Luke Holmes of Victoria Police commented: “Mr Furlong holds his beliefs very strongly and this is a concern to us.”

In Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Baptist pastor Tim Stephens was also one of several Canadian pastors arrested recently. Like Ps Furlong, Ps Stephens was charged with “offences” relating to disobeying the orders of a chief health officer and holding church services.

The arrests and jailing extended to People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier, for holding a political rally in Manitoba province. So, freedom of religion and political belief are not protected in Canada? The arrest is being challenged in court.

Pastor Stevens was arrested again on June 15 and taken into custody after a police helicopter spotted him and his church members gathering outdoors. The distressing arrest took place at his home in front of his wife and crying children was covered by live by Rebel News. Other media were noticeably absent.

The arresting officer came across as the goody two-shoes Christian pointing out to the pastor that his parents were Christians too, but watched their services online, so why shouldn’t he “obey the law like everyone else?”

Unfortunately, most people including cops do not understand that “health orders” are not the same as law. They are merely orders. Another word for an order given by government is diktat, defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as “1. An order that must be obeyed, or the act of giving such an order”.

That’s how a dictatorship operates, merely giving orders that must be obeyed, without reference to restraining constitutional laws. So, by definition, disobeying the orders of a government – especially those given based on deception and fraud – is disobeying a dictatorship.

As pointed out by Ps Stephens, the highest law of Canada is the Charter of Rights and Freedoms that upholds freedom of religion as a right of all Canadians. It is a historic right supported by constitutions of all free nations, but now under serious attack by a global cabal of greedy, dishonest billionaires like Bill Gates and George Soros, and their government sycophants such Anthony Fauci and the premiers and chief health officers of Australian states and Canadian provinces.

In respect to the arrested pastors, no criminal acts were involved except for the fact that police went to a court to obtain an enforcement order of a court and disobeying such a court order comes under the Criminal Code.

Police said Stephens was arrested for hosting an illegal outdoor gathering that did not comply with current restrictions. Earlier this this month, Alberta Health Services seized and physically closed his Fairview Baptist Church to prevent access until Stephens could “demonstrate the ability to comply with these restrictions.”

Here’s the rub. If the global COVID dictatorship gets its way you will have to “demonstrate the ability to comply with restrictions” for almost everything you do. The all-powerful bureaucrats, on their big salaries and public service perks will be kept busy approving everything about your organisation, business, even home.

The provincial bureaucrats of Alberta already have decreed a “Stage 2 reopening plan”, under which places of worship are required to limit attendance to one third of their building’s maximum fire code occupancy. So, they now have the power to control religion, and by extension, any sort of gathering at any location. After all, they can’t just pick on the Christians, can they?

The anti-virus zealotry of these Canadian provincial and Australian state bureaucrats might have some credibility, were it not for the fact that these same bureaucrats are not only ignoring but suppressing the use of common drugs like Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to treat the dreaded virus. Highly qualified medical researchers and doctors are crying out to governments to release these treatments.

Indian state governments, faced with rapid apparent viral spreading of mutated COVID-19 strains, have actually opted for widespread use of Ivermectin. Indian lawyers are also suing the chief medical officer of the WHO for suppressing the treatment.
The health bureaucrats are also furiously pushing vaccines that are killing and maiming very large numbers of people, apparently to save people from a virus that is lethal to less than 1 percent of those who get infected, and from which most people recover without intervention or with minimal intervention.

Christians defy COVID lions in Canada

THE pastor of a church on the outskirts of Edmonton, Alberta, has been reluctantly arrested by Royal Canadian Mounted Police for not enforcing so-called “orders” by Alberta Health Services – one of those health departments that claim to have absolute power over everything because a mutated or genetically-engineered corona virus is floating around.

The problem is “the virus”, as it almost daily referred to on media, actually hasn’t been isolated, and is very much like severe flu to those who catch it. Also like flu, it may even contribute to death if the infected person is already fighting other serious illnesses. However, according to Professor Karl Friston of the UK, between half and 80% of the population is non-susceptible to this corona virus infection.

What they call a “death from COVID-19” mostly involves a comorbidity, and frequently no COVID-19 diagnosis at all. And the “diagnosis” or the PCR test is also misleading, a fact now even recognised by the WHO. “Cases” are the mere detection of cold and flu virus DNA fragments in a person, who can be neither infectious nor symptomatic.

Do a lot of PCR testing and you get a lot of “cases”, which triggers the media, health departments and most premiers into “authority mode” so they can come save us again with another round COVID-19 shutdowns that actually do untold harm to the economy. But the big global corporates are, of course, essential business and can stay open, unlike the thousands of small businesses that actually keep the largest part of a normal economy running.

Now the Canadian pastor, James Coates of Grace Life Church, following the lead of other North American pastors like John MacArthur and Che Ahn of California and Kevin Wilson of Virginia, does not entirely buy the COVID pandemic narrative, but initially took the required measures. His church met only 29 times in the year and went online the rest of the time.

The pastor, with the strong support of his congregation and other Christians, is standing up to the incessant demands of the new global health dictatorship. He faces arrest again by the RCMP but is quite prepared for it, because he sees the right of the church to gather, with reasonable deference to health concerns, as obedience to God. Alberta Health Services says only 15% of his building space can be used, masks must be worn, social distancing must be observed and no-one can simply decide to go to the church if they are not a member already. In other words, the government now runs his church in violation of the western tradition of mutual respect between church and state.

“We are gravely concerned that COVID-19 is being used to fundamentally alter society and strip us all of our civil liberties,” a statement from the church reads. A later statement reads: “If anything, we see our actions as contributing to [COVID-19’s] end – the end of destructive lockdowns and the end of the attempt to institutionalize the debilitating fear of viral infections.”

Speaking on the web channel CrossPolitic Pastor Coates said when members of the RCMP came to Grace Life Church to arrest Pastor Coates, the congregation game them a standing ovation as a Christian act of honour towards those in authority, in accordance with St Paul’s teaching in chapter 13 of the Letter to Romans. The RCMP appreciated the gesture and returned it with as much grace as they could in the circumstances. “I think they would have preferred not to have had this battle, but we’ve chosen not to budge,” Pastor Coates said.

He sees this confrontation as a time when Christian doctrine is being challenged and being put to the test. “That’s when robustness comes to our doctrinal convictions.” Other churches in the area signed a letter contradicting Grace Life’s stand, saying churches should go beyond what they are being asked to do by health authorities i.e. the turn-the-other-cheek position.

But Coates, like many others, sees more to the current lockdowns and “health orders” than just simple measures to prevent the spread of a virus. “With the declared public health emergency that creates that whole new system of government law because you declare a health emergency that gives all this power to Alberta Health Services and now, they have this unelected authority to enforce government edicts… When will it end? You’ve got new variants that are coming in. Every time a new virus comes in here’s the precedent on how to handle it. This is significant in altering the way that society functions. I would say we’re at risk of losing civil liberties that we’ve enjoyed in this country since its inception.”

The RCMP sent officers to GraceLife’s February 14th service, but no arrests were made. Inspector Mike Lokken said the RCMP “would not interrupt church services, prohibit services, nor deny peoples’ right to practice their religion” but “merely ensure that public health restrictions are adhered to while doing so”.

Pastor Coates’ stand shares some of the concerns of Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, who was criticized in May last year for calling COVID-19 “an influenza that does not generally threaten life, apart from the most elderly, the immunocompromised, and those with comorbidities.”

“We cannot continue indefinitely to impair the social and economic — as well as the mental health and physiological health of the broader population — for potentially a year for an influenza that does not generally threaten life apart from the elderly and the immunocompromised,” the premier told the legislature.
Premier Kenney is one of the few state leaders worldwide to tell the truth, but the province’s health bureaucrats appear to be under the control of same “global health” mafia calling the shots across the planet and forcing compliance with the agenda.
