Video of Canadian Pastor Standing Up to Police, Health Officers Goes Viral

"Please get out. Get out of this property. Immediately get out."

Pastor Artur Pawlowski, pastor of Calgary's Street Church in Alberta, Canada, gave this emphatic response to police, city and health department officers who interrupted a worship service he was holding Saturday at the Fortress (Cave) of Adullam per Calgary CTV News. The video he posted of this encounter has now gone viral, with a reported 1 million views as of Sunday morning, per the Washington Examiner.

A spokesperson for Alberta Health Services told Calgary CTV the officers were "there to observe whether the organization was following" Alberta's health guidelines laid out regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Those restrictions include limiting capacity to 15% and requiring attendees to wear masks and maintain physical distancing.

Sen. Warnock Deletes 'Heretical' Easter Tweet Amid Backlash

Sunday, Christians across the globe celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the event that split eternity and brought salvation to all those who believe in His name.

Conservative attorney Jenna Ellis and websites such as mediaite.com captured the shocking statement before Warnock deleted it after receiving massive backlash.

Warnock deleted his heretical tweet.

The United States Olympic Committee said the guidelines are only for the U.S. Olympic trials, not the Tokyo Olympics scheduled for this summer. The International Olympic Committee's Rule 50 prohibits protests and demonstrations.
