A pastor in Pennsylvania says he is planning an outdoor “Woodstock”-like Easter service to protest stay-at-home orders issued amid the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Fox News, evangelist Jonathan Shuttlesworth says he will have an “outdoor Easter blowout service.”
“I’m gonna announce it. … We’re gonna hold an outdoor Easter blowout service. Not online. A national gathering. You come from all over, like Woodstock. And we’re gonna gather and lift up Jesus Christ,” he said.
Shuttlesworth’s announcement comes just days after a Florida pastor was arrested for holding in-person Sunday services. He was accused to violating quarantine orders by holding the service at his River at Tampa Bay Church.
“I’m not ashamed that Dr. Rodney (Howard-Browne) got arrested,” Shuttlesworth said. “I’m ashamed that when they wanted to arrest preachers for having church, in an entire state, there was only one to come for.”
Shuttlesworth posted about Howard-Browne’s arrest on Twitter as well.
“Pastor arrested for having a church service in his own building on Sunday, just like 1938 Germany… and just like 1938 Germany, other pastors say nothing, or applaud the arrest!,” Shuttlesworth wrote on Twitter.
