After police in Alberta, Canada invaded a church service, furious pastor Artur Pawlowski shamed the six officers out of the Cave of Adullam Church. He referred to them as the “Gestapo,” let them know in no uncertain terms that they were not welcome there, and told them to come back with a warrant.
The police were supposedly there to “observe” whether the church was following Alberta’s COVID health guidelines (and didn’t have a warrant). Why a half dozen intimidating officers are needed to “observe” Christians peacefully gathering to worship hasn’t been explained. In any case, Pastor Pawlowski was not having it.
In part, Pawlowski said,
“Please get out, get out of this property, immediately get out…I don’t want to hear a word. Out! Out! Out of this property immediately, until you come back with a warrant — out! …I don’t care what you have to say. Out of this property. Gestapo is not allowed here! Do you understand English? Get out of this property and do not come back without a warrant! ….Nazis are not welcome here! Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! …Passover. The holiest Christian festival in a year, and they’re coming to intimidate Christians during the holiest festival — unbelievable! What is wrong with those sick psychopaths?”
In response, the Alberta police complained about Pawlowski raising his voice on social media.

Watching the righteous anger of this Pastor at the disgusting behavior of those officers was amazing. Christians all over the world should learn from his example. That is not because he was angry or because he called the cops names, it’s because this was a Christian man of faith who had good reason to be righteously angry with the officers harassing his parishioners. Conservatives tend to (rightfully) be pro-cop and support them when they’re attacked by the Left, but that doesn’t mean mindlessly supporting everything the police do – such as, in this case, harassing Christians when they’re trying to privately worship.
God bless Pastor Pawlowski because Christianity needs more men with his backbone. If there were more Christians in this country that were this willing to stand up to the government and the disgusting behavior of the Left, America would be in much better shape.
