Officials in Alberta, Canada, shut down a church that broke coronavirus restrictions by erecting chain-link metal fencing around the building.
“This is what happens when you have freedom of religion in a free and democratic society: they jail your pastor for freely opening the doors of the church and serving Christ’s sheep and hurting people. Now they’ve chained the doors of GraceLife Church enclosing in chain link fence,” an Instagram post from Erin Coates, the wife of pastor James Coates, reads.
Police and health officials blocked off the roads surrounding GraceLife Church and erected the fencing. It is the first time that Canadian officials forcibly had to close a church during the pandemic.
What began as a peaceful protest outside GraceLife church — just west of Edmonton — escalated when protesters tore down some of the fencing surrounding the property on Sunday afternoon.
A couple of hours into the demonstration, dozens of protesters began tearing down the tall metal fences that were installed by Alberta Health Services (AHS) earlier this week.
In a statement, Alberta RCMP addressed the situation at GraceLife.
“The Alberta RCMP will continue to act to preserve the peace and maintain public safety. The RCMP will use only the level of intervention necessary to ensure the safety of all citizens and to maintain peace, order, and security.
“The RCMP uses necessary measures to protect the fundamental freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of expression, to promote the safety of all citizens, to enforce laws and to maintain peace and order. In turn, it must be recognized that while everyone has a right to peaceful freedom of expression; the general public, local residents and businesses also have the right to a safe environment.”
The mainstream media will never ait these videos because it would prevent people from waking up!
When will the Canadian cops start using violence to preserve peace? You know they want to kill Christians.
This is how it starts, with a group of people who will really not accept the imposition of the totalitarians. It will encourage other groups and it gets larger and larger even as the first group is fined, imprisoned, or killed. Canada still has some men with thee courage to do it. I don’t see any of that south of the Canadian border. Here it won’t start because w have a governor that doesn’t push the lockdown. Florida is open for business. What happens when the Federal government nationalizes the lockdown and control I can’t guess. Will Floridians tear down the government fences?
When the government fears the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny.
How many mosques has Canada fenced off? How many of them do they conduct forced inspections? Perfect time now for Canada to declare all Christians terrorists and hand their churches over to mozlims.
It was necessary to destroy the village in order to save it.
What would this "aiting" do?
People at the church stepped in to put the fence back up in the end.
Provocateurs I suspect were there to discredit the church and its stand against tyranny with violence.
The Canadian authorities know what the FBI does with informants and undercover agents to discredit those who dissent.
A gun shop owner here in Missouri (Jefferson County) had some official maskhole dink from St. Louis County come into his shop and started telling him that masks are 'mandatory (they are not in Jeff cty) last week (the video was uploaded on youtube). He had his little clipboard and everything. The shop owner told him to get the eff out of his store. As a side note, the maskhole was a black guy; had his ball cap on backwards and came in like he owned the joint. When he left, he left in a Lexus. Those gubmint jobs really pay.
And our pastor gave a sermon on how we’re to obey government since he said it’s scriptural; tell that to the Maccabees and those at Masada.

That’s the difference between a Democracy like Canada and say, China. If they did it in China, they’d all be in jail looking to years in prison or worse comes to worst, all shot dead.
“What would this “aiting” do?”
Draws you out of you lair?
Would you rather obey God or Trudeau?
Lots of examples of Godly people defying tyrants:
Paul, Simon, John, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego.....and weren’t all of the early Christians who were thrown into lions’ dens not bowing down to the “government” of their day?
I told my pastor that I would not obey tyrants in government and he replied that God had control and set them up just like Nero who persecuted Christians.
It IS scriptural, unless they are telling us to do evil. Then, it’s not. Nowadays, much of what the government wants us to do, is evil.
PS: Be safe up there.
Which is why I watch what they say and do.
