The Canadian government has thrown a Christian pastor in jail over perceived health code violations relating to social distancing inside his church.
According to Breitbart News, “Rev. James Coates of GraceLife Church of Edmonton turned himself in to police on Tuesday, two days after officials attended his Sunday service to assess compliance with conditions issued to the pastor, police said in a news release Wednesday.”
The enforcement agencies in Canada claimed Coates was “was not complying with his Undertaking release conditions” meaning he was given requirements to conduct his church and refused to do so.
According to Coate’s lawyer, Coates “was willing to go to jail in order to do the ‘right thing’ but ‘Coates could not, in good conscience,’ agree to the cessation of church services.”
