BOOM! Pastor Vindicated After Not Bowing To COVID Fears

In case you haven't heard, Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne has been the target of recent COVID-related propaganda all because the man wouldn't bow to the fears that the MSM is shoving down our throats day after day.

And as I'm sure you've guessed, he was arrested for his actions.

He and those involved were practicing "social distancing" and offering hand sanitizer but still, he was all but slammed for his want of the Lord. They really put this dude through the ringer, too. Mugshot and all... and no the story doesn't end there.

Prosecutors have dropped the charges against the Tampa pastor who held Sunday services despite county orders meant to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The office of Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren filed notice Friday that it will not pursue the case against Pastor Tampa Rodney Howard-Browne of the River at Tampa Bay Church. Howard-Browne had been charged with unlawful assembly and violating quarantine orders during a public health emergency.

In a statement, Warren said Howard Browne’s arrest “remains an appropriate step taken by law enforcement to immediately correct irresponsible behavior after repeated efforts to gain cooperation in other ways were not successful.” —TampaBayTimes

Dropping? That was good news. ‘An appropriate step’? Eh, not so much.

Warren joined Sheriff Chad Chronister at a news conference March 23, a day after Howard-Browne held Sunday morning and evening services at the Tampa church. Chronister said sheriff’s officials reached out to the church twice before the services to stress the importance of following county orders that limited gatherings to 10 people and required residents to stay at home except for essential tasks.

Instead, Chronister said, Howard-Browne held services anyway, showing a “reckless disregard” for the congregation and the public. Warren then took to the lectern at the news conference and quoted the Bible. —TampaBayTimes

Reckless disregard? Maybe he missed that "social distancing" and "hand sanitizer" part of what the church was providing for attendees?

I really admire this pastor.If I was living close to his church,I would attend there.The govt has no right to close churches.Our forefathers came here for freedom of religion.We have lost a lot of our freedoms.

I guess to some authorities freedom to worship and to assemble are not essential despite the Constitution.

Religious Freedom ever hear of that…get used to it. We have a right to practice our religion. All precautions were taken. This is religious persecution at its’ finest. ENOUGH
