How not to cower before the COVID police
One of Jesus's last acts before his crucifixion was the incident we know as "the cleansing of the temple," when he threw the money changers out of the Temple in Jerusalem for defiling God's house. That image came inexorably to my mind when I saw the video of a Canadian pastor, through sheer force of will, sending eight COVID cops, many of them armed, out of the church. Watching Pawlowski, I had to wonder if he was inspired by Jesus's courage in ejecting the money changers from the temple. He knows that he has to answer to someone higher than Justin Trudeau.
