Central Pastor Holds Easter Service For 1,300, Violating Louisiana’s Stay-At-Home Order Again

Two weeks ago we covered the Central Baton Rouge church, Life Tabernacle, who was openly defying the stay-at-home order by holding large church services. Yesterday this church was back at it, holding an even larger televised Easter Sunday gathering. 

Baton Rouge Central PD Chief Roger Corcoran believes Pastor Spell is defying state guidelines purely to gain publicity for himself and his Life Tabernacle Church. Corcoran states it’s not a First Amendment issue because Spell is jeopardizing the health of his parishioners and all Louisiana residents. Earlier this week the Central PD stated they would not stop the gathering, and instead present it as evidence to the District Attorney for future prosecution.
