To the police officers who came to the porch of his Baton Rouge church to order it closed, to the White House liaison who called him, to people slamming him across social media, Pastor Tony Spell has a response: What about Planned Parenthood?
In March of 2020, Rev. Tony Spell was ordered to cease having worship services at Life Tabernacle Church because of Governor John Bel Edwards’ ban on gatherings of more than 50 people. Pastor Spell has been arrested numerous times, placed in jail, and accused of several violations of Governor Edwards’ orders. He was told not to assemble for worship services, much like the authorities of old demanded the early church not to “teach nor preach in Jesus’ name” (Acts 4:18).
Pastor Spell has been under house arrest. He was forced to wear an ankle bracelet because he will not abandon his convictions. He has been penalized for adhering to a sacred obligation based upon God’s command to not forsake the assembling of the church together (Hebrews 10:25).
Next week, Spell will appear in court facing six misdemeanors after continuing in-person church services despite the state's stay-at-home order. Judge Roy Moore will be representing Pastor Tony Spell.
A “Strike a Blow for Freedom” rally will take place on June 7 at the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans Fifth District Court.
