It’s perhaps not hard to understand why on Easter weekend this video has gone viral.
It shows several Canadian police officers and a woman with a “public health inspector” sweater showing up at the Cave of Adullam Church in Calgary, Canada. A Polish pastor who has been identified as Artur Pawlowski, then responded to their presence at the church ordering them out, calling them Nazis and fascists and ordering them “Out of this property!” until they have a warrant. “Nazis are not welcome here, Gestapo is not welcome here.”
The police appear completely cowed by the force of his response and seem to realize that it’s best to leave. He rails against them disrupting the Passover celebration and one of the holiest times of the year.
“Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don’t you dare come back here!”
“Can you imagine those psychopaths? Passover. The holiest Christian festival of the year and they’re coming to intimidate Christians during the holiest festival? Unbelievable. What is wrong with those sick psychopaths. It’s beyond me. How dare they,” he continued.

Some also raised the questions of whether it was against the law in Canada to interrupt a church service.
Pawlowski has allegedly gotten into trouble before for feeding the homeless and other lockdown-related fines. He reportedly grew up in Soviet controlled-Poland.
Police in Canada have actually arrested a pastor in Canada, James Coates, in the past for holding a church service against coronavirus regulations, according to Fox. He has since been released, but still faces fines for being in violation of coronavirus orders, according to Faithwire.
