Members of the Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana held a protest on April 28 in support of Pastor Tony Spell who placed their lives in danger by holding church services that ignored the state’s stay-at-home orders to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
The church members protested outside the Louisiana Governor’s Mansion in Baton Rouge, notes WKRG.
Spell was not present during the protest as he has been sentenced to house arrest after failing to agree to bond conditions after he was arrested.
Spell has been charged with multiple misdemeanor counts of defying an order by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards that prohibits gatherings of more than ten people during the coronavirus outbreak, reports WAFB.
Spell was also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on April 21 when he allegedly backed his church bus towards Trey Bennett, who was protesting in front of the church.
