Pastor Henry Hildebrandt of the Church of God in Aylmer, Ont. visited southern Alberta last week. I joined him at the church of Pastor Artur Pawlowski (who is still on a speaking tour in the United States) for an update on his situation and the status of his still-seized church building. We also discussed the divisive politics that are being employed to divide and conquer Canadians.
The shameful arrests of pastors throughout the period of strictest COVID restrictions is a stain that shall likely haunt Premier Jason Kenney as long as he remains in office, but he was not alone in his almost exclusive targeting of Christian places of worship for restriction enforcement. Doug Ford’s Ontario government nailed pastors who would not close their doors with fines and building seizures, which Pastor Henry’s Church of God experienced firsthand. Oddly, though Pastor Henry piloted drive-in services and attempted to incorporate safety guidelines, he was still among those almost exclusively Christian religious leaders singled out to be made an example out of.
Pastor Henry gave an impassioned speech to the gathered congregation, which you can watch in its entirety here, before we spoke about the decline of fundamental rights in Canada, vaccine segregation and the upcoming morally defining federal election, among other issues.
