Pastor Tony Spell of Life Tabernacle Church is in the news again. This time, it is because of the #PastorSpellStimulusChallenge YouTube video on Tony Spell’s YouTube Page. The spell is asking people to “donate your stimulus package to Home Missions, Missionaries, Evangelist or Churches!”
The controversial leader of the Life Tabernacle Church in Louisiana has whipped up another controversial idea he calls the #PastorSpellStimulusChallenge … and it has 3 rules.
First rule is it starts this Sunday. Second rule is donate your stimulus money … and third rule is give it to North American evangelists, missionaries or music ministers who haven’t received any money from parishioners in the past month.
Interestingly, that would NOT include Spell … who’s kept his church doors open to his flock. He doesn’t specify if his challenge requires folks to donate some or all of their stimulus cash, but says he’s practicing what he preaches by donating all of his $1,200 … and so is his wife.
His challenge also doesn’t seem to consider many people are in desperate need of their stimulus money for food, rent or bills. Then again, this is the guy who packed his church on Easter with zero concern for public health or that of his congregation.
You’ll recall Spell also told us his parishioners are true Christians who wouldn’t mind dying from the virus because they’d be doing so in the name of God and freedom.
He clearly thinks they wouldn’t mind giving away over a thousand bucks to other churches either … whether they need it or not.
Rep. Clay Higgins, R-La., sent a letter to Edwards last week saying the proclamation is unconstitutional when applied to houses of worship.
“I agree that all our constituents and religious leaders should follow the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC)”, Higgins wrote. “However, the decision to gather should be the choice of the individual or institution and not a mandate by any government entity. The state has no authority to enforce this proclamation nor any ban on worship”.
According to officials, most of the religious leaders and services have gone online, after the White House’s strict ban.
