Our Views: Tony Spell is a minister who's a threat to life and should be locked up

We’re hearing two views as the death toll for coronavirus mounts.

One is that of an irresponsible minister, Tony Spell of Central in suburban Baton Rouge.

"This is an attack on religion. This an attack on our constitutional rights. We have a constitutional right to assemble and to gather and there are no laws that I am breaking," he said Tuesday, before leading another service putting the lives of all attending at risk.

Here’s a more sensible Christian view.

“If I thought this was an attack on religious freedom, I’d be right there with him,” says Tony Perkins. “It’s a directive for the sake of public health not to meet.”

Perkins, a former state representative, makes his home nearby and for his day job leads the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C.

He is right to reject the absolutist and dangerous actions of Spell. Already charged by prosecutors with six counts of violating the emergency declaration, handcuffs cannot and should not be far behind for the defiant Life Tabernacle Church pastor.

The argument that the First Amendment to the Constitution forbids any and all government actions in terms of speech, religion and assembly is just wrong. The famous phrase used by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. of the U.S. Supreme Court was that there is no free-speech right to yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater.

“The Constitution is not a suicide pact,” often attributed to President Abraham Lincoln to justify emergency actions during the Civil War, was used in a high court opinion in the 1940s.

In terms of law and society, the Central pastor is wrong.

Here, Attorney General Jeff Landry has supported that the stay-at-home orders and limits on public assemblies. We agree with him and Gov. John Bel Edwards that public-health emergencies require strong action.

What is at work here, exploited by Spell, is the genuine fear of a faceless threat. People of faith naturally wish to come together as they are used to, seeking divine guidance and inspiration. Those days will come again, but for the moment prudence must be the rule.

One of those dying of coronavirus complications was a well-known Episcopalian minister, the Rev. William Barnwell of New Orleans. Friends remembered an important sermon in which he rejected a fearful and bleak view of human nature.

“We are creatures made in the very image of God. And we can live the way we were created to live, especially with the help of a loving community,” Barnwell said.

Those called to the ministry have a leadership responsibility not only to God but to their communities. A loving community of believers does not gather in the face of a deadly communicable disease. Those who defy legitimate public-safety orders should be arrested.

12 Experts Questioning the Coronavirus Panic

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

You're the one cowering in fear.

Hey, aren’t you the guy that is always yelling about our constitutional rights being violated? That our First Amendment right which protects our freedom to speak is being lost? Sure – That’s you. You’re that guy and that is what you have always been doing.

Well - lookee here!

My view: Gatlin is a false prophet and government propagandist who's a threat to Liberty and should be locked up

Here you are as the champion of our rights under the constitution accusing me with unsubstantiated charges and telling everyone you feel I should now be denied my freedom of speech because I don’t support the causes which you advocate and that since I disagree with you that I “should be looked up” for that?

Really – REALLY …

I don’t know if I will be able to handle my reaction to this terrifying, traumatic, and surprising experience caused by you and I may be developing Acute Stress Disorder (ASD).

Only dumb asses red coats and commies think that. What is the definition of No Gatlin. Get a dictionary and come back and tell us. You are stupid or senile.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

I read the articles that come up in my google search.

If you don’t want them posted – you just need say that.

Your childish tantrum throwing a hissy fit was completely unnecessary.

You really should try to act more mature and exercise some self-control.

As the owner of the forum, you really should …

BTW – Great exchange.
