Press Release
Strike a Blow for Freedom Rally
In the days of lawlessness those who keep the law become the outlaw
On Monday, June 7th, in the year of our Lord 2021, Operation Save America will be conducting a “Strike a Blow for Freedom” rally and press conference. It will take place at the United States Fifth circuit Appeals court in New Orleans Fifth District Court. The time is from 8-9 am.
Judge Roy Moore will be representing Pastor Tony Spell and Life Tabernacle Church of Baton Rouge against Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards; David Barrow, Mayor of Central City, La.; Roger Corcoran, Chief of Police of Central City Mayor; Sharon Weston Broome, Mayor of Baton Rouge, LA; Sheriff Sid Gautreaux of Baton Rouge Parish; and Judge Fred Crifasi of the 19th Judicial District of Louisiana.
Pastor Spell has been arrested numerous times, placed in jail, and accused of several violations of Governor Edward’s orders. He was told not to assemble for worship services, much like the authorities of old demanded the early church not to “teach nor preach in Jesus’ name” (Acts 4:18).
Pastor Spell has been under house arrest. He was forced to wear an ankle bracelet because he will not abandon his convictions. He has been penalized for adhering to a sacred obligation based upon God’s command to not forsake the assembling of the church together (Hebrews 10:25).
Pastor Tony Spell stated, “On March 15, 2021, I was arrested for “failure to comply with Governor John Bel Edwards emergency orders.” Charge? “Holding Church services during a pandemic.” As absurd as this may sound, I was arrested, booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish prison, and am charged with nine crimes. As recently as May 24, 2021 three judges with the Louisiana first circuit court of appeals said “Pastor Spell’s free exercise of religion does not lie outside of the governments jurisdiction.” On June 7, 2021 at the United States Fifth circuit Appeals court in New Orleans, we will prove Governor John Bell Edwards wrong. We will stand on our biblical convictions and on the constitution of the United States of America, and WE WILL WIN!”
Judge Moore added, “Nothing in the United States Constitution or the constitution of any state gives federal and state officials the right to use “emergency powers” to take away our most valuable rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
Rev. Rusty Thomas, National Director of Operation Save America declared, “Civil government is not our god, our nanny, our healthcare provider, nor our master. It has become drunk with power and forgotten that it is to be a servant of the people. It is time to get out our homes, out of our churches, and get back in your Constitutional lane. Your duty is to protect our God-given rights, not squelch them.”
