The news is out: [A Michigan pastor is facing backlash following a sermon he gave last month in which he told his congregation to contract COVID-19 to “get it over with.“
According to The Holland Sentinel, Bart Spencer, senior pastor of Lighthouse Baptist Church, delivered the remarks in a Nov. 14 sermon that was shared on Facebook late last week.
“COVID, it’s all good. Several people have had COVID, none have died yet,” Spencer reportedly said after he started coughing while delivering a sermon.
“It’s OK. Get it, get it over with, press on,” he added.
A clip from the sermon was shared in the Facebook group “Holland Happenings” by Miguel Medina, a former member of Lighthouse Baptist Church.
Several people commented on the post to criticize Spencer’s remarks, with one user writing that the statements were “irresponsible.”
“I had no intention of posting, but I couldn’t believe what I just saw and heard,” Medina told the Holland Sentinel.]
God’s goons are made in his image: dumb and deadly.
