Pastor who showed off defiant church service dies of COVID-19

A pastor, who proudly showed off how packed his Virginia church was just weeks earlier, has died of COVID-19. ’I firmly believe that God is larger than this dreaded virus’, Bishop Gerald O. Glenn said in an in-person service on Mar 22. In the service, Glenn said he was being ’controversial’ by being ’in violation’ of protocols but vowed to keep his church open ’unless I’m in jail or the hospital’.

He mistakenly believed that the good Lord was testing his faith when in fact it was his intellect and prudence being tested unbeknownst to him.

The same thing happened in Malaysia the leader and organizer of a Muslim pilgrimage of 9000 plus people from all over Asia Cambodia Thailand Jakarta etc He was asked to cancel it by multiple governments and he said and I quote “I fear god more than I fear covid19” All available to read in the Jakarta post When I left Cambodia it had 12 cases in March and when a small amount of Cambodian Muslims returned things skyrocketed lucky Cambodia is a poor country and not many can afford a passport never mind a flight to Malaysia Same time Jakarta and Thailand cases exploded also https://www.thejakartapost.com/academia/2020/03/26/religion-and-covid-19-mitigation.html

I'm sure God really appreciated him endangering his believers unnecessarily. May he rest in peace though.

Died FROM Covid-19, or died WITH Covid-19, is the question to ask here. As much as his death is tragic, we need to be truthful in the reporting.

Show me the autopsy. Show me the family confirming. 80% false positives on the tests when they are even testing. This is just too convenient for the narrative.

I never realized how many "non-religious" people misunderstood religion until I read all these comments. Very telling.

A lot of people are going to die, they are just trying to slow it down so everyone gets some medical care. So the fact he died not the issue. Creating burden on medical system, yea probably.

We all gotta go someday. Still better than a 6 months of constant pain. Most people will eventually get it, he probably had full medical care, so it didn't matter when he got it. Unless they come up with medical cure soon.
