Pastor Spell has been arrested numerous times, placed in jail, and accused of several violations of Governor John Bel 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.”
