Polish Pastor and legal immigrant Artur Pawlowski kicked out Canadian law enforcement and health inspectors trying to shut down his Church’s Passover service. The police claim they were responding to a “tip” related to potential coronavirus lockdown violations.
The Pastor who grew up in Poland behind the Iron Curtain and escaped communism compared the actions of the Calgary police to that of the Soviets and Nazi Germany. During Pawlowski’s childhood, pastors and priests were arrested, and some were murdered. Many were tortured. Pawlowski warns he sees a repetition of history taking place.
In a video that went viral, the preacher repeatedly called the police “Nazis,” “Communists,” and part of the “Gestapo,” telling them they’re not welcome there and that if they wanna try shutting something, his Church down, to come back with a warrant.
“Police came to disrupt Church gathering! Gestapo came again to intimidate the Church parishioners during the Passover Celebration!!! Unbelievable!” wrote Pawlowski on his youtube channel.
At first, police and the health inspectors appear to push back, but Pawlowski was having none of it and demanded they leave for trying to enter his religious service without a warrant:
“I don’t want to hear a word. Out! Out! Out of this property immediately, until you come back with a warrant — out!”
Calgary Police said they had “concerns” that Pawlowski and his congregation “were not adhering to the government’s COVID-19 public health orders.” In Calgary, Churches are allowed to meet for in-person worship but at only 15 percent capacity, and face masks are mandatory.
After the police left, the pastor turned the camera on him and pleaded for fellow church people to not tolerate, but rather resist such acts of “intimidation”.
“Unbelievable. We’re living in a total takeover of the government with their thugs, goons, the brown shirts, the Gestapo wannabe dictators,” stated Pawlowski. “Coming to the church armed with guns and tasers and handcuffs to intimidate during Passover celebration? Well, I guess that’s what it is, they want to enslave us all like the Egyptians did. They want to be the Pharaohs of today, that’s what they’re doing. Unbelievable. People, if you don’t stand up, wake up, wow. I don’t know what will happen tomorrow.”

This is not the first time the state has harassed the pastor. As Canada devolves into an anti-Christian state indicative of all communist countries, Pawlowski has become a target. He has been harassed, fined, and openly threatened by the Islamic mayor of Calgary, Naheed Nenshi, Antifa, and other radical left-wing radical groups for preaching the Gospel in the streets and even for feeding the poor.
As previously reported at RAIR Foundation USA, Pawlowski electrified crowds with his moving and patriotic speech outside Ottawa’s parliament last summer. The Polish building developer-turned-preacher went to Ottawa to speak at a Canada day protest against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s corrupt government and encourage citizens to unite against communism.
Despite the attacks on Pawlowski by the Canadian government, he continues to fight for his country. “It is so important to stand for your beliefs. Make your presence known! Be vocal! Be vigilant! Be brave!” urged the Pastor.
