Pastor Kelly Burton to Flout Social Distancing Guidelines to host Palm Sunday
On Palm Sunday, April 5th, Defiant Christian megachurches across the country have vowed to flout social distancing guidelines and host the Sunday mass — with Pastor Kelly complaining that “Satan’s trying to keep us apart.” This comes amid the coronavirus pandemic that has disrupted all social norms in the US.
“Satan’s trying to keep us apart, he’s trying to keep us from worshipping together. But we’re not going to let him win,” Kelly Burton, pastor at Lone Star Baptist Church in Lone Star, Texas, wrote in a post on Facebook.
The church has been searching for creative ways around the state’s orders against convening in groups larger than 10 people and has been hosting mass in its parking lot services it calls “Church on the Lot.” It plans to do so again for Palm Sunday.
