Now that right-wing pastor Rodney Howard-Browne has been arrested and charged with unlawful assembly and violating health emergency rules — both second-degree misdemeanors — his friend and fellow pastor Jonathan Shuttlesworth plans to hold a “Woodstock”-sized event.
“We’re gonna hold an outdoor Easter blowout service — not online,” he said. “A national gathering. You come from all over — like Woodstock. And we’re gonna gather and lift up Jesus Christ. I’m not ashamed that Dr. Rodney got arrested — I’m ashamed that when they wanted to arrest preachers for having church, that in an entire state there was only one they came for.”
