Pastor who called police “Nazis” claims arsonists set his garage on fire
Artur Pawlowski, the Polish pastor in Canada who recently went viral for clashing with law enforcement over worship restrictions, alleges that arsonists set his garage on fire. On Sunday, Pawlowski, who leads Street Church in Calgary, Alberta, told Rebel News that the garage at his home was set on fire late Saturday night.
“About 11:30 p.m., my wife, she hears some commotions and firefighters, I mean, so many cars and police,” he recalled. “And first, we thought maybe they’re coming for me in the middle of the night. But no, they came to put the fire down.”
Pawlowski added that he went outside thinking his neighbor’s house was on fire but immediately realised it was his garage that was set ablaze, The Christian Post reports.
“Someone set our property on fire. Someone wants us dead,” he said. “And I’m thinking, ‘Why? I’m feeding the poor. I’m feeding Muslims. I’m feeding homosexuals. I’m feeding Whites and Asians and Blacks. I’m feeding people and I’m not hurting anyone, and they want me dead, and they want my children dead?”
While the exact origin of the fire remains a mystery, Pawlowski concluded that” someone put fire into a blue bin that was with cupboards and that’s how the fire started.”
“They pushed the bin to the door — the wooden door of the garage — and the whole garage started to burn,” he continued. He also suggested the fire could have been from a lighter or “someone holding the lighter and putting the bin on fire […] Only God knows at this moment how the fire started,” Pawlowski said.
