UK Police Threaten Good Friday Mass With Fines Or Jail
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Darren Grimes, a conservative political pundit and host of Reasoned UK, posted a video on Twitter showing police officers in the United Kingdom abruptly interrupting a gathering on Good Friday and threatening attendees with fines and/or arrest.

“So, please explain why,” asked one of the church-goers.

“Ladies and gentlemen, this gathering is unfortunately unlawful under these coronavirus regulations we have currently,” answered one of the officers. “You are not allowed to meet inside with this many people under the law.”

At this moment in time, you need to go home. Failure to comply with this direction to leave and go to your home address ultimately can lead you to be fined two hundred pounds, or if you fail to give your details, you can be arrested.

I suggest, ladies and gentlemen, though it is Good Friday, and I appreciate your right to worship, that this gathering is unlawful. So, please leave.

Grimes added a comment, pointing out the hypocrisy of the situation: “Maybe we should start holding mass outside of Batley Grammar School, gatherings there seem to be entirely permissible?”

Some on social media actually agreed with the officers’ actions:

Others had a different take:
