One of the most known controversies that was built up around Pastor Pawlowski revolved around his statements on protocols relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this year in June, Pastor Pawlowski was arrested for flouting COVID-19 rules while organising a church service.
The service allegedly did not take into account the protocols relating to wearing masks and ensuring social distancing, according to reports from Newsweek.
Pastor Pawlowski was arrested alongside his brother Dawid for violating that order, Calgary Police said.
Months before his arrest, Pastor Pawlowski was at the centre of another controversy. The religious leader, who resides in Canada’s Calgary, tagged the law enforcement officials of the country as “Nazi communist fascists” and “Gestapos”, according to reports from Newsweek.
“I don’t care what you have to say, out. Out of this property, you Nazis. Out! Gestapo is not allowed here. Do not come back, you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in the church during the Passover. You gestapo Nazi communist fascists!”, Newsweek reported.
Pastor Pawlowski, according to reports from Insider, claimed that the floods in Canada happened because god was unhappy about homosexuality. This statement was highly criticised by the progressive and left-wing communities of both the United States and Canada.
The 48-year-old recently made headlines after violence broke out at an event being organised by him in United States’ Portland. Members of the left-wing community Antifa and right-wing group Proud Boys clashed at the religious event.
