Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re discussing the idea of religious persecution regarding Pastor James Coates of GraceLife Church in Alberta, Canada. Pastor Coates is in jail right now for holding his church services at full capacity instead of the 15% capacity mandated by the government. A point of contention among Christian circles has been whether this qualifies as religious persecution or not. To give further details and commentary on the situation, Erin Coates, the pastor’s wife, joins us. We address the theology of the situation and offer some encouragement for the future.
