A Christian pastor who preaches that Covid-19 is a ‘hoax’ designed to usher in a ‘new world order’ has been charged with sedition.
Revival Church leader Paul Furlong, 53, was arrested Sunday morning after 50 of his devoted worshipers staged an anti-lockdown protest at Narre Warren oval, in southeastern Melbourne.
Days earlier, Furlong posted a video to Facebook stating that he had chosen to “obey God over man” and that his church would open for Sunday services in violation of Victoria’s seven-day lockdown.

“My church is open. I said I wouldn’t close the church again. This Sunday at 10am, my church the Revival Church in Narre Warren… we are open for worship,” Mr Furlong said in Thursday’s clip.
Victoria is in the midst of phase four of the lockdown as Melbourne battles a coronavirus outbreak, now 54 cases after 11 new infections surfaced on Monday.
In the stay-at-home context, Victorians are only allowed to leave their homes for five essential reasons, with dining in restaurants and public gatherings in between many prohibited activities.
But Furlong told his flock there is no “evidence” that Covid exists, calling it a “plan demic.”
“It’s just a cold. We know there is no scientific evidence that Covid exists,” he said.
It is the biggest terrifying hoax of the media, of power giants and the big boys to bring in a one world government and a one world agenda.
‘Come on, wake up people. Stand up for your rights.’

Several conspiracy theories claim that a group of powerful elites are exploiting Covid in an attempt to establish a new world order and global government.
Supporters of these conspiracies often claim that the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed about 3.5 million people worldwide, is being used to emphasize the need for cross-border governance.
About 50 Furlong supporters stormed Narre Warren’s oval on Sunday to protest the state’s stay-at-home orders.
Police stood by while the group made speeches and ordered them to leave later.
A man was arrested after being pushed to the ground by police, who later issued five violation notices for violating the health officer’s directions.

A man was arrested after being forced to the ground by public order officers, and police later issued five notices of violating the health officer’s instructions.
Furlong was charged with sedition and violating bail.
He has been remanded in custody and will appear in Frankston court on June 10.
The pastor was also fined in February after more than 50 people attended one of his indoor church services – in violation of Covid capacity rules.
Last year, Victoria went through one of the world’s strictest lockdowns, shutting down citizens for 112 consecutive days.
A growing number of residents are getting angrier by the latest round of restrictions.
Victoria Police also made 14 arrests and imposed 55 fines worth $1,652 each after 150 people gathered in the CBD on Saturday to protest the state’s latest shutdown.
