Right-wing megachurch pastor Rodney Howard-Browne regularly uses his Sunday services to spread wild conspiracy theories, and his Easter Sunday service was no exception.
Howard-Browne, who was among the evangelical leaders who laid hands upon and prayed over President Donald Trump in the Oval Office in 2017, broadcast his Easter service from home this year because he temporarily closed his church after he was arrested last month for holding in-person services in violation of local stay-at-home orders implemented to stop the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
