Churchgoers Breaking COVID Rules in The Netherlands Attack Journalist Outside Church (VIDEO)

Onward Christian soldiers.

In The Netherlands, the faithful had enough this week and gave more than an interview to a local reporter.

The members of the Mieraskerk church in the town of Krimpen aan den Ijssel near the city of Rotterdam attacked a local reporter who was there to film them attending church.

The country still has lockdown orders. The reporter was not expecting this.

This took place after he hounded and filmed churchgoers entering the church.

Deutsche Welle reported:

Police in the Netherlands arrested a man after he hit and kicked a journalist outside a Protestant church that had opened for a full congregation on Sunday despite the country’s strict lockdown.

Reporters showed up at the Mieraskerk church in the town of Krimpen aan den Ijssel near the city of Rotterdam.

The church made headlines after reports that it was going ahead with a service for its entire congregation. The Netherlands is under a strict lockdown and has a rising COVID-19 rate.

The journalist Jacco van Giessen shared a video of the incident on Twitter, writing that “the pain has gone but I am still shocked — I was attacked during my work this morning by a churchgoer in Krimpen.”
