Australian Police Disrupt Church Service to Enforce Mask Mandates

Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 3.9 | Relevance 4.8

Outraged worshippers watched in horror as police stormed a church and disrupted mass to check if parishioners were complying with Western Australia’s strict indoor mask mandates. Religious leaders are calling the intrusion a massive overreach. One parishioner said it was, “troubling to see the liturgy that you love being stopped by police.” Police defended the interruption by claiming five people were not wearing masks when they arrived.
