A pastor in Pennsylvania has promised a "Woodstock"-like Easter celebration later this month, threatening to defy the state's coronavirus lockdowns that strictly limit the number of people that can congregate in one spot.

Jonathan Shuttlesworth promised an "outdoor Easter blowout service" in Prosperity, Pennsylvania. He described it as "a national gathering" where congregants will be able to "gather and lift up Jesus Christ."

? Shuttlesworth's announcement comes days after police arrested Florida pastor Rodney Howard-Browne for holding a worship service with too many people. Authorities said he exhibited a "reckless disregard for human life" in holding the service.
