Charlie Kirk, founder and president of Turning Point USA, spoke at two Washington churches Sunday, after threats from Antifa had threatened to cancel his speaking engagements.
Last week, Motion Church in Puyallup, WA, cancelled Kirk’s speaking engagement, after the anarchist group had threatened to create an autonomous zone around the venue and pledged to target the church leadership as well as its members with violence.
Two churches in the area, Westgate Chapel in Edmonds and The House Church in Snohomish, were able to host Kirk and hundreds of attendees in packed halls with standing room only. The details of the events were spread through word of mouth rather than social media. Estimates of the crowds at the two venues exceeded 1,500 people.
At the Westgate Chapel, Kirk and Senior Pastor Alec Rowlands engaged in a question answer format discussion with topics spanning the religious and political spectrums.
Kirk’s message at The House Church to a standing room only crowd in the congregation’s gym, discussed how the Bible described the need for churches, pastors and parishioners to be involved in their government. Kirk argued that pastors and their flocks should be discussing politics rather than avoiding it and said, “We have a lot of secular conservatives fighting for your right to worship.”
