Twitter user @davenewworld_2 posted the video below earlier this morning and it’s quickly garnered over 10 million views. Ten million! The 20-second clip is of a man singing a religious song mid-flight. It wasn’t clear which airline or route this occurred on but I’m guessing it was Easy Jet in the U.K. as many of the passengers are maskless (the UK ended their mask mandate last month), the engine cover is orange and an advertisement on each seat reads: “Enjoy our new summer range onboard.” No airline in the U.S. has that, that I’m aware of, and no U.S. flight attendants would allow people to go unmasked.

I grew up Catholic and up until the pandemic began, I attended mass regularly. Regardless, I’m not sure how I would feel about a dude just busting out his guitar mid-flight and starting to sing Christian songs to a completely captive audience. I’m guessing there was a group of passengers going on some kind of church trip but clearly, there were some passengers who didn’t appreciate it.

I know you believe you mean well, but please don’t preach the gospel every day. Please do not foist your religion on those who do not ask you to. Please don’t.
If you want to be a good Christian, lead by example: be kind, compassionate, and love your neighbor. Period.

Update: According to TMZ, the “video was shot/posted by Jack Jensz Jr. — who seems to be a pastor of some sort, and who founded an org called Kingdom Realm Ministries. video was shot/posted by Jack Jensz Jr. Him and his congregation have been in Europe lately helping out the refugees fleeing Ukraine, and according to his FB timeline — this might’ve been shot on a flight to Germany around April 9, so a full week ago at this point. It just seems to be getting picked up now.”

This Christian is appalled. I’d be ok with anyone performing in a corner of the airport – but in your face on a plane? That’s just rude – and rudeness is not a fruit of the Spirit.
