Priest From Lockdown-Defying Church Dies Of COVID

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

A San Francisco priest has died from COVID-19, a week after his church temporarily shut down after at least three priests and clergy members tested positive for COVID-19. Father Bob Stein of Saints Peter and Paul Church died early Tuesday morning, per a statement published by the North Beach institution on its website.

The church has repeatedly evaded COVID-19 health ordinances during the pandemic, warranting a cease-and-desist from City Attorney Dennis Herrera to the Archdiocese of San Francisco. It also held a wedding with an estimated 100 attendees, which led to at least ten guests testing positive for coronavirus.
