"The Right To Observe Our Religion"

October 8, 2020 |

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is threatening to close Orthodox Jewish synagogues if they don’t obey his limits on public gatherings, and Mayor Bill DeBlasio is threatening to arrest Orthodox Jews if they dare gather to worship. But they give their blessings to huge mass gatherings of violent, black-clad protesters who behave like fascists. Now, let me think, who else did that?...

The Orthodox Jewish community responded angrily to the threats and restrictions last night, with hundreds of people rallying in Brooklyn and even lighting a fire in protest. Local Jewish lawmakers slammed Cuomo for his “scientifically and constitutionally questionable shutdown of our communities,” and city councilman Kalman Yeger told the crowd, “We are not going to be deprived of the right that we have in America, like everybody else in America, the right to observe our religion.”

Sadly, that right is also under assault all across America, but I’m heartened to see many churches and synagogues fighting back and winning in the courts. Also by doing what they did in Brooklyn: staging a mass protest, which the politicians threatening them can't object to because they've already declared that mass protests don’t spread the virus, particularly when there’s fire involved.

    Well I guess we can all feel better about going to church as long as we can have a fire.

    You should have to have a valid social security to get benefits. How does an illegal immigrant get a valid card?

    I believe Cuomo and DeBlasio are acting in the pattern of the Nazi's of the 1930's and 40's. They should be removed from office. The US Supreme Court should hand them their walking papers for violating the Constitution so blatantly.

    To whom it may concern,
    It may be that as the serpent lifted up in the wilderness by Moses defined the first appearance of the Lord Jesus, the Star-Spangled Banner lifted up defines both the first appearance and second appearance of the Lord Jesus.

    The Authorized King James Version
    Isaiah 62:10 Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.

    Glory to the LORD
    The Star-Spangled Banner
    In fulfillment of Psalm sixty verse four, God has given a banner that has fifty stars, and has thirteen stripes, and is red, white, and blue, to we the people of his house, that it may be displayed because of his only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus.
