    Bill de Blasio Threatens to 'Permanently' Shut Down Churches and Synagogues

    I have a feeling this guy has never met a provision of the Constitution that he believes applies to him.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is now threatening to "permanently" close down religious meetings such as gatherings at churches and synagogues. He didn't mention mosques, because of course he didn't. Political correctness and all that.

    These comments came in response to the question of what will happen to people who choose to worship together during the pandemic.

    De Blasio: churches and synagogues that hold worship services may be closed permanently

    — Matthew Schmitz (@matthewschmitz) March 29, 2020

    I don't care how bad the Wuhan virus gets, there's no legal authority for government officials to permanently shut down worship services. None at all. They can make requests and set guidelines, but it's a gross violation of the Constitution to shut down the use of private property for religious services. There are some things that are more important than short term measures to fight a health crisis and religious freedom is one of those things.

    What this shows is the attitude that Bill de Blasio carries as mayor of the country's largest city. He doesn't even flinch making the suggestion that he's going to fine churches out of existence and then shutter their buildings via the city bureaucracy. How anyone could ever vote for this person is a total mystery to me.

    Churches should absolutely work with local leaders to help manage the current pandemic, and as far as I've seen, there's been pretty much universal participation in those efforts. But no public official should ever utter the threat that they are going to permanently close down religious services over public policy disputes, even dire ones. There is no excuse for that and anyone that finds themselves being targeted by de Blasio should sue him into oblivion.

    Thats interesting because this is probably the reason why NYC's numbers are so high...he encouraged New Yorkers who didn't seem sick to go to the movies and continue to mingle.

    Just weeks ago, DeBlasio encouraged NYC... - Donald Trump Jr. | Facebook
