NEW YORK CITY: Tens of thousands of people were permitted to gather for a protest outside the Brooklyn Museum on Eastern Parkway, to rally against racial discrimination.

But the hundreds of contact tracing workers hired by the city under de Blasio’s new “test and trace” campaign have been instructed not to ask anyone who’s tested positive for COVID-19 whether they recently attended a demonstration or protest.

Meanwhile, Jewish children are being singled out for having had the unmitigated gall to PROTEST against continued city restrictions on playgrounds and parks.

NEW YORK: Approximately 2,500 offenders were released from Rikers early, supposedly to protect them from getting COVID-19.

At least 250 of them have been arrested 450 times for re-offending … so far.

NEW YORK: Two Catholic priests from upstate New York and a trio of Orthodox Jewish congregants from Brooklyn have filed a federal lawsuit against New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, his Attorney General Letitia James, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for violation of civil rights by prejudicial orders and selective enforcement.

Specifically, they charge these three with violating the plaintiffs’ rights to free exercise of religion, freedom of speech, assembly and expressive association, and due process, under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Governor Cuomo is also accused of acting against New York state law and the New York State Constitution.

FLORIDA: Florida State University’s Student Senate President Jack Denton was removed from office over comments he made in private group chats that were deemed “transphobic” and “racist.

Denton is Catholic. All he did was warn his peers that several positions of the Black Lives Matter movement and the ACLU run counter to Catholic teaching on abortion, transgenderism, and homosexuality, which is true.

SCOTUS: Republican-appointed Justices John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch joined the U.S. Supreme Court’s liberals Monday in dealing a drastic blow to religious liberty in this country.

The court ruled 6-3 that longstanding anti-discrimination law should be reinterpreted to cover homosexuality and gender confusion.

Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas dissented, panning the majority opinion as “legislation” written under the “deceptive” guise of “interpreting a statute,” reminding the majority that the court’s duty “is limited to saying what the law is” rather than adding to it.

Trump’s other appointee, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, wrote his own dissenting opinion, in which he noted that the “responsibility to amend Title VII belongs to Congress and the President in the legislative process, not to this Court.

VACCINES: Currently, New York, California, Mississippi, West Virginia, and Maine deny all vaccine exemptions based on religious belief. And legislators in Illinois and Colorado are pushing to do so as well.

If passed, the Colorado bill would force all doctors and medical staff to give vaccinations, even if they are in a situation where they believe it would not be in that child’s best interest.

In addition, parents who want a different vaccination schedule than what the state demands could only get an exemption if they complete re-education classes.

Making vaccines mandatory is a direct attack on our God-given, constitutionally protected religious liberty.

  1. Before and after hearing death/near death experiences, Jesus is the first person I want to meet after departing this world. His family is mine. I don’t have anything against the picture or sentiment, it is sweet. It does look like JW stock (Watch Tower…).

    Two days ago, sent mail to some family (one converted to JW a few years ago). It was an admonishment (not that I frequent in these). If Jesus isn’t the focus of the teaching, then the teaching is false.

    I don’t think it would be wrong, but when I pass on, if my family is standing, waiting on me, I’ll be asking, “Where is Jesus?” I trust Him and His flock more than my own F&B.

    Thanks again for allowing me to indulge and sare.
