    I understand the need for social distancing. I understand the need for quarantine. But when you threaten to close houses of worship *forever* if they fail to comply with your orders???

    Excuse me, Mein Führer, but you don't have that authority. Not in this country.

    >>>>"I want to say to all those who are preparing for the potential of religious services this weekend: If you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services." De Blasio promised to "take additional action up to the point of fines and potentially closing the building permanently," if worshippers did not comply.<<<<

    NYC may close churches, synagogues that don't comply with coronavirus orders, de Blasio warns

    It would never stand in a court of law. Still, it provides useful insight into the mentality of the person making the threat. The type of person who should never see the inside of the halls of power; who under the guise of liberalism "has a totalitarian inside screaming to get out." And we have many of them.

    Of course. Freedoms being ripped away by making the population fear and intimidation. We are losing rights and no one cares because of this sickness. Yes it serious and so is the flu where we had 39 million infected, 400,000 hospitalized and so far 24,000 dead and counting. I don't like the smell test in all this it sits wrong and I am still afraid all freedom's will die and the first will be speech and religion. I hate the fear the media created and I still don't trust anyone in the Government with the exception of Trump and Pence. I know people will hate me here and fight me, I can't help it this is the way I feel and have no other outlet. Our freedoms are gone and it is starting in NY

    Well, I guess that the Mayor is desperate and is trying to get the attention of those who are ignoring the orders given by himself and the Governor.

    This is not like any other flu. We know nothing about it. At all. So I get it. There is no way they can permanently close down places of worship. Only during the pandemic.

    The nursing homes in our area don't let sick people enter and visit. Yet many nursing homes, including one down the street, have dozens of cases. If sick people can't come in, it had to be someone who appeared well who brought the germ in.
