Gov Cuomo Shows His Clear Bias Blaming Religious Groups For COVID Spread
It appears Liberals think it is everyone else's fault that COVID has been spreading. New York Gov Cuomo claims that it is religious groups that have been spreading the virus not the swarms of Biden supporters that have been out celebrating a candidate that hasn't even officially won yet. The Catholic Church has decided to sue. They are demanding that they be treated better with less restriction in order to stay afloat during the pandemic.
"New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration argued that religious gatherings were being treated “more favorably” than other gatherings in a Wednesday filing in response to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn’s petition to the U.S. Supreme Court seeking relief from attendance restrictions."
"In an emergency filing earlier this month, the diocese asked the Supreme Court to block Cuomo’s lockdown restrictions. Diocese officials argued that businesses, both essential and nonessential, were permitted to operate without capacity restrictions in the same zones where houses of worship were subject to limits.
“Absent relief on an as-applied basis, thousands of the diocese’s parishioners in Brooklyn and Queens will continue to be deprived of their core free exercise rights on a daily basis until the matter is resolved in the lower courts,” the diocese’s filing said, “even though it is undisputed that the diocese has complied with all prior health regulations and operated safely without any COVID-19 spread since being permitted to reopen several months ago.”
In its response, Cuomo’s office said the diocese has “not demonstrated that any of the secular businesses or activities it identifies” have the “same COVID-19 super-spreader potential as indoor religious gatherings.”
So even churches are hurting during this pandemic and Cuomo in typical Dem fashion doesn't think it's a real concern. As you saw he said religious gatherings are being treated "more favorably" than other gatherings, showing his feelings towards the matter. But really we have all seen Cuomo in action during this pandemic and maybe it's a good thing that he is not focused on fixing the problem.
