Remember back when I mentioned that, amidst the Christian church/synagogue shutdowns, arrests, fines, and threats from His (dis)Honor Bill DeBalledZero, nobody seemed to be including mosques in all that?
Yeah, well. About all that.
A Syracuse mosque is still open for daily prayers amid the Coronavirus shutdown as Christians are threatened and fined for attending drive-in services.
New York is the country’s Coronavirus epicenter with more than 18,000 deaths, however this mosque is still open for prayers.
This mosque located on the north side was once the Holy Trinity Catholic Church, but it closed down due to lack of parishioners — now it is considered a victory mosque.
It ought to be. Because that’s precisely what it is.
The Muslims who attend this mosque are not practicing social distancing. They are standing and praying closer than 6 feet apart, so why aren’t the police raiding this mosque and threatening the attendees with imprisonment and or fines?
Because Islam, silly. Another report:
While virtually every church in the United States is shut down due to coronavirus, and those few willing to defy lockdown orders are threatened with arrest or hauled to jail, a New York mosque is operating with impunity during the pandemic.
The mosque, in Syracuse, New York, had its operating procedures detailed by gushing local media, which described how the facility has modified its practices to adhere with social distancing during the China virus pandemic.
The building, formerly a Catholic church, is disinfected between services – not by cleaning professionals, but by volunteers – and video reveals those worshipers brave enough to leave their homes during the pandemic are not social distancing.
In video to YouTube uploaded by Syracuse.com, a small group of worshipers is seen praising Allah far less than six feet apart, failing to adhere to social distancing procedures and potentially defeating the purpose of worshiping in a room completely covered in plastic.
While this mosque is allowed to operate during the coronavirus pandemic, albeit under slightly modified procedures, Christians are being forced out of their churches across the country.
Shocking, yet not in the least surprising. Back to Cristina for some specifics:
Parishioners who attended a drive-in service at Temple Baptist Church in Mississippi were fined $500 each by police for violating ‘social distancing’ orders.
20 police cars swarmed King James Bible Baptist Church in Mississippi and pastor Charles Hamilton Jr., was told by a cop that his rights were suspended.
A Kentucky church parking lot was littered with nails on Easter Sunday and police officers harassed churchgoers by recording their license plates and leaving notes on their cars.
That’s but a few examples from an ever-expanding list. The conclusion is as obvious as it is appalling:
Clearly Christians are being singled out and persecuted.
Yup. It amounts to nothing more nor less than the mopping-up phase of the PC Left’s long campaign against America That Was, as Proggie walks the battlefield shooting the wounded.
Shocked, I’m just shocked that such is going on. Would never have guessed it.
Your winnings, Inspector.
Maybe the old adage should apply here. I’ll take this Lock Down seriously when they start acting like this Lock Down is serious.
Some people are starting to realize that there is a scam going on here and they’ve been had.
It’s a 6-7 weeks too late, but we may be able to get out of this.
Heh, Trump rattled sabres in the Persian Gulf just to keep oil prices from their fall.
“…just to keep oil prices from their fall.”
Heh, that thought crossed my mind as well.
It would be weird wouldn’t it?
We are living in Interesting Times.
Posted this on the Insty Open Thread last night. If you’re a Steely Dan fan you might recognize it. I’m proud because I worked on it a while to really get it right.
• I scrawl like a viper
Through these infernal threads
Make puns to these sinners
Languid, they can’t comprehend
I comment when the sun goes down
Open thread I cover that game in town
A blog of my own
Is something I never will own.
Learn to work the satire
I, I say just what I feeI
Drink Scotch whiskey
All thread long
And pun behind the squeals
They got a name for the Bloggers in the World
I want a name when I comment
They call Instapundit the Puppy Blend
Call me kennycan
You have a gift. Very good.
