Bill de Blasio, a democratic mayor of New York City, vowed to indefinitely shutter churches and bar them from conducting services if they did not comply with the government’s recommendations on coronavirus.

The far-left mayor said that while “we need our confidence in this time of crisis,” he allowed the NYPD to “disperse” congregations of worshippers and would not hesitate to order the building to be permanently closed.

“So, I want to say to all those who are planning the opportunity for religious services this weekend — if you go to your temple, if you go to your church and attempt to perform services after you have been told too much not to do so, our law enforcement officers would have no choice but to close down those services,” de Blasio said.

“I’m not doing that with much happiness. It’s the last thing I’d like to do, because I understand how important people’s religions are to them, and we need our spirituality in this time of crisis, but we don’t need meetings that can place us at risk, “he said.

“No practice of faith endorses something that endangers the members of that religion,” de Blasio said.

“So, the NYPD, the Fire Department, the Buildings Department, and everyone has been instructed that if they see worship services going on, they will go to the officials of that congregation and inform them that they need to stop the services and disperse.” “If that doesn’t happen, they will take further action to the point of fines and potentially shut down the building permanently,” de Blasio conti.

“Once again, that’s going to continue this weekend. Again, I’m sorry I have to tell you this, but anyone who hears this should take it seriously, “said the mayor.

“You have been warned; you need to interrupt programs, help people exercise their religion in various ways, but not in crowds, not in meetings that might place people at risk.”
