Demonstration for religious exemption rights
Friday, May 13, Staten Island, 10 am
It’s time to stop the di Blasio religious exemption inquisition. They’re coming to Staten Island this Friday to interrogate and pass judgment on three families that are applying for religious exemptions from vaccine mandates. We need you to come out and support the families and make a statement that di Blasio’s inquisition has to stop.
Please come to this Friday at 10 am for a show of solidarity with the families and for a press event at 10:30. Bring family and friends. Please bring signs focused on religious exemption rights only. Public School PS R373, 91 Henderson Avenue, Staten Island, NY.
New York is the only state in America that allows public employees to interrogate people and pass judgment on their religious beliefs as part of applying for a religious exemption from vaccine mandates to attend school. Forty-six other states provide exemptions automatically upon providing a letter or filling out a form. And in the past few months the di Blasio administration appears to have completely ceased issuing religious exemptions. New York City is the only school district in the state, or the USA, that has full-time inquisitors, some making $100,000 per year, who do nothing but interrogate people about their religious beliefs and delve into their souls to determine whether they have “sincere and genuine” religious beliefs. No one else in America knows how to do this, Pope Francis famously said, “Who am I to judge?” but di Blasio’s inquisitors have it all figured out.
They are enforcing an illegal quota on the number of exemptions issued,
They are revoking long-standing exemptions,
They are refusing to provide translators for interrogations,
They are denying applications and refusing to say why as required by NY law,
They are denying children educations.
