    No, I really don't. Having lived in Africa for many years I know what its like there. I've not spent all my life in Sweden with its flawless infrastructure, tar roads, rails links, logistics and budgets.

    Many countries people can't get enough food, they don't have access to healthcare, electricity or running water, yet you somehow think that a vaccine can pitch up in a place like that that has been kept at the temperature of an icecream?

    And you call my knowledge skewed? Jesus fucking Christ.

    African countries that are developing countries aren't the only developing countries.

    Covid-19: US Supreme Court backs religious groups over New York caps
    The US Supreme Court has temporarily blocked New York from enforcing attendance limits at places of worship in areas hit hard by coronavirus.

    In a 5-4 vote, the court ruled that the state's congregational cap violated rights to religious freedom.

    In an unsigned order, it said the rules "single[d] out houses of worship for especially harsh treatment."

    This was one of the first consequential rulings since conservative Justice Amy Coney Barrett was appointed.

    I did not even think of that, but yeah, what is stopping them saying that? Faith is more important than some silly fire safety rules (or anything else of the sort) I guess :/

    Pretty sure the theocracy advocates on the court didn’t think it through either.

    This pandemic exposed the stupidity of the masses to an unprecedented level. About 50% don't want to be vaccinated and this will prolong the shitshow for another year.

    Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote of his ruling that it seemed contradictory to say it was unsafe to go to church but not to shop for a new bike.

    "So, at least according to the Governor, it may be unsafe to go to church, but it is always fine to pick up another bottle of wine, shop for a new bike," Gorsuch wrote

    -----
    If the governor wants restrictions then he needs to apply them equally.

    They were applied equally. See, you could go to church but the number of people allowed was limited to 10. Just like every other public gathering.

    For reference: https://www.governor.ny.gov/sites/go...ryGuidance.pdf

    Please show me where it says you can’t attend religious services at all.

    O but businesses open to the public are exempt?
    How the fuck do you imagine that's a good idea let alone fair and equal?

    They weren’t. Unless they were essential businesses. Attending church in person isn’t essential for any religion. Or any person. You won’t die because you have to do virtual religious services. You very well may die if you can’t get food or drink.

    But the businesses that weren't affected weren't essential businesses, while the religious were.
    You citing what the governor wants...and what he wants to call "law." But he's stepping on federal law.
    Businesses will thank him for this weekend. Many of which I'm certainy won't be "essential."

    You need to check again. They had very clear guidelines for which businesses must close and which could remain open. Nice try though.

    Oh, and while many were forced to close churches could remain open uninterrupted. Just with slightly fewer marks for their grift.

    Yeah this isn't true at all. Not sure where you heard or read this but you are misinformed.

    It’s not even hard to see the actual guidelines...

    I don't blame people who aren't part of any risk group for being more afraid of an insufficiently and hastily tested vaccine than a virus that has a << 1% chance to kill them.
