The trembling left won’t let religion stop the COVID Cops from enforcing their COVID fear edicts.
Barnard College told its observant Jewish students that they would have to violate their religious beliefs and use a mobile application on Shabbat and during the High Holy Days for COVID-19 monitoring.
Observant Jews are prohibited from using technology on the Sabbath and High Holy Days, which includes the recent Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, according to Campus Reform.
Cynthia Yang, the head of Barnard’s Pandemic Response Team, sent an email to students who identified themselves as a “Sabbath-observer” to Barnard Residential Life and Housing Department.
The email came in just hours before the start of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year.
“We recognize that how you have practiced religious traditions in the past may not align with the use of technology during the high holy days or the Sabbath, but this year it is paramount for the community’s health and safety (as well as your own) that you abide by the Barnard pledge and follow the College’s policies and procedures,” Yang wrote.
In other words, “F your faith. COVID mitigation is the new religion. And you’d better practice what we preach.”
According to Yang, COVID waits on no faith or tradition.
“The campus communities that intersect at Barnard and Columbia cannot wait until Wednesday night for students to report symptoms or respond to a notification of a positive test”
“The chain of transmission can only be shortened when individuals act responsively and quickly,” she added.
So Rosh Hashanah had to take a back seat to the COVID cops.
In the land of the painfully Woke, particularly in the COVID age, belief must be reserved for the science and the scientists, and they must be followed without question in the Religion of Fear.
