Going back some time in the recent history of this forum, reader Barry Black indicated a proposition to presidentially 'legislate' (even though procedurally questionable) the limitations of participation of religious endeavors, so as to not allow in secular terms, the interference so many are afraid of that may come from overzealous religiosity, an absurdly ridiculous notion that spawns from overly zealous progressive sectors of the political realm. Though in rhetoric, 'religion' is still purportedly protected 'Constitutionally,' the assaults are never-ending. COVID mandates are the latest.
But what of the concessions to Islamic tenets that are being allowed into the United States from Afghanistan?
Will COVID mandates apply to that under the 46th American Administration? What will their leader say next?
