Wisconsin’s Elmbrook School District is fully reopening for the coming school year — a decision that was expectedly met with criticism. Nevertheless, the school is requiring students to wear masks while on campus, and a certain Christian parent took umbrage at the rule, saying social distancing and wearing masks are “pagan rituals of satanic worshipers.”

“My kids are Christian they are not subject to wearing masks,” the woman, identified as Heidi Anderson, said at an Elmbrook Board of Education meeting on Tuesday.

“Six-foot distance and masks are pagan rituals of satanic worshipers,” Anderson said. “Absorb that in. 6 feet. Where does 6 feet come from, people? Why is not 3? Why is it not 5? Why is it not 10? Why is it not 30? Why is it 6?”

“We are Christians,” she continued. “Our children do not practice Satanic worship. We don’t have them stand six feet apart from each other with facial coverings. Facts and data have been suggested here with no logic. These masks are not proven to stop the virus.”

She went on to accuse the district of relying on the advice of doctors “who are under the control of large medical organizations which benefit financially from the continuation of this emergency.”

“These draconian measures for a disease that has very low morbidity, which is much less likely to happen to our kids than them getting in a car accident and dying, or their grandparents falling in a nursing home, is draconian Socialist tactics and overreach… You are elected to serve us,” she said.

The Friendly Atheist’s Hemant Mehta points out that the 6ft requirement is scientific, not Satanic.

“What’s really troubling is the insinuation that this woman goes to a church where there’s no distancing, and no masks, and no one telling them to change their ways,” Mehta writes. “How many people in this family are asymptomatic carriers? How many people have to die because of her idiotic beliefs and the school board’s negligence?”

Trump tells Fox & Friends that RBG’s dying wish may be a hoax written by Adam Schiff

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday told "Fox & Friends" that he believed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dying wish may have been a "hoax" concocted by Democrats.

During the interview, the president was asked about Ginsburg saying that she did not want to be replaced until after the 2020 presidential election.

"I don't know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi," the president said. "I would be more inclined to the second."

As CNN fact checker Daniel Dale notes, Ginsburg's dying wish was "conveyed by the granddaughter."

Meet People of Praise: Here’s why this far-right cult shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the Supreme Court

Published

This week, President Donald Trump is scheduled to announce his nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court—and one of the possible nominees is 48-year-old Amy Coney Barrett, a federal appellate judge. Trump has made it clear that he plans to nominate someone who is not only fiscally conservative, but a severe social conservative who would have no problem overturning the Roe v. Wade ruling of 1973. Barrett fits the bill, especially in light of her reported association with an extremist, predominantly Catholic group called People of Praise.

Asked if the nomination would be announced "before Wednesday," she replied, "I think that's very likely."

MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Monday morning also hinted the announcement would come Tuesday.

President Trump says he will soon nominate a justice to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
