Revelation 13:16-18 New International Version (NIV)

16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

This is NOT some Religious post that's going to preach to you.  I started with the Bible Scripture above because of its seemingly ironic relation to what's going on regarding the announcement that New York State is cutting religious exemption to vaccine mandates.  What does that mean? (watch the following videos):

Governor Cuomo said this, according to reports:

"While I understand and respect freedom of religion, our first job is to protect the public health and by signing this measure into law, we will help prevent further transmissions and stop this outbreak right in its tracks."

NYS Senator Brad Holyman said this according to news reports:

"We are facing an unprecedented public health crisis.The atrocious peddlers of junk science and fraudulent medicine who we know as anti-vaxxers have spent years sowing unwarranted doubt and fear, but it is time for legislators to confront them head-on."
