“God Did Not Do That”: NY Governor Cuomo Takes Credit for Flattening the Curve


New cases and hospitalizations due to COVID-19 in New York have consistently fallen the last few days, a sign that the peak may be behind us.

However, New York Governor Cuomo insists that people, not God, should get the credit for flattening the curve.

“God did not do that. Faith did not do that,” Cuomo said. “A lot of pain and suffering did that.”

Some observers have even compared Cuomo’s statements to the famous claim that “God himself” could not sink the Titanic.

Cuomo’s remarks come after highly publicized crackdowns on church members.

Church members in various communities were ticketed for attending drive-in services. 

Officers were also instructed to record license plate numbers of churchgoers at Maryville Baptist Church.

The open hostility towards church members got the attention of Attorney General Bill Barr, who warned leaders to stop targeting the faithful and their First Amendment rights.
