California’s Regime Shuts Down Christian Preschool For Declining to Mask Three-Year Old Kids
California regulators have forced the shutdown of a Christian preschool in El Cajon for declining to force the state’s mask mandate, which applies even in indoor settings on private property.
Foothills Christian Church Preschool was temporarily shut down last month by the California Department of Social Services. with the school’s director, Tiffany McHugh, legally barred from working with children for declining to enforce a mask mandate on the two and three-year old children who attend the school.
McHugh is permanently banned from working with children.
“Several months ago, this church, this preschool became a target by the Department of Social Services. Basically, what it boils down to is they were not happy with how many of our children did not have masks on,” Senior Pastor David Hoffman said of the harassment his church congregation’s school has incurred from the authorities. “They came here, they visited. They found a few other violations, which our director rectified in 24 hours. But the state kept coming back, 11 times.”
“They came out for nine and a half hours at a time on seven different visits — 11 overall — when so many of the preschools in our area — East County of San Diego — hadn’t had more than one visit in five years,” he pointed out. “So they targeted us. They came after us and [were] very, very hostile. They interviewed three-year-olds [and] four-year-olds without their parents’ knowledge or permission. They were antagonistic towards our teachers. These are preschool teachers — I think we know what preschool teachers are like.”
Foothills Christian Church is appealing the state’s shutdown of the preschool in the court system. The state is claiming that the teachers and staff at the school only told students to put on masks when state inspectors arrived, as if there was some pressing, real medical need for mere toddlers to wear face masks.
America was founded on the very premise of adhering to your religious beliefs without interference from the government. The state of California appears to have breached such a basic proposition, replacing the very concept of ‘freedom’ with alternatives such as obedience towards liberal oligarchs and the government.
