Orthodox Jew City Clerk Refuses Tax Payments from Uncircumcised Males

PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND (The Nil Admirari) - Earlier today, a city clerk in the tax collection office of Providence, Rhode Island announced his religious beliefs would not allow him to process any tax payments from uncircumcised males. Seth Weiss, an Orthodox Jew, invited all male residents of Providence to bring him a doctor's note stating they were circumcised, or take advantage of his offer of a "complimentary circumcision" if they wanted to pay their taxes and avoid non-payment penalties.


"My religious beliefs say all males should be circumcised on the eighth day of their life by a mohel. So unless male residents of Providence who want to pay taxes on their car, property, or whatever else are circumcised, I cannot process their tax payments in good conscience. God's law prevents me from doing so," explained Weiss.

Weiss added, "I happen to be a mohel, and I am offering a complimentary after-hours circumcision to all tax-paying males in Providence so I can process their tax payments. Males who are already circumcised just need to send me a doctor's note confirming that. Please don't send me pictures, as they cannot be confirmed."


Mr. Weiss confessed Kim Davis - the Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk currently in jail for contempt of court for failing to follow the law and issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples - was his hero for "fighting for religious freedom."

Republican presidential candidate and former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee briefly escaped from a mental institution to support Weiss when he learned the City of Providence was making preparations to fire the clerk.
