I'll bet next year the church will be required to buy a Permit.
Unless this was an attack on Hunting and Fishing, then they will just keep it shut down!!

So I did a little research:
Only 3 cases of Mad Cow have ever been reported in the US
2 cases of a strain of Mad Cow that infects Deer (CWD) were reported in NY State in 2002 from deer raised at a deer farm!
32,000 wild deer have been tested and "0" NONE, Zip cases have been detected since 2005!
CWD has NEVER been reported to have been transmitted to humans!
The New York State Health Department web site states under the question "Do I always need a food permit?"
Answer 2nd paragraph: "Some events do not require a permit. These include events such as bake sales or covered dish suppers, where people bring a dish to share with each other.(Further more) A religious, faternal or charitable organization that has it's own facility and plans to prepare and serve food at it's facility does not need a premit for an occasional event (once a week or less often)."
By their OWN discription this Church Dinner does not require a permit nor does it fall under the Tyranny of the STATE Health Dept. let alone the Madison County Health Dept. The County Health Depts biggest complant was that the Church advertised the event in a local paper as "open to the public". So it would be fine if notice of the event was spread "underground" by word of mouth, sneaky like they were in Attacking the event!
As Uncle Ted (Nugent) say's "Leave us the Hell Alone"
