I noticed that Amy ‘Covid’ Barrett was trending on Twitter the other day. But I didn’t have time to find out why. Then I saw the story about the Covid vote. More on that in a minute.
As we all know, Leftist elites believe they should determine winners and losers. Thus, in California for example, Gestapo Governor Gavin Newsom allows strip clubs to remain open; however, churches must close.
Things aren’t much different with New York’s Leftist ruler, Andrew Cuomo. Curfews, holiday gathering restrictions. By the way, both Newsom and Cuomo have been spotted violating their own rules and so have family members.
Remember Gavin Newson’s aunt, namely Nancy Pelosi, caught on camera getting her hair done? Oh, and caught not wearing a mask. Cuomo’s brother Chris was spotted at his new multi-million dollar homesite not wearing a mask.
But as we learned in the Era of Obama, the laws don’t apply to the elites. But things are changing.
America finally got a victory for the religious right, as the Supreme Court recently ruled against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The court declared that Cuomo illegally targeted churches in his COVID lockdown order. And Justice Amy Coney Barrett cast the deciding vote.
In the 5-4 decision, the Court ruled Cuomo’s edict violated First Amendment rights (via NYT):
The Supreme Court late Wednesday night barred restrictions on religious services in New York that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo had imposed to combat the coronavirus.
The vote was 5 to 4, with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and the court’s three liberal members in dissent. The order was the first in which the court’s newest member, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, played a decisive role.
In an unsigned opinion, the majority said Mr. Cuomo’s restrictions violated the First Amendment’s protection of the free exercise of religion.
In a concurring opinion, Justice Neil M. Gorsuch said Mr. Cuomo had treated secular activities more favorably than religious ones.
“It is time — past time — to make plain that, while the pandemic poses many grave challenges, there is no world in which the Constitution tolerates color-coded executive edicts that reopen liquor stores and bike shops but shutter churches, synagogues, and mosques,” Justice Gorsuch wrote.
The court’s order addressed two applications: one filed by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, the other by two synagogues, an Orthodox Jewish organization and two individuals. The applications both said Mr. Cuomo’s restrictions violated constitutional protections for the free exercise of religion, and the one from the synagogues added that Mr. Cuomo had “singled out a particular religion for blame and retribution for an uptick in a societywide pandemic.”
Had President Trump capitulated to the Leftist scum, this would have been a tied vote, and thus a “no contest”.
According to Town Hall,
“…the Supreme Court had previously either upheld COVID restrictions on religious services or shot down the legal challenges brought before them. In those cases, Chief Justice John Roberts, who arguably is now the face of the Court’s liberal wing, was the one who delivered the death blow. In the Nevada case, SCOTUS upheld limitations concerning church attendance but was fine with movie theaters and casinos operating with a more cavalier capacity policy. It made no sense, and Justice Neil Gorsuch torched the entire premise in his dissent in just a single paragraph.”
With the addition of Coney Barrett to the court, Justice RINO Roberts no longer holds Conservatives hostage. We truly have a 5-4 SCOTUS. 5 justices are pragmatists, therefore sane. Three of the justices are clear Leftists ideologues. Finally, Roberts is just compromised.
