Religious Freedom Wins Out Over New York’s Jackboot Shutdowns in Supreme Court, No Thanks To John Roberts

Cuomo and De Blasio have wasted no opportunities taking shots at anyone gathering together for public worship since the rise of the virus. SCOTUS has finally put a curb on that power-grab.

But in a 5-4 decision, don’t expect that John Roberts even pretended to be an originalist in that one. He sided with the OTHER liberal judges.

In a 5-4 vote, the court ruled that the state’s congregational cap violated rights to religious freedom.

In an unsigned order, it said the rules “single[d] out houses of worship for especially harsh treatment.”

This was one of the first consequential rulings since conservative Justice Amy Coney Barrett was appointed.

President Donald Trump appointed her to replace liberal predecessor Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in September.

Justice Barrett voted in the majority, along with other Trump appointees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

…But the Supreme Court’s unsigned majority ruled that “even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten. The restrictions at issue here… strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty.”

The court’s action will not have an immediate impact since the groups that sued are no longer subject to the restrictions they fought against. —BBC

How big a deal is this?

Earlier this year, the court (with Ruth Bader Ginsburg still sitting) ruled AGAINST a church in California in a similar case.

If you were wondering why they are so hellbent on packing the court, this is why.

Suddenly the hard edge of the political left can no longer rely on the rulings of a complicit court to do their heavy lifting of cultural terraforming FOR them.
