A Small Victory Over Tyranny

A huge win against the tyrants by striking down Cuomo’s cap on attendance at religious services. Thanks to Catholics and Jews. I urge you to scan the dissenting opinions of the Leftists on the Court, for they are predictable and amateurish (especially Sotomayor). Here is a quote I pulled from Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch’s concurring statement on the SCOTUS decision.

“At least according to the Governor, it may be unsafe to go to church, but it is always fine to pick up another bottle of wine….Who knew public health would so perfectly align with secular convenience?

People may gather inside for extended periods in bus stations and airports, in laundromats and banks, in hardware stores and liquor shops. No apparent reason exists why people may not gather, subject to identical restrictions, in churches or synagogues, especially when religious institutions have made plain that they stand ready, able, and willing to follow all the safety precautions required of “essential” businesses and perhaps more besides. The only explanation for treating religious places differently seems to be a judgment that what happens there just isn’t as “essential” as what happens in secular spaces. Indeed, the Governor is remarkably frank about this: In his judgment laundry and liquor, travel and tools, are all “essential” while traditional religious exercises are not. That is exactly the kind of discrimination the First Amendment forbids.”
