The SCOTUS just ruled against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s draconian COVID-19 lockdowns. Justice Amy Coney Barrett delivered the decisive vote. Trump’s Supreme Court justice picks are already paying off, preserving freedom for the American people.
SCOTUS rules against tyrant Governor
The newest member of the SCOTUS just voted in a historic ruling which will allow places of worship to remain open at full capacity in the state of New York.
Trump’s latest appointed justice, Amy Coney Barrett, voted in support of the challenge to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions on religious services. The 5-4 ruling blocks the enforcement of the restrictions for the time being.
The court decided there was lack of evidence that the applicants in the case, a Roman Catholic church in Brooklyn and two Jewish synagogues, have contributed to the spread of COVID-19 by holding services. Governor Cuomo was seeking to limit some services to a maximum of 10 people.
“Not only is there no evidence that the applicants have contributed to the spread of COVID–19 but there are many other less restrictive rules that could be adopted to minimize the risk to those attending religious services,” the decision reads. “Among other things, the maximum attendance at a religious service could be tied to the size of the church or synagogue.
Almost all of the 26 Diocese churches immediately affected by the Executive Order can seat at least 500 people, about 14 can accommodate at least 700, and 2 can seat over 1,000. Similarly, Agudath Israel of Kew Garden Hills can seat up to 400.
It is hard to believe that admitting more than 10 people to a 1,000–seat church or 400–seat synagogue would create a more serious health risk than the many other activities that the State allows.”
King Cuomo stripped of his powers
Part of the SCOTUS decision reads, “Members of this Court are not public health experts, and we should respect the judgment of those with special expertise and responsibility in this area, but even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten.
The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty. Before allowing this to occur, we have a duty to conduct a serious examination of the need for such a drastic measure.”
Corrupt Democrats are cheating their way into office all over the country so it’s more important than ever that we have good Constitutional justices on the Supreme Court.
Without their ruling, tyrannical Democrats would run wild with their power grabs and there would be no end in sight. The decision states, “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.”
