House Democrats are furious that the Supreme Court voted to protect religious freedom

Democrats control the White House and both chambers of Congress, but they were quickly reminded this month who holds the power in the U.S. Supreme Court and a recent decision favoring religious freedom has a number of Democrats hopping mad.

According to the Washington Examiner, on the heels of a high court decision earlier this month that ruled in favor of California churches being allowed to open at 25 percent capacity, a number of House Democrats, like Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), criticized the ruling, suggesting that it “created a mess” in the state.

At the crux of the issue is that the ruling came about through the Supreme Court’s “shadow docket,” which are cases that are heard and ruled on which result in short, sometimes unsigned orders that provide no explanation as to why the justices made the ruling.

The House Judiciary Committee recently held a hearing on the “shadow docket” process and criticized the high court for using it on subjects like religious freedom, which they claim deserve a greater explanation, especially because of the effect that the most recent decision on church openings has on the state’s COVID-19 restriction protocols.

“The order provides no consensus on what animated the court’s conclusion,” said Washington, D.C. Solicitor General Loren AliKhan, who sided with Democrats on the matter at the recent hearing. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) also suggested that the ruling on this particular case deserved more explanation.

The SCOTUS ruling on church re-openings during the COVID-19 pandemic came in response to cases filed by South Bay United Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista and Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena, as the Washington Examiner reported earlier.

This isn’t the first time during the pandemic that the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of churches reopening with limited capacity. Ever since Justice Amy Coney Barrett was appointed to the court by former President Donald Trump, churches in multiple states, including New Jersey, New York and California, have had luck in obtaining favorable rulings.

Many in the church community have argued that as long as Walmarts, grocery stores and strip clubs remain open, there’s no valid reason why Americans would not be allowed to practice their faith, in-person, at their local church.

Biden has proven that he has a serious problem, and needs to take a mental test, as he is showing that he does not have the mental acuity necessary to do the job, and he is doing more damage to the country than Obama did.

And you are certainly known for your brilliance, particularly, falling in line with the UnAmerican Digest so far out on the right wing Trump autocrat team which came within inches of destroying our democracy on Jan. 6.

Maybe, just maybe (possibly too late), the Supreme Court and Chief JUDAS John Roberts has had an epiphany – Biden, Schumer and Pelosi will be castrating SCOTUS NEXT!

“When you make love to a gorilla, you don’t stop when you want to!” Chief JUDAS has been making love to the Democrat Machine gorilla and thought he and SCOTUS would be IMMUNE from their OBSESSION for CONTROL and POWER. However, Democrats understand, SCOTUS is the only entity they don’t completely control – and without CONTROL of SCOTUS, the potential for SCOTUS to turn on them is a threat.

Had Chief JUDAS been smarter, he would have anticipated this, when he had the opportunity to FIX the WIDESPREAD DEMOCRAT VOTE FRAUD that gave Democrats control of the Legislative and Executive Branches, leaving only SCOTUS outside their complete control. Just more proof, there is no cure for STUPID!

Be sure to watch the 2 hour “ABSOLUTE PROOF” documentary on the election fraud!!! I have limited funds and no money available to contribute. However: HOW CAN MITCH MCCONNELL, MITT ROMNEY, THE SUPREME COURT (and others) BE SO BLIND AND IGNORANT?IT IS “INTUITIVELY CLEAR TO EVEN THE MOST CASUAL OBSERVER” THAT THIS ELECTION WAS FRAUGHT WITH FRAUD TO OVERRIDE THE LEGITIMATE VOTES!!!!FURTHERMORE; THE SENATE AND HOUSE WERE DERELICT IN THEIR DUTY TO VERIFY ALL LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE COUNTED, AND ENSURE THAT ALL NON-LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE REJECTED!!!!I fully support President Donald J Trump, recognize he truly loves this country and stands firmly for what is right, for the Constitution and for We The People of The United States of America. There is a very huge silent majority who recognizes that We as well as He are under attack by the radical left. Democ’rats. (Which is what the Democrat Party needs to be renamed as that name accurately reflects their Attitude and Hate for all that is good for our nation.) Democ’rats should never be referred to as being the Democratic Party, because there isn’t anything in their platform or conduct that indicates they adhere to Democratic principles. Anyone who refers to them as being Democratic or being The Democratic Party is either ignorant or lacks even an ounce of intelligence. Just make sure as Republican members/candidates for the Senate and House you will fully support and stand with President Donald J Trump, truly love this country and stand firmly for what is right for the Constitution and We The People of The United States of America. If you do, I am confident the huge silent majority will elect/retain you to represent them. DO IT!

Ray that couldn’t have been said better by anyone , I totally agree!!!!! The problem is that there are so many CORRUPT PEOPLE in our Government that no one is willing to tackle the problems that we’re having for fear of being found out about the Crap they’re involved in!!! I have a good congressman that I can call but the Senators that we have in New Jersey are as Corrupt as our President and his son!!!!! Doing a lot of PRAYING!

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) says that the SCOTUS ruling created a mess in the state. He had better look more closely at the mess, it is not and was not SCOTUS that created the mess in California, it was people like Lofgren, Pelosi, Harris, Gavin Newsom and a host of other DIMS that have destroyed the once beautiful, prosperous state of California. People and companies have been bailing out of CA for years and it sure wasn’t due to a recent ruling by SCOTUS.

California’s mess has been self created by the Governor, Liberal leaderships in various counties, aided by Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, and otherswho do not serve their constituents, but their own interests.

Hank Johnson is not a good person to make decisions when he is rep. that thought if too many troops were sent to Guam that the island nation would flip over and drown everyone. And he’s a lawyer.

With all of the evidence coming out, you would think that all of them will be put away for TREASON!!! All of the proof is pretty hard to ignore. We all need to stand up and say “that is enough”.

Congress and state government has no right to say or do anything concerning the freedom of religion. Church’s have the right to be open. It’s time the Democrats keep there mouths SHUT.

The Democrat’s want a communist country for their way of life . This will cause problems but they do not seem to care how many they kill.

Our forefathers intended legislators to be citizen legislators, not professional legislators. Notice that congress had no qualms about placing term limits on the presidency, but don’t ever talk about term limits for congress. There are very few legislators today who will even discuss it. And that is what is causing all these problems. Legislators with 20, 30, 40 years in office are better at representing lobbyists than their own constituents. But then there are no extra benefits in just representing those who voted them into office. Term limits would be at least a partial solution to this problem. How many believe that will ever happen?

Put the “Term Limits” on the ballot. Let the people vote! The same should be done with the “pay” (salary)—let the people vote on it.
