SCOTUS grants injunction against Gov. Cuomo’s restrictions on religious gatherings

The timeliness of President Trump’s appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court has never been so apparent as in the court’s most recent ruling.

On Wednesday evening, the high court granted an emergency injunction request from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and the Agudath Israel of America against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s (D) limitations on religious gatherings in the state — a major win for religious freedom in the US.

The court decided in a 5-4 decision mostly along party lines — with supposed “moderate” Chief Justice John Roberts breaking siding with the liberal justices — that Cuomo can no longer implement attendance caps of religious services in the state.

Democrat governors across the nation have targeted religious institutions and services in their orders, bringing up a contentious argument about the limits of religious freedom in the nation.

“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 judges in the majority wrote.

“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,” the conservative justices continued.

Though the court’s ruling is a win for the protection of religious freedom in the nation, it is somewhat disturbing to note that only one vote stood in the way of the nation’s highest court setting a precedent that could change the interpretation of the first amendment permanently.

Cuomo responded to the injunction by calling the ruling “irrelevant” and “moot” because the institutions that requested the ruling in the first place are no longer designated as high-risk, and any restrictions would no longer apply to them regardless of the ruling.

      1. Roberts sold out to the democrat party while Obama was in office. Obama got something on Roberts or family and ever since he has ruled along democrat party lines without exception! It is time to remove him from the Court.

          1. Agree!!!!! We’ve really been disappointed at the “turn face” of the Bushes!!!! Clinton’s are another ballgame — he might not have morals, but she’s creepy, sneaky, crooked and trash.

        1. Remember that Roberts and wife adopted 2 Irish children through Brazil and adopting Irish children direct from Ireland is illegal.
          So it is not Obama but the entire liberal elite that are hold his feet in the freezer.

        2. Roberts seems to me, like a Fem, and a pansy but we all know that he is a turn coat and a back stabber, too. The word on the street is that he “adopted” a baby girl from some South American country but didn’t have all the legal adoption papers in order, and obama [another fake bum.. educated in the Eastern world and a closet Muslim interloper, prob looked for that loop hole and used it to threaten Roberts. I remember reading about that a few years ago.
          I am age 71, and a Disabled Vietnam Vet: 68-70, and I know that I won’t live too much longer, so I am going to use my 1st Amendment Freedom of Speech while I can. Jesus is Lord.

      2. And if Biden appoints Obozard to the SC, law and oder not to mention the consititution will be a thing of the past.

      3. evidently, 4 people cannot read the first amendment. A document they had to take an oath to We the People to protect. They need to be arrested for breach of contract and fraud, if they received a paycheck.

    1. Cuomo NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE! HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE DEATHS IN THE SENIOR HOMES IN THE BEGINNING OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC!! HE SENT ALOT OF CORONAVIRUS INFECTED PEOPLE TO THE SENIOR HOMES KNOWINGLY (MAYBE INTENTIONALLY)!!!

    2. We all must remember that it was in 1956 at the the End of the Korean War and all other crisis that the Great General Dwight D. Eisenhower prayed then sad: “…. In God we TRUST!”

      Let us CONTINUE to TRUST GOD~ His Truth, His Love, and all of His Goodness! They are our roots: the Foundation of America! Never try to found greatness within substancelss souls! Stick TO our ROOT: GOD! CUNTRY! FAMILY! Be gratiful and happy! United, we stand~ Truthful and FIRM! During this our: THANKSGIVING SEASON!

  1. That ignorant SOB,is a complete disgrace to this nation, and to humanity! To even try and make a decision like that for over 7 billion people thats walking the face of the Earth! He ought to be shot on sight!

  2. OHHH How the mighty DEMOCRAT GOVERNOR CHANGES HIS TUNE WHEN SCOTUS STEPS IN AND TELLS HIM HE CAN’T. HE SAYS CHURCHES ARE NOT DESIGNATED AS HIGH RISK WHEN BEFORE THE SCOTUS SAID NO ! THE CHURCHES WERE HIGH RISK. SEEMS LIKE THE DEMOCRAT POS GOV. CAN’T DECIDE !

      1. Why is it that only liberals qualify for an Emmy or Nobel Peace Prize and never do anything to earn it—or they “make up”accomplishments in order to feel it is deserved

  3. Donald J. Trump really won the Presidential election. All of the Democrats commited Fraud and crimes totally against the American people. All of the Democrats, the Silicon Valley Elites and George Sorros and company all need to face life in prison. Hillary Clinton, and Barrack Obama committed Treason and should be issued a one way ticket to prison for the rest of their lives.

      1. You must be out of touch with common sense. Obama was the most divisive and Trump almost had it healed.
        Look at your 401K and if the Senate does not stay in Republican control watch it plummet.

  4. I would care less if I picked up the morning paper and read that Gov. Cuomo caught the coronavirus with a terminal result…

  5. I need to send this article to the Neo Nazi we have as governor in New Mexico. Nothing would make me happier than to see her knocked down off her high horse. I guess one thing would make me happier but I don’t know if it will happen.

  6. Gov. Cuomo is a complete fraud just like all the demonrats, they are frauds and it is time they are held accountable for their actions. Cuomo murdered several american seniors with his poor governing yet the media has cut him slack for his dereliction of duty. Like all the other incompetent demonrats in office that need to be held accountable but somehow always escape it. It’s just sickening.

    1. He “murdered several american seniors”? If the figures are correct he MURDERED HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN SENIORS and should be under lock and key for the rest of his miserable life.

    2. Oh! But wait! Didn’t Coma blame POTUS for all those deaths? And don’t All of the demolition rats also blame him?
      Not to mention dividing the country?
      And All that systemic racism they find hiding around every corner, under every bed, and even in boulders on campuses?
      Never mind All the other mythical events that occured all through this last 4 years?

  7. Cuomo IS an idiot. But, he’s even a bigger idiot to attempt to minimize the impact of this court ruling on the States’ Governance.
    This is the beginning of the States’ Dictators losing some of their power, and they cannot be happy about that.
    COVID is a Political Club being used to grab power by the Democratic Communist Party.
    COVID is an invisible bug created in a U.S. Lab by Fauci and Baris who illegally and unlawfully attempted to get it Pantented. When their failed illegal attempts to get it pantented failed, and they brought unfavorable notoriety to themselves, they moved the research offshore to Wuhan, Red China to bring it to life there.
    More than 99% of the people who allegedly have, or had COVID; and we have known for sometime that the number of cases is highly overinflated, due in part to the failure of many tests to accurately identify a positive result; anyway more than 99% of the cases identified survived/survive the virus.
    This doesn’t even account for the 40% of the Nation’s population who likely have/had the virus and don’t even know they have/had it.
    COVID is overlapped by the flu season, which is currently running for the second time since COVID surfaced, and it’s believed that many of the diagnoses for COVID are actually diagnoses for the flu.
    The Draconian, Dictatorial Restrictions imposed by Governors are absolutely uncalled for and a blatant violation of Our Constitutional Rights. These Governors should be held Criminally Liable for their unsupported actions. Not only did they take NO ACTION against the rioters who violated the COVID Restrictions; really the least of anybodies concerns; but they never even condemned the rioters’ violent criminal acts committed while they violated the COVID Restrictions. In Fact: the Governors facilitated the criminal acts, and aided and abetted the rioters in the commission of these acts by ordering police to “stand down”, and by not calling in the National Guard.
    Are these the people you really want running Our Country ?

  8. Dumb’OS must be held accountable; lies, cheat ect. We the people could have our own re-vote. We must not lower ourselves to their quality. Truth! Not name calling.

  9. 5 to 4, the other 4 need to be REMOVED at once! It should have been 9 to 0 if these JUDGES FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION rather than their DEMOCRATIC PARTY LINE! How could 4 people in their right minds when its a clear violation of the LAW OF THE LAND, I would LIKE TO SEE what the REASON BEHIND THESE 4 IDIOTS ARE!!!!

  10. Most of the States told us not to go out for the Holiday because of CV-19. After all the Mayers, Governors, Senators, jumped on a plane and went to Grandmas house.

  11. President Trump took an oath to protect us from all enemies, foreign or domestic. This fraud from the democrats is a domestic overthrow. We will fall like Venezuela, if we allow this fraud to take place.

  12. We all must remember this TRUTH, that is, the United States of America was founded and formed under the Judea- Christian Principles! “God, Country, Family” “In God we TRUST!” was greatly promoted by Presdient Dwight D. Einsenhower in 1956!

  13. What does it mean to increase friction? I would be really useful if anyone can react to that concern.

Anyway, in my language, there arent much good source like this.
