    No World in Which the Constitution Tolerates Opening Liquor Stores But Closing Churches

    Gorsuch: There’s No World in Which the Constitution Tolerates Opening Liquor Stores But Closing Churches
    Todd Starnes
    Nov 26, 2020


    The Supreme Court delivered a massive win for religious liberty and a scathing rebuke of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo after he ordered Christians and Jews to shutter their houses of worship during the global pandemic.


    The 5-4 ruling was in response to a request for an emergency injunction by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and the Agudath Israel of America, an Orthodox Jewish group, against restrictions limiting services to ten people in some areas and 25 people in others.

    Justice Amy Barrett, the Court’s newest member, joined the conservative majority. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the Court’s liberals.


    “It is time — past time — to make plain that, while the pandemic poses many grave challenges, 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,” Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote.


    Make no mistake about what would have happened had Hillary Clinton been elected president in 2016. The Supreme Court would’ve overwhelmingly ruled that governors have the right to shut down houses of worship.


    Christians and Jews should be thanking God every day for delivering us from such evil by putting President Trump in the White House.


    He promised to defend religious liberty and he delivered on that promise by revolutionizing the federal court system. Promises made, promises kept.

    First Liberty Institute filed a brief supporting both the Catholic church and the synagogue. Founder Kelly Shackelford praised the ruling.


    “The Supreme Court has recognized rightly that our constitutionally protected rights are not suspended during a pandemic,” Shackelford said. “Religious freedom is our First Freedom and one of our most fundamental rights as Americans. Treating it like a second class right was offensive, foolish and unconstitutional. Government officials may not abuse their emergency powers to discriminate against Americans of faith.”


    Gorsuch said Cuomo had discriminated against people of faith.


    “In his judgment laundry and liquor, travel and tools are all ‘essential’ while traditional religious exercises are not,” Gorsuch wrote in his concurring opinion. “That is exactly the kind of discrimination the First Amendment forbids.”


    In other words, Gorsuch wrote, “according to the governor, it may be unsafe to go to church, but it is always fine to pick up another bottle of wine, shop for a new bike, or spend the afternoon exploring your distal points and meridians.”


    “Who knew public health would so perfectly align with secular convenience,” the justice wrote.

    this is a victory for ALL Americans

    It’s truly disgusting to me how anyone in such a poison of power can disregard the founding documents of our country for such a communist mindset as to remove God from our country and replace it with secular Government rule.

    We need a total reform of scotus , this should have been an open and shut case with a 9-0 vote.

    Under the separation of church and state does the state aka NY CA have the right to impose restrictions on churches? Or they separate from that. 1st amendment right freedom to assemble, worship has been taken away from churches but you can riot, loot and pillage all you want. The world is upside-down in many things. Everything now on private property should be deemed a peaceful protest.

    What is up with John Roberts? Is he basically an activist liberal judge now?

    Pretty sure he is compromised. This vote has exposed his true intentions. Anti Constitutionalist.

    Im not sure if it’s true but I remember reading judge Robert’s name was on Epstein’s flight logs. I’m not sure if that even makes difference in the way he rules, perhaps he was able to infiltrate scotus as a conservative or his heart turned cold towards God after his appointment

    All of this. How this even gets a 5-4 vote is appalling. It should be even more disturbing that our constitution is literally being upheld by a SINGLE vote! And this is not incompetence or poorly interpreting our constitutional rights. This is a blatant attempt to subvert it.

    Y’all need to sit elbow to elbow and pass the chalice and take a sip. That’s how we get to herd immunity, by thinning it.

    I lolled so hard at that one. If communion made you feel queasy, I bet having to see the priest after boys' choir practice was really bad.

    I usually don't take cheap shots, but that was too irresistible. Sorry, man.

    I’ll do you one better...I was an alter boy 😳
    Our pastor was actually a decent guy, he coached boxing a couple days a week and drank like a fish. Tough old Irishman.
