    U.S. Justice Alito says pandemic has led to 'unimaginable' curbs on liberty

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito said the COVID-19 pandemic had led to “previously unimaginable” curbs on individual liberty, singling out restrictions on religious events.

    The justice, who is seen as a conservative, told a meeting of the Federalist Society late on Thursday he was not underplaying the severity of the crisis or criticizing any officials for their response.

    But he added: “We have never before seen restrictions as severe, extensive and prolonged as those experienced for most of 2020.”
    "The COVID crisis has served as sort of a constitutional stress test," he said during his address over a video link for the conservative organization's annual conference bit.ly/2H21TvK.

    Alito, who was appointed by Republican President George W. Bush in 2006, referred to restrictions on gatherings that had affected religious events.

    “Think of worship services! Churches closed on Easter Sunday, synagogues closed for Passover in Yom Kippur”, he said.

    “It pains me to say this,” Alito added, “but in certain quarters, religious liberty is fast becoming a disfavored right.”

    The justice said freedom of speech was also under threat.

    “Although that freedom is falling out of favor in some circles, we need to do whatever we can to prevent it from becoming a second-tier constitutional right,” he said.

    Alito’s remarks on free speech echoed his words from 2016 at the same event when he referred to college campus culture that conservatives say stifles free speech to avoid offending political sensibilities on matters such as gender, race and religion.

    Social norms had created a list of things that was now unacceptable for students, professors and employees to say, he added on Thursday.

    “You can’t say that marriage is a union between one man and one woman”, he added. “Until very recently that’s what a vast majority of Americans thought. Now its considered bigotry.”

    This is very important especially now since the new president is about to try and lock us down again and for who knows how long . I am really hoping that out governors will stand up for their people and not bow down . I do feel sorry for my family who have not moved out of California already.

    Yes and the sixth amendment, I know in my area they shut down the court system and now since it is opened back up and they are having limited court to stick with the covid restrictions.

    Yeah, that too. When the first one goes, the rest go. Kind of why it's a big deal. It's amazing how easily they've managed to get by with all of this. "Minimal reaction from the crowd." The ACLU has been dead silent in all of this.

    I can't wait for Biden to deal with this heat. Trump left him a vaccine and I can promise you it will still be a shit fest.
    Wait until the riot's start again. This is going to be fun to watch.

    We keep hearing about the rising numbers of COVID cases, who the hell is dying, old people? If so give all seniors a stimulus check and tell them to stay the fuck home.

    Biden doesn’t know what he wants to do he’s senile and forgets where he is and office he is running for. It’s called dementia.
