Last Friday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge granted Los Angeles church-goers the right to worship inside the Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, despite Governor Gavin Newsom’s draconian restrictions.
“Superior Court Judge Gregory Alarcon ruled that [Los Angeles County-based] Grace Community Church can continue to hold indoor services as long as worshippers wear face coverings and practice social distancing,” writes the Blaze.
For many conservatives, this was hailed as a major victory, striking a legal blow at the heart of the radical, anti-religion left.
Well, I guess, in one sense, it kind-of is, if one only considers the case superficially. But looking at this situation through a constitutionalist lense – even a Common one (get it?), it’s only a partial win.
