 If you are an American, you should be very worried about the latest decision – this latest precedent, decreed by the nine person oligarchy that currently rules our nation.
Whether you’re religious or not, this had better chill you to the bone.
And it proves, without a shadow of a doubt, what we “paranoid” conservatives have been trumpeting for years. That our country has indeed passed into a post-constitutional period in our history. Like everything else, that document, the Constitution, now serves but one purpose – that of a political tool, to twist and spin and wield against your enemies.

The First Amendment could not be any more clear regarding religious liberty.

Roberts joins liberal justices to rule against church challenging harsh COVID restrictions

The court’s conservative justices vehemently disagreed with their colleagues

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the high court’s liberal justices to rule against a California church seeking to overturn Gov. Gavin Newsom’s limits on church attendance.

The significant development received little attention due to ongoing protests and riots in cities across the U.S., sparked by the tragic death of George Floyd.

In a 5-4 decision, which was handed down just before midnight, Roberts and the Supreme Court’s liberal justices ruled against South Bay United Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista.

The ruling upholds Newsom’s restrictions, which limit churches to 25% capacity or 100 maximum total attendees during a church service. South Bay United, which typically sees between 200-300 worshipers during its services, challenged the order by arguing that it violated their First Amendment rights.

Roberts, however, disagreed.

The chief justice wrote in a brief opinion that Newsom’s restrictions “appear consistent with the free exercise clause of the First Amendment.”
