The attack on religious freedom in the name of coronavirus control is appalling, but there’s hope since President Donald Trump’s new U.S. Supreme Court appointee may get her say.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court for emergency relief in response to the onerous and unfair COVID-19 restrictions Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has yet again imposed on churches, Fox News reported.
The U.S. Supreme Court previously struck down a case objecting to in-person restrictions on worship services in a 5-4 decision last May, CNN reported.
It was Chief Justice John Roberts who defected, joining liberal justices including the now-deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in upholding the restrictions.
Now conservatives are hopeful Constitutional originalist Amy Coney Barrett will rightly decide in favor of First Amendment religious liberty, shredding Cuomo’s discriminatory policies and smacking down his anti-religious attorneys if the case is heard.
