US Supreme Court slams Gov Newsom, hands major victory to at-home religious worshipers in California

Former President Donald Trump’s opportunity to add three conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices to the bench is starting to pay dividends, as those who fight for and value religious freedom in California were just handed a massive victory, thanks to a conservative majority ruling.

According to Breitbart, on Friday, in a 5-4 ruling, the high court ordered the state of California to lift any COVID-19 restrictions that state officials and Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) placed on in-home religious gatherings and prayers meetings.

At the crux of the legal battle was the efforts by a pastor and a group of California residents who chose to conduct at-home church gatherings in order to practice their faith while churches across the state were caught in overly strict COVID-19 lockdown protocols.

Originally, the historically liberal U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled against residents who chose to gather in each others’ homes to worship. Adding to the frustration was the fact that Newsom ignored earlier Supreme Court rulings that ordered the state to lift what it determined were unfair restrictions on religious worship.

The petitioners involved in taking the matter to the Supreme Court this time asked the high court to not only block Newsom’s authority on the matter while the case was in appeal, but they also asked for an injunction to reverse the previous rulings handed down by lower courts, which is exactly what they won on Friday.

Five conservative SCOTUS justices, including all of Trump’s appointments to the high court, ruled in favor of the worshipers. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the three liberal SCOTUS justices.

“California treats some comparable secular activities more favorably than at-home religious exercise, permitting hair salons, retail stores, personal care services, movie theaters, private suites at sporting events and concerts, and indoor restaurants to bring together more than three households at a time,” the SCOTUS ruling said, in part. “The State cannot assume the worst when people go to worship but assume the best when people go to work.”

The ruling was not authored by a specific justice on the high court, making it a per curiam opinion.

Only time will tell, but hopefully, religious Americans in other blue states where the harshest of lockdowns are experienced will use this precedent to fight for their religious liberty as well.

  4. Playlines with more than one line on top of that camp will range from 1 to a thousand digits. There will be a line of reels to that player from 5 reels and 3 rows in which the winning pattern will be a win in the form of a set of symbols that are available from 3 to 5 and the chance of getting. That will multiply the prize again and again, up to 10 times the bet you have played that has it all. Of course, a single line can make you the most rich as well, but you need to be very patient so that you don’t get in the heat of deciding to spin the wheel.

  9. John Roberts must be in it for the money!!No morals/self ego/Commie?—China forks out money just like dem’s..disgraceful–I hope the rumor is true: The commies are about to be extinguished–Our country needs belief in America as it was founded—–discard dem’s in way that they just might return to democracy and admit they are COMMUNISTS!!!

  10. What part of the First Amendment do the four liberal justices Kagen, Sotomayor, Alito and Breyer not understand? These people are supposedly Constitutional Scholars. Sadly they have turned out to be nothing more than a bunch of Communist political hacks that constantly rule not to protect our rights or the rights of the unborn for that matter. Shameful!!

  12. ❤💥👍CHRISTrumpOwens and all his US TRUMPlican Lawmakers successfully US 2022/2024 Reelected Landslide
    Amen & Amen👍💥❤

  13. Both Bush’s were/are ELITIST RINOS. Bush2 appointed Roberts who is a joke with no backbone. I am beginning to believe that he has something to hide. Bush1 started early with China and of course the oil money in the mideast. I was really sold a bill of goods by them.

  14. Roberts is a grinning snake liberal, and a Deep- State sympathizer, low life, mud sucking, groupie.

  15. Truly, it IS ABOUT TIME! It’s a small win but at least it IS a win for the conservative religious. Now, that you’ve braved it enough to come out of your shells, get busy and support the fraudulent voter mess! We’d never be in this Biden/Harris mess if you’d done something about this sooner when you needed to do so! Look at the mess America is in because you failed to act! This is on you as well as Biden/Harris administration and all the liars, thieves, frauds on the left! Why were you so scared to act? What the hell are you afraid of? You’re the highest court in America and what you do or NOT do REFLECTS ON YOU AND YOU FAILED TO DO THE RIGHT THING…FIX IT! WE AMERICANS WANT LEGAL VOTES AND BIDEN IMPEACHED ALONG WITH HARRIS, PELOSI AND PUT THE RIGHTFUL PRESIDENT BACK IN OFFICE WHERE HE BELONGS: PRESIDENT TRUMP – MAGA!!!!!!!

  16. Justice John Roberts is a low life traitor. Obviously, not a Christian. He always takes the side of the liberal no count Justices.

    I don’t know exactly who appointed this person–but is is a traitor to the USA.

  17. God bless all of you! Thank you for protecting our religious freedom.
    Please don’t let us down on the 2nd Amendment. You’ve all seen what happened when the Democrats defunded the police; if Biden is allowed to disarm the law abiding citizens, there will be crime like no one has ever seen. The only thing that keeps criminals out of our homes, is the fear of being shot. Take that away, and home invasions will be a free for all; innocent, law abiding people will be attacked, robbed, raped, and slaughtered in their own homes. There will be no one to save us.
    This is from a government study; please don’t let us down, we need our guns more than ever to survive.
    Wright and Rossi interviewed felons and reported that:
    81% of interviewees agreed that a “smart criminal” will try to determine if a potential victim is armed.
    74% indicated that burglars avoided occupied dwellings, because of fear of being shot.
    57% said that most criminals feared armed citizens more than the police.
    40% of the felons said that they had been deterred from committing a particular crime, because they believed that the potential victim was armed.
    57% of the felons who had used guns themselves said that they had encountered potential victims who were armed.
    34% of the criminal respondents said that they had been scared off, shot at, wounded, or captured by an armed citizen.
    Based on this government-funded research by Wright and Rossi, it would appear that armed citizens do have a deterrent effect on crime.

  18. For democraps it is Ok to go to stripper bar but no way go to church…. the democraps have this all wrong… religion is needed. doom and gloom days you have put we the people threw is over….. without god in your life all is lost…

    1. Yep, I’m moving out of CA because of his inactions! CA smells rotten, the demonbrats stink to high-heaven!

  19. Surprise, the TOTALLY DISGRACEFUL Chief JUDAS, AGAIN rides the LIBERAL TRAIN! What an incredible TRAITOR he has become!

    1. The only good thing is that HELL is not half full yet and there will plenty room for them to sit with the Devel for eternety, and that where GOD will send them.

  20. I want to see and hear from the church has all but a bunch of damn hypocrites all they are you selfish Hippocrates care about nobody but yourself all the homeless. Churches could be helping but they’re not that’s why I call it selfish and hypocrites and if I really believed in God they would do help the homeless..

    1. I’m not sure what church you’re talking about a lot in Fresno help out many poor and homeless people…

    2. What are you doing about it? You appear to be a self-righteous- judgmental angry person. Many churches do have a ministry to the homeless..

      1. Most actual Christian churches do serve the homeless. Be careful who you are pointing your finger at!

        There are a lot of so “churches” out there today calling themselves “christian” that are anything but Christian in the previous mold! An excellent example is the new Georgia Senator Warnock. He doesn’t believe in the divinity of Jesus by his own admission! I DO NOT call that Christian! And our Kenyan Prince went to a church in Chicago for over 20 years that was as RACIST as you can get! The minister was another negro “minister” claiming to be christian but was from a Seminary where their professor emeritus James Cone wrote a book saying blacks SHOULD go out and kill whites cause whites mistreated them so badly! Guess whites didn’t treat negroes the best since whites did buy negroes from other negroes selling them to us in the african slave trade! Wonder what kind of “reparations” the former slaves got from the negroes that sold them into slavery?

  21. John roberts is a low life scum bag traitor to the citizens and Almighty God!! Shame on you, you’re almost as bad as an atheist!!

    1. one out of how many? I want them to audit the election of Nov. 3 and reinstate Trump as the DULY ELECTED COMMANDER of this country. Not the idiocy thats in there now. Anow THAT would show me theyve got the stones!

      1. I agree. Once they get Trump. Back in office then I will say they have some back bone. Until then they have none.

        1. Just do ‘The JOB YOU ARE PAID TO DO SCOTUS’!!!!!
          Anytime ‘Presidential complications’ arose. SCOTUS ruled even if I’d it wasn’t the outcome you wanted.!!!!!
          Right now, ‘They have NO SPINE’!!!!

    2. Its nice to know we have some Supreme Court Justices that still feel the people have the right to freedom of religion. Thank you for your services.

    3. But will Californicate obey the ruling?????

      Did you read they IGNORED earlier rulings and did what they want! Sounds like Obama doesn’t it?

    4. No, SCOTUS does not have back bone.
      They just took the case with easy issues. They did not take any case relating to vote counts !
      They’re coward.
