An Assault On Religious Freedom

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 28, 2020

         THE SUPREME COURT HAS REJECTED THE REQUEST OF A NEVADA CHURCH TO BLOCK AN EDICT FROM GOVERNOR STEVE SISOLAK CAPPING ATTENDANCE AT RELIGIOUS SERVICES AT 50. THE GOVERNOR CITES THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC IN HIS TWISTED LOGIC. THE VOTE WAS 5-4. ONCE AGAIN THE CHIEF JUSTICE, JOHN ROBERTS, JOINED THE COURT’S LIBERAL WING.

         THE GOVERNOR’S UNILATERAL RULE ALLOWS CASINOS, RESTAURANTS, BARS, THEME PARKS AND GYMS TO OPERATE AT 50 PERCENT CAPACITY. MULTIPLEXES MAY ALSO CONTINUE TO ACCOMMODATE MOVIEGOERS WITH NO LIMITS.

         THIS IS AN ASSULT ON THE CONSTITUTION, FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND FREEDOM OF ASSEMBLY. WE ARE RAPIDLY BECOME A NATION OF SHEEP, FOLLOWING WHATEVER A SMALL NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND POLITICIANS TELL US TO DO.

         THE CHIEF JUSTICE INCREASINGLY DISAPPOINTS. WHILE HE HAS BEEN GOOD ON SOME ISSUES – SCHOOL CHOICE IS ONE RECENT EXAMPLE – HE HAS BEEN TERRIBLE ON OBAMACARE AND THIS CASE.

         PEOPLE OF FAITH ARE BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BY THE SECULAR STATE. WHAT SHOULD WE DO ABOUT IT? I’M CAL THOMAS.
