Small California church takes fight against Newsom to U.S. Supreme Court
“Under the governor’s edicts, Bishop Hodges can bump shoulders with congregants at a shopping mall, but he can’t minister to them in a safe and sanitary church sanctuary…That is blatant religious discrimination, and we hope the Supreme Court agrees.”
The Rancho Santa Fe-based Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund filed an emergency motion Saturday morning with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of South Bay United Pentecostal Church seeking an injunction to block Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order to temporarily stop in-person church services.
HERE. WE. GO! The fight to reopen the churches in California, along with the rest of the state, is just getting started. We were really hoping that Governor Gavin Newsom would listen to reason, respect the rule of law, and protect the Rights guaranteed in the Constitution…What fools we were for expecting him to do his job. Instead, Newsom ran to the rigged 9th Circuit Court to uphold his tyrannical actions that the state can suspend the U.S. Constitution due to the coronavirus crisis.
Crying to the rigged 9th Circuit to uphold clearly unconstitutional behavior is a trend among Democrat leaders when they want to go against the wishes of the people.
Gavin Newsom’s extreme lockdowns lead to the church asking for an emergency injunction to immediately resume in-person church gatherings. The motion was filed after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 to deny the Chula Vista church’s request for an emergency injunction late Friday night.
“Gov. Newsom would apparently rather litigate this case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court than allow a single Californian to go to church,” -Charles LiMandri, chief litigation counsel for the Defense Fund
The churches have a solid legal standing and they have garnered vocal support from both the U.S. Department of Justice and the President of the United States himself. They have both said that California churches must be allowed to reopen immediately.
San Diego County, an area with a population of over 3.3 million people, has only seen about 250 covid related deaths, and even fewer “pure covid” deaths. A “pure covid” death is when the patient ONLY suffered from covid and no other potential complications. The vast majority of covid deaths are coming from people that already had severe underlying health problems.
It makes zero sense that you can go into a Walmart or Target with hundreds of other strangers, but you can’t go sit in a small church…It really seems like Gavin Newsom, the Attorney General Xavier Becerra, and the Democrats on the 9th Circuit are taking their anger against Trump out on these small churches. All they are doing is creating more Trump supporters.
While we desperately need a return to the old normal, the longer the Dems try to force this “new” normal on people just ends up turning more against them. Dems own businesses too. Dems go to church too. Dems enjoy freedom too. Many of them can see they are being hurt by their Glorious Socialist Leader’s decision to shutdown the California economy over a virus with a 99.9999% survival rate.
At the end of the day, the shutdown was all about hampering the Trump economy because this was literally the only way they were ever going to create a recession during the Trump Era. I’ve explained on my Twitter account how President Trump has broken the old cycle of “Boom-to-Bust” by giving the economy room to grow when possible and room to shrink when necessary.
Also President Trump bringing oil production back to the United States was yuge as that ended our dependence on foreign oil, thus ending the ability for the Deep State to cause an incident in the Middle-East to draw Trump into a war. This is mostly how Trump has avoided starting new conflicts.
So when you look at the whole picture, the shutdown and subsequent panic over the virus was the ONLY way they were going to stop the Trump economy from reaching its full potential. Even then, they have only succeeded at delaying it, once the shutdown ends (and it will) the economy will bounce back like never before!
This is why Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, Inslee, and other Dems are working very hard to keep this pandemic going as long as possible. They want to keep the economy weak and secure mail-in voting at the same time, they believe that is their path to victory and perhaps they are right…It really does seem like the only way Dems can win at this point is by artificially hurting the Trump economy and pushing a potentially rigged mail-in voting scheme…
As far as I can see, that is the real reason behind keeping these lockdowns from being lifted. They don’t want people to go back to church, or work just yet, not until Top Dems have had a chance to rig the election. This is why it is so important for us to fight these lockdowns. Whether you are even religious or not, if you believe in the U.S. Constitution you know that our Founders guaranteed the unimpeded right to worship.
I stand with the churches of California against the corrupt and out of control Gavin Newsom. I am so glad to see they are fighting against his very tyrannical behavior trying to deprive us of our 1st Amendment Rights. Gruesome Newsom is downright unamerican for what he is attempting to do!
The Supreme Court of the United States will slap him down, I am sure of it. Let us just hope it’s an expedited process and these churches are allowed to open back up without these crushing restrictions very soon.
