US Supreme Court calls corona curbs on gatherings in churches as violation of religious freedom
In this age of science and technology, the American Supreme Court rules that State restrictions on gatherings in churches to prevent transmission of the deadly coronavirus is against religious freedom! This is in sync with the conservative Republican ideology led by President Donald Trump. It may be recalled that there had been large-scale violence against State officials trying to enforce social distancing and mask wearing, forcing them to quit jobs en masse.

WASHINGTON, Dec 4: In a shocking verdict, the conservatives-packed US Supreme Court has blocked coronavirus restrictions on assembly in places of worship like synagogues and churches in New York by a 5 to 4 majority verdict.

President Donald Trump's last-minute rushed appointment to the top court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett spoke against the coronavirus restrictions as being violation of religious freedom guaranteed in the American Constitution.

However, conservative Chief Justice John Roberts dissented, and joined the the three liberals in the case pertaining to New York.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo remarked: "(The judgement is) More illustrative of the Supreme Court than anything else... Why this SC has come up with a different decision now...You have a different court. And that was the statement that the court was making."

The court issued the injunction last Wednesday blocking New York’s Governor from enforcing 10 and 25-person occupancy limits on religious institutions, granting a request from the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Agudath Israel.

The court had tweeted: Just before midnight on the night before Thanksgiving, the Supreme Court blocked Cuomo from enforcing attendance limits at religious places. The vote is 5 to 4 with Roberts and the 3 liberals dissenting.

Jews have hailed the verdict: "Free exercise of religion is a fundamental constitutional right."

Except for a few religious sects, the US conservative Republicans are the only ones across the world that staged countrywide violent protests against mask wearing and social distancing to prevent spread of coronavirus, as violations of individual freedom.
