FTA:The justices split 5-4 to bar the state from enforcing the restrictions against the groups for now, with new Justice Amy Coney Barrett in the majority. It was the conservative's first publicly discernible vote as a justice since she joined the court on October 26. The court's three liberal justices and Chief Justice John Roberts dissented. Slight correction needed. The court's 4 liberal justices dissented. Amy will be saving the day far into the future.

I remember Roberts, his wife and two small kids at a press event for either his nomination or confirmation. The miserable snarks at the NY Times, others perhaps, mocked his kids' clothes so sappy Roberts got the message early.

It would appear that in the absence of RBG, the SCOTUS now holds a 5-4 majority of justices that support the Constitution as written, not as it ought to be interpreted from a liberal dogma basis. Good. I hope that this commitment to the First Amendment is an indication that they will act in a similar manner when the liberals attempt to challenge the Second amendment, because it is clear that bad people want to remove from the Constitution: " the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Reading the headline with 5-4 vote made me wonder if Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg was still alive. Then reading it John Buzzy Roberts joined the run a muck liberals on the left and dissented. What a disappointing loser. Good for the Supreme Court and Justice Barrett.

In hindsight it is clear that the two Bushes made some terrible judicial nominations. In Roberts case I believe that before Bush nominated him to the Supreme Court that Roberts was a “deep state” DC bureaucratic functionary.

This is only the beginning. This is the way that the left has always done things. They go to court, when they had a majority, and legislate by court order. Well the tables have turned, let's see how they like it for the next forty years.

But we must pray for the health and welfare of all five of the constitutionalists--especially Clarance Thomas. The death of Scalia was a shock. May the Lord be pleased to keep us from such a shock again. Roberts has been, to say the least, a HUGE disappointment. But since GWB has confirmed his globalist upbringing, Roberts should be no surprise. He's another who forgot where he came from. KAG!!! Lord Jesus, please keep our fearless five safe from danger and strong in health!!! FOUR MORE YEARS!

How is this vote not unanimous? Winning is winning, sure, but it's so troubling that such a slam-dunk case can not find all the justices in agreement; that in and of itself proves the politicization of the court. Disappointing.

The Reuters agency says "where New York had capped attendance at 10 ". The Reuters agency as usual is wrong. It was one man, who was "elected" to govern the state's executive branch who made the decision. His last name is Cuomo, as I remember.

We have a 5-4 court. Let's just deal with that. If we get Roberts once in awhile, that's nice. Let's hope Justice Thomas and Alito remain healthy and wise through the next four years, assuming that we may have the reign of Joseph the Idiot and Kamala Hotsprings ahead of us.

Damn shame it took the addition of Barrett to achieve a conservative majority in the SCOTUS. But then, wasn't Roberts a Bush II appointee? Makes sense that Dubya screwed THAT up too.

In a 5-4 decision, the court’s conservative block of justices granted a temporary injunction requested by a Catholic Diocese and two Orthodox Jewish synagogues. By so doing, the court narrowly held that Cuomo’s regulations limiting attendance at religious services likely violated the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment.

The court ruled 5-4 to bar Cuomo from enforcing his Oct. 6 “Cluster Initiative” against houses of worship that sued to challenge the restrictions. The order was also the first in which Justice Amy Coney Barrett played a decisive role. Barrett, who was President Trump's third Supreme Court nominee, joined the court Oct. 27, after winning Senate confirmation following the Sept. 18 death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The practice of democracy in our constitutional republic flourishes in the presence of contradictions. Democracy, itself, is bound by our inalienable rights, bestowed to us by our Creator. These rights, not given to us by our government by any majority or by any vote, cannot be rescinded, for they were not wrought by man. Voting is a contradiction for it is both public and private at the same time. Its process is intended to be secret, but transparent. Its agency is intensely partisan, but its effect is intended to be unifying. The legitimacy of voting must survive despite the contradictions intrinsic to the process.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is blaming the new conservative majority on the Supreme Court for a decision late Wednesday against his state's COVID-19 restrictions on churches and places of worship. In remarks to reporters on Thursday, Cuomo said he thinks the ruling “was really just an opportunity for the court to express its philosophy and politics" and that it was making a "statement" with the vote. The court's five conservatives, including Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who was confirmed just before the Nov. 3 presidential election and replaced liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ruled against the New York measures.
